Spring Break, 2014 - Part I

So I know you are probably shocked that I haven't written since my last 'break'...life these days doesn't seem to understand that there are only 24 hours in a day...no matter how many ways you try and slice it (and trust me, I've tried many options!) there is limited time to accomplish all the things I want to do! Which is why it's important to document the moments that seem to go right...and this week has been all 'right' in my book. 

We started our break off with a family trip to the Veledrone where we enjoyed Trucks Trucks Everywhere and Kid Fit Zone. Both events are phenomenal and having them there together just made it extra phenomenal.  

I imagine we won't be smiling quite so brightly when the firemen actually do make a trip to our house (or car, for that matter). 

Did you know trucker boys danced like this?! Who knew?? 

By the end of the week, we hadfinally  conquered our sudden and spastic fear of Glen and Glenda. Thank God.

Saturday evening we enjoyed a wonderful  Firework Finale of the Come See me Festival. We had cookouts, played with friends, did some tailgating, and watched the children run amucktill way too late. 

Fun at Jack & Rileys pre-firework! 


Lots of kisses from Mrs. Pam (his lady friend๐Ÿ’ƒ).

So cool watching the sky-divers make their entrance into the lakes area. W immediately busted out his 'God Bless America' as soon as he saw the American flag parachutes. God love him. 

Got to listen to some rock & roll guys. Super close, and super loud. 


Loved hanging out with my boys that Saturday. What a wonderfully lucky lady I am! 

Sunday, after working the sound booth at church (where I may not be fired after all!) we hosted a Spring Fling for the Board of Disabilities. It is one of my most favorite activities we do all year in the League. Such a rewarding experience that I will cherish always. 


This guy might have been my all-time favorite. Best moves ever. #mj4life 

Sweet girl kept spinning right out if her shoes. Her excitement and enthusiasm to interact to music is inspiring. Love watching her dance! 




Next, it was off to an Easter Egg hunt at the Shaw's house, a neighbor & teacher friend I am grateful to know now through my new job. 

Bet you didn't think they'd hide Easter eggs at the top of trees, did ya? ๐Ÿ˜‰



To round out an incredible weekend we got to have dinner with some incredible families!! Thank you, President Guyton, for opening your home and hearts for us to enjoy some great food, fun, and fellowship! 

Silly gooses! 

Sweet girls made an egg treasure hunt for EP and W. They had a BLAST!! 

And this boy definitely made a new BF. So sweet watching that little connection take off so quickly! 

Sometimes I worry about the amount of things we are able to pack into a weekend; but like I mentioned before, there are only so many hours in a day. And I couldn't be happier with how we chose to spend each and every one of them that weekend!

What a wonder Spring Break - Part 1 you all had! I'm guilty of just starting to read the Rollings Blog again for a long time but it is so good to be back, guys, reading about one of the most wonderful, fun-loving families I have ever seen! And I am so proud they are mine! Two amazing parents that love their little boy more than I have ever seen any two parents love a child! Nor have I seen any that are more dedicated to doing everything they can to bring that love and joy to hm! And just know that I love you all that much too! The pictures are wonderful and the happiness I see fills me with joy! Much, much love...Gigi
