April Vacation
The schools around here have been on break all week. It's definitely been a busy one. Last Saturday I wento a friend's house for a scrapbooking crop 2-11. I got a lot done although I highly doubt I'll ever be caught up. Monday I took the kids to the Roger Williams Zoo in RI. We go there a few times a year. They're renovating it; I can't wait to see what they do. Jess's favorite part was the giraffes and the fountain where she got soaked. Tuesday I met a friend and her son for lunch. I haven't seen her in 2 years and it was great to catch up. I took Jess with me to lunch but left Jason home since he would have been bored eating with 2 toddlers. He ended up having a friend over which kept him busy. Thursday we went to the Cape. We started off at Plymouth's Hearth and Kettle for breakfast so that we'd be ready for our excursion. Next it was off to the Sandwich glass blowing museum and then a hike at the Green Briar Nature Center. Later we went to the taco bar for lunch at Sam Diegos and toured the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory. We stopped at the Cape Cod mall so Jason could play at the arcade and the kids rode the carousel. On the way home, we stopped to buy sandals for Jason. Jess was exhausted by the time we got home and gave little fuss when it was time for bed. Friday I took Jess to the Plimoth Plantation for a couple of hours. She had fun chasing the chickens and petting the cow. She wasn't thrilled going inside the dark houses though. I went scrapbooking again that night. The week has flown by; only 36 more days until summer vacation!
Ready to start our excursion. Off for M&M pancakes!!
