Spring Break 2012

We had a few different ideas of what to do for Spring Break and we ended up doing a few day trips and fun activities around home. Our first trip was over state lines to Shreveport, Louisiana. The kids and I had never been to Louisiana before so now we can add another state to our lists of states we've been to. Our first stop was across the river to the boardwalk in Bossier City. They had a huge Pro Bass shop that we checked out and a bunch of shops up and down the river.
Checking out the fountain in the middle of the river walk.

We crossed back over the river back over to Shreveport and went to Sci Port. It is a science discovery museum.
The first thing we checked out was our heads on a platter.

We spent a few hours looking at all the fun exhibits and trying everything out. It was fun to go and see something new.
The next day we went to the East Texas Alligator farm.
Brad was the only one brave enough to hold the alligator and Luke and I were the only ones brave enough to touch it.

Checking out the gators.

On one side there was a big pond with about 40 or so alligators. The other side had another pond with ducks and geese to feed.

Brad bought a gator kabob. He told the kids if they ate alligator he'd buy them a snow cone.
Luke ate his gator! Actually everyone did except Kambree, she took a bite and then spit it out. (She still got a snow cone)
The alligators were huge and it was kind of neat to see so many all together.
We also hung out at Chuck E Cheese and celebrated two birthdays during spring break.

Your head on a plater is creepy.
