We are a week past Spring Break, but I wanted to post and record all the fun we had before I forget. I didn’t manage to plan a menu for the week, but I did come up with a menu of fun to keep us busy and out of the house.
I hope to devote a full blog post to some of these specific activities because they were so much fun. In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of how we spent our week.
Monday — Rebounderz
I had a coupon/deal to use up, so after I got my morning workout out in, we drove out to Rebounderz in Sterling where we bounced like crazy. The kids had a great time jumping, and drove me crazy with the arcade games.
Tuesday — Oxon Hill Farm
Oxon Hill is a working farm operated by the National Park Service. It is a laid back place with lots of opportunities to get up close and personal with the animals. We loved it! Afterwards we went to the National Harbor and enjoyed free cone day, courtesy of Ben & Jerry’s.
Wednesday — Greater Reston Art Center (GRACE)
Wednesday we stayed home in the morning, enjoying a chance to relax. Then I took the kids to my noon workout, and from there we drove out to GRACE in Reston where the kids got to observe art and then create their own.
Thursday — Play Date and Egg Dying
Thursday was another take-it-easy kind of day. We hung around at home and then went to a friend’s house in the afternoon. The kids played and dyed eggs and I enjoyed some adult companionship.
Friday = Daddy Day — Cub Run and Backyard Camping
Thankfully Mike took Friday off work and took over managing the kid fun. They visited a park, went swimming at Cub Run, and then capped off the evening by camping out side under the stars. I took advantage of my free day to get a hair cut and do some shopping.
Of course, Sunday was Easter and we had a wonderful time with family. All in all, we had a great time staying home over Spring Break and enjoying a staycation.
