The

Orange Terrace Library is now open!  I took my boys yesterday and we are thrilled to have a Library so close. Today we are going back and we will do our school work there.  

Their shelves aren’t full… but it is new, smells good (if you’ve been to Main Library then you know what I mean!) and they even have a coffee bar complete with treats!

FYI- They are closed on Monday’s…

Home Vacation…

This past week we were supposed to go to Las Vegas with the kids.  We planned to stay at Mandalay Bay for 3 or 4 nights, lay by the pool, eat out, just relax.  Well… Last minute we decided to cancel the trip.  Instead we decided to stay home.  My Husband talked about going into work a few days this week, but then we thought…”hmmm why don’t we just vacation at home?”

So that is exactly what we are doing.  Sleeping in.  Out by the pool most of the day.  Eating out.  Going to the movies.  Lot’s of family time.  We are having a great time!  And one of the best things about it is that we aren’t spending oodles of dough on hotel rooms and gas.  And while eating out is a expensive, it much more expensive in Vegas…

I guess you could say it is a free vacation!

What could you do to “vacation at home”?

We enjoyed the Bee Movie yesterday.  It was great.  My local theater in Orangecrest offers $5 matinées.  I did all the calculations and did in fact discover that it was cheaper to drive to the free movie for us, than pay the $15 for a matinées.  We also saw a lot of familiar faces… save on mom’s!
