Spring Break

Our spring break didn't go quite as planned.  Friday, after school Brooks complained of a belly ache.  I hoped and prayed it was from the candy consumed at his class Easter party.  But, my mommy gut was telling me something was up.  Just as Kyrie and I cut the cauliflower to make our cauliflower crust pizza, Brooks puked.  And it happened over and over again for the next twelve hours.  Meanwhile, Kyrie also got sick within a couple of hours of Brooks falling ill.  At that point I told Brad to cancel our hotel.  We were supposed to spend the weekend in Hilton Head meeting our friends.  This would have a been an extra special meeting as their daughter Kate and Olivia have a connected past as they lived together in China.  

Come Sunday, I decided I would be brave and make the 10-12 hr trek to Nana and Poppie's solo.  I was pulling out of the garage when I noticed Kyrie looking rather green.  I asked if she was going to be sick.  Her "I don't know" response was enough for me to call off the trip.

Don't worry though!  In true Nana fashion everything worked out.  By 7:00 pm that night Nana's flight landed and she was ready to surprise the kids when they woke up the next morning.

Our Hilton Head and Florida Spring break turned staycation ended up turning out to be a fantastic alternative.  We enjoyed going to the movies, crafting, doing science experiments, visiting Carowinds, parks and just spending time together.  Brad and I benefited from many date nights thanks to Nana.

I may have won super mom honors when I let them paint faces for no reason.  I'm pretty sure the neighbors weren't too thrilled when Kyrie painted all of their childrens' faces as well.  Sorry guys.

When it was time for Nana to leave all three kids sobbed the whole way home from the airport.  Mommy may have shed a tear or two too.  We hate having all of our family so far away. 

Don't fear. Nana left a little spending money to brighten everyone's day. Olivia sure likes what she picked out.  Miss sassy!
