Ah, March Break. It already feels like just a distant memory.
I was fortunate to be home last week - and we took advantage with a staycation of sorts.
We slept in, actually ate breakfast and planned our days as they went.
We had my cousin's son from Slovenia staying with us for the first half of the week - nights were late and full of laughter and music. Ava had an absolute blast!
So much so, she didn't want to go to bed each night for fear of missing out. #thestruggleisreal
Julian hung out with friends most of the week - they have an odd fascination with all things Tim Horton's these days.
What's most interesting is that he won't walk to the corner store but somehow, can walk 5kms in -10 degrees to get there. #thingsthatmakeyougohmm
Pizza delivery and a couple of sleepovers later - he's a happy camper.
Does anyone else have a teenage boy in the house? If so, can you tell us when he stops eating ALL THE THINGS? Thanks.
I surprised Ava with tickets to see Disney on Ice on Thursday morning - we had the best experience.
I was pretty impressed with how well organized the event venue was making it a breeze for families many of whom had crazy young kids.
The concessions are INSANELY priced but that's to be expected I guess - as was the $30 price tag for parking. Huh?
Ms. Ava Grace says she thinks we should make this an annual March Break tradition.
I'm thinking my surprise was an obvious hit.
One step closer to that coveted mother of the year award.
On Friday, all of the kiddos, including Isabella, were home and while we had every good intention to go out for breakfast as a family, sleeping in won out.
Honestly, that alone is a vacation for this girl.
Ava and I had a last-minute invite including IMAX seats to see Beauty and The Beast in the city so we took advantage.
It was truly magnificent.
A must-see whether you have kids or not.
Also, did we know that Emma Watson could sing?
Well, sadly, it's over.
As you read this, I am likely sitting at my desk contemplating a second coffee.
Our friends at Church + Dwight put together a fun selection of post-march break survival goodies - in case you didn't do as well.
Open to Canadian residents only.
