Stay-cation – playdates, possible sleepovers and some sweet treats!

It’s Monday – the first day of school vacation here in Boston.

What to do…..what to do?  Whether it’s a playdate for your kids, a trip to Boston (not today though with all the marathoners!) or a surprise sweet treat, there is something to do that is close by and affordable. So, we are spending our week as a Stay-cation.

A vacation that is spent at one’s home enjoying all that home and one’s home environment has to offer is a Stay-cation. We will advenutre to some other towns so here is what we have planned. What is own your list for school vacation with your kids? 

Playdates and a possible sleepover – always a fun time for the girls to get together with friends.  A sleepover has been requested however the last (and I said only time) that we had 8 girls sleep over there was no sleeping – of course you would know that if you have a 8-10 year old girl! In the future we will limit it to one or two girls!

A trip to Treat Cupcake Bar in Needham, MA – I think this might be for me and not the girls. You choose a cupcake, a frosting and topping treats. YUM!

A visit to red box one night and “pan” popcorn (and a dash of parmasean cheese).

Rollerskating – can you say retro?  We usually head to Roller Kingdom in Tyngsboro

A day trip to Boston – swan boats, north end pizza and maybe Mike’s pastry!

For a fun water filled adventure, In Danvers there is the area’s indoor water park called Coco Keyes which the kids feel like they are on vacation far away.  Althought the last trip up there during winter break a few years ago was PACKED – so word of warning…

Enjoy your week!
