Long Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend.

It started on Friday. We took Charla to see Rio. I told her we were going to see a really big TV. When we walked into the lobby she looked around and asked me where the TV was. I tried to time things so we got there after the previews started so we would only have  a couple minutes before the movie started. As we walked  in, the previews were finishing up. I asked her if she was ready to see the big TV.  When she saw it, her eyes got HUGE! She was mesmerized. The movie was super cute and held her attention the entire time. The bucket of popcorn she ate helped a bit too I think. All in all, a big success.

Saturday we didn’t have anything planned. The weather was okay, it was in the low 50’s but cloudy and pretty windy. We got outside in the morning for a little bit. Tim planted a bunch of flowers while Charla and I colored with chalk, blew bubbles and swung. We took her to the park in the afternoon so she could fly her kite and then dyed eggs after dinner. The weekend could have ended right there and it would have been a great time. It was fun, relaxing and Charla was in a good mood pretty much the entire time. There are some weekends I end up counting down the hours to Monday, this was definitely not one of them!

When Charla woke up Easter morning she got to look for her Easter basket. Of course the bunny came and brought her all sorts of little things. She’s not a fan of chocolate, so Easter shopping was kind of challenging. It seems like 99% of Easter candy has some form of chocolate in it! The two chocolate items she likes are M&M’s and Reeses Peanut Butter cups. So, she got those, jelly beans and a push pop. The she got a flower snap bracelet, two little nail polishes, and headbands. Unfortunately, the headbands hurt her head. I was disappointed because she looks so cute in them and they get her hair off her face.

Her hair……bit of a tangent here. It is so thin and flyaway. It’s getting longer but it’s still not long enough to weigh itself down and it is multiple layers because none of it grows at the same speed. I’ve been trimming the back hoping for the sides to catch up. For awhile I was toying with the idea of cutting her bangs but Tim says absolutely not. So, her head resembles a dandelion fluff.

Anyway, now it’s Monday and time to get back to normal life. I wish every weekend could be so fun and relaxing!
