"Springs" Break

The kiddos are on Spring Break this week. Spiderman is at a cabin in the mountains with MIL. T-bone is at his dad's house, babysitting his stepsister. The girls stayed with my mom & dad until Tuesday, and now they're home.
Since I just had surgery and had time off work, we couldn't go on a vacation with them this year. Hopefully next year!
But we wanted to do something fun. DH had Wednesday off, so we took the girls to Poe Springs for the day.
The water was COLD, of course. But the girls still had a blast. We grilled hot dogs and played and relaxed. And I called out of work last night!
As soon as we got there, the Princess saw a friend of hers from school, so they played together and had a great time.

DH threw bread into the river, trying to attract ducks or turtles, while I warned him that he was going to attract alligators! They usually stay away from the cold water of the Springs, but let's not tempt fate, ya know?

The girls swam in that freezing water. I mostly stayed on shore!

The fact that you are even in swimsuits and H20 makes me soooo jealous. I just want to be outside, is that so wrong? It looks like you all had a blast!

Mamawise, I have never seen snow in my life. I don't know anything about snow gear.
Please don't hate me. LOL
I promise I'm sending spring vibes to all of my Northern friends!

Blah, Blah, Blah!

You should check the national weather report from now on and make sure that the folks up north don't have a freaking blizzard going on before you put up Florida pictures. Arrrgggghhhh!

As much as I am really mad at you right now (kidding) I will still tell ya hello! And I'm glad that a gator didn't bite you in the butt, Kinda......:-)

Oh, I am so jealous even if the water was cold. My sister and her family headed your way yesterday and I really wanted to stow away.

About my fairy dresses, yes I am going to sell them at Collage If I can get my password to work. Argh!
