Long weekends are just the best. Especially weekends where you don’t have much planned and almost everything is closed so you’re forced to just hang out together in the kind of warm-ish spring weather.
On Good Friday we went for a walk in Bird’s Hill Park. We were thinking that the paved paths would be all dry, but I guess they don’t clear all the paths in the winter so some still had a lot of snow on them. By the end of our hour in the park most of us had wet socks and Oliver was wet up to his knees, but everyone was happy. We were all so refreshed by spending some good, quality time out in nature.
Family selfies (Ivy’s face in the bottom corner cracks me up every time):
After the park we went home and changed our socks and shoes and then headed out for supper. The big boys taught Ivy and Oliver how to blow chocolate milk bubbles so it was a highly successful evening.
On Saturday, we did our Easter egg hunt, and then the kids had another hunt at my parents house, so the kids ate candy for breakfast and supper. Thankfully we squeezed some veggies into them at lunch time.
Sunday was another quiet day together. The sun was shining and I think it got to 12 C out. The kids were outside more than they were inside yesterday; it was amazing. They ran around the yard, “suntanned” on the deck, and jumped on the trampoline for hours. We had our first bonfire of the season, too. Unfortunately we were out of marshmallows for roasting, but what can ya do.
It was such a great long weekend. I’m so thankful for my amazing family and time we spend together.
