Spring Break 2014

Wow! I can't believe Spring Break is already over. We stayed close to home this year and had a pretty quiet break. We had friends over, went to a couple of parks, went to friends' houses, visited the rodeo, went to the library, did a little bit of crafting, played games, read books, and mostly lazed around.

Boogs invited a friend to go with us to Rodeo Austin. The actual rodeo events (barrel racing, bull riding, steer roping, etc) are held in the evening. We went in the morning to visit the fairgrounds, petting pens, pig races, and carnival. We all had a great time.

 The highlight of the pig races was the pooping pig keychains the boys got. Ewwwww!
 Those pigs sure could run fast!
 Boogs was nervous at the top of the slide but all smiles when he finished it.
 Boogs and his friend went through the Monkey Maze at least 6 times.
They had to do the bumper cars a few times, too.
 The Surf Shack Fun House was another big hit. Boogs and his friend went through it at least 10 times.
They also really liked the Tornado ride and rode it over and over again. It was well worth buying the wrist bands instead of paying with tokens for each ride.

After we left the rodeo, we met Boogs' friend's family at the Arboretum for Amy's Ice Cream and some outdoor play in the sunshine.

It has been a good week. With Spring Break over, we will have to begin our countdown to the end of the school year.

  1. That all looks like great fun, love the last photos next to the lake. That slide looks awesome though :) #CountryKids

  2. Such a fun break you all had, the animals at the petting zoo were adorable. It's great that Boogs had a friend along to enjoy all those rides, thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
