We had a nice Easter this year. Adrian’s Family came over for breakfast and then the girls had their egg hunt. They were very anxious to find their eggs and were so excited when they were filled with small ponies.
After the egg hunt, Adrian and the girls set up the tent. Adrian and Jillian will be going on a camping trip next weekend, so they wanted to make sure the tent had all of it’s parts. The girls had so much fun playing in the tent!
Later that afternoon we went to our neighbor’s house for a pool party and then Easter Dinner. Claire loved the pool! It was like being in a giant bathtub. Jillian did well in the water, however it wasn’t until Adrian got in the pool that she started to swim again. Olivia is NOT a water baby… she refused to go past the steps and did not want anyone to splash her. Dinner was delicious and we were in good company.
After dinner we went home and the girls enjoyed playing with their Easter baskets and pony prizes.
My mom is awesome and rented a beach house for a week during our Spring Break. It was right on the sand! It was amazing being able to wake up and see the ocean. The girls went straight outside after breakfast every morning.
Claire was in absolute heaven! This was definitely her element. She was crawling all over the sand… tasting everything. She was such a happy baby while we were there, even though she had a slight cold.
The week we were there was absolutely beautiful, the weather was perfect for the first few days. It got a little colder on Wednesday but by the end of the week it was still nice outside.
On Saturday we walked to the pier in the next city over… 8.9 miles round trip… my feet were in pain later that day! It was nice though, Claire and I walked it with my parents and Adrian took the girls via bikes. We had breakfast near the pier and then headed back to the house.
It was such a relaxing week, I didn’t check my work E-mail once and it felt GOOD! I hope we can rent it again in the summer!!
The girls and I took a trip to Sea World during our Spring Break. Olivia fell asleep as soon as we arrived, so our options were very limited. I was able to take the stroller through the sea turtle exhibit and the penguin exhibit. Claire was fascinated by the turtles. Olivia woke up and we revisited the penguins and then left. FOr going by myself with the girls, I consider it a success, haha even though we didn’t do much. Afterwards we met up with Breanna for some ice cream cookie sandwiches. YUM!
This year we didn’t do anything too special for Adrian. My parents took the big girls to big bear for the weekend, so that was a great gift! We then had Adrian’s mom babysit on Sunday so we could go to Adrian’s favorite place, The Boiling Crab. Afterwards we stopped off at a ice cream parlor Adrian went to as a child. YUM, I wish it were closer to our house! On his actual birthday (Monday) we made tacos and lemon cake. I felt bad not planning any thing else for Adrian but he wasn’t feeling the greatest so small worked out best! We’ll try to go bigger next year.
