First off can we get a big WOOHOO because it’s finally FRIDAY!!!!! And not only is it FRIDAY, it’s the Friday before SPRING BREAK! Now I’d love to say that I’m looking forward to basking in the sun, a man/pedi, sleeping in, catching up on all my Bravo shows and some much needed “me” time but with a two year old and 8 month old as our plus two those activities will
neve r happen tire out entertain our little ones for the WHOLE WEEK. As much as we love the beach and can’t wait to get our toes in the sand, we will let the crazies leave before we head out there. After some “googling” and “facebooking” here is my top 5 Spring Break ideas:
5. Welcome to the Jungle – Pack everyone up in the car and head south to the Gladys Porter Zoo. We haven’t been there in ages and are looking forward to taking the minis out there. Note to self: Don’t forget the sunscreen! My two year old will finally get the opportunity to see another animal besides our cocker spaniel!! I’m a little bummed that the Giraffe exhibit is closed for repair but nonetheless I’m sure we will spot some interesting creatures out there. They are open Monday – Friday from 9:00-5:00 and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00-5:30. Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for children 2-13 and free for children under 2.

4. Budding Picassos – The Tipsy Canvas has a couple of options for the kiddos as well. They offer a Kids Class on Saturdays from 10-2 and also a Spring Break Art Camp that will run from March 10th-13th. The cost of the camp is $125 and includes 4 paintings, a daily snack, Tipsy Canvas T-shirt, and casual art show. Ages 5 and up are welcome. To register your budding Picassos visit their website. NOTE: If you haven’t visited the Tipsy Canvas yourself, gather up your girlfriends and register ASAP. It makes for a great GNO!
3. Hit the GYM – The Little Gym of McAllen will be having Spring Break Camps next week, March 10-March 15.
Monday: All Sorts of Sports & A Little Dancing
