Greetings from Spring Break

by , posted on April 20th, 2011 in Ideas and Inspiration, News

Well friends, we just returned from a short trip to Virginia, where we visited the legendary Busch Gardens and the historic town of Williamsburg. I have so much I want to share with you; things I learned while there, like the best place to eat with the fam and insider tips to visiting the town. Tips that were given to me by friends and family who know it inside and out and were willing to share.

But that post will have to wait until another day. It’s spring break, so I’m a bit crazed. Kids being off school for a week will kind of do that to you, no?

There are, however, some things I did plan on sharing while we’re off this week. So here’s a bit of that. Please forgive the rapid fire nature of the links, but my brain is pulling itself in all different kinds of directions at the moment (Ahhhh!):

First up some brilliant Egg Decorating tutorials…

from Alisa Burke
Watercolor Easter Eggs

Confetti Eggs

from One Hungry Mama
Natural Easter Egg Dye

from Home Made Simple
Chalkboard Eggs


You guys know I'm a sucker for chalkboard paint


Also don’t forget! There’s only TWO days left in our Tiny Hats Contest! Get those entries in and your child could win a Robot and a $25 gift certificate to Ellie Bellie Kids.

Oh and before I leave one big thing…

Please visit our friend Chantale, whose daughter is trying the Screen Free Week challenge and cheer them on! Go Keira, go Keira, go!

    Busch Gardens! We’re planning to go there again this summer (hopefully it won’t be as crazy hot as it was last year). I can’t wait to go! Sounds like you guys had a ton of fun! I’d love to read up on places to eat with the family.. So far we love pf changs (since we don’t have that here in Mtl) and wait for it, Boston Market. lol!
    Thanks so much for that Screen Free week idea! We made it to Day 4 (morning) and I can honestly say, it’s been a complete success for us. Kids might pine for the boob tube the first day but afterwards, they just love diving into play! Thanks again Jen! Looking forward to your what to see, what to eat and what to do list in Virginia!
