Weekend Snapshots and Menu Plan

Once again, our weekend was packed!

On Saturday morning, we went to our friend's house for egg dying and an egg hunt. The egg hunt was indoors, because it was pouring out. Despite the rain, the kids had a blast, and we had fun talking to our friends!

Immediately after that, we went to my nephew's 6th birthday party, where the kids played laser tag. Lexie was a bit too young, so she colored with Grant, while I snapped some pictures for my sister.

After the party, we came home, had some dinner, and then our friends came over for the evening.

The kids enjoyed a lazy morning. It was a nice break after our jam-packed Friday and Saturday!

We made some brunch, and then visited Grant's family. Grant and I left for a bit to do some Easter shopping, while his mom and Nannie kept the kids occupied.

Back home, Grant and Dylan played Wii, while Lexie and I cooked dinner.

The day ended quickly for our kids. They were both happy to go to bed!

  3. I am so intrigued about the floor where you had that easter egg hunt. Is that round mosaic tiles, or is carpet? That's so cool.

    Sounds like another busy, but fun weekend. We had a lot going on too. I'm exhausted today.
