Easter Weekend

I have no idea how to turn off this underline feature. Any tips or suggestions? I have spent about ten minutes trying to turn it off and give up.

I hope everyone had a great Easter! Ours was a tad different, but oh so good. Our friend Donna Rene came and visited. We had a great time. On Saturday we attempted to do an Easter Egg hunt with a local church we have been attending - however, we got there too late and the eggs were all gone. Instead, we explored the park. We then had lunch at one of our favorite places, and then proceeded to a new area of town that had a wonderful gelato (Italian Ice Cream) shop. Outside the gelato shop there was a park with rows of small stone walls. Daddy taught little one how to jump! Oh boy, was that fun! Here are some of the pictures from the day.

Ready, set, jump!

Playing the xylophones in the park. Little one loved this!
So did Hubs and Donna Rene! :)
Little One's first time to wade in the water - He wasn't too sure what to think about it.

We played so hard on Saturday - that on Sunday we were pretty wiped out. The original plan was that Hubs was going to fry some chicken - and we were going to pack a picnic, head to church, and then see where we could spend an afternoon outdoors. Well, the clouds came in and it was about 30 degrees cooler and damp. Little One was running a slight temp and had a cough (which meant no church anyway) and it was really too cold for him to be outside. So we just had an indoor picnic and took it very easy. It was a really nice day.

Today Donna Rene, Little One and I met Hubs for lunch at a local bar-b-que joint and then we hit the Ikea store before Donna Rene caught her plane. We had so much fun. When I dropped her off at the airport I couldn't stop crying - I didn't realize how much I miss my friends!

But, on the bright side, we have a lot of company coming in the next month - my parents one week, my sister, and then another friend will be visiting. Knowing they will be here, all at different times, helps me tremendously this evening.

I know I haven't been too consistent with my posts - I have a lot I would like to write about this week and it looks like it's going to be a pretty mellow week - so hopefully my blog will be a little more interesting! :)

Have a great week!

Looks like you had a wonderful time. I understand crying when the friends go! But looks like you have a full house coming up. Yeah!! Glad you had a good time with Donna Rene.
