I can’t remember the last time I had such a busy, fun weekend! Plus the weather was gorgeous.
Friday was filled with running around town. Jeremy had the day off for Good Friday. I’m so glad he did. I was in search of some maternity undergarments. We went to the mall in town, and they didn’t have my size. And I needed them for Easter. So I had the bright idea of going to the Mall of America. I can be so stupid sometimes. It was a madhouse. But the lady at the maternity store was really helpful and it turns out that I needed a smaller size than I thought, so I could have just bought what I needed at the first place. Ugh. Whatever, it was done. And I’m a stronger person for surviving it.
We then headed to BFF Kirsten’s house. Funny story. I couldn’t sleep Thursday night. And I realized that Kirsten’s due date was Friday. And we didn’t have any pictures of our baby bumps together! Zero! How did we let that happen! So I frantically e-mailed her saying we had to fix that. I told her I could come over Friday. So I just prayed she didn’t have her baby in that time.
It was a good thing I made the trip over there, because she had her little girl the next afternoon! I like to think she waited until we got the picture before she would make her appearance.
We finished out the day with dinner and more shopping.
I spent the evening filling Easter eggs for the hunt I was doing for the kids the next day. I might have gone a little overboard…
Miraculously, most of the candy made it into the eggs.
Saturday afternoon we went over to my parents’ house to celebrate Easter. And I took a bunch of pictures with my actual camera. Win!
We had a great time looking hunting for eggs. And then coloring some eggs.
That night we had our book club meeting. I didn’t finish the book this month. Whoops! It was still fun to have dinner and catch up with friends. Maybe I can finish next month’s book!
Easter Sunday was busy fun! Jeremy was playing at the 12:00 church service and he had to leave a couple of hours early to rehearse. So I was in charge of getting Avery and myself ready. It’s usually fine, but an hour plus process.
Church was good. I was overheating during the service and had to step out a couple of times. And Avery cried the whole time in the “play room.” Every time I think we are making progress with her, she takes a giant step back. How long does her separation anxiety last?
Then we headed to lunch. All 12 of us. Thankfully the hibachi place we went to was very accommodating. And delicious.
After taking a nap (glorious!) we did Easter baskets and played outside.
Avery got a chocolate bunny, new forks, and a tennis racquet! Which she swings around calling a “bat.” She loves it.
Jeremy got a bunch of grilling things in his basket. A good haul, if you ask me.
It was such a beautiful evening to spend outside. I hope we get many more like this!
I hope you all had a fantastic Easter.
I hope you come back tomorrow for a guest post on a very important topic!
