Spring Break Recap

Spring break is officially over! The kids are at their first day back to school in over two weeks, hubby left early to get back to work, and there is finally a calm in the house this morning. We had the busiest and most amazing two weeks, hence my blogging absence. I have had entire spring breaks where most of the days were spent in our pajamas, but not this one. I posted a list of hopeful to-do's before the break started and I'm happy to say that I can cross off a nice chunk of the list. Here's the original list. I crossed off all we did:
  • Hang out in pj's all day
  • Padre Game
  • Ice Skating
  • Rock Climbing
  • Bowling
  • Batting Cages
  • Space Museum at Balboa Park
  • Movie
  • Craft Day-I have been saving all my magazines so we can make collages.
  • Spring Clean-full post on that later in the week.
  • Sea World?? Poor Chloe has never been, will this be her chance?
  • Host out of town guests? It's still being discussed...
  • Read!
  • Study and do homework-That's for me!
  • Work Out-also me...
  • Bake
  • Go to the park
  • Hang out with friends
  • Take the kids to Vegas? Also still being discussed, but hopefully!
We crashed hubby's business trip to Vegas....so awesome! The kids hadn't been in a couple years. We stayed at the Red Rock Resort. I highly recommend it if you are going with kids. It's about 15-20 minutes off the strip. It's new and clean, it has a bowling alley, movie theatre, arcade, and babysitting. We took advantage of all it's features including it's fantastic pool. Nash got his highest bowling score ever of 118. He was thrilled. We still made it over to the strip to take the kids to see Cirque du Soleil's Mystere. We wanted to take them to see Beatles Love, but they were on vacation. Chloe really loved the show. I was happy to see it for a second time, but I think I still like O better.

After we got back from Vegas, we had to get ready for our out of town guests. They stayed for four days. We did end up doing Sea World with them, and although it was a bit crowded we got fun passes so I can take the kids back later.

After they left we headed up to Los Angeles to surprise the kids by taking them to a taping of AMERICAN IDOL for the performance show! You can imagine their surprise and excitement! An associate of hubby's was nice enough to give us his tickets, and his seats were AWESOME! We were 3 rows behind the judges. Steven Tyler waved at Chloe and she even got to go on stage (right next to the judges) to get a free Scotty shirt! She wore it for the next 3 days!
It sure was a fun break, but I'm ready to get back to business!

Sounds wonderful! Good for you. That Vegas trip sounds amazing. Are you going to share any pics? And so cool that you got to go to a taping of American Idol. My kids would be stoked.
