Friday Shopping Totals and Happy Easter

easter

 

Happy Friday! Unlike most of the country I think, my kids did not have their spring break this week. They only have off today so we are enjoying it. We will be dying our Easter eggs, making some Easter cupcakes and watching Frozen for the thousandth time :). 

We will have a quiet Easter this year, just us. I love watching the kids hunt for eggs and then we normally have a big family breakfast. My kids are strange they will only eat Ham on special holidays so we do a holiday breakfast instead. I love that I do not have to spend all day in the kitchen this year and am looking forward to just hanging out with my husband and the kids. 

Since I did not have a huge feast planned and no guests coming my shopping should have been on the lighter side. Well, since the ad ran for over a week I decided to do a few stock up’s this cycle. Over my budget again but my baking section is fully stocked with goodies.

Here are my totals this Easter week:

Spent – $121.86

Saved – $144.97 or 54%

Butterscotch Baked French Toast

Butterscotch Baked French Toast

 

This Butterscotch Baked French Toast will look like you slaved over the stove making them all morning. They are so simple and come out looking beautiful!

Perfect for a brunch or any quick and easy breakfast. I am telling you they are so simple to make yet a very impressive recipe once they hit the table.

On the weekends we usually do a big family breakfast at least one morning. Since the weekdays are so crazy with school and my husband running off to work, we never have much time to eat breakfast together as a family of five. The Butterscotch Baked French Toast has become a family favorite and I get requests almost every weekend to make them

Nothing is easier than a simple baked french toast recipe. There is no more standing in the kitchen dipping and flipping each slice of bread. Mix,pour and pop them in the oven and you are done!

Family Fun Day at Boomers!

 Disclosure: I was provided one of the products for free to complete my review. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are 100% mine.

boomers!

At least once a month on a Sunday we take the kids for a family fun day. A couple of weekends ago we had the opportunity to take the kids to Boomers!. If you have never been to Boomers!, it’s a family fun entertainment complex!

family fun

Boomers! offers something for everyone:

  • Arcade games
  • Miniature golf
  • Go-karts
  • Bumper boats
  • Rock wall 
  • Laser tag
  • Mini bowling
  • Bating cages 

Boomers! bumper boats

Boomers! laser tag

We did it all! At Boomers! you can get a 4 hour play passes. You get 4 hours of unlimited play on the attractions for just $29.99. We had enough time to do everything and even enjoy lunch.

Boomers! lunch

Boomers! snacks

I was very impressed with their menu as well. A wide variety of options and at very reasonable prices. The kids had chicken tenders and I have to say it was not what I’d expect. It was as good as a platter at any restaurant we normally take the kids to lunch for. 

Boomers! go-karts

 

 

 

go-karts

After lunch my daughter and husband took a ride on the go-karts. That was her favorite! You need to be over 40″ to ride as a passenger and 58″ to drive. Next we headed to the bumper boats which she was excited that she could be like one of the big kids and ride alone. My boys each took a turn with my husband and that was hands down the boys favorite part of the day.

If you are looking for another option other than the 4 hour pass that we had Boomers! offers different packages depending on your needs:

  • STARTER – Good for any 3 Single Use Attractions ($19.99) 
  • PRO – God for any 5 Single Use Attractions ($24.99) 
  • CHAMP- 4 Hours Unlimited Attractions ($29.99) BEST VALUE Only $26.99 when purchased online - SAVE $3.00 $5 coupon valid until 4/30
  • You can also purchase a COMBO MEAL for only $7.99 with the purchase of any value pack (Savings of $4)
  • PASSENGER PASS for the younger kids ($9.99) Good for unlimited passenger rides on Go Karts and Bumper Boats. Also includes one free Round of Miniature Golf.

If none of these packages are what you need Boomers! also offers single attractions prices. Just pay for what you want. 

family fun day

Overall our day at Boomers! exceeded out expectations. We will be back for sure for a family fun day!

Our local Boomers! is about a 15 minute drive but as soon as we pulled out of the parking lot I turned around and saw this.

boomers! fun

I’d say they had a great time!
