Wild for Spring break

This year the girls spring break did not fall on the same week. Really, all this means is that I don't get any break for two weeks. This stinks! So while Lily was off school for last week, we put the "stay" in stay-cation. It was pretty lame I have to say but we did our best to keep busy and have a little fun. We started off with a bang, coloring easter eggs!
Both girls did really well this year. I can see how in the next few years this is going to be more and more fun for them both.
Gemma did a really good job, and Lily could have done two dozen eggs herself. She loves to craft.
Crazy eyes over here was proud of her results.
As much as they loved coloring the eggs when I served the product for lunch the next day they refused!
Here is the dozen beauties that Alex and I are slowly making our way through.
There was no lack of supplies for decorating the eggs once dry. We actually had about five different kits left over from previous years.
Our little chorus. You could almost play a bowling game with these cuties.
We were so lucky to have amazing weather on our break. We have pretty great weather year round but I have to say, Spring takes the cake in my book. I also got the girls new spring swim suits. There is NOTHING cuter than these girls in their swim suits.
I made a recipe for home made side walk paint. It is just corn starch, water, and food coloring.
The girls helped me make it, chose the colors, and had a ball painting.
Not bad for a free activity. Kept them busy for about 30 minutes.
Then we gotta go, go, go!
Gemma is a wild woman on this scooter. She has no fear and loves speed. Oh and no shoes or helmet in the back yard. Yikes!
Lily has out grown her bike but her lazy parents haven't gotten a bigger one without training wheels. Whoops!
We spent a lot of our week with this guy! Grandpa Lee and his new wheels! We took him to costco to get supplies for his easter church lunch and he treated us all to a hot dog. Who said we didn't have any fun?
 We did make easter shape cookies and decorated them. Lily is getting very good at this and likes to make it nice and neat.
 This little fire cracker likes to pile on the frosting, mountains of sprinkles, and lots of finger licking in between. Gotta love her!
 Not too bad for an end result. Don't worry, all finger licking cookies were set aside and not fed to company.
 On Friday of break we treated ourselves and went to the indoor play place. These girls (and their friend Makayla) played for hours and hours.
 We refueled with lunch before a couple more hours of playing. Everyone slept well that night. All geared up for Easter weekend.
It looks like a lot of fun and excitement in pictures!
