Friday after work, we grabbed a quick sandwich and then picked the girls up from daycare as they were having an Easter festival at the other location and we needed to pick up our children by noon. Since we had an hour to kill before going to the other center, we took a drive, got some gas and some cookies from a local bakery.
Then we headed over to the center and checked the girls in. They were not into the bounce houses which was weird since they loved them last time they went in them. We ate our cookies and waited for the egg hunt to start. The girls got really scared of the Easter bunny and wouldn't even go near him. So we didn't get a photo with the bunny again. Ugh.
The girls were not into the egg hunt much. I don't think they really knew what to do. Once they let us put them down, Sutton grabbed a few eggs and Rory had to grab some for Avery. The girls did love opening the eggs and eating all the candy. After the egg hunt, the girls played in the playground while we watched.
After the festival, we made a quick stop at the store for diapers since I forgot to grab some from daycare and then headed to my parents house to hang out and have dinner. We ended up playing in my parents backyard most of the afternoon before settling down for short ribs, rice, blistered green beans and pasta salad. Everything was sooo good and I will be making the short ribs very soon. Dinner was a huge hit for the girls.
We watched Sing while dinner was being finished and it is just sooo cute. I can totally see how adults get hooked on kids movies. I can't wait to see Finding Dory and Moana now. We left around 7:30 and headed home.
We got the girls changed and into bed before settling in to watch some Americans. We called it an early night.
Saturday morning, we went to breakfast, but I just had a large latte and a scone which I had to share with my girls since they wanted mine plus their own meal. Isn't that how it always goes?
We got home and waited for the garage guy to come over. We have had our garage door for about 4 years and never had it serviced, so we finally got it done. While the garage guys were over, I headed out to have brunch with my friends. The weather was nice, so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the day. We ended up staying at brunch for 2 1/2 hours.
After brunch, I ran to get my rings polished, cleaned and checked out. They are finally back to looking brand new. Then I headed over to the mall to look at a pair of jeans I had seen online, but wanted to try on first. The jeans fit and I even went down a size. Total win!!
I headed home and once I got back, the girls were just waking from their nap. We got them ready and headed over to my in-laws house for some takeout Mexican food and playtime with my nephew. Avery ate so much Mexican food that evening and later on we would all pay for that.
Once we got home around 8 pm, we put the girls down to bed and watched some more 13 Reasons Why. Just as we were getting ready for bed, I remembered I needed to put together the girls' Easter baskets, but then we heard a cough and a gag and knew that someone threw up. Avery threw up all her dinner and it was a TON.
We stripped her and her bed and Rory gave her a bath while I started cleaning up all the puke. I had to wash the chunks off everything before putting it in the washer and it was foul. Once I got everything cleaned up, Rory just finished Avery's bath and we got everything put back together for her to go back to sleep. But then Rory and I couldn't sleep because we were worried she would get sick again. We were not sure if she was sick, overate or the food didn't agree with her. So we stayed up until almost 3 am. I should have used this time to put together their baskets and hide eggs, but I just stayed watch on the girls.
Avery never threw up again and was happy as can be Sunday morning. But since I didn't get to anything, I had to scramble Sunday morning to get it all done. I got their baskets put together and gave them to them. We didn't hide them this year, but we will next year since they weren't into finding the eggs that much this year.
Rory headed out to get some Starbucks for us and I vacuumed since there was some remnants of throw up in the hallway. Then we gave the girls a bath and got ready ourselves.
We headed to Rory's cousins house for Easter brunch and had so much good food along with mimosas. We had a bunch of fruit, cheeses, quiche, roasted potatoes, chorizo with peppers and onions and a bunch of pastries and bagels. After brunch, we let the kids all play together and while we all talked.
We left around 12:20 and headed home to put the girls down for a nap. They slept for two hours while I did more chores in the house and Rory did some outside the house. I also snuck in an episode of 13 Reasons Why.
After the girls got up, we got them ready and headed over to my in-laws house again. The girls were sad that Carson (my nephew) wasn't back yet, but they opened their Easter presents and started playing with them while having some snacks. And then it started raining and we knew we had to get outside for a family photo before it came down too hard.
Notice the girls house slippers
The girls played with their cousin and showed him how to use their new toys.
The girls love their new bouncy farm animals
My SIL and BIL got the girls some cleaning stuff since they love vacuuming with me.
We gave my nephew a gift and then we anxiously awaited dinner.
Walter was at Easter celebration too!
We sat down for ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, salad and my FIL's famous mustard sauce for the ham. Everything was delicious! We had apple pie and ice cream for dessert while the girls helped bathe their cousin. We got the girls in their pjs, said our goodbyes and headed home around 8 pm.
We put the girls to bed, unpacked the car and Rory fell asleep pretty fast while I watched more 13 Reasons Why.
How was your Easter weekend?
