Spring Break In Waco

Do you ever feel like you are missing out if you don’t do SOMETHING for Spring Break? I do. So, Ashley (my sis-in-law) and I decided to pack up our kids and head to Papa and Granna’s for the week! (Granna was on Spring Break too with her school!)


Sav still sporting her steri strips from that mean ole pillar that jumped right out in front of her the other week (heh, heh). I swear I’m going to pad this girl up in bubble wrap.

Why does Ben always look so grown up in pictures? My precious little man.

I’m guessing Ethan chose this vehicle due to the awesome GREEN flames… any bets?

Sweet Sawyer and Granna…don’t worry lil buddy, you’ll be out there playing with your cousins in no time! Little angel.

This was actually a special night, because we randomly ran into my best friend, Adriane (who lives out of town as well), from childhood and all of her family at Kiddieland…the place where Ade and I had plenty of birthday parties. It was just surreal to be there with OUR children this time. SO NEAT.



Baths and time for bed! Yeah right….how long do you think THIS will last? Ben, Carter, Ethan, Andrew

Not long. But hey, at least we gave it a try…after about 30 minutes we gave in the towel and had to split up the rambunctious boys! haha.

And I just LOVE this picture of Sav and Drew…melt my heart.

(Btw~ the pillow is wet from their freshly bathed hair…at first I couldn’t figure it out and I was like, ewwww…drool/sweat! but its not)



I seriously have an obsession with sleeping kid pictures---they look so sweet and innocent…not talking back to Mama or giving her grief. Ahhhhh…..Lovely.  Ben and Ethan.

Back to riding tricycles…man, after visiting my parents house, I desperately want to lay a HUGE slab of concrete in our backyard! We had to practically drag the children in for food and such. it was so great. Drew in blue.

Carter---just so you know, this kid is like a bajillion times more athletic than any of his older cousins. Kid is amazing.

My buddy, Reynolds and I were actually able to meet up with the kids! It has been forever. Ethan, Ben, Reynolds, Drew, Sav

The kids loved Reynolds and all of his magic!

And that was it for our Waco trip! Had a blast!!!

Did you guys do anything fun for Spring Break? Maybe a stay-cation? I think I’m going to be one of those crazy Moms who drags her family out of town on a vacation every year in the spring.



I am.

Sleeping kid pictures are one of my favorites. Sleeping Steece kid pictures - MELT MY HEART. I love seeing my kids snuggle up to each other like that when we go on a trip and they are all sleeping together...sooooooo cute! I love the fun Mama you are and I love how you are a big kid with your kids.

Savi has Joe's picture smile down!!! LOL DYING over (up) here!

Love you Steeces!!

Cute pics as always.

My 4 boys were on a week long time out, so we only left the house once. My triplets didn't care, but the older son was mad as all get out.

The sleeping pics are just precious, Suz! And OMG look how much they're growing. Seriously their little faces say it so big! Miss you!!

Lissa said...

You have some sweethearts there, ma'am =] We did Six Flags and Sea World. The kids loved the hotel but it was too cold to swim in the pool. Thought about you guys passing thru Waco =]

Jodi said...

awe, love your posts - can't even believe how big they are getting. The pic of Sav & Drew is beyond precious!!!

We did the trip to Grammy and GP and meet up JoLee's babies. JoLee had to work. Man watching cousins play together sure brings back a lot of memories. Thanks for sharing your weekend some day we are going to have to reserve an entire hotel so all of our babies can play together.
