Spring Break antics

Hamza's Science Fair performance was definitely the highlight of spring Break 2016, but there was a lot more that we did during the week. Part of our 'staycation' involved a trip to our local adventure park, for a go at the very challenging rock course.

Probably a little too challenging for Bilal, he finally gave up when he was more than 1/2 way through the course. Hamza completed the course, which ended in a zip line. Bilal still wants to go back some time, but perhaps he will start with the junior course until he has some practice.

We also took another walk/ride down to the Cahaba River.

Another fun activity was a trip to Pine Mountain, GA, to visit the Wild Animal Safari. We last visited several years ago, before Bilal was born. It was certainly worth a trip back.

We drove through the park, stopping to feed a variety of animals on the way. As you'll see, they were very comfortable sticking their heads into the car and beg for food, although some were more eager than others.

One our way back home we stopped for a couple of hours in Auburn to visit Safa, and to enjoy a delicious dinner.

Safa will stay in Auburn until after her finals in May, so it was nice to be able to visit her, even if just for a short time.

The school year is winding down; Bilal has standardized testing next week, and Hamza has started studying for his finals/ AP exams. Then we are looking forward to a long summer break. It will be great to have Safa back home, and I'm sure Hamza is looking forward to catching up on sleep!
