Life Lately-Spring Break Edition

Spring Break has come and gone already.  I can't believe that the next break will already be summer.  Hannah will be a third grader and Evan will be in his last year of preschool.  Crazy!

Our Spring Break started with a fun little trip to Tulsa for the NCAA tournament.  We got to our hotel and quickly realized it was the hotel where the opposing team (Michigan State) was staying at. Scott was hoping thats not a bad sign :)
We watched all of the players and the coach get out of the elevator.
Hannah was really getting into March Madness and KU basketball this year.  She knows all of the KU players and a bunch of stats about them.  She was nervous for the games and screamed at the TV.  I know Scott must have been very proud and excited.  
Evan really likes to play basketball right now (we have the Little Tikes basketball goal) and he enjoyed going to the game, but didn't get into it as much.  He said afterwards that he liked the first game better.  He still thinks because of half time that its two games.  Haha!
I think Evan was getting a little sleepy
This game ended well and we won't talk about the rest of the tournament, OK.
While they were at the game Nora and I did some shopping and made a stop at Starbucks for a cake pop.
It is always fun to visit a Lulu store.
After the big win we went out for pizza and the restaurant gave the kids some pizza dough to play with.  Oh man I wish every restaurant would do this.  Entertainment for hours:)
They had this huge bracket up at the hotel and then the next morning after Michigan State left they tore it down right away :).  Scott saw somebody else asking for it and they gave it to that guy.  He wishes he would have thought to ask for it.

We are in the middle of potty training and it was going great, but have come across a few hurdles :)
She is such a character 
Here she is wearing Hannah's softball jersey, a diaper cover on her head and Evan's shoes.
Always stylish…..
Fort building with a couple of big boxes!  Why do we keep buying toys for kids???  I think I should de-clutter the playroom and get rid of most of their toys.
We had a really warm day and the kids wanted to go swimming, but the pool is obviously not open yet, so they came up with another solution pretty quickly.  Thankfully we have a hot water spout outside.
We also had crepes at the food truck that day.
The next afternoon we packed up again and headed to Branson to see grandma and grandpa for a few days.
Grandma readin bedtime stories
Branson was very busy for Spring Break.  We checked out the new Fritz's Adventure place and it was really cool, but super busy.  We didn't even get to do the really fun stuff like ropes courses etc.  And Nora is not tall enough to do most of the stuff, but of course she really wants to do it, so it was a little tough.  Still we had a great time.  The next day we headed to Silver Dollar City and it was very crowded as well, so we only stayed for a few hours.
Hannah doesn't want to go on any of the roller coasters, but then she always looks bored on the little kids rides.
I can't believe Nora is now tall enough to ride some rides by herself.  She loves it and was just giggling the entire time.
You can see that Hannah's tummy was tickling here during the "drop"

When we cam home our tulips were blooming.  Always my favorite.  Evan and I planted over 80 bulbs last Fall and most of them came up.  Yeah!
We had one more day of Spring Break after returning and decided to be productive.  Hair cuts for Hannah and Evan!
Here is the crazy smile face again.
This one didn't get a hair cut yet, but still wanted her picture taken
