Friday was one of those days where Brooke and Harrison and I were at each other all day. They didn't listen, which made me yell, which made them listen less. There were tears from all three of us that day, so when Rob got home that night, it was a welcome reprieve. We ordered pizza and colored eggs, which went much better than the rest of our day. The kids and I had a good bedtime talk about how we were all going to do better tomorrow, and we did.
Harrison and Brooke do best when we have some type of activity planned, so we filled our Saturday with Easter fun. We woke up in the morning and headed to our church's Easter egg hunt. We even managed to get out the door in time for me to pick up coffee on the way! Going out of the house with all for kids still makes me nervous, just because the babies still take so long to eat. Getting out with all four kids for something other than a shopping trip felt HUGE! Thankfully the egg hunt lasted all of 10 minutes. We had time to hit up the park for a few and still make it home in time to feed the babies.
By early afternoon it was gorgeous outside, and the kids' Auntie had come to join us for an afternoon at the mall. We strapped on some babies and took the Easter Extravaganza by storm. Really we just went for the petting zoo. The lines to see the Easter bunny and for face painting were so long, there was no way we were waiting. We managed to do a little shopping, pet all the baby animals, work on our tans, and even get a couple balloon bunnies before heading back home. An early bedtime for the kids meant I still had plenty of time to assemble Easter baskets and prep brunch once they were asleep.
I made extra large bunch casseroles, so we had brunch twice on Sunday. Is there anything more perfect? Yes there is, but we really love brunch around here. I've eaten the same for for my last three meals, and I am not complaining one bit. We closed out our Sunday the same way we always do, with Rick and the gang. Now we're anxiously waiting to see who Negan is going to introduce Lucille to next week. If you aren't a TWD fan, sorry for the reference. ;)
I hope you all had a great Easter weekend, and that you're surviving the post holiday hangover. Hopefully with coffee. Or wine.
