one, two, wheeeee!

it's spring break so we took the day to "break" since we are staying in town all week. we headed to the park for some walking (pretend hiking) and we were hoping the kids would run off some energy. we jumped out of the car, ben grabbed sarah and caleb's hands and you could see he had a plan....

"one, two, wheeeeeee!"

boy, some things take you right back to childhood. everyone did this growing up...it's nice to know some things don't change when it comes to kids. (puddles, bugs, sticks, swinging, driving your brother and/or sister nuts, anything that has to do with potty, laughing until milk comes out of something other than your mouth, stickers, crayons...)

oh, i'm not trying to sell you on us being the perfect family today...far from it...halfway up the hill i bossed caleb about holding the dog leash, ben slipped and fell, sarah...hmmm, sarah just made caleb mad (which made sarah happy), rob convinced us that he found a "trail" that led through some trees...i'll let you guess how that one turned out.

we had our moments...some good, some not so good, but that pretty much sums up our parenting. i'm hoping the kids will remember the "wheeeeeeee".

How fun! I love the park, however, the girls don't like to sweat. Imagine that! We are on spring break for the next 2 weeks too. Not sure what our plans are with grandmas being under the weather. Enjoy yours!!!
