Spring Break - Florida


We may not have been able to see the Space Shuttle Endeavor launch (since it was delayed) but we had a really nice time visiting with Pete's Grandma and then Umpah and NanaJan.
There are two albums below with pictures from our trip. We had beautiful weather the entire trip.
Last night after landing in Omaha and loading up in the car, Ben says "you know what the only one bad thing about going to another state is? Coming home." We all agreed. Today is cold and rainy and I think we all wish we were still in sunny Florida - but I do miss my Tally and Ben is ready to see Bailey.

Dirty rats

The boys must have had issues with me sleeping last night. Cloudy first woke up at 2, by 2:15 I thought I had successfully returned him back to the sandman. Around 2:30 I had not one but TWO boys at the side of my bed WIDE AWAKE -- and they stayed that way until 4:30. As I clung to the bed to keep from falling completely off, since they both decided to sleep ON my pillow!!
Pete woke up around 4:30 and quickly sent them back to their beds, where he ended up sleeping for the next hr and I was able to reclaim bed surface.

Classic Cloudy

Ms Chrissy at school took pictures of the kids in her class to put on flowers on the door. This is Cloudys - classic pouty face.

bubbles

Yesterday Ben attended a birthday party and received bubbles...and as he was playing with them in the front yard today -- Cloudy walked around saying "bubbles".  Yay to another word.



Drink thief!  

doesn't he look like a miniature monster here... 

Cloudy wore flip flops today!  It's been THAT nice - finally!

First Camping trip of 2011

 This weekend was our first camping trip of the season, and it was FANTASTIC! The weather was nicer than forecasted, and Ben learned to ride his bike without training wheels!! We flew kites, the boys went hiking, we played t-ball, and roasted smores.






We have some pretty groovy friends that like to go camping, and like to go with us. Crazy I know! Cloudy must've missed them over the winter months b/c I caught him several times loving on Nikki and sitting in Dave's bunny hole (aka LAP). They were even nice enough to watch the boys for us Saturday while we went on a 14mi run. We looped around the campsite 5 times and after the first loop Pete noticed Dave & Nikki had set up a water station for us - table and all! When we finished we all walked over to the lake and watched Pete as he waded in the cold water and stood there for 10 minutes. Nut job!
