Recent happenings

This week has been a pretty busy one. On Wednesday we had playdate as usual and decided to make it easter themed. The kids dyed eggs and made marshmallow rabbits. It was a lot of fun for the older kids but Logan for sure did not get what he was supposed to be doing. I started to give Logan an egg and a white crayon to draw on it with and right when I gave him the egg he smashed it on the table. So I made two for him and he just colored on paper, which was fine enough for him. I am very excited for next year when he will start to understand all of this holiday fun. After we dyed eggs we ate some lunch and Logan was so tired he fell asleep while eating his pizza. It was so cute and I got video of it but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to put video on my blog. So you will just have to picture it in your heads. Just about twenty five minutes before Leslie and Annie had to leave the kids made bunnies out of paper and marshmallows. We didn't have time to color the paper first which would have made them cuter but they still turned out very cute.

On Thursday I watched my neice Leah all day. I am the kind of person who cannot stay home all day so I decided we would go to the aquarium. We picked up my sister in law, Elana and her son Layne to go with us. When we got there it was so crowded. As we were looking for a parking space we were trying to figure out why it was so crowded. Then it clicked...Spring Break. What a time for us to decide to go. It was packed!! We still looked at mostly everything but its a good thing we have annual passes so that we can go back when school is back in session. The kids did have fun though.

And our Easter Bunny came a little early. Growing up the Easter Bunny always came Friday night/Saturday morning. We would wake up Saturday morning and our baskets would be filled. He figured Saturday was a day for Easter fun and Sunday was a day for the real reason for Easter. And that is how we decided to do Easter as well. So since Logan is asleep the Easter Bunny came and Logan will find his basket in the morning. This year we went low key and got him a new swimsuit and rashguard and some new sandals. We are not big candy eaters at our house so the Easter Bunny only brought a little which is perfect. For our fun Easter Saturday we are going with my family bowling and it should be a lot of fun!!

Leslie, Layne, Logan, and Annie dying eggs. Well Logan is just coloring.

Leah and Logan at the aquarium.

All of the kids looking at the stingrays. Everytime I go i try to be brave and touch them, but i just can't bring myself to do it!! I am a major wuss!

Logan's cute giraffe Easter basket. I am trying to instill my love of giraffes on him. He seems to like elephants more though. I guess I need to work a little harder.

All of the fun stuff the Easter Bunny brought for Logan!

I love how creative you guys are with your play dates. They look so fun and that giraffe easter basket is so cute. We celebrate Easter on Saturday too. It is just better that way.
