Spring Break Staycation Experiment

Day #1 with 7 more weekdays with no school for either boy to come.

Pablo: Dad, can we go to San Diego?

Jefe: Sorry, buddy, not now.

Pablo: How about Arizona?

Jefe: Mama has to work. We can’t go anywhere that far without a little more planning.

When you are staying in town and school is out for Spring Break, things can get tougher. You have a lot more time to fill and the kids’ energy levels have not brought down to normal from a half day of school. Apparently many of Pablo’s friends are going somewhere warm this week. We are not, though it is supposed to be in the 60s here in a few days.

Day #1 Itinerary
Matinee of How to Train Your Dragon 3D (very good, see it)
Played at an indoor train playset in the lobby
Puzzles
Library – stocked up on supplies for the week
Dress up like ninjas, soldiers, football players
Outdoor “football”

Stay tuned and see how we survive. Anyone else in this predicament?

    Mike is in the same predicament this week. I am working all week, but will try to do some special activities with the crew in my non-work hours. Did Doodles handle the movie alright? I’m wondering if it would be okay for B (he is very sensitive, especially to loud noises (like the part in Cars when McQueen falls out of the back of Mac “fast-forward the scary part!”)

    Mike and I are interested in going to see Greenberg too.

    my spring break went by without me noticing. My big plan was to read a book about physicists, a read so dry it would make the Mojave look like Seattle. The worst part was the isolation, as everyone else was busy with their usual work-lives. Don’t make the mistake about complaining during your spring break because everyone will make you feel bad for not being grateful for getting an entire free week off.
