The only way to properly describe our Spring break was cousins, cousins and more cousins (that was cheesy, yes, but there were 13 cousins at my house, 11 staying in my home. That means 17 kids all together when you count in my 4). It was awesome. I don't think the kids could have had more fun.
With so many 'cousins', us moms needed a break. Thank goodness for Lifetime pool and the 2 hour child care that they offer! We got to sit by the pool (sans kids) and catch up. It was really nice and much needed.
I don't know how we did, but we managed to take all those kids hiking. We are crazy, and fun, and then just really crazy. Luckily only 1 child was hurt by a cactus and everyone made it back in 1 piece.
Crystal and Dayna had to head back up to Utah, and the kids had to sadly say goodbye to some of their cousins.
Later that week we went out to the lake for the day.
Both my dad's and my sister Katy's birthday fell on this week so we all went out to celebrate. We went to the Wynn and it was probably the best dinner I have ever eaten. I was a really good night.
We are so thankful that out family came to visit us that week. They all traveled a long way (especially Shannon- who flew alone with 4 kids!!! She's a saint). It was a week we won't forget and hope to have again!!
