We’re on the last few days of Spring break around here, you guys and phew. It’s been a good one, but I’m worn out. Their Spring break actually started on Friday with a snow day, but yesterday it was 70 degrees and sunny. Colorado weather, man. It’s crazy. Anyway, today I thought I’d share some of our smile worthy moments with you guys and remind you that making memorable moments doesn’t have to be expensive, or time consuming. Just BE THERE.
Skipping rocks (or at least attempting too) in the Arkansas river. We packed up a picnic full of sandwiches, drinks, Goldfish, and much more then loaded up, picked up my Mom and headed to check out Bishop’s Castle. The COOLEST thing I’ve seen in a long time. Google it and just browse.
A lot of our Spring break was spent in the basement with video games (hello, Super Nintendo) and VHS movies. Binging VHS movies with the kids makes my heart so happy. Teaching them to play Super Mario also makes me really happy. Owen said, “Wow, Mom! You’re really good at Mario” Ha. Uhh, yeah I am.
We squeezed in a zoo trip. Purchasing the zoo membership paid for itself after the 2nd visit. Seriously, look into memberships if you go often – totally worth the money!
We flew some kites at the park before some crazy weather blew our way. Wouldn’t be Colorado without the crazy weather though.
We played in some snow (because Colorado weather is weird), had a snowball fight, made a little snowman, just enjoyed the day as a family. Once everyone was practically frozen, we headed inside for hot cocoa & Goldfish Grahams S’mores.
What are your Spring break plans? Have you started pinning summer activities? Are you stressing how to keep your kids fed and entertained? Goldfish crackers are a staple in our house, how about in yours? We always have a big ole box and then various bags/prepackaged bags in the cabinet. They make for fun crafts, great snacks, traveling snacks, and so much more. Be sure to head to thePinterest page and YouTube channel for really great ideas for crafts/recipes/and so much more.
