Confessions of a deadbeat blogger

I can't believe it's been almost a week since my last post.  I must confess I've been taking a bit of a break this week to hang with my peeps!  Even Pre-K gets a break at Spring, & we've had a busy week running from one activity to the next.
We checked out the newly renovated Fort Worth Children's Museum.

Me & 20,000 other people had a great day,
learning & exploring the new exhibits.

After a long cold winter it was nice to get outside,

get those bike tires pumped up,

& take our 'babies' to the park.
And then.....

Mother Nature played a dirty trick on us!!  It's crazy to think that on Friday we were enjoying 70+ degrees & Saturday it snowed!?!  What's up with that?

Oh well, that wasn't going to put a damper on our festivities.  Yes, Owen is wearing Lily's boots.  In our house you just grab what you can!

From skateboards to snowballs, we had an awesome Spring break.  So now you know why I haven't been around much this week, but I'm pooped!  I need these kids to get back to school so I can get some rest. 

Tomorrow I'll draw the winner for my give-away, if you haven't entered it's not too late!

You're so right, Lisa! 70º and then SNOW...Serious dirty trick!

Linda said...

Oh, Lisa- your three little sweeties are the best reason I can think of to not post! Enjoy them!!

Ticking and Toile said...

Hi Lisa,
Sounds like a great spring break! That is a serious rotten trick from mother nature! We got a similar surprise....well not really a surprise in Washington...60 - 70 degree days then RAIN RAIN RAIN today...:{ The good news is my boxwoods will stay nice & wet until I can plant them! :}


Your kiddos are adorable!! :o)

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Yep, welcome to Texas!

And good for you, sometimes being a "deadbeat blogger" just means that you're giving priority to those things which are REALLY important in life!

Welcome back!

Lisa, dear,
I can see you had a wonderfull week, with your 3 sweeties, they looks realy sweet all, and are the best excuse to not posting.
Lisa I have put a photo on my blog today, with the sea blatter,for you to see ,-it is not the same you shoved, but maybe you can use it???

Enjoy your kids, dear.
Hugs Dorthe

Diane said...

Lisa, you must take all the time that you can while they are young because before you know it they
will be grown! They are precious.
Now, back to work! We want to see and hear more.

T said...

I'm glad you enjoyed your kiddos, snow or no snow! You live in Fort Worth? My brother in law lives in Flower Mound. Are you close to there?

Lori said...

how fun!!! you have your spring break early there where you kiddies have eight more days of school before theirs starts...well, of course your spring comes earlier too...that must be why...your kiddos are adorable Lisa!!!

Peridots Garden Blog said...

Your kiddos are so gorgeous!

I just love Spring Break! We also enjoyed having Miss M to ourselves and a few activities!

So funny, "serious dirty trick" is the perfect description of our weather this week!

Ooops gotta run and start getting ready for tomorrow long til SUMMER?


Claudia said...

Your children are adorable! Glad you've all been having fun - I bet even the snow couldn't keep you down!


sissie said...

Hi Lisa,
I'm glad you enjoyed your time with your children, but the little guys can really wear you out!
I'm sure you do need some rest.

They are so adorable and precious.


Diva Kreszl said...

spending time with your children should always take priority, enjoy it they grow up so fast. we'll be here waiting for you when you have time to post!

Beth Leintz said...

Geez Lisa, taking care of your kids is kind of a lame excuse for not blogging.

But it was fun to see a picture of all of them together- what cutie pies.

I haven't gone back far enough in your blog archives (I think you called it your goob phase)- to see your kids all together.

Same thing happened here with the weather- I had the air conditioning on in the car on Friday, 5" of snow on Sat.

Lisa, everybody gets a break once in a while. Your comments are always so sweet and priceless to me. I hope to meet you someday and give you a big hug.

Love ya,

Hey sweets!!!! I'm so sorry I missed your call!! Even though I've been sick as a dog I've kept the road HOT!!! But finally tonight I'm beginning to feel like myself again. Your "Peeps" are PRECIOUS!! Look at how grown up they look!!! I've done the museum thing here in Atlanta and it was a "hands-on" place. But all the crazy daycare folks were there as well and let's just say we didn't get much "hands-on" experience!!! I heard that you guys got snow, how weird is that??? I'm sure it will be gone in a flash and will be 70 again by next week, right? BTW, I'm getting a blog makeover by our sweet Karen!!! I love yours and didn't even realize that she did it!!!! Have a great week and please try to call again, I'm an awful "caller", hugs and love, Dawn

Pat @ My Tattered Elegance said...

I'm glad the snow is gone! I'm ready for spring to stay here and winter to leave until after the fall. But here in Texas you never know. Love the pics of the peeps! Glad all of you had fun last week, now we can have some Tuesday. I'm looking forward to it.
Hugs, Pat

June said...

Lisa there are cute kids out there and then there are REALLY cute kids out there! These are some seriously cute kids!!! I'm so glad you took a break for these smiles. There is nothing more important than this! I know after a Spring or Christmas break, I always did the happy dance, once the kids got back on the bus that first Monday morning after. (I can't believe I just said that in my 'out loud voice')
Enjoy your week.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Hi Lisa, I'm sure you had fun with your kids even though it had been a bit exhausting! I can't believe you had snow again. The weather had been just crazy lately but hopefully the sun will prevail soon again.
Hava a wonderful week!

vicki said...

Love the pictues - adorable children! Sweet, sweet little posting. Thanks for sharing--


T's Daily Treasures said...

The weather is so crazy when Texas and Louisiana are getting snow and Michigan is not. Glad to hear you've been enjoying your time, sun or snow! Best wishes, Tammy

Something Special said...

Some adorable kids there. The museum looks like so much fun for kids. I would agree with Anne's comment about priorities. Take Care.

Lou said...

Oh Lisa,
You have such cuties... and I am surprised you ever have time to blog! lol! Too funny re the boots.... WOW! you think it is warm and you all still have jumpers on! And that snow is just soooo beautiful... but that may be because we never get it here...:) But sometimes I would gladly swap the heat... yeah I guess life is always greener on the other side... but I never tire of looking at gorgeous pics of the snow.. it is so magical somehow....
Glad you and the peeps have had such a lovely week together!
Lou xx

A Cottage Muse said...

Adorable little ones! Enjoy today!

luverlie said...

Hope the snow is gone for good. Not to be a downer, I can remember, years ago, when it snowed on Easter Sunday......and I remember February's were like June. I'm in SW IN, so both are odd circumstances.
Glad the kiddo's had fun outside.


You know I'm crazy about these photos! Such sweet peeps. If Spring break was crazy, what is Summer going to be like? Action and! ~ Angela

Happy Monday,

red.neck chic said...

Well... you know the saying... if you don't like the weather in Texas - wait a few minutes! LOL It's crazy, right? I had to drive to Poetry to experience the snow - but it was worth it!

Sounds to me you had a wonderful/fun-filled week with your GORGEOUSLY cute peeps!!!

Debra@Common Ground said...

That looks like the kind of Spring Breaks we used to have...close to home, but so much fun! Love the "taking the babies" to the park"! They are just darling!


We all need a break now and then. How nice you got to spend your time with the wee ones.
