Spring Break 2020

Spring break 2020 was quite different than we originally planned. We had plans to go to Florida and hang out with Grandma and Grandpa Stubler, but COVID-19 put the brakes on that idea. Instead, we hung out at home and tried to make the best of this crazy lockdown. We joined in all the great neighborhood activities, like putting stuffed animals in the window and drawing positive phrases on the driveway so kids could get out of their houses for scavenger hunts. It definitely helped get Carter and Emery interested in going around to see what all the houses had. Since we didn’t have much else to do, we spent some time prepping for Easter. The kids got all of Easter baskets out and hid them around the house. Hopefully, the Easter Bunny can find them all when he comes in a couple of weeks.

I have been keeping busy with a few house projects. I finished putting up wainscoting and painted all the walls in the office, and put a fresh coat of paint on the ceiling in the dining room. At this rate, the whole house is going to get repainted by the time the lockdown ends.


Spring Break 2017

No beaches, no flying, no packing… just a good ol stay-cation.

Carter was busy, he hung out with his good buddy Charlotte for couple days. They went to the Children’s Museum and Naperville Yard. He also spent a couple of days at The Goddard School and went on field trips, including to Philips Park Zoo.

Friday, both Julie and I, took a vacation day to hang out with the kids. We all got to meet the Easter Bunny because he showed up a week early at our local neighborhood toy store. Then we went out for pizza and saw the new movie, Boss Baby. We all agreed, with love, that Emery is the “Boss Baby” in our family.

Emery’s friend at school got her ears pierced during the week so this prompted Emery to want her ears pierced right away! Saturday we took her to get them done.She has some super sparkly ears now. Then we rushed to the Metra, took it down a few stops to Downer’s Grove to have lunch and play at a park. This was Emery’s first official train ride!
