On Monday we met some friends at the park but after only an hour and a half it was way crowded and the little babies were getting tired. My friend offered to take Big Sister and Mr. Smiley to her house instead to play. What I planned on being a couple hours turned into all day and I didn't pick them up until after 6. They were in heaven! In the meantime Little Sister and I did some laundry and had some good one on one bonding time.

On Tuesday we played outside in the morning and then after Little Sister woke up we met some different friends at a different park for a couple hours. The weather couldn't have been more gorgeous so we had to spend our time outside!
Wednesday I took the kids to Art Soup because I had a couple free passes I had been holding on to. They had a blast! They have a huge craft station where they have things already put together that you can just paint and decorate. Big Sister made lots of things while Mr. Smiley took his time painting a huge shark green. The both put copious amounts of glitter on their art projects. Little Sister liked coloring with chalk and eating it. Then we met my mom and went out to lunch.

|She was very dirty all weekend|
We got home, unpacked and showered so we could hurry to my Dad's house for their Easter party. My sister and her family came into town and my step-sister and her family were there too. My Dad and step-mom had a great dinner and egg hunt planned for the kids and all were happy at the end with their results.

Sunday was Easter but since we were going to be gone over the weekend I gave the kids their Easter baskets last Saturday (we do baskets on Saturday and don't do the Easter bunny so it's no big deal). It was good because we were really able to focus on the true meaning of Easter. We went through the Resurrection Eggs with the kids and they really enjoyed that and then got ready for church. The fun didn't stop there either. Right after church we hurried to another friend's house and had an Easter dinner and another egg hunt! Then we took the kids on this huge tire swing that is in the gulch behind their house. The fun did have to end finally and about 7pm we headed home so we could get our kids to bed at a decent hour.

|It's really hard to hold 2 eggs and a basket at the same time. Of course they can't go in the basket.|
