Spring Break!



This cute photo was taken at Abbey's birthday party yesterday at Build-a-Bear workshop! Very cute, huh? I think we can call an official end to the birthday week and enjoy our week of Spring Break!!!

The snow stopped Saturday afternoon and melted very quickly, and yesterday temps were in the 60s. Spring-like weather is on tap for the first part of this week and we intend to get outside, ride bikes, and picnic at the park amongst other things! It was so nice this morning to wake up and realize that I had nowhere to be and nothing to do ALL day. I haven't had a day like that in such a long time. And I think we all need days like that more than we realize.

Our kids have been watching the "Grease: You're the One We Want" show for a couple of months now. If you're not familiar with it, it's basically a large casting-call where men/women audition for the roles of Danny/Sandy on live tv, and week after week, America votes to choose who the Danny/Sandy they want to see in the Broadway production of Grease opening this summer. We don't let our kids watch too much stuff like that, but this one has been kinda fun, and they're very hooked on it. Last night was the final episode and the 2 lucky roles were awarded to very talented people. Abbey got the soundrack to Grease for her birthday and her favorite song is "Greased Lightning" and she walks around singing and dancing to it these days. She puts on quite a show, let me tell you. Sarah's favorite tune is "Hopelessly Devoted" and Will likes "We Go Together" (or track number 22). They're upstairs listening to it right now. They keep asking when we'll let them see the movie, and we keep telling them it will be a loooonnnnnnggggggg time before we say "yes" to that, but they think they're cool listening to the music. Very funny.
