Spring Break

in the Paulsen house, it's adventure week! Or in other words "mommy's spring break."

The other day, we went to campus and rode the glass elevator. (Which still makes mommy nauseous ... I hate seeing the ground!). The kids thought this was an adventure worth having every day!

then we went to the park, had a picnic. And here we are at a friends house, playing on the swings!
The kids are so different from each other. That's for sure.
<- Jacob wants to do it "all by himself." And hates being pushed, because he hates going high.

<- Brandon prefers swinging at his own pace, on his belly.

While Megan, little monkey, wants to swing high, fast, and a lot ... for a really long time. What personalities! Today ... we're going to see the fish at Cabellas!

Bilibo giveaway

Ok, normally I so don't do this, but I have to comment about a giveaway I ran across today. It's for a Bilibo (look it up if you don't know what it is, thinkgeek even has them). It's a sort of turtle shell like toy for kids, and is basically a random large shell for extreme imagination.

I've seen these and thought, hey, I want one of those, but can't justify the price tag. (Nearing 25-30 dollars). It's cool, but not cheap.

Anyway, at this place, she is giving one away to a random follower. So I followed her ... because honestly, besides being interesting, it's a chance for a free kids toy.

The giveaway ends March 3, so do it by then! The chance of me getting the random toy is slim, but it's cute anyway. So go over there and try for it, it's more of an "imagination" than a "do something" toy, which kids need more of nowadays anyway.

:-) Have a great day all!
