Spring Break 2012: Day One

Yesterday was Day One of Spring Break here and it was one of those days... 

No, not one of those "Do you boys listen to me at all?" days
Not one of those "I can't believe I went to college to change poopy diapers all day" days {yeah, sometimes I think that thought in my head... bad mama}

It was one of those amazing days where the kids behaved beautifully, 
the birds were chirping,
the sun was shining,
and all was right in our little corner of the world.

We broke our Spring Break Rule #1 {NO alarm clock} and got up early to go check out the Butterfly Jungle at the Wild Animal Park before the crowds starting pouring in {it's now called the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park, but if you're from San Diego or have lived here for awhile, you'll probably still call it the WAP forever}.

Butterflies landed on all of us...
{no pic of Luke & I because it was too hard to juggle a purse, squirming 17-month old with a butterfly on his head, and my prego belly... I'm sure it was amusing to watch though!}




Luke napped like a champ in his little stroller...

while his big brothers wormed around a little...

Springtime babies were adorable...


But my favorite part was listening to the boys be silly...

Like when Sam pointed out the vending machines and said, "Wow, even cheetahs need Coke!?"
Of course the Mama in me had to remind him that no one actually NEEDS Coke.
"Oh, but I had it once Mom and it was soooo good!"

And when Jake found this tail for himself...

And when we discovered this cute little Wet Zone that we had all to ourselves and I left the boys get "a little bit wet."  See that yellow bucket in the background?  It emptied on Sam's head :)

Ahhh, Spring Break... we've been waiting for you! 

Are you on Spring Break too?  
What are you up to?  
I'd love to hear! :)
