A Winter Reward

While all the school kids were in class making up snow days on President's Day, Jack got a reward for charging through all nine days that the others were out.

A friend in Oklahoma City was having a birthday party on Sunday, so we got a hotel and had a little vacation.

There was swimming,

playing with friends,

and watching King of the Hill. For some reason, Jack wants to watch it every time he's at a hotel, and I usually let him, even though he doesn't get to watch it at home.

The kids were up early enough Monday morning to watch some cartoons and still be in the pool by 7:30.

We were planning to go to the zoo, but since it was so cold, we went to the science museum instead. Jack's first stop is always the face painting!

Alice enjoyed herself, too, even if the six year olds moved a little faster than she did.

After a long lunch with friends, we headed home. It was so nice to get to take a break!
