Spring Break

Here's our Spring break in pictures:

 Look mom! I'm Spider-man!
 Two darling friends playing at the park
 Working on her piano theory while still in her pj's. Such a good girl
 How'd she get up there?
 My friend Emily threw an awesome Irish Party for St. Patrick's Day. The kids got to go on a fun scavenger hunt, make rainbow necklaces, and thumb print clover cards. My kids had a blast- there were even green snacks! (I'm so glad we did this, because I totally dropped the ball with St. Patrick's Day and did NOTHING) yikes... :/
And hey- here's Emily. She ran a 10k race with my on Saturday. It was my very first 10k actually. SO FUN! I was going to take it easy since I have a half marathon this upcoming Saturday, but when we got to the turn around and I counted how many ladies were in front of me, I decided to pick it up so I could maybe place. I got 3rd in my age group- and some major negative splits! First mile 8:16- but third mile was 7:28. Slowed down to a 7:39 for mile 6- but it was okay since I passed all the ladies I could see. :)
 Quinn's tooth fell out!!! That thing was hanging by a thread for DAYS, so I was so happy when it came out!
 Veda is learning to hold her own with Hendrix
 This baby prays more than anybody I know.
 I took the kids to Jason's Deli for dinner one night. Dave was actually gone ALL week at South by Southwest- I was so tired of doing dinner and cleanup and baths and bedtime alone. So this was a special treat to keep my sanity :)
 And Dave had a birthday (Which we celebrated early since SXSW was starting and he was gone on his birthday). Doesn't he look great?! He just gets better and better looking every year ;)
 Baby fairies playing piano
 Driving on the shuttle bus to get to the zoo
 We went to the Waco zoo with some friends. It was a very fun day!
 Butterfly boy
It was a good week! I had an ear infection (totally stinks), and Dave was gone all week (also totally stinks), but we did lots of fun things with lots of fun friends. And I LOVE that Spring break fell on Daylight Savings... it made the time change SO much easier!!

What a great Spring break (except for the ear infection)! Great pics and cute kids. Congrats on the race. You're an inspiration to me even though I'm not a runner.
