I took a few days off from work late last week for Miss C’s spring break. We stayed in Nashville (although we are all itching to go to the beach and we hopefully will later this summer) and did some fun things close to home.
I will spare ya’ll my personal pity party about not escaping to a warmer climate for spring break because I think the girls had a great time just venturing from the normal school and work routine. Plus we were fortunate enough to go on two fabulous beach trips last year to Sandestin and to St. Augustine. This year, however, we are really on a tight budget since we just had to replace our old Honda Civic. We also need to budget for necessary, yet extremely unfun things, like getting a massive old evergreen tree cut down in our backyard. And then there’s the whole geriatric dog issue. Bailey is doing much better but it’s a struggle for her to go through our dog door and I just can’t bring myself to research dog diapers just yet.
The girls tried geocaching for the first time with the hubby on Saturday and I think it’s going to be a big hit with them this summer. At some point I’ll write a post about what we’ve learned. The girls procured a rainbow Slinky and a super cool spy watch from their maiden geocaching expedition.
On a side note, HOLY BUNNY CRAP Easter is in less than two weeks!
The Easter Bunny better get to work soon or the girls will wake up to find raisins and bottled water in their baskets and maybe a leftover Dum Dum sucker from the bank drive thru.
Speaking of bunnies, here are a few pictures from our staycation spring break 2010.
What are you and your family doing for spring break?

Busted! This is right after I told Miss A to stop climbing up the slide.
