Bobby and Gracie were on Spring Break last week and for once I actually remembered to request some days off from work so we could hang out.
Unfortunately the weather was pretty crummy but we were able to sneak in a quick trip to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
I was pretty surprised that both of the kids were game for going.
We haven’t been there since they were teeny tiny.
I was expecting some resistance, especially from the teenager, but he was all for it so I made sure to make it happen even it meant having to battle a few rain drops.
We had fun.
Two of the days were spent cleaning out their toy room which housed toys from the past several years and they needed to find a new home.
The kids weren’t as happy about that adventure but we were able to revisit some good memories from when they were toddlers AND we cleared out a lot of toys, almost all of them……except the special ones.
The other days were spent as me being a Taxi driver and chauffeuring them around town so they could hang with their friends, get eye glasses fixed, make a special trip to get some awesome chip dip across town and basically be at their beck and call.
I had one day to myself where both the kids were out and instead of taking a nap I gave Sherman and Leroy a much needed bath.
Now it’s time to go back to work and I’m exhausted and need a break from my break.
Why does it always go that way?
