The first few days of vacation were spent up north at the cabin.
We did a lot of walking around in the woods.
We set up cans for target practice.
Todd took turns showing each boy all about gun safety.
Then, with daddy by their side, they each got to take aim on the cans.
Even I got in on the action.
Gracie watched from a safe distance behind a tree.
The next day it was more walking in the woods followed by watching daddy cut down trees for next year's firewood.
The kids had fun climbing and bouncing around on the trees.
Even though we hadn't yet put the pier in the boys were still able to practice their casting while Gracie found sticks around the yard for our fire pit.
It was a really nice time up north. It was supposed to be rainy all week, but the weather really cooperated and we had a great time.
Our next adventure took us to Manitowoc to the Maritime Museum. The kids loved seeing all the cool ships and learning what an important role Wisconsin played in making ships for WWII.
We even got to go on and tour an actual submarine. It was SO AWESOME. Here we are sitting in the sub's galley.
After the museum we went to our favorite little free zoo.
It was a busy day so the next day we stayed home and relaxed and played outside.
Friday we went to Oshkosh to the EAA to see and all the cool planes. Not only was it educational, it was super fun too.
Overall, it was a great spring break. The kids felt that they got to go on a bunch of really cool trips, and Todd and I even managed to have a date night and see The Hunger Games (woot woot!) and then go to dinner. Win!
Now today it is back to our regularly scheduled program. School, work, choir rehearsals, meetings, blah, blah, blah. At least we have some good memories to get us through to summer.
