I will plan to take at least one telephone/internet/work free day & spend it with my kids. :) Obviously I'll still have to cook and clean, but hopefully I can do a lot of that the day before & we can have at least one SPECIAL fun experience each week. This will be in addition to & on top of our typical play-dates and activities.
So far, I have just signed the boys up for "Kids Skate Free" at the Peninsula Family Skating Center in Newport News. We will probably only do this on the weekend, since the week-day hours are late.
We have Busch Gardens season passes & do try to go at least once a week.
We can go to the beach.
There are lots of local parks we can check out:
Windsor Castle (in Smithfield)
Oak Grove Lake
Portsmouth City Park
Portsmouth also opened a Splash Park which costs $2 per person, per day.
We can go out to Mom & Dad's house for fun in the country. (Planning June 8-9th already...need to pick dates for July & August.)
We'll do something fun for the Fourth of July.
We'll also have Vinnie's 2nd Birthday in August, with a Geo-Trax train theme...complete with a rented cotton candy machine!
We can do a backyard camp-out.
