As much as I think it will be fun to one day take my family on a fun excursion for spring break – I would take spending time with friends over an excursion any day. (Spending time with friends on an excursion would be the golden ticket!) My friend and college roommate lives 6 hours away and they made time to come see us one last time before they move in two months. They came for a visit last summer and at Halloween/temple open house and now for spring break.
I thought by showing them all the amazing things Arizona has to offer that maybe they would consider a move here when they’re done with school. But sadly, this might be the last time we live close. I’m not happy about it and my kids aren’t happy about it.
The weather was warm enough that the kids got in the pool and stayed in the pool. This is not typical in March – we’re in for a long summer!
Our 13 orange trees are ripe with goodness and the kids were determined to juice enough oranges to make popsicles. I was cringing watching them as I saw bits of dirt and grass fall into the orange juice but they were as happy as could be. I strained out the grass later.
We love the zoku popsicle maker.
Later that afternoon we went to our favorite park/splash pad. There is never ending fun and kids of all ages enjoy themselves. The older kids climbed high enough that they were scared to go any further.
And the littles stayed close and splashed around. Rather all the kids but Cannon splashed around; he refused to get wet!
These two crack me up. Four weeks a part and they’re nothing but trouble. With their high pitch squeals and stealing each others sippy cups and food; they were a riot.
And that was just the first day!
