Easter came and went and our poor little hard boiled eggs never got the lively coat of color they deserved. But alas, there is always next year, or next Tuesday for decorating. But, we did go with our friends on an egg hunt at their church the Saturday before Easter. It was such a blustery day that the days events were held inside. Gosh, Devon had such a great time once we got him off of the little kid chairs in the preschool. He was totally understanding the finding eggs but the treasures inside were a little more of a mystery. That might have been our fault since we only let him have one small candy bar.
They also had a bunch of games for the kids to play after the egg hunt. Luckily our friend Nathan was manning one of the booths. Of course, Devon was more interested in the music player than the game.
And the bunny pic...with only Izzy! Devon was just wanting to look at the big furry creature!
We decided to take the kids to the finest dining we could think of...McDonalds of course! After my initial refusal to take them there, I was swayed by the indoor playground argument. We ordered our happy meals and got our high chair. Devon was sooooo excited to have hamburgers that he has seen in his "meetball" movie. But, he was more excited to drink milk at dinner with a straw! That mixed with apples with dinner, it was truly heaven!
Isabelle was doing great as well. But, when it comes to food, she LOVES everything and anything! So that was no surprise! So, after our dinner, we apologized to the staff for the sprinkling of food all over the ground and made our way over to the play gym. We were fully disappointed! YIKES! First off, it was for 3 year olds and up. And it was totally, fully enclosed for only kids. So we could not really help him up things. So, we will need to wait another year or so before we attempt that again on a rainy day.
At the play area I was hit with the realization that I will not be able to protect my babies from every single kid out there. It kind of made me sad.
With Isabelle on the verge of walking, we are slowly taking down all of the baby things that were out for her. Devon wanted one last jump in the jumperoo before it made its way to the basement. Boy or boy...what a couple of years difference makes!
This last week has been...well, tough! On Tuesday of last week, I got strep throat and it was bad. Like, wishing for death bad. After going to the doctor and getting the correct meds, I was on the slow, slow path to feeling better. Unfortuntaly, on Friday I noticed that little man Devon was not moving his head fully and he had a bit of a swollen lymph node. So, off to the pediatrician he and Scott went. Well, of course, he had strep as well. But, we caught it really early and he was just so happy that he had extra medicine every day. (I know my kid is a medicine loving weirdo!)
Sadly, on a low note, Scott and Devon were involved in an accident last Friday on the way home from. Happily, no one was hurt in the accident. Scott was on his way home from the doctor's office with Devon when it happened.
Take a look at the damage! I still can't believe they TOTALED our car! Like, they wrote us a check and said have a nice day! WOW! I am still in shock. But, we happily bought a new car, a better car. I have to look on the bright side since we literally made our last car payment about 3 months ago.
Have a great rest of the week!!!
