March Break – as it’s known in Canada – is in full swing and I am doing my best to keep our home intact, children alive, and mom sane. One of them is about to give, I know it.
Our plan to stay entertained is as follows: Kid friendly stuff that won’t break the bank. My faithful Escape, Big Red, is on her last
legs tires, so there’s a big expense in our future. Our activities may include, but are not limited to: play dates with friends, activities are our local library, visiting a maple syrup festival, indoor swimming and skating, visiting the bookstore for their activities, baking, getting crafty, and visiting with some friends and relatives.
After the playdate, they came home and clearly hadn’t had enough entertainment. I offered them the exciting adventure of cleaning up after themselves, but there were no takers. Shocker. But when I told them Dairy Queen was giving out free ice-cream they were all in! Again, shocker. So we headed out for a walk to the mall (walking = calorie free ice cream right?).
The cherry on top of this ice-cream sundae of a day was when Daddy came home and took them out to dinner at Tim Horton’s – their favourite “restaurant”. Dad doesn’t take photos quite as much as mom does, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
March Break Monday down – only a million more days to go.
