Emily and Noah are out of school this week for spring break. On Friday afternoon, we packed up the car and headed off for a Spring Break Adventure. The first stop was Aunt Heather and Uncle Stephen’s house. We drove up on Friday evening and met Heather, Stephen, Stella, Grandmother and Granddaddy at Feltner Brothers in Fayetteville for some burgers. We had not seen Stella since New Year’s and she had grown so much!
We were all over-the-moon excited to see her again and get to spend some time with her. This was Noah’s first time visiting their new house and seeing Stella’s room and he was just so excited about everything. He dragged out all of her toys over and over and wanted to show her everything and hold her. He got to help with her bath one night, too.
Emily is very good with Stella and held her quite a bit. At first, I don’t think she could wrap her head around talking to a baby but she soon warmed up and had Stella talking and smiling all weekend.
On Saturday, we picked up Chick-Fil-A for lunch then went to a local park for a picnic. It was a sunny day but it turned out to be so cold under the picnic pavilion. We quickly ate our lunch then went over to the playground for a minute but it was just too cold. Sadly, Stella’s first picnic was kind of a bust and we headed back home for nap and playtime.
Noah was wanting to hide Easter eggs with Stella so he and Emily and Grandmother and Granddaddy went over to Walmart to get some plastic eggs and Easter buckets for hiding the eggs. They ended up coming back with some Easter things for Stella, too. So cute. Stella liked the chicken and would smile at it sometimes.
That night, we went to Mellow Mushroom to have some pizza then the girls went to do some serious shoe shopping. We had a lot of fun spending time together and, of course, shopping.
But that wasn’t the end of our adventure. Keep reading to find out what else we did on our Spring Break Adventure.
Until then, will it be alright if I leave you with one more picture of the sweet baby girl?
Yep, she is definitely going to regret that! Haha!
