Well, it's been some weeks since I've updated the blog. Oops. So much for keeping up on it! Life just gets so busy at times.

Anyway, we had a great Easter! We started the weekend off by going to Baby Animal days with Liz and Aiden. Jordan was working, so it was just me and the two kidos. Abby was with her daddy Cam, so it was just the three kidos. It was great fun. We were there for nearly 4 hours and enjoyed our time in the sun.

Sarah enjoyed petting and feeding the animals. The donkey, which was much smaller than I thought a normal donkey should be, was very gentle with the kids and love being fed. Sarah enjoyed it as well. Daniel just looked on and that was good enough for him. Perhaps next year he'll be a little more interactive with the animals--but maybe then they'll be running away from him, hehe.

We were there so long, we stopped and enjoyed some lunch. The kids enjoyed their corn dog and fries while I enjoyed water and diet soda.

We also went and saw the baby bear cubs there. We waited in a long line for 45 minutes to walk past the bear cubs, but it was worth the wait. They were so cute! Daniel enjoyed them and Sarah wanted to pet them. But they weren't meant to be touched and handled too much by strangers. After all, they are bears.

Then we had Easter. Jordan had to go into work, so he missed the kids finding their baskets. But I enjoyed it! They were so adorable. Sarah was so excited she woke up at 6:30am and began searching without me! I got out of bed and told her to count to 90 and I'd be ready to help her search. The Easter Bunny was sneaky and hid her basket in the coat closet. She was so excited to see her basket. Her face tells it all :o)

Daniel woke up later than Sarah did. But he enjoyed searching for his basket. Daisy kept trying to eat his treats, but Daniel was protective of his goods and held his own against the dog. Poor Daisy, nobody feeds least human food and the good stuff. Daniel loved his Peeps and Nilla Waffers. He liked his movie, Winnie the Pooh, too, but is a little young still. He'll grow into it.

After church we went to Nana and Bompa's for Easter Dinner. After dinner we went on an Easter Egg hunt with the kids. It was great fun. Daniel took position on daddy's shoulders and Sarah was bouncing around everywhere searching for the clues which would lead them to their baskets. So cute!

All in all, Easter weekend was great. The weather was awesome too. I couldn't believe how warm it was. Now I've gotten spring fever and so do the kids. Daniel only wants to play outside and he never wants to be strapped into his car seat knowing how much fun he can have outside.

It's kind of nice, though. I pulled out a stroller for him the other day and he pushed it up and down the driveway for an hour while I worked in the yard. It was so adorable and cute! He's a little stinker though, and likes to run for the road. He's getting better. Good thing we don't live in a high traffic area.

Oh, before I forget to mention it, the other day Sarah was so excited for daddy to come because she wanted to "slow dance" with him. She dolled herself up and put bows all over in her hair. When daddy got home Sarah was all ready to dance with him. But of course there were rules. Sarah said they could only dance on the blanket, not the carpet. So they stayed on the blanket and danced. Daniel had to join in too, so soon instead of dancing they were playing ring-around-the-rosies. It was so adorable. Sarah loves her daddy and so does Daniel.
