I'd have to say, the highlight of our Spring Break was looking for worms and bird watching.
For once I didn't plan any big events or excursions and it was perfect. The kids were delighted with wearing pajamas for half the day, jumping in puddles, going to my sister's lacrosse game, playing hide-and-seek, and shooting marshmallows all around the house with a marshmallow shooter gun.
My son and I also got to have a mommy & me date to his friend's birthday party. Liz of Made on Maple threw a raging 4-year-old party and we were so stoked to be invited! Many of you know Liz from her blog and her amazing 100 Acts of Kindness Heart Attack challenge that she shared with us back in February. She's a super crafty and creative mom and made every party goer a birthday shirt to take home... plus she made a bunch of pvc pipe marshmallow shooters for the kids to explore. My son wouldn't even put the shooter down to take a picture with the birthday boy. What an awesome party!
