Easter Weekend

We had such a busy weekend and I'm really behind.  First, on Friday we had a mom's group Meetup at the Cougar Mountain Zoo.  The weather was great for once and we had a great time.  It's a very small zoo so it's perfect for babies/toddlers/preschoolers.  And I had a Groupon voucher so it was pretty cheap for the three of us.  After the zoo we went to McDonald's for lunch which was a huge mistake because Olivia didn't want to leave the play area, but it was such a nice day I really wanted to be outside.  She had a total meltdown and I had to literally drag (well, carry) her out of there kicking and screaming.  It was really embarrassing.  But then we went to a park to enjoy the rest of the afternoon and all was well.

On Saturday we went to the community egg hunt.  We got there a bit late because I thought it was going to be held somewhere else, so it had already started as the girls and I were frantically running across the baseball field to where the eggs were (while Paul was parking the car).  Kayley managed to get just one egg and Olivia zero.  But a very nice gentleman noticed their empty/near empty baskets and discreetly threw down some of his eggs for the girls to "find", so they ended up with a few more, plus someone else gave them some of theirs later as well.  All in all, it wasn't really worth going.  It's always a challenge being anywhere by 10:00 and it was over so fast.  They did have a photo op with the Easter Bunny but there was a long line so we didn't bother.

The rest of Saturday was really fun, because it was the first really goregous and warm day all year.  I think it got close to 70, which felt so great compared to the high 40s/low 50s we've been having for weeks on end.  We did yardwork and played outside all afternoon, then grilled salmon and turkey burgers for dinner and sipped margaritas.

Sunday we went to church and then to Paul's parents' for Easter dinner.  The girls colored eggs and then we had another egg hunt.  This one was much more fun and lucrative for them.

Other random stuff:  I finally finished C25K last Wednesday!  Whoo-hoo!  And Olivia is also day-time potty trained like Kayley!  Kayley actually even wakes up dry most mornings, so I think we're going to start foregoing the Pull-ups at bedtime and try underwear 24/7.  Scary.

Cute pictures!
Let us know how the pull-ups go. We are daytime trained here as well, but the nights and naps are a totally different story. I'm just focusing on the daytime, then going from there! =) good luck!
