Spring Break Begins...

It seems that as soon as Christmas vacation is over, my children start the countdown for Spring Break. We normally don't go anywhere, so our time is spent doing things close to home. Spring Break also means staying up late, watching movies, sleeping in, and playing outside. Hopefully, we will have some nice days this next week so we can do some hiking at a state park nearby.

While we are anxiously watching the forecast for the upcoming week and really hoping for some warmer temperatures, our daughter, Jessica is enjoying the warm and sunny weather of Miami, Florida. So, while she is away, Steve and I decided to have a little fun with the boys.

Yesterday, we went to COSI (Center of Science & Technology) in Columbus, Ohio. We spent the next couple of hours going through the museum learning about space, the ocean, and doing lots of hands-on activities.

When I saw these water guns, I knew that their dry clothes weren't going to last long...

COSI even has an exhibit called "Progress" where you can travel back through time...

One of the highlights of the day was riding this unicycle...

Even Steve showed us that indeed, he is a man of many talents...

If only I had been wearing closed toe shoes, I would have been able to ride too. Honestly, I wasn't too disappointed.

What better way to spend the day than with guys like this...


  1. Hi there!

    Looks like everyone had a great time. I don't think anyone would have been able to get me up on that unicycle but way to go to your family!!

    I pray for a wonderful spring break for your family. Our Teen daughter is on spring break too and we just did a trip to the book store. She loves to read. We are hopeful for non raining weather so we can do the park a few days next week and maybe lunch outdoors.

    Thanks for sharing your family time with us. Bless you.

  2. OMGosh!! What a wonderful day it looks like you had with your guys!! Was that unicycle as far up in the air as it looks in the pictures?!?!? If so, there would been NO way I could of gotten on it.

    But then again the rest of my family are daredevils, so I am sure I would of been the only one left out.

    Hugs!! Carrie♥

  3. So fun, my friend! And yes, I anxiously scrolled down to see YOU on that bike. :)Next time.

  4. That looks like so much fun. I wish I lived in a place where we had neat things to do like that. Our little town has absolutely nothing. Nothing....


  5. What a great place to visit! Looks like y'all had a great time. My best to your family for a fun spring break. Enjoy!!

  6. looks like you all had such a great time! What a good-looking bunch of guys! Mine are all grown up and living their lives away...I so cherish the times we have together.

    BY THE WAY...I started reading "If I Gained the World". ohman, it is soooo good and it seems as if I was meant to be reading it at this moment in my walk with God. Thank you so much for having it in your pile of books.

  7. What a great memory made! We're ending our two week spring break of staying up late and sleeping in and enjoying each other in a relaxing way. It's been great - and I pray that your break is just as refreshing. :-)

  8. PS: I love your new profile picture - and the new widget below each of your posts... so much that I got one for my blog. ;-0

  10. Looks like lots of fun!Glad you were able to spend time with the boys and no i would not have gotten on that unicycle either but did look fun.My gang would have loved it.
    We had our spring break 2 weeks ago and really just stayed home. It was relaxing.

  11. I love COSI. The one in Toledo closed last year. Stupid taxes. (I'm only a little bitter.) It was a sad day. I'm so glad you guys had fun with the boys!

  12. Wow that looks like a FUN time!
    So glad you got to kick back and enjoy the boys!
    Happy week ahead wishes to you and your fam~ Les

    Thanks for stopping by and saying hello to Kayce at Pastorette's Progress. She is so excited to join the blog world but feels like she is talking to nobody. She is a wonderful lady and I had already told her so much about you, she was thrilled to see that you do EXIST..HA HA!

    Enjoy your time with those fellows!!


  14. I love COSI. I live in Grove City (Columbus Suburb) and I make it a point to visit at least once a year! It is so much fun and learning!
