Now, let's get this started . . .
SPRING BREAK FUN
We took the boys bowling (for free) but made up for the freebie by going to Medieval Times Restaurant. Kids ate free during Spring Break, but we still dropped a load of cash that we would NEVER usually spend on food (tax season does bring perks. lol) **We opted for Medieval Times over Six Flags this year.
We had sooo much fun! We cheered for "our knight" and boo-ed the rest. The boys were so in to the whole thing, that it made the night just perfect. We ate with our fingers and no one seemed to care that half our food was hanging out of our mouths while we cheered and yelled (their food was hanging just the same as ours!).
The only "downside" according to Greg was this: the knights would throw roses into the audience to young ladies as they saw them. Our knight pointed to Liv and threw her a rose . . . the old lady next to Greg jumped over him to grab the thing . Greg wasn't a bit happy, but I figured the lady probably got more use out of it than Olivia would have. :)
Greg took the boys fishing twice last week. Once at the park and once at "Mr. Dudley's house". Mr. Dudley is a wonderful little old man in a wheel chair who loves our family and we sure love him. He helped Greg fix a Go-Kart for the boys one year, and then asked for it back so he could tinker with it some more. . . he returned it with a new engine and a two-seater deal! It is so much fun. This is why having land (1 1/5 acres) is worth the work. lol.
Anyway, Mr. Dudley has a lake in his yard and also seems to have fish as well. Calvin wouldn't touch his fish, nor would he bait his own hook, but had no problem watching Greg filet the fish later at home. Me? I had to walk out of the room while Greg did his thing. :(
