Spring Break Fun

Bob was able to take spring break off from work and we had some wonderful family time together. We generally are always so busy with practices, school, church, etc... that family time is a rare commodity. Here are some of the fun things we got to do:

Here is the gang at a Topeka Roadrunners game. Preston and Ella did not find it terribly fun toward the end, but the older boys really liked it.

One day we ate lunch downtown and then decided to support some local businesses. First stop - Hazel Hill Chocolate Factory. All I have to say is, "Yummy!"

I love that the kids are still so easy to please that they were thrilled with dipped pretzels!

Here we are leaving Hazel Hill. Maddox thought the walk back to the van was going to drain him!

We also stopped into Marian Lane candles. I found a new favorite! They even have sets that will work in my Scentsy!

Then we headed to the zoo. It was a beautiful day!

Checking out the giraffes.

At the bear exhibit. I think the kids enjoy the things to climb on more than they do seeing the animals sometimes!

Preston relaxing a little!

It's a good thing this bear isn't real. Can't imagine he'd care for his ears being pulled!

More climbing!

And more climbing!

My little pigtailed cutie!
One last climbing picture!

We have been to a few different Disney on Ice shows. So when we heard that Disney on Ice: Toy Story 3 was in Kansas City, it was a no brainer. These are wonderful shows and worth every penny. Here is Caden and Brennen before the show started.

Still waiting for the start of the show.

These are not the best pictures, but they're what we've got. Here are a couple snapshots of the show.

During intermission Caden wanted a picture with the KC skyline behind him. Never did happen. This is as good as it got!

My favorite characters from Toy Story are Ken and Barbie so I was really excited to see their segment of the show!

That is a glimpse at our spring break. Not a trip to Disneyworld, but some wonderful family time nonetheless!
