Easter is the only holiday where we have to work the next day.....I think that needs to change! I remember having Easter Monday off, as a kid. What happened to that?
We started off with goodie baskets for Cam and Louise's teachers. We just put some stuff in there to help them through the day - chapstick, hand lotion, Crystal Light, mints and candy. I would have thrown some liquor in there, if I wouldn't have gotten in trouble!
Friday night, Chad and I went on a triple date, which was MUCH needed and obviously long overdue since I was USELESS on Saturday. I didn't feel bad, but I was SO TIRED. I cannot hang like I used to! Chad made some meatballs for dinner on Saturday, and we were both fast asleep by 9. #lame
Sunday morning, Cam woke up searching for his Easter basket. He was so excited to see that he got the "bubble bachine" he's been wanting! He also loved his Goggles, although he's a little skeptical since he can't breathe out of his nose!
Poor Louise didn't get a basket, but she obviously didn't care since Cam shared his bunny ears with her!
We went to church with my Dad, and they had a ton of stuff for kids: a bounce house, horses, cookie making and a piñata. Cam was not too keen on us leaving him, so Chad stayed while he rode the horse, then we got a text during cookie making that Cam was ready to come back. He actually did fairly well, in the service, but I am hoping that he stays int he preschool during future trips.
Louise did a fairly good job, too, but I am hoping to stick in her in the baby room next time! There was just SO MUCH going on this time that I didn't even attempt to try that!
After church, we drove to Kittery for lunch at Robert's. This is the best family picture we got:
We got some oysters, brussel sprouts, haddock and steak. Louise loved the fries, of course, and Cam chowed on some mac & cheese with ketchup. A few glasses of wine may have been consumed, too, since Cam decided to be a little sh*t...he didn't even have that much sugar, but he was WOUND UP.
Thankfully, both kids fell asleep on the way home, and when they woke up, they had some new toys from LouLou!
It was such a great weekend, and we think that spring is finally here to stay.
Oh yeah, Louise turned TEN months on Sunday! Time to get that party planning in motion!
