March 24, 2018 | This is the year we did ALL THE EGG THINGS — I mean, this particular day E was able to hunt eggs TWICE! I think D’s company egg-hunt really brought out the competitive side of hunting, because despite the cold there were tons of people out there. We arrived just minutes before the start, which worked out well because that meant no line to see the Easter Bunny (quick hug and a photo). We ran around the circle of people, and strained to hear “GO!” before we just let her start running. Pure, hilarious pandemonium!
Once that was complete, we had a little time at home before our friends’ annual kid-hunt — which is our favorite because, ya know, FRIENDS. E is getting old enough that we can just let her play, which means lots of chat-time. L is so good at planning this event — she made sure there was a challenging golden egg for each kid, and some fun little prizes to boot! There was pizza, and cartoons, and beer. It’s awesome — and would have been even better if KSU won their BBall game. I believe we stayed until late into the night?? OOops!
March 20, 2018 | We knew we wanted to get E involved in some REAL swim lessons — all of our Summer lake-time makes this a big priority. After looking at some really expensive options, I noticed a new place going in near our Target, and immediately called/got into their schedule. I am amazed how easily she just goes in ready to do whatever is going to happen…barely even looked back at us! Coach Anna is braver than I (being in charge of four toddlers that can’t swim inside a pool), but we can already see her learning some great things. It’s pretty cool!
March 11, 2018 | I think March is for doing ALL THE THINGS before there’s a newborn in the house! Since May 20th isn’t too far away, we are enjoying how easy it is to get out-&-about with one fairly independent child. Dave hadn’t been to Wonderscope yet, so why not journey out there! We learned that the place is fairly “messy” after a weekend of kiddos PLUS the end of the day, but E didn’t seem to mind at all. After lots of museum-fun, there was a duck-race happening literally across the parking lot that we walked over to. We may have missed 2 of the 3 races, but it didn’t matter a bit because E got to throw the non-winning ducks into the racing water all she wanted…and even brought home a duck (that has become a permanent part of the bath-toy-gang)!
