Spring Break!

I feel a little blah today but I wanted to write down what we did over spring break so I wouldn't forget. Rachel is over at her Nanny's right now so I have a little bit of time.

Last Saturday we had a whatever Rachel wanted to do day. We played racing, finger painted, and read. I let her pick because usually Saturdays are spent doing laundry, grocery shopping, and cleaning. I think she really enjoyed having mommy all to herself.

Sunday we hung out during the day and then went to Elizabeth's birthday party. Eleanor made lasagna and the kids got to play. Rachel always enjoys spending time with her cousins.

Monday we were going to go to the San Antonio zoo, but we ended up going to the Austin zoo with Lori and Hannah and Hayden. The kids had tons of fun looking at the animals and riding the train. It was a lot nicer than I thought it was going to be, but very crowded. We will have to go back some time.

Tuesday we went to Chuck E Cheese and then to the bookstore to get some Easter books. Rachel always loves going to CEC.

Wednesday we went to get ice cream and then play at the park that is by our house.

Thursday we went shopping with Nana, Rachel got some new shoes, and then Rachel spent the night with Nana and Papa. She did really well, but woke up at 3 in the morning and wouldn't go back to sleep. That is the first night ever that we have spent the night away from each other.

Friday I got my hair done and then picked Rachel up at my parents. They had gone to CEC with Eleanor and Elizabeth and Benjamin. Then we came home and tried to rest.

So it does actually snow here from time to time. This was especially exciting because it was actual snow! It was light fluffy snowflakes. Unfortunately I was at school, and we didn't get to leave early. Daran left early though and picked up Rachel from school, and they came home and made a snow man. They had a lot of fun playing in the snow. By the time I got home from work, they were both inside and the snow was melting. It was really pretty while it lasted.
The date on these pictures is wrong, it should be Feb. 23.
The next morning I woke up not feeling so great, and it turns out I had strep throat and missed school for three days. I was miserable, the sickest I had been in a long time.
