Spring Break

This week is Spring Break in our neck of the woods. And even though Preston is only in pre-K he gets a break from school too. Today is usually a school day and since it was kind of cold and damp out we decided to break out the playdough for a little fun. Of course Mommy has to limit the fun to just the circle of the snowman table cloth. It's still fun, but contained fun.

Preston showing off his sea urchin with pink hair.

This was Connor's first playdough experience so he's still just checking it out.
(Oh and we were originally going to make slime out of cornstarch but that was a big fat fail, so we got out the playdough. So now you know why Connor has white stuff all over him.)

Making more sea urchin hair.

Checking out the various playdough tools.

After Connor's nap and lunch for everybody the sun came out a little so we decided to go for a walk.

Connor sporting a new hat, which came off several times during the walk. Along with the shoes.

Preston and Connor all ready to go.

Since there were no neighbor kids to hang out with, we decided to walk to the Shell gas station and get ourselves a treat.

Preston picked a Push-Up! (My favorite when I was a kid. Check out that retro wrapper too!)

Connor and I went with the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich. Yum!

Hey Connor, save some for Mommy!

It looks like a fun spring break so far! Your boys are looking so handsome!

Thought immediately about walking 2 miles to get you a push up and I would get the crunch bar. I also remember you getting push ups from the ice cream truck in Carl Junction,too.

Aww, how fun! I love the tablecloth idea for playdough. I didn't realize how alike the boys look. They are precious. Thanks for sharing!!
