"This is the Best Day of my Life"
When mom is on spring break, life is a party. Last week I finished my maternity nursing class and next I have Pediatrics. This semester is the first to begin breaking up the nursing classes into seven week blocks, each having a six credit hour class. I love that because I think I can tolerate anything for seven weeks, and I only have one thing to concentrate on instead of spreading myself out over four or five classes. Anyway, the blocks are split between a week off, which is spring break. It is unfortunate that it doesn't correspond with the kids' spring break!
So this leads to Saturday. Ryan began the day snowmobiling up by Kamas. While he was gone, Ethan and Graham had friends over to play. When Ryan came home he took the boys and their friends swimming at the Rec Center. While they were gone I headed down to the little local Vietnamese shop for a Pedicure, not a care in the world! Everyone needs to recharge their batteries occasionally, whether it's through a couple hours of snowmobiling or an hour long pedicure.
When we all got back we took the boys to Chuck E Cheese, a slimy little place you may have heard of, which they think is the greatest thing in the world. The twins especially loved it this time, since they are finally getting old enough to appreciate arcade games and loved autonomy of having their own tokens to spend. When we were winding up the night Graham said, "This is the best day of my life!"
Boy, so easy to please! It reminds me how important it is though to enjoy family time together, and create good memories for your children, they grow so fast! Life is not always so extravagant, but we've got to enjoy the time while we have it...tonight we're going night skiing!
