Spring Break!

It’s Monday night at 7:03 pm.  Tomorrow, one kid goes back to school after a 2 week Spring Break.  Another kid has just started his Spring Break.  Totally different calendars.  Too many days with one too many kids at home.  It’s 7:03 pm on Monday night – and I’ve put the boys to bed.  They were shocked when they looked at the clock and saw how early it was.  I told them if I didn’t put them in bed now I would officially go crazy and walk out the front door.  There was something about the way I said it – maybe a look in my eye – but they believed me.  And didn’t fight me on it.  Right now they are doing the usual – both on the top bunk, lifting the mattress up and making a fort.  I don’t care.  Cole, my little angel, is asleep in his ‘big boy’ bed.

We spent a couple days in Florida, where we met up with Grandma JJ and Grandpa Steve.  It started off shaky, in Ft. Lauderdale.  The hotel might have been a cruise ship.  I’m shocked how obese Americans really are.  And how many tattoos these people have.  We were not impressed with the hotel, the food, and the atmosphere – so, in true posh fashion, we headed to Palm Beach.  The Breakers, our favorite home away from home, had a last minute cancelation so we were able to check in!  But not before Graham fell off the back of a chaise lounge smack on his head, EMT were called, stretchers were brought in, fire engines followed.  He was fine.  The hotel couldn’t have be nicer (or more scared of a lawsuit.)  Gift baskets of cookies, chips and candies arrived, phone calls were made wishing Graham well – maybe I should’ve asked for a free night. If I liked that hotel…  Just kidding. It was totally Peter’s fault. I was with a napping Cole in the room. HaHa!

Florida was awesome. The sun and warmth was much needed.

Cole spilled a smoothie on his pants. Luckily we had a back-up pair. But he peed in those on the plane. Out of luck.

He peed while sleeping on the plane - Luckily I had a random diaper in the bottom of my bag, so he didn't have to walk around LGA naked.  Just pants-less.
