Spring Pictures!

I love seeing the Spring pictures of Ben and Conner. You can see how much they have grown and (usually) how little they care about having their picture taken at school! Ben insists that the people told him not to smile...  No matter what, these two handsome guys brought home some cute pictures to look at, even if I didn't buy any!

Another Spring Break request from the boys was that we go bowling! It is always a good time to watch these two bowl!

Trolls and Cockroaches!

We started our morning at the local theater that was showing the movie Trolls! The boys enjoyed their snacks and the movie! We went out for lunch and then we had the cockroach races to attend! The boys were very excited about this. They each got to pick out some fake bugs to keep and they got to make a craft. Then it was time to pick a cockroach and race it!

 Conner won the cockroach races!!! He won every heat he was in and the final race! He was a very happy boy!!!

 We decided to stop for some hot fudge sundaes, another Spring Break request from our boys!

Games and More...

Our boys love the arcade just as much as they love all the swimming! They could not wait to start playing games, especially when they saw some new ones!

This fishing game remains their favorite...

Nick won his annual 1000 tickets at spinning the pirate wheel! Amazing!

The favorite prizes were definitely the swords and masks!

After a funfilled day yesterday, we were ready to have a little breakfast this morning and make the trip back home! Another great trip to the Dells!

Spring Break!

We are ready to go to Wisconsin Dells and get out of town for a couple of days!!! This will be a great start to our Spring Break! When we finally made it there and the boys had their wolf ears, we quickly made our way down to the water parks. After a few hours, the boys were ready for bed!

New Glasses!

Ben and Conner have been waiting for their new glasses and we got the call today! They are very excited! It's hard to tell in the picture, but Ben's have some blue on them and Conner's glasses have some green on them!

Conner and Ben got home from school and got started on their homework all by themselves! It was awesome!
