My kids are on Spring Break. It is strange, considering spring doesn't officially start until March 21. Oh well, it's a break.

Last week, the kids got out Thursday at noon and then had Friday off so our spring break started early. We drove to the Boston area to see Pete's parents. The real reason for the trip was for Pete, his sister and their dad to be able to check out some homes for my mother-in-law. She has Alzheimer's and she requires constant attention. Pete's dad has done great with her, but he is still working and can't take care of her all the time. They do have a woman that is there M-F during the day, but he is needing help on the weekends. While they didn't find THE place, they saw what was out there. I think there are some other places they will look into.

While they were checking out nursing/ assisted living homes, the kids, myself, my mother-in-law and her helper, went to the Children's Museum in Boston. We were there all day! The kids had a blast. We had lunch at a place called Flour just around the corner and it was delicious. After lunch, we headed back in to the museum.

Saturday, the cousins from New York City showed up. I didn't see my kids for the rest of the weekend. Ha!

Sunday we left mid-morning and had great driving weather the whole way. I'm so ready for warm weather and sunshine.

The house is a mess and needs much attention. I'm sure whatever I do today will be undone by tonight!
Oh well, I need to get busy anyway.

Sounds like loads of fun! :o) I wish we had such nifty kiddy-friendly places in Dunhillbillydee... Alas, the closest we come to entertainment for them is watching the cows and goats meander by our fence. Haha!
