Spring Break 2015

We were lucky enough to have Jefferson home all week for Spring Break so we had our list of things that we were going to see and do, along with our days to hang out around the house and relax while enjoying modern day things such as Netflix.

The first thing on our list was building a garden. We have been talking about doing one since the fall but didn't get on it fast enough to plant for fall so spring planting, here we come! Jefferson had been bringing old pallets home from work and then ripped out some of the boards, put them together, lined them, and voila! garden boxes. They turned out great!! We decided to plant tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, cucumbers, carrots, and broccoli. After a fun trip to the store, it was time to start planting and Emery loved helping! She also thought that Dad was making her a Trolley like Daniel Tiger so she was a little sad when we kicked her out to pour in the soil. Maybe another pallet project is in order.

Emery really loved her frog that she picked out to help hold up the tomato plant. She would run up to him and say "thank you for taking care of our garden!"

Next up was the Zoo. Emery loves it and we enjoyed seeing it together. It was a surprisingly nice day for March and we had a great time going, doing, and seeing whatever Emery wanted. She made sure to wear her giraffe pants.

I found her sleeping like this at nap time. Spring Break must be wearing her out.

Emery loves to paint so I found one of these wooden planes with wheels for $1 at Walmart and Emery had a great time painting it and playing with it afterwards. It's the little things in life.

It was a great week with the perfect mix of fun and relaxation. Emery was definitely not ready for Jefferson to go back to work on Monday and we were counting down to his next break.


  1. your hair is getting so long! And Emery is getting so grown up! I can't believe our little 2 year olds haven't met each other yet!

  2. I'm so jealous of your garden! And that you have access to many Pinterest crafts use them haha!
