Easter Weekend

Friday evening we started our Easter activities.  After the science museum we headed home and we tried to do a little science experiment.  I’ve been wanting to make crystals with the kids and I saw a cute one with an Easter egg.  We tried it but it didn’t work.  Days later and we don’t have any crystals!  Oh well, we tried.  After dinner we dyed Easter eggs and those did well.  The kids did most of it themselves and it wasn’t a disaster!  We are making progress!

Saturday morning I was able to get out and go to Kohls and then I did some shopping for our Easter dinner.  I came and cooked for a couple hours.  The kids helped me off and on a little bit.  Mimo showed up in the afternoon to watch the kids for the evening.  Drew and I went to the Bruce Springsteen concert Saturday night in Charlotte with Katie and Kris.  Besides getting home late, we had a great time.  It was my first time seeing the Boss in concert and probably Drew’s 7th or 8th. 

After about 5 hours of sleep, we were up early hiding Easter eggs and setting out Easter presents.  The kids were up early and ready to get those eggs.

Lindy had a very piratey Easter.  I had found pirate Easter eggs and had to get them for her.  Will had sports eggs again.  They had fun finding eggs and then they found their presents.  I made Will bunny pancakes but Lindy didn’t want any.  We got ready and got some pictures and headed to church.  After church we came home for lunch with Mimo, Aunt Anna, Brian, and my parents.  We had a yummy meal and a fun afternoon of Mario Kart.  It was a great day!
