It's hard to be fun when you don't want to spend money (hello new brakes and rotors on our van!) and you don't really want to mess up naptime (hello most sacred hour of the day!) or bedtime (hello other most sacred hour of the day!) or mealtimes.....so we really had to use our imagination this week to make the kids think it was the Special Break they were deserving. I didn't make them do much homework. And they didn't have as many chores. So that was special. We went to 3 different parks. We went to the track. We went on a bike ride. We went to the library.
But we did manage to sneak in a few trips that were more than 10 miles away from home.

***Hub took a day off to accompany us to Discovery Gateway. This one was on Isaac since he scored a 6-person-pass at school. Good thing because I can't imagine paying 60 bucks to fight with the rest of Utah County to play with some legos. Just kidding. It was a fun place but waaaaay too crowded. It was fun running into a couple of neighbors there.
**We also had a couple soccer practices and a soccer game where the sun actually shone. It was a little bit of heaven after enduring games where it was snowing.
