After being landlocked and covered in snow since January, we decided to take our spring break in sunny Orlando, Florida. Apparently this has been an atypical, long winter for Minnesota. We had snow fall even up to a week and a half ago.
We had a wonderful time together. Even though our days were long with lots of walking in the heat and humidity (to which we were NOT acclimated), the kids did great. They were real troopers and such a joy! One of the highlights of our trip was staying with Phil's cousin and family for a few days.
So here's a run-down of our lives these past two months...
|Fun at Epcot!|
|Kilimanjaro Safari in Disney's Animal Kingdom|
Disney's Hollywood Studios
|Kennedy Space Center|
|We went on a few field trips with the homeschool group from our church and visited an old village where the kids attended 2 hours of school in an old schoolhouse.|
|Another field trip included digging for fossils near the banks of the Mississippi River. We found lots of coral, seashells and trilobites. Imagine--right here in the Midwest. Evidence of a world-wide flood!|
|Our first Minnesota Twins game and the kids' first baseball game. We had such a great time! The boys probably enjoyed it a bit more. The game was super long and the girls kept getting distracted by all of the vendors about half-way through.|
