Today I spent the whole day with the McShane’s. It was such fun. We started the day dying Easter eggs – which is always an adventure with a 5, 3 and 2 year old! Only one minor incident involving a tipped cup of dye, sibling fight and tears – but all was well quickly!
Aidan’s eggs were all bold, bright colors while Finley’s were pastels and Briar hovered over ONE blue egg almost the entire time! “Is your egg ready, Briar?” “Nooope!”
After we dyed eggs, I got lots of snuggles in with Aidan (which is rare) while playing games on our iPods. Finley helped Caren make Rice Crispy treat EGGS that were delicious. She put a little bit of almond flavoring – and it make them sooo yummy! After Briar woke up from her nap, we grabbed some tacos at Taco del Sol and went to the park. It wasn’t overly warm, but the sun was out – so no complaints from us!
All-in-all it was a fabulous day with the McShane’s. It’s not very often that I spend the whole day with them. They are great kids and Caren is an awesome Mom.
Looking forward to celebrating the true meaning of Easter tomorrow. Church, easter egg hunt, good food and family. The weather is supposed to be nice, too! Looks to be a great day.
Happy Easter everyone. I hope you all have a very blessed day as we remember and honor what Jesus did for us. Love you all!
My favorite hymn:
my favorite line “when Christ shall come with shout of acclamation and take me home what joy shall fill my heart.”
