Spring Break 2014 -- Staycation

We toyed with the idea of going somewhere for Spring Break, but ultimately decided to stick around and explore some things in Boise we have yet to see. 

First stop, the zoo.  Aunt Amy took the two bigger boys for a quick trip in the Fall, but it was a first for Caleb and me.  Caleb loved the monkeys.
 So fun to be able to go with cousins.

 One of the highlights was the safari jeep they could climb in.
Caleb was in heaven!
 The little farm area was fun too.  Caleb really liked feeding the animals.
It was the warmest day of the week and a great day to be outside.
My birthday always falls during Spring Break. We had lunch with Daddy downtown (kind of a disaster) and later joined up with family for cake.  Thanks for baking Amy!
One morning, Daddy stayed home and we ran some errands.  Nothing is quite as exciting as the ride on toy at Walmart!
 Dillon was desperate to get to the Boise Aquarium.  On Friday, we finally made it. So fun to have all the Chandler cousins together! 
 These two have a love/hate relationship.   They are very similar and always want to be together, but drive each other crazy.  Love it! 
 This place was total hands on and the boys loved it!  I just need to remember to bring a change of clothes next time.  They all got pretty wet.

 Dillon heaven!  He was naming almost every species of fish and shark he saw.


 Aaron left work early to join the fun.  Although he did touch a sting ray, I think his favorite part of the day was playing with niece Violet.  She is such an awesome little baby!

 Saturday topped off the week with a visit from "Bruke" and a party for baby Lily's birthday.  Somehow I did not get one picture of that day.  Sad.  But the entire Chandler fam eventually made it and Lauren stuck around until today, so we've had lots of family fun.  Grateful to be close.
