Easter Weekend... A Week Late...

We spent Easter Weekend at my parents in NH.  It was a nice break from all the craziness here in NY and MiniM.E. had a blast.

The weekend BEFORE Easter, we went to an Easter Egg Hunt in Malta... but somehow the photos never made it to the computer, so a quick flashback...





MiniM.E. and my parents (especially Gram) are inseparable... so when we're there I usually feel like I have few photo opportunities.  I expected to come home with nothing but this photo to show for our trip:
MiniM.E. got some bandages from Dr. Gram
But this time around we did lots of fun things as a family and there was plenty of time to spend with MiniM.E.

The first day we were there, we drove down to IKEA (not so fun for MiniM.E.) and stopped at the Boston Aquarium on the way back (VERY fun for MiniM.E.)
watching the seals



 We gave Gram a break (to work on Easter dinner...) and took a Mommy-Daughter trip to the Monkey Around Playground:


And Daddy met us for the weekend and we met up with C. & H. at the NH Wild day where there were lots of wild animals, and MiniM.E.'s favorite activity, fly fishing!




By far, the best part of the weekend was when Daddy and Grumpy put up the trampoline...

Sunday morning we went to church, dressed in our Easter best (after a 30 minute tantrum).

After church, we opened the Easter Basket:


visited Auntie Jen's condo to see her puppy and her kitty:

and had yet another Easter Egg Hunt:



Thanks for having us Gram & Grumpy!  We had a great weekend!!

What We've Been Up To

The weather has been beautiful lately and we've been spending as much time as possible outside.

feeding ducks at the park
petting the "puppies" with a friend at the park


all day at the playground






pumping on the swing

playing in the yard with E.

BBQ with baby O.

car trip with E.

with A. at the Peerless Pool Playground

Of course, in typical upstate New York fashion, one day it was 80 and the next it snowed... perfect weather for an Easter Egg hunt with our playgroup.

 Wednesday we left for NH and will be here through the weekend.

HAPPY EASTER!

Spring is Finally Here!

We celebrated by spending lots of time outside at Congress Park with friends on Wednesday and Thursday.  The ducks sure were happy to see us!!










Yesterday we saw some April showers and spent the day playing inside.  After two days of playing outside, MiniM.E. seemed happy to have a relaxing day.
