Thursday Thirteen - My #8 - Spring Break!

Thirteen Highlights from this Spring Break!

1. E's birthday! We had a blast celebrating it all week long!

2. Being at the farm. Riding and learning to drive a 4-wheeler! Playing baseball, football, basketball with the kids. Sitting on the tin-roofed front porch watching and listening to the rain. Cooking out.

3. Walking and exploring in the woods and just being outside together.

4. Spending a day and a half with my brother-in-law, sister-in-law and niece. We had fun being together at the farm.

5. Spending an afternoon on the floor with my son and daughters building with Lincoln Logs, Magnetix, and Legos. Sitting on the couch with B while both of us read our own books. Relaxing, good times.

6. Getting caught up on laundry! That only happens on Christmas break, Spring break and over the summer! It's a huge relief.

7. I read 3 books and 2 magazines! I never have time to read! It was nothing heavy. I just read three light, humorous novels from Janet Evanovich. I thoroughly enjoyed them!

8. Watching N play ball. My other 2 children had no practice due to Spring Break, but N's coach called a practice. It was a beautiful night and we had fun being outside and watching her play.

The rest of this hasn't happened as of Thursday Thirteen time. So, I guess this now turns into "Thirteen Things I Expect Will be Highlights of Spring Break!"

9. Going to Pigeon Forge with my kids, husband, and parents. We'll have fun being together!

10. Going to 3 shows while we're there- Black Bear jamboree, Comedy Barn, and the Dixie Stampede.

11. Going to the Gatlinburg Aquarium. My kids and my dad especially love aquariums. I can't wait to visit it with them.

12. I'm looking forward to having a quiet cabin in the woods with a hot tub to relax in!

13. Easter Sunday. When I planned this trip, I didn't realize it was over Easter weekend. However, I think it will be very appropriate and special to celebrate Easter Sunday with family in the middle of God's beautiful mountain creations!
