Spring Break was originally going to be spent in Rigby painting with my sister but plans changed. Piper has been begging to go to Nana's house for awhile so I decided we should go to Salt Lake as well. Plus the drive to Salt Lake is shorter than the drive back to Boise anyway AND it was Easter. You can't argue with that logic. Then my sister changed her plan from painting to recovering chairs so I decided to spend a night at my parent's house on the way. So we went from Boise to Arco to Rigby to Salt Lake back to Boise.
At my parent's house my mom made roast and mashed potatoes for dinner (my favorite). The kids went on an Easter egg hunt and watched the Cartoon Network. I helped my mom do some touch up painting around the house and we watched Catch Me if You Can and visited that night. We headed over to Rigby in the morning. For two days our kids played and played and Trisha and I worked on her chairs and chatted away. It was great. We ended each night with a movie.
On Thursday we headed down to Salt Lake. Scott flew down and met us there. We went to Hires for lunch. Unfortunately I was starting to feel lousy because I hadn't slept well so far on the trip. I stayed home and took a 3 hour nap while the kids went swimming. I felt crummy the rest of the day and through the night but felt better after that. On Friday Nana dyed Easter eggs with the kids and made Easter candy. That evening we headed down to Provo for dinner and to celebrate Greta's birthday. The kids had a fun time playing the arcade games and going on the Merry Go Round. After we put the kids to bed Scott and I went over to see Mandy and Cory's condo and had a great chat with them well into the night.
On Saturday we went to the Gecko exhibit at the museum. It was pretty cool. I think I could MAYBE handle having a gecko as a pet. Nana took the big three kids to the movie that afternoon (I needed a nap after such a late night). That evening Janet made Easter dinner early so the Boise Cannons could be there. We had dinner and then had a dance party at Nicole and Rustin's house. On Sunday we had Easter brunch and a Easter egg hunt and headed home. It was a great Spring Break but I'm so glad to be home. Being home is the BEST!
