February Vacation

It is February Vacation week here in Rhode Island. I am planning some fun activities with the kids for the week. Some of my plans include a trip to Mystic Aquarium, play-dates with friends, a trip to the local library and possibly something new and different like ice skating. Unfortunately it is too cold this week for some of our favorite things to do, like going to the local farm to feed the animals, visiting the zoo and going to a playground.

I am always looking for new things to do that will not break the bank. I would love to hear what some of you do during vacation weeks with your kids, especially those of you with younger kids!

  1. Yesterday was Family Day here in Canada. my son had no school, my daughter's group program was closed, my husband took the day off work, and grandma came to visit. Because there was no rush in the morning to get everyone everywhere....we had a leisurely breakfast with pancakes, eggs, bacon....homemade bread and jam. something we would never have the time to day on a typical Monday morning. The kids loved it! And we just let the rest of the day go the same. no hurry, no worry. We ended the day with a family swim at the local community centre, and then a great dinner together. We spent under $10 for the swim....that's it all day. and we had a blast. it was a good day to just take time to do some of the little things you just can never fit it.
