 It's Gratituesday again.   Woke up to a cold rainy day today.  #2 wanted to bake cinnamon rolls and make hot chocolate.  Since it is fall break this sounded like a fine idea to me.  So today I am thankful for these moments with my children.  Time spent baking in the kitchen with my kids and drinking hot chocolate while taking in a movie.  I'm so blessed!

Fall Break

It's fall break for the kids, not for me.  For me I think it translates to add more work to my schedule!  
Today we went to Mastodon State Park.  Had a great tour guide named Mike.  #1 was really into everything and the others drifted in and out.  We were the only ones in our group and it added a special touch to the day(although when the little ones were done with everything I was wishing we could get lost in the crowd! A certain child of my who shall remain nameless *cough #4 cough* started rolling on the ramp inside and opening the back door to the building, fun times I keep telling myself...)  It is a small museum but when you have a guide they add so much interesting additional information!  Had nice little hike in the park after the inside stuff to allow some boys(and girl) to get some energy out.

Plan to share more of our adventures(or misadventures) as they unfold this week.
