Spring Break 2012

Last week was spring break for us.   We didn't go any where, but we had lots of fun.   Here's a quick recap of a few of our days in (mostly) pictures.


Tuesday Nugget and I ran errands.  I had a dentist appointment and my dentist suggested the last time I was in that I bring Nugget with so he can start to get used to the surroundings.  The dentist also said it would be good for Nugget to see me get my teeth cleaned.  I thought it was a brilliant idea.
Nugget loved riding in the big chair!  His favorite thing was the suction tube, though.  He was too funny, every time I used the suction he would come over and want to suction his mouth.  Beth, our hygentist, said that is was great he liked that.  She said most kids are afraid of the suction tube.

After the dentist Nugget had an appointment to get his haircut.  I wish this was an easy feat.  Haircuts for Nugget consist of lots of tears, climbing out of chairs, and physical exhaustion for all involved.  I have never seen any one hate to get his haircut as much as Nugget.  I hate that I have to do it to him, but in the end he always looks so cute.

I had the carpets cleaned on Wednesday morning so Nugget and I had to get out of the house for most of the day.  We went to the mall to play and see the Easter bunny.  I didn't think Nugget would get any where near the bunny, but he did!

That evening the carpets were still too wet to walk on much less play on so I tried to set up a play area in our kitchen.  No Go.  Nugget does not care for change, and he was not happy about not being able to get into the playroom.  We finally packed up and went out to the farm for a few hours in the evening.  Whew!  One little boy sure does have a mind of his own.


Since Nugget's birthday is coming up I really wanted to get his picture taken.   We had plans to do that on Thursday.  He was such a good boy, and took so many great pictures ~ that made it difficult to just pick a few.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

After pictures we walked around the mall a bit.  There is a new train ride at the mall.  Nugget was beyond excited.  He couldn't wait to ride the train.

Nugget was so excited,
I couldn't get him to sit still long enough to take a picture.

Holding his ticket for the conductor!  :o)
I hadn't planned on going to the playland, but the train took us right by so of course we had to go back.  Actually I'm glad we did.  Even though it was really crowded, Nugget had a blast.

By Friday both Nugget and I were tired.  We slept late.  Met Papa for breakfast and just sort of 'hung-out' for the day.  It was a good day to regroup.

Our friends called and invited us to an Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning.  At first Nugget was a little skiddish, but once he got the swing of things he had a blast!!

Saturday evening we colored eggs.

Nugget also helped me frost the lamb cake.  Well. I frosted while he was the official taste-tester. 

After a bath we had to get the basket ready for the Easter Bunny!

I love, Love, LOVE that Nugget is starting to 'get' all of the fun activities and traditions with the holidays.
Next post will have Easter Sunday.  This post is already WAY too long!

  1. So many sweet pics of your adorable Nugget! Oh man is he cute and that boy knows how to have a good time! Playing, climbing, egg hunting, icing tasting, egg colouring and a train ride too? We want to enjoy spring break at your place next year! :o)

    Too bad it's already back to school time. How many sleeps until Summer break?
