Spring Break 2016

For spring break this  year we didn't have a family trip planned since it felt like we just had our big winter break ski trip.  Plus, Robby and I had plans to go to the Masters for a few days so Gigi and Papa agreed to have the kids down with them in Florida for the week. I drove them down on Monday and it was a smooth and easy drive.  They were SO good in the car and couldn't wait to get to Florida.

I stayed one night and then came back home.  Hudson wanted me to leave right away though and couldn't wait for his fun to start after I was gone!

They had such a big time!  Gigi and Papa kept them VERY busy with all sorts of fun outings and activities.  They got to swim everyday, which is their absolute favorite thing to do.  They also went to Weeki Wachee Springs, a natural springs that has a real mermaid show.  While they were there they saw all sorts of animals and also got to swim in the springs!

They also went to the movies, played bocce ball, rode the golf cart around, saw lots of wildlife and really lived it up.

Hudson had been begging to play "real golf" for quite some time and he got lots of golfing time in with Papa.  He came home talking all about it and said he even wants to have a golf birthday party now. I have got to get that boy playing some more golf here because he was SO excited about it.

Several evenings after dinner they went to the town square where they live for the nightly entertainment.  A DJ and dancing is always fun and the kids were having a blast breaking it down.  The videos I got of some of their moves were cracking us up and I was so happy they were having such a fun time.

While they were off having all sorts of adventures, Robby and I really enjoyed our time together at The Masters.  Not only did we attend the golf tournament, but I got to try putting a little, we ate delicious meals and laughed with friends.

The Masters is such a wonderful experiences and we feel so lucky to get to attend.  The weather was a little chilly, but still gorgeous and the grounds are so beautiful. I love just walking around and taking it all in.

We had to laugh because there were more than a few times that someone asked Robby if he was Bubba Watson so he was a good sport and we did a side-by-side comparison.

Papa and Gigi brought the kids home today and we were all so excited to be reunited.  Now everyone is ready for a full week of school and sports. I'm sad for our break to be over, but now the official countdown to summer is on!
