Spring Break?

I'm not sure how much of a "break" it was as I was trying to cram in as much entertainment and chores as I possibly could but at least it was a break from school.

We did purchase a family pass to the zoo and made our first trip of the year to see the animals. Here are just a few photos. Unfortunately, the camera battery ran out of power so there are only a couple photos.







We also spent all day Saturday, along with my sis, bro-in-law, and nephew, moving my mom to her new place. She is leaving behind a one bedroom apartment but from the looks of all the stuff she had, you wouldn't have guessed it. We really were amazed that we managed to get everything done in one day.

Aunt Terri was kind enough to watch both kids so we could do the move - thank you! I had actually never been away from T Rex Princess for that long before but she did fine. T Rex had a blast - he was SO exhausted from all the fun. Actually we all were. Interestingly, it was hard work but it was a break from potty breaks, diapers, time-outs, and toddler-speak, so it actually was a fun time for me. I did miss the kids but I think a break now and again is good, don't you think?


There were actually two full trailers, two full pick-ups, and two full small SUVs. T Rex Dad is an excellent loader as he has moved many times in his life. I think it was his strategic loading that made it possible to make the trip once.

Here are some photos of us moving...





There is more on what the kids have been up to posted on their blogs. T Rex did some Easter preparations and T Rex Princess did some normal baby things. Stay tuned as she is already starting her "potty" training. More later in the week on that as well as photos of her latest cloth diapers.

Now, back to school...

Moving is a lot of work but sounds like you guys did a good job pulling it off in one trip. I read a book before Thomas was born about EC'ing your baby. (Potty training a baby) It isn't as much about them telling you they have to go but you taking them. I tried a little at first but going back to work made it nearly impossible. As for current potty training, right now we are in a state of refusal. We were doing so well and one day we said no and just fights me every step of the way now. Not sure why but we are struggling right now.

Thanks for the planting idea. It is a good one!

I'm looking forward to taking Deaglan to the zoo in the coming summer when I think he will appreciate it more than he did last summer. Glad to hear that princess was okay without you for a bit. Hope you are well. Going over to check out your kids' blogs:)

Love the lion (?) shot! And I'm sure they'll be tons more photos if you have a pass. That's great!

And your mom is lucky to have so much help and expertise! Not much of a break for you though.
