Our kids have been on break all week, actually since last Thursday. The highlights were going to the Mall of America, Maple Grove Maze, Big Thrill Factory and this weekend we are off to the Water Park of America. Even though it was still chilly the kids were dying to ride their new bikes -Jerad got them all new bikes this spring-so we went up to the park and let them ride around. It gave me hope that spring may actually be coming. Can’t wait for it to warm up so the kids can play outside.
I remember this from last year, the first time Cassie and Callie got on the swings after a long winter, they laughed hysterically, like they were at an amusement park. Sure enough that was the case yesterday as well. They giggled, they belly laughed, they begged to be pushed higher. It was so refreshing! How many times do we try to fun, fun, fun our kids when it is sometimes the basic things that create the most joy. It put a smile on my face.
