Mommy Teacher Spring Break

I remember when spring break used to be a week at the beach, party cups, and friends for days.
Now, my spring break (as you are going to see) still includes friends, but it revolves around my kids and not my suntan…. But who needs a suntan anyway right? …. Well, since you asked….I do.  But, I am 7 months pregnant and it was actually a chilly week so, that wouldn’t have happened anyway.
I have to admit,  ever since I went back to working full time … I miss my kids so much that I SAVOR my time with them even more.

With a week of just me and my angels, I took the liberty of jumping on board of EVERY playdate adventure I caught wind of, and here is what my crazy-busy, awesome week looked like:

Monday – Zoo DAY

Packed the wagon, clipboards, zoo checklist, and lunches…

After nap time, we even made it to the neighborhood school playground and nearby park too… we really made the most of our day outside!

Tuesday – Exporing Downtown Baton Rouge

We packed our lunches, umbrella strollers, and blankets and headed to a trolley stop in Downtown Baton Rouge.   We started singing “The Wheels on the Trolley…” when my baby started crying it was perfect timing for “The Baby on the trolley goes wah wah wah” haha



Trolley Ride Baton Rouge



We took a little stair-step picture of the kids from tallest to shortest in front of the State Capitol…

After venturing to the top of the State Capitol, we had a picnic out front as we waited for the trolley to swing back around…

Wednesday – Fire Station Tour and Easter Egg Hunt Party

My friend set up a local Fire Station Tour where we maxed out the place with the youngest crew possible…

Sean Patrick was intrigued, and then scared, when the firefighter did his suit-up demonstration…

The Easter Egg Hunt Party we went to was way too fun for a simple, last-minute thing my friend threw together….

I’m still loving the bandana-liner idea from last year.

Thursday – Louisiana Arts and Science Museum

The LASM in downtown Baton Rouge has a great little discovery depot that was so developmentally appropriate for my under 3 year olds.  It has so many age-appropriate learning stations for them to explore…

Friday – Bass Pro Shop and Sunrise Assisted Living

We made our way to Bass Pro Shop in Denham Springs, La to take pictures with the Easter bunny…. only to get the memo a little late that we would miss the bunny all-together (live and learn!)  We found plenty to do…

After “Driving” the stationary truck out front Sean Patrick “Rode” the statue of a horse too…

Right before he picked out a fishing pole (that he uses every day!)

Then, we went to visit my mom (who has Alzheimers) and decided to take a picture with the Bunny Decor at the Assisted Living Residence since we missed the bunny at bass pro…

Weekend Fun – Crawfish Boils and Easter Celebration at the Camp

Finally, we wrapped up the weekend with two crawfish boils (dont be alarmed…below is a fake, plastic crawfish)…

Took a family pic (minus smiles) …

And went fishin in the lakefront (in the closest thing to a swimsuit) with the pole from bass pro…

And I wouldn’t trade ONE minute of it…. for my old Spring Break tan 😉

I hope that if you are on Spring Break right now with your kids off of school that you are able to join forces with your friends and come up with some play dates… it makes for such memorable moments!

    Sounds like you had a very similar week to ours! We went to the park to feed the ducks, had a playdate at our house, went to the Zoo of Acadiana, went to Kart Ranch, drove down to Houma on Good Friday, had a glow in the dark egg hunt at our house on Saturday and church and family time on Sunday!
