Day 2 and we were going, going, going.
What I love about these school breaks is that we finally have the time to do the baking, outings, and playing that we just don't have time for during the school week. And if it seems like we are running like crazy and doing SO much this spring break . . . it's because I know that during our next break (summer) it will be just too hot to do a lot of things so we have to squeeze it in now!
Today we needed to bake. Oh my, I found the cutest idea for spring cupcakes over at Our Best Bites and we copied their cuteness in it's entirety -- right down to the packaging!
Everyone was assigned a job - crush oreos, color the coconut, make carrots (from Starburst!)
and paint egg cartons
Then we set up a nice assembly nice -- Anna frosted the mini cupcakes and the boys decorated.
Anna: "It's like we are a cupcake shop!"
This is where the cuteness reaches epic proportions -- mini spring cupcakes packaged in an egg carton!
You can't look at this and not smile.
Then we hopped into the van and drove around delivering these little cuties to a few people from church (visiting teaching friends, primary teachers . . . ).
And because we did not get in enough bouncing at the trampoline center yesterday, we made our way to an indoor bounce activity center. (Really, I just had another groupon we needed to use).
Everyone had a great time and got very, very sweaty. And Anna may have peed her pants, just a little. They were all in desperate need of showers when we got home.
The sister missionaries joined us for dinner. We had sweet and sour chicken (click on the link for the recipe - so so so good!), rice, fruit salad, broccoli, and fortune cookies.
Later, around 7pm, the kids jumped on the trampoline. They love going out for an early evening jump. But we usually have to go out there and end it when the noise level gets out of control. Both of our neighbors are retired and I'm not sure they appreciate the commotion!
