Since I share so much of our weekend over on instagram stories I have been a little lack lately with posting about my weekend adventures on the blog as well. I don’t want to overwhelm people with the same photos, but if you still enjoy to see these posts on the blog let me know and I will go back to doing them weekly.
This weekend we went on a little fishing adventure to Tanglewood Preserve in Rockville Centre. It’s on the smaller side, which makes it really easy to bring your kids too. They can’t really get into much trouble and disappear from your sight!
There is a nice big dock area where you can line up and fish. Of course we didn’t catch anything there. We walked a little further and found an area that was actually full of litter, which was so sad. I figured nothing was in there, but Jon swore he saw something so we set up shop there and got to fishing!
Look at Asher’s cute face!
We stayed for a little over 2 hours and the kids enjoyed running, playing hide and seek and fishing!
After our little outdoors adventure we went for a bite to eat at The Flour Shoppe Cafe in Rockville Centre. It is always a treat to eat here. Everything is delicious. Just note that it is really popular which means there might be a wait, but it’s worth it!
We were so hungry, which actually ordered dessert before our lunch arrived! The boys each got a little chocolate chip cookie and Jon and I shared this amazing Nutella stuffed donuts! Insanely good! Like still thinking about it good.
Don’t worry I still had room for my lunch. I ordered a Croque Madame and it was insanely delicious as well!
If you are local to Long Island/NYC I highly recommend taking a trip and having a bite!
On Sunday we celebrated April Fools and Easter! The boys were super excited to prank people so they put a bowl of cereal/milk in the freezer the night before to trick grandpa the next morning. They also swapped out our goldfish with carrots! Jon and I stayed up Saturday night getting our pranks ready as well! We made jello and put in their cups with straws so that when they tried to drink their juice on Sunday morning it wouldn’t budge! Haha. I also took Lucky Charms and made a rice krispy treat mixture with it by adding melted butter and marshmallow and I put it in cereal bowls with the spoons as well. They got a kick out of it in the morning.
Normally we have a lot of family over for holidays, but this year we were all by ourselves, which was nice as well. It was a really low key and relaxing sort of time. Lots of fun with my immediate family, Easter egg hunt, then a scavenger hunt and a yummy meal.
All in all it was an excellent weekend!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend as well! Whether you were celebrating Passover or Easter or just a fun weekend!
