April Vacation Itinerary

I’m feeling like a kid again, so much have I been looking forward to this school vacation!  We’re not even going anywhere – no Disneyworld, no timeshare, not even a trip to Cape Cod in the works.  Instead, I’m giddy at the prospect of staying in my pjs long into the morning, if I feel like it.  No alarm clocks to set, no morning commute.  No homework!!!! (thank you, teachers.)  A week of simple pleasures and easygoing fun.  But even as I daydream about the wonderful week that lies ahead, I’m not so naive to think that I won’t have to head off any quarreling between the kids.  That’s when I’ll pull out my April Vacation Itinerary, my go-to list of activities, projects, and events going on in Bristol and Warren this week, to help moms like me in our quest for a few days of family happiness!
