This week was an odd week because we were on the road a lot. A LOT.
Monday – We were heading home from Albany on Monday so we kept it simple and had Pajamas and Movies Day. We left the kids in their pajamas all day and let them watch movies the whole ride home (like we wouldn’t have done that anyway, but they thought it was special). We also let them watch a movie while we ate dinner (which is very unusual) so that was a real treat for them. Cost: $0
Tuesday – The kids and I were on the road again on Tuesday heading to Myrtle Beach, so finding a theme for today was a little tough. We had Curious George Day. I let the kids wear their Curious George shirts and we watched our Curious George movies in the car. Cost: $0
Wednesday – We were in Myrtle Beach on Wednesday, but unfortunately it was raining, so no beach for us. Instead, we had Museum Day. Myrtle Beach has a cute little Children’s Museum, so we spent a few hours there. It wasn’t as great as the Children’s Museum in Atlanta, but the kids still really enjoyed it and it wore them out, so they took really great naps. Cost: $24 ($8 per person admission to the museum)
Thursday – It was finally sunny on Thursday so it was Beach Day! Hooray! Isabelle had a blast! She didn’t even care that the water was freezing. Josh wasn’t such a big fan of the water, but he enjoyed playing in the sand. Cost: $0
Friday – We headed home from Myrtle Beach on Friday, so it was another day spent entirely in the car. It’s rough to plan themes for the week when you have three whole days in the car. Friday was kind of a cop-out on my part, but I was running low in the idea department, so we had Animal Day. Isabelle chose to be a cat named Fairy Tale for the day. She got to meow instead of answering yes or no to questions and I called her Fairy Tale all day. For snack we had animal crackers. Cost: $0
I don’t think we did too pathetic of a job this week, but next week will be much better, I promise!
