Monday I worked a full 8 or 9 hour day and Tuesday I worked about a 13 hour day. I knew month-end was going to be a rough time to take-off, but I had no choice when the kid's break was. My scheduled time off was a half day on Wednesday, but that didn't got very well. I took the kids to Happy Hour at Steak N Shake from 3-4 and then worked until church time. Then I called all the guys I work for, gave them the updates on all their files and turned my e-mail/work phone off.
Today was the day of fun. I had multiple travel days planned out, but I could convince Jason to take off and go with me, so I decide to stay local - and the day turned out great!
I like to torture the kids and not tell them what we are going to do. Partially, because it is torture and partially because it leaves me the option to change my mind.
There is a new Jump Park in town that is full of trampolines. It is crazy expensive for a one hour pass and they only allow a certain number of people, but it is Spring Break, and I was going for it! When we parked the line was out the door, but we were almost an hour early for the noon hour. I had signed all the waivers online for today, but it said no reservations left for noon, but for some reason, I was still going for it. We got up to the counter and she logged in five kids and then yelled "Noon Slot if FULL". We were the last ones in. Everyone behind us had to wait another hour and they were not happy. The kids were ecstatic by that and laughing at the grown woman behind acting like a 2-yr old because she didn't get in.
Here are pictures from this adventure:
Of course, we had to ride the Carousel
