Spring Break

We are totally submersed in the remodel and planned to have our Spring Break just working on the house. We hired most everything out but we were going to do the painting ourselves. We thought the schedule was going to work out perfectly for us to have Spring Break to paint. But not so. I forgot how long the process of mudding and drying for the drywall can take. We did take one day to go do something fun with the kids. We went to Columbus and bowled, and then ate out at Waffel House for lunch.  It was good to get out of the house. 

 I loved watching Chris help Frederick bowl.. those little bums are sticking out are the cutest.

Charlie spent his own money on a virtual roller coaster game. That kid spends money so easily, on the funniest things.

We had sort of planned to go camping one night someone local but it was SO COLD AND RAINY. We mostly ended up staying inside our little playroom, watching movies and making messes.  We had my good friend's teenage daughter stay with us for a couple of nights since her family left for New Orleans and she wanted to stay to attend the multi-stake dance in Birmingham. We took advantage of a babysitter in the house and after the kids were in bed Chris and I went out to eat and then stopped by Lowes to check out this or that for the remodel. On Saturday, we drove her out to Birmingham early and took her up on her offer to babysit the kids for us so we could do a session at the temple together! It was great.  Its always a long day to drive 6 hours and have 2 hours at the temple, but it feels good to be in such a quiet and peaceful place.
