Spring Break 2014!

This past week was spring break.  I am going to recap all week in one post.

Day 1 & 2 ~ These days were exciting for me because I was able to start a new journey (again) with Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital.  As part of the hiring and starting to work process, I had to attend hospital orientation on these two days.  After being there previously (with a 1 year break) for nearly 5 years, this was just a big review for me.  I love this hospital!  It truly is one of the best places I have ever worked.  I am so glad I was given the opportunity to come back with my people!  I work my first shift on the 25th!!

Day 3 ~ This was Lauren's actual birthday!  We took Rachel and Hannah to "school" and then we had a day for just the two of us.  We went to Rainforest Cafe at the Grapevine Mills Mall.
That is her yearly birthday lunch pick.  It was CRAZY crowded because it was spring break and after waiting for 40 minutes, I realized that I am a Landry's Club Member and we could have sat down immediately!  Ha!  O'well, we had fun shopping while we waited.  We ate lunch and then we headed to the carousel.  Mommy stopped in the Ann Taylor Loft outlet and bought some clothes.  **Side note** I found out that you shouldn't take your 5 year old shopping with you because she will go home and tell Daddy that Mommy bought a bunch of clothes! :)  Anyway, Lauren rode the carousel and then we headed back home.
We came home and rested for a little while and then it was time to go get the sisters.  Lauren picked Chapps for her birthday dinner because she said it was Daddy's favorite place.  :)

Day 4 ~  This day I kept Lauren and Rachel home from school so that I could spend some time with them.  In all of my planning for the week, I completely forgot that I had Bible study on Thursday morning.  We had planned a playdate with Logan and Lucas that afternoon so Kaydi volunteered to keep the the girls while I went to Bible study.  They played and had a great time.  They miss their friends. When I was finished, we all went to Pump It Up for some jumping fun!  It was crowded...just like every other place in the metroplex for kids this week.  Kaydi and I got to visit and it was a breath of fresh air...an answer to prayers.  God is good and is the Author of forgiveness, healing, and reconciliation.  We went home and rested and then picked up Hannah.  Brice had to work late so I took the girls to IHOP to eat dinner.  They wanted breakfast and I didn't want to cook.  It was a good day.

Day 5 ~ Daddy stayed home today!!  He was planning to just stay home 1/2 the day but ended up staying all day.  The girls (all 3) loved it!!  In the morning, we went to the donut shop (Hannah's favorite place) and took our donuts to the park and ate them.  Then we went to a different park and played.  We were the only ones there for about an hour.  We played and then went home.  For lunch, we got Chick Fil A.  Daddy worked a little while on his computer, and all of the girls took naps.  :)  Then we met Justin and Tonya at Chuck E. Cheese for dinner and play!!  And....it was super crowded!  SHOCKER! :)

Saturday wasn't what I would consider part of spring break but it was Lauren's birthday party.  I will post about the party later.  We had a great week and going back to school is going to be hard this next week....for everyone.
