We had a relatively busy weekend.  The kids have both been waking pretty early these days, so it started bright and early on Saturday morning.

I signed Olivia up for one of those free projects at Home Depot.  I knew it would interfere with Logan's nap, so I sent Michael and Olivia on a little date.
They hit up Dunkin Donuts first, which of course Olivia LOVED.

Then they headed to Home Depot to make a little planter.

While they were away, Logan and I played for a bit. Then when he went down for nap at 9, I got to cleaning.  It's rare to clean without at least one kid in the way.  I pretty much have to do things like the kitchen floor or dishes when Logan is napping.  So that was my fun morning. :)

Her finished project

Logan woke up minutes before they got home.  So they all played while I finished up what I was doing.  By then it was time for lunch. After lunch we dyed eggs!

Putting vinegar in all the little cups

I had put Logan down after lunch, but he was interested in what was going on. So he hung out in his high chair for a little bit and watched.  Then it was time for nap (again!).

Decorating the eggs

Which one to choose...

Our finished product!

After nap we headed to an egg hunt.  Our city had one, but it was earlier in the day.  I had heard mixed reviews about it, so we decided to attend a local church one instead.

They had multiple inflatables for free.  Olivia did this slide multiple times.  She also took a turn in a bounce house.

They had two identical petting zoos, and they even gave out free food.

Olivia loved it!

Logan clung to Michael for dear life.  Are you catching a theme with this kid? ;)

It was finally time for the Easter Egg hunt.  Unfortunately, it didn't go quite as well as the rest of the day. There were 25,000 eggs, but they didn't have it separated by age.  And what I've learned over the last few years is that this is pretty necessary for us.  So Michael went out with her, but he said the big kids were just too quick.  And even though the directors were saying to only get about 10 to 15 each, a lot of kids had baskets overflowing.  At one point he just had to grab a few eggs for Olivia because he was worried that she wasn't going to end up with any.

After it was all over, a few girls who had more than their share gave some of their eggs to Olivia.  (Only to open them in the car and find that each egg had a tiny little thing in it.  Most had a tootsie roll, but some had one tiny little craft jewel.  I get that they had 25,000 eggs, but what in the world am I suppose to do with a tiny craft jewel?  Weird!)

Olivia was pleased with the whole thing.  She didn't really care how she got the eggs... just that she got some. :)

We ended our busy day by going out to dinner with a gift card from Christmas.  It was a great day!
