Easter Day

When the Grands got up from their naps, Mommy and Daddy headed over to our place.  We had an egg hunt (Uncle Rob...Nana did a poor job of hiding them because they found them way too fast), dinner and everyone left on a sugar high. 








I decided to down size a bit with my bunny collection and allowed each Grand to pick one bunny to take home (removing the one my Aunt Rita gave me, the one my mother had sitting on her bed and the one my honey gave me) and, while the boys seem to have no problem selecting one of the bunnies, Leighton debated long and hard before selecting the softest one of all.

Today she and I headed to the Tarpon Springs Library for Toddler Time and had a wonderful morning...lots of us grandmothers with toddlers...almost more than moms.  Interesting.  I think there needs to be some Grandmother and Toddler groups not just Moms and Tots...we'd be the GOTS!

Sat. Egg Hunt and play ground

Last year, Kristen and I took the little kids to Tarpon Springs' Egg Hunt at the sports center and were so impressed by how the hunt was run.  The kids are all divided by ages so even our little guys and girly got a ton of eggs.  The plastic eggs have either candy or a prize in them...we got all candy, which I am sure, Mommy rationed out.  Yesterday was the egg hunt so off we went again.










And then it was off to the bounce house.  Little girl was a bit too little so she stayed with us while the boys had a blast.







Our last stop of the morning was the amazing playground at the sports center.  They were all too little last year for the huge playground but, after a year of gymnastics each, the boys threw themselves into the fun.  Leighton went swinging with her Mommy...maybe next year for her.




After their naps today, the Grands and their parents will be coming over for our Easter dinner and egg hunt.  Sure hope they like the things the Easter Bunny dropped off for them here. 
Hope your Easter is a lovely one.

Good (no make that GREAT) Friday

Although the twins did not have school today, both their sister and their mommy did so we had a play day with our guys.  We had breakfast at their house (and, of course, Papa fixed eggs...pronounced exxxxxxxxgs) and then it was off to Leighton's school and on to our house.

While Papa got the fixings ready for dying Easter eggs, the boys and I watched Cinderella...no gender discrimination here! And who doesn't love the mice? Then it was on to the egg dying.








Then it was on to other things...like helping Papa figure out the Brio train track.  It said 3years +, Papa!

After the boys' lunch (at their request: hot dogs, a few potato chips, baked beans, orange slices and lots of ketchup ) it was off to their house where all 3 of the guys had a nice nap.  Nana went to pick up Leighton and then Mommy came home from work. 

I can't imagine a better way to spend Great Friday.

How does your garden grow?

Our lower lawn furniture was rusting through so we ordered some eucalypti pieces.  It took us one day to put together the chair and  two days to put together the bench with the pop up table.  But, here it is and we are uber happy.



And we are waiting for the cushions to be delivered soon.  We toasted our new lower lawn look!
