Winter Break

I didn't know it was possible to pack so much fun into just a few weeks! The week after Christmas my brothers Brian and Steven were here. We spent the entire week over at my parents house hangin' out, playing games, and eating tons of great food. Brayden and Tawny loved playing with Tyler and Jordan. The best was watching Tyler and Brayden "wrestle". Brayden was making such an effort to play softly and not hurt Tyler. I loved seeing him show so much concern. It made a Mommy proud.

The following week was just me and the kids and we made the best of it. We had picnics in the park, friends over to play, rode bikes all over the neighborhood, watched tons of funny movies, baked treats together, visited daddy at work, went to the Children's Museum in Phoenix, and so much more.

Greg was busy working, but we still wanted to see him so one day we took a picnic out to the farm and ate lunch with him. Afterwards Brayden and Tawny rode with Daddy for a while.

These pictures are all of the Phoenix Science Museum, We went with the Sotos and we all had so much fun, the mommies included. It started out with this HUGE three-story tree house. We spend almost an hour exploring and having fun up there.
This was the racing room. There were realistic toys for them to climb on, as well as 3-4 huge racing tracks for little cars made out of PVC pipes.
The Ball Room. There was a little market where the kids could go shopping for food, then pay for it at the register. Then they could take the food to the adjoining kitchen and "cook" what they had bought. This was one of Tawny's favorite rooms.
The noodle forrest. Hundreds and hundreds of pool noodles suspended from the ceiling. Enough said.
Arts and crafts
