Spring Break at home, in Central NY, has been a good one thanks, to warmer weather. Like bats out of a cage, my kids get dressed (a tad too summery) and out the door riding bikes before 9am with the neighbor kids. I'm pleased as punch to have the windows opened and parkas packed.
Midweek we had a wet snow day so we took advantage of our membership at The National Museum of Play in Rochester, NY.
If you're ever within a couple of hours of the Museum, and have kids of any age, make the trip-it will not disappoint. Hours and hours of imaginative play await behind every corridor. See more photos on Instagram
Work up an appetite for dinner at cult-favorite, Dinosaur BBQ just a minute away in an old railroad station overlooking the Genessee River. It's noisy and the portions are gargantuan. The perpetual line of people waiting tells all.
We also took advantage of a Groupon (still available today) for bowling. A few weeks ago we went on a date and I couldn't help imagining my kids would go wild for the flashing lights and music, and they sure did. It was a party from the start, when we didn't leave the house until after dinner and were at the bowling alley at 10pm!
Groupon or check your local lanes for specially priced days (I noticed $2 Tuesdays).
