Spring Break - Days 8 & 9

The last two nights we have slept in the camper in the driveway. Now we just need to get the van up to towing capability so we can go camp somewhere! I'm really looking forward to that! Here are the girls all nestled in for a good night's sleep.Saturday was spent running errands (mostly me), figuring out some of the camper's systems (mostly Jason), doing some bike riding, movie watching, etc. We did all go run an errand late in the day and decided to pick up Chick-fil-A for dinner and take it to a local elementary school playground for a picnic and some play time.We also checked out some wildlife that was hanging around the picnic tables - caterpillars.Afterward it was time to go home, take baths, and go to sleep - in the camper again. I think the girls have been sleeping pretty well in the camper. The first night Heidi came completely out of her sleeping bag - it was actually on the floor. So she said she was a little cold. Both nights Rachel has said she didn't want to sleep in the camper. But she hasn't complained long about it. In fact last night Jason was going to lay down with her for a little bit and when I turned out the light, she told him he should go sleep in his bed. :-) And she was fine. We are a little concerned about our noise factor with 3 boisterous little girls at a campsite. We'll have to go in the off-season or something.

This morning we woke to a glorious Easter morning. We attended our 9AM family service which was powerful. Then we drove up to Dahlonega to gather with my family for Easter and to celebrate my grandmother's 96th birthday! It was a fun time to be together.

We tried to get a family picture, but let's just say we are still in the phase of life that it's difficult to get everyone to cooperate. We took about 10 and this is the best of the bunch. Maybe next year...Then I was hoping to get a picture of the girls together, but... So here they are individually. :-)And 2 out of 3 with Daddy.We had a delicious lunch together and then celebrated Grandmommy's birthday!The girls with Grammy & Great Gram!Lastly it was time for Easter baskets and some final egg hunting of the season.I don't know how many rounds we did but it varied from Grammy and some of the older cousins hiding them for the younger cousins, to the youngest cousins "hiding" them for their moms, and every combination in between. It was fun.

Well, that's a wrap on Spring Break. The girls are in bed and it's back to the routine tomorrow. It's been a fun week and I've enjoyed documenting it here. I think I've maxed out my blogging for awhile - you may not see another post until May, but we'll see.
