We were anticipating having Kate and Jack with us for a couple of days during Spring Break, but surprise, surprise! The kids' grandmother Oma fell and broke her hip last Friday, which changed everybody's plans for Spring Break. Sara needed to stay with and care for her so the boys came up to spend Spring Break with us and Uncle Jason and Aunt Amy. We took turns splitting the kids up for the overnight stays and each day we did something fun. No need to explain it all - it's just been a great week. (A good week with the kids, a sad week for our little Trudy, which I will tell about in a different post.)
Play, play, play!

Cloudy skies and cool weather didn't dampen
our spirits. The indoor swimming was a big hit!

When our plans get adjusted, we just go with the flow and enjoy the ride. So Grandpa and Nonnie have been just about everywhere this week and today we returned the boys to their Mom. We hit major traffic jams in 6 different cities! Whew! What a crazy, fun week. Wish I could remember more of the details. It went by in a flash. Well, some days seemed to flash by more quickly than others. Suffice it to say we are pooped.
My hat is off to the Super Moms Sara and Amy! Sara for taking care of her Mom and Amy for facilitating the activities this week and holding rein over the wild ponies.
