Despite the popularity of leaving town over spring break, we stayed home over spring break. I am amazed at how many people go on really big trips over spring break. Like Mexico, the Caribbean, Dominican Republic, Arizona, Colorado, California, even Europe!? The boys didn't mind being home at all and we found plenty of things to do. We went swimming at the community center one day since we really have done that since over the summer months. The waterslide and climbing wall were open and that's a big bonus for the big boys. Finn loved loved the water so I feel like this summer will be fun for him.
We went to two open gyms at the fitness center so I could get in a work out, but additionally the boys have been asking to go and play floor hockey in the gym. Aiden has, in fact, been asking to do this since he turned six in January because you have to be six to play with the bigger kids in the gym.
We went to see the movie Zootopia and we had dinner with our best friends at one of our favorite places one evening. The movie was a lot of fun as we had 16 close friends there to share in the fun!
We also went to an indoor play area with huge slides and things to climb and expend lots of energy. This was a good idea since we actually had snow on one off our "spring" break days off. Lastly, the boys played in a pick up hockey game with several teammates and friends from school one afternoon. They have not been on the ice a whole lot after our season ended so this was on their list of things to do over spring break. It was a special treat for Luke and Aiden because they got to be goalies.
Lastly, even though the weather was not all that "spring-like", the boys played a lot of hockey in their rollerblades on the driveway with neighbors. They met a good friend named Xavier that has been coming over the play hockey quite a bit with the boys.
After our egg dying fiasco last year, we tried something different this year. Aiden has an egg allergy and cannot handle eggs at all. He will become very itchy and uncomfortable so we have to be cautious when he is around eggs. If you read the blog, you might remember that we tried to dye some fake eggs that were sold at a local store and it was a total disaster. They didn't hold the dye at all and the boys were pretty disappointed. This year, however, I purchased some plastic gloves and taped them to Aiden's arms and we used real eggs. Everyone really loved it, especially Finn who missed out on doing eggs last year. We were still very cautious and had Aiden take a bath afterwards, but thankfully all turned out well.
