keepin' spring break interesting

Well, it's hot down here, so I finally did it--I turned on the A/C. It seems a bit early this year, but man, the house got up to 79 three days in a row, I just had to do it. Ahh, A/C. Gotta love it. Gotta hate the electricity bill each summer!


This is a picture of my updated scrap space. My dear friend Stephanie Godeck took my desk and stripped the old paint off, sanded it, worked her magic, and painted it. I LOVE it! It totally doesn't match anything in my house, but I LOVE it!! Gotta be a girl sometimes! I still need to get the acrylic knobs (white) to go with it, but for right now, it's perfect!

Tonight we're going camping just for a quick one nighter. It's Spring Break for the boys and I feel bad that we're not going anywhere exciting, but this will have to do. I took a day off daycare so I can do it. We're not going far--just Estrella Mountain Park--but it'll still be fun.

Tomorrow when we get back and cleaned up, we're considering going to the Phoenix Zoo. Now, I am not a zoo fan. It's usually too hot in Phoenix to enjoy it in my opinion, especially with kids. Because of the heat, most of the animals you'd want to see are hiding. And there's a lot of walking...the zoo is like 2.5 square miles or something like that. So again, it's not the greatest for little kids. However, I feel guilty that I've never taken them! I'm probably totally exaggerating how horrible it will be, but I guess they deserve one try and then we'll know if the zoo is ever a consideration in March again. We'll let you know how it goes.

Love your new scrap space. Very inspiring. how fun. Stephanie did a great job. Did you know that you can take bikes and rollerblades to the zoo? They have a fun shady playground for the kids too. You will love it. Go early because it will be hot.

Enjoy that you have a zoo with animals in it. The closest zoo to us has like 3 animals on a little dirt path. It's very disappointing. I always loved the zoo there. We went while we were down there, the kids really enjoyed it.
