Spring Break Vacation 2011

Saturday, March 5, 2011
After much debate on where to go for our Spring Break get-a-way we ended up having a sort of staycation... We camped at Tyler State Park and took the boys to do all kinds of fun things in Tyler! It was a BLAST! We had the best family time over the last few days and really enjoyed not having to drive too far. We started Saturday and spent most the day in Tyler...

Lunch at Carino's
YuMmY DeSSeRT!!!
This was the boy's first time to go bowling and they LOVED it!
Abram was really good!  He beat us ALL!!  He scored a 123!
Asher was pretty good, too!  He scored a 67!

Next Putt Putt Golf...
The boys were WILD!  They were everywhere!  Rules? What Rules?! Ha!  But they had an AwEsOmE time so that's all that mattered!

Killing some time at Best Buy before our movie. :)
Then we went to see Gnomeo & Juliet.  
It was a great movie and the whole day was fantastic!

Today we spent time enjoying Tyler State Park and relaxing at our campsite.  Here's a look at all the FuN things we did today.

Riding Bikes...
Eating around the campfire...
Feeding the ducks...
Playing at the playground...
Look at my little monkey boy!  He is so good at the monkey bars and very determined!  He just kept trying until he did it perfect every time!  
Paddle boating...
Asher couldn't handle the FuN any longer!  He was out within minutes and missed most of the boat ride. Ha!
Me and My Honey in our matching shirts!  LoL! 
And Abram being silly and sneaky!
Abram wanted to try peddling.  His legs weren't long enough so I had to sit him in my lap and push him forward.  It would have been easier for me to just peddle myself!  Ha Ha!  But he did GREAT!

Honeywana & Pops, Cameron, Christina, Cason & Conleigh came out for dinner tonight. We grilled burgers, sat around the campfire, ate s'mores and watched the camp locals.
Rico taking the kids on a coon hunt.
Honeywana coming in with some bait.
I think they found something...
Abram, Get Out Here!!!
Look who came to visit!  One of MANY!!  The raccoons are HEALTHY at TSP!! LOL! The kids loved watching them come right up to our campsite! Conleigh was hilarious! She kept saying "Come here, Kitty Cat."  She wasn't scared at all but is deathly afraid of bugs and pretty much everything else.
Family time around a campfire - Nothing better! :)

This morning we headed to IHOP for breakfast and Man, can these boys EAT!!!  Next time we're gonna have to order more food!  They love breakfast!  We always eat at IHOP on vacation so we had to keep tradition on our "staycation" too! ;)  After that we headed to "the hand place" otherwise known as The  Discovery Science Place.  

Little Anchors 
Abram was cooking and taking my order then he says "Ok, Ma'am.  That'll be up in a gypsy!"  So funny! 
Abram is a rock climbing MaCHiNe!!!
And such a helpful BiG Bro!  Good Job, Asher!!
Abram, Mommy & Asher ~ incognito! 
The BoYs playing dress-up.  Asher is a cowboy and Abram thinks he's a hip hop/rock n'roll guy.  He was break dancing and rapping.  
It was so cute!
And then they switched!  Abram sang the whole Big Green Tractor song for us and Asher did the break dancing thang!  They are too FuNNy!!!
Firefighters!  Of course!!
Our AwEsOmE campfire
It was GREAT because it was COLD!
Movie Time!!!

More time at camp eating, biking, playing at the playground...  Such great family memories!  We are really building so many wonderful memories and traditions with our boys!  There is nothing better than these moments we are creating with our family.
The only way to camp!!! ;)
