Our kids had Spring Break last week and we made the most of it. On Monday, Jed took the motorhome (courtesy of his parents) and the kids up to Bogus Basin, our local ski hill, to ski all day. Zoe and I met them up there later to have a bonfire and roast hotdogs and marshmallows. We also went sledding down one of the runs since it was after hours. That was a blast. We hiked up most of the way and then sledded down. We went so fast I got a brain freeze!! Then I took the girls home and Jed and Tucker and his friend Cole spent the night and skied the next day. Tuesday night we had a family sleepover at our friends house and then went to a hot springs the next day. Thursday we took some time to relax and recoup and the kids played with some friends and then Friday was a fun filled day. First we started out bowling. Stella kicked our trash with a score of 95. All day long she referred to herself as "the winner". In fact, when she went to bed that night she said, "Well, I guess it's time for the winner to go to bed now". I am glad she didn't let it go to her head :-). After bowling we took our kids to a new Brazillian grill that we love. They had a blast. They bring around all kinds of meats and grilled pineapple and they have an all you can eat huge salad bar as well. Stella even tried the chicken heart. Hallie's favorite was the pineapple. After lunch we went to the movie theater and saw Monsters vs. Aliens. Jed fell asleep and I wanted to. Tucker liked it though. I would say, don't waste your money unless you are dying to see it. Then on Saturday we had soccer and and they played some more with friends. Sunday was a day of recouping and when it was time to go back to school the kids said they needed another spring break to recover. I think that makes for a successful spring break don't you?
