This past weekend was so much fun but exhausting. I am thankful that Z has the day off today! The weekend started with "boys day" where Scott and Z went to see dinosaurs at the museum and then out to lunch. Lil'C and I played games and made dinner together for my family while they were gone. Saturday night was a Mexican Fiesta with egg dying. My mom and dad helped color eggs while I finished up the fajitas. My sister Kristen and brother in-law came over too, it was really nice.
Sunday started off with the indoor egg hunt that the Easter Bunny set up and then we had pancakes and bacon (Z's favorite breakfast). I dressed them in their new Easter clothes, which Lil'C helped pick out and quickly snapped a few photos. Thankfully I left the tags on because they were all upset about the new clothes and so I dressed them in more comfortable clothes and will take the Easter things back to the store. Oh Well....
After we were dressed, we headed down to the farm for a wonderful day. The Easter Bunny set up a very special outdoor egg hunt, complete with Remax Open House Arrows to help along the way. It was so cute and the kids had so much fun following the signs to find the eggs and treasure.
After the hunt we had an amazing gluten free meal (I am still full) and Mimi made the kids a super fun fort to play in. They also spent a bunch of time playing in the grass (Oh Spring!), watching movies with Great Grandma, blowing bubbles outside (50 degrees at dusk!!!) and then we had the annual egg toss.
This year's egg toss was done off Mimi and Grandpa's deck and it is hard to say who had more fun. Uncle Andy and Uncle Pete got really into it and Uncle Andy even brought out his golf club to hit the eggs with. The kids were all giggles and I am sure the raccoons had a feast last night!
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
