"So what you are saying is you don't WANT my money?" Jack said as he worked me over with his mad negotiating skills.
"All I'm saying is I am not ready to negotiate yet." I replied with a smile.
"Well, you might wanna think about it because it looks like you need the money to me." he said.
It was all I could do to not totally start laughing during our spreak break never ending game of Monopoly. Jack and I both lost to Josiah who was quietly stacking houses and hotels on every property he owned. It's a low budget kind of spring break around here and board games rock our socks.
I gathered my kids together and told them it would be an "at home" vacation this week. We made a list of the things we could do together and surprisingly most of the items were relatively cheap ideas. I don't know what the cash flow is at your house but judging from the economy this might be a good time to trade fun and cheap ideas for a low budget spring break.
Here's what we have so far:
Play a board game from your childhood with your kids
Check out a new park (well new to us) in the next town over
Take a photo walk- buy disposable cameras for the kids and head out to walk the streets in our city
Go for a picnic
Go fishing at a local lake
Have a video game tournament- parents included
Make Lego and Bionicle videos
Make cookies together
Share the wealth, add your ideas to the list in the comments!
