Spring Break - Went by Way Too Fast!

A couple of weeks ago, I asked Cade what he wanted for his birthday. He said he wanted a Nintendo DS. No problem, I got it, wrapped it, and had it ready to go to the beach with us. When we went to church on Easter Sunday, though, they had a drawing in the children's service and guess who won? You guessed it! Cade! So what did he win? Why, a Nintendo DS, of course. We couldn't believe it! He was so excited, he could hardly contain himself. Works for me, I'm going to return the other one and get my money back! Thank goodness I had gotten him a game also, so he had something to open.



We left for the beach that afternoon, and had a great time. It was a little chilly for my liking, but we had a really good time. Cade had his birthday while we were there, so he got to pick a whole day's activities. We played putt-putt, rode go-carts, played tennis and baseball, swam, ate at Lamberts and saw Horton Hears a Who (not the most exciting movie I've ever seen!). We had a great time. Here are some of the pictures I took:
While the boys were doing this...


The parents were doing this...

They were crazy. The water was freezing! They didn't stay in for long, and this is what they looked like when they got out...


This is what our poor waiter was subjected too during our visit to Lamberts. If you've never been there, they throw rolls to you across the room, and they try to play practical jokes on you. Cade and Braden were daring him to try to get them. It was pretty funny. I think the little guy was new, and he didn't quite know what to do with these two. So funny.



Here's one more, this is the view from the condo.



Well, that was spring break. I can't believe it's already over! The good news is, we have a baseball tournament this weekend! I can't wait to get out there. The weather is supposed to be great. My in-laws come today, also. We have a very busy weekend ahead. Just the way I like it!

Hope you have a great weekend!!
