For several years now, we have ended our summer with a trip to the Cape Codder. The kids love this tradition. This year we enjoyed time in the water park, visiting the inflatable park and going once again to Water Wiz.
I’m not sure how many more years they will want to go with us, but seeing how much they have grown every year (and now making their own s’mores), is a reminder of all our summer fun and traditions we have created.
For years we have taken the kids to the Big Apple Circus. Chris’ parents enjoy coming with us as well. It had been on City Hall Plaza and our adventure involved taking the bus (always fun with little kids). Last year there was no circus as the Big Apple Circus filed for bankruptcy. We missed going and the kids even mentioned missing the tradition realizing the spring past without our trip. But this year it is back- at a different location- but still the same circus we have enjoyed for years!
School vacation week has become a mix of family time and time to hang out with friends- a staycation to catch up with people we like to hang out with. This one was a great one.
Vacation week kicked off with Aidan’s rescheduled airsoft birthday party. Some of the highlights included a trips to the Magic Beans rope course, 5 Wits and a trampoline park with Ella and Laurel. Brendan had a special trip (more on that later) and Aidan went to play laser tag.
