Spring Break Vacation in Pictures

I’m from the South. I’m used to a warm, sunny Spring Break. This one was the exact opposite! It was cold and snowy!
We originally thought we would spend Spring Break at the beach. Our middle child woke up sick Saturday morning, so we didn’t go. By late afternoon, she was feeling better. My hubby decided at 4:30 that he wanted to go to the mountains. So…..we dressed, packed, and left by 5:30 without reservations. I think that was record packing time for us.
We packed so much into our three days there. Here are some pictures.
Ripley’s Aquarium.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not (Yes, my husband is 6’5” and my 13 year old son is taller than me!)

Nascar Speedpark—It was snowing, so we didn’t get to ride the go karts. We only played in the arcade.

Since a little bit of snow actually stuck on Tuesday morning, we had a snowball fight. This is my husband’s truck before the snowball fight and after the snowball fight. Cold but fun! We need to work on his parking skills.

My husband was determined we weren’t leaving the mountains until we rode go karts. That was the whole purpose of the visit to Nascar Speedpark. It was an absolute must since my son races go karts in real life. Can you believe he won on the track? I say it’s only because there was less weight on his kart. haha By the time this ride was over, I thought my hands would never move again. I was f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g!!!

Now, I need to get back to my mountains of laundry since none of it got washed on vacation. I’m a wash-laundry-every-day kind of gal because I don’t like it to pile up. It piles up quickly with five people.

While I was away, a great giveaway started. Kimberly Ann from Live, Laugh, I LOVE Kindergarten is celebrating 300 followers with THREE Giveaways. Click on the pictures to go check them out and enter. It's great!!
