The boys started their Spring Break a few days ago and we have been trying to make use of all the activities we can get in while we have some time together. The weather has been so weird the last week, storming one day, drizzles the next and then warm but breezy… so we’ve been trying to get in some outdoor time while the weather is reasonably nice.
On Saturday we went to the park to play on the playground and throw the balls around some. The boys love any form of sports so it is always nice to get out and toss the baseball or basketball around and just enjoy the warm sun. The great thing about our boys is that they are so content with just having family time together – that it doesn’t matter where we go or what we do so long as we are doing it as a family. Since the boys tend to spend more time with me then their dad with his work schedule, they look forward to weekends at the moment since their daddy has that time off currently.
Isaiah absolutely loved tossing the ball around with is daddy and brothers. Each of the boys have their own gloves so we like to play catch when time permits to help build their eye and hand coordination – but also because it’s really fun.
With basketball season for my eldest Kevin starting in a week, it’s always nice to get out and have some park time. Once basketball starts – just like football, most of our family time is consumed by practice and games. Because of this we try to take advantage of our time together before sports’ season starts because sometimes the hustle and bustle of everyday life and activity can take over and leave us without much time to ourselves together as a family.
“Mommy, take my picture!” Luke is such a ham. All my boys are but Luke will always ask me if I can take his picture or if he can be on camera. I love it and love that he has such an outgoing personality.
It was nice to get out to the park and playground for a few hours on Saturday and I’m glad we were able to utilize the nice weather. It was a bit chilly and breezy, but the sun was still shining enough for us to get in some good play time. I especially love that the park is so large that we can literally throw our blanket on the ground or pull out our fold up chairs and just have a nice relaxing day. I have one more week with the boys on Spring Break (they were given 3 extra days this year) so I’m looking forward to making the best out of it as I can. My big boy is going off to a Spring Break program at the school which starts tomorrow so he’ll be in school from 8am – 3pm each day for the next 5 days. It will be mostly the twins and I while the hubby is at work. Either way, we are going to make the best of it.
Ooh – first day of Spring was yesterday too… one of my favorite seasons! 😉
