It turned out to be a gorgeous day!!

Macy had off school yesterday and today for conferences. I didn't need to go to a conference for her, so that's nice!!

I decided last night that I'd take them to Hershey today since Chris would be working. Well, we woke up around 9am and it was raining pretty hard, so I had to think of alternative plans! The rain ended up stopping and it turned out to be a gorgeous day with a high of 60 degrees!! We'll try to hit Hershey during the spring break next week!

We went to IHOP for lunch. They have special Horton Hears a Who foods right now. Jack had the "who-cakes" minus the green eggs and ham! He loved them! They have some pink and blue boysenberry syrup on them plus sprinkles and a bubble gum lollipop! Can't beat that!!

Then we went to the mall for our yearly Easter Bunny picture!! Jack kept giving the bunny kisses! This is the best of 4 pics that they took.

We had to go to AC Moore too to get me a new heat gun. The little monster decided to play with mine and I think he burned it out!! grrr . . .

Came home to have some craft time. Since it was gorgeous, we did it outside! I bought some little dollar family shadowboxes last week, so we painted those. Jack's started out nice and colorful like Macy's, but whenever he paints, he smooshes all the colors together then and winds up with a lovely shade of gray!

I did some much needed yard cleanup while they painted, then they helped me after they were finished!! We've got one side of the house done, we'll work on the rest over the weekend if it's still nice out!!!

It was definately too beautiful of a day to be inside!!! We were out for hours and it was so nice!! Yay for spring coming!!!

Jack got his preschool pics back last week, so I'll leave you with that!!!

Have a great weekend!!!
