This was a great holiday for us. We had so much fun with our family this weekend. We got to see both sides all in one weekend, which doesn't happen too often. We had egg hunts with both sets of cousins and Emily really got it this year. It was so funny to watch Emily running around picking up eggs. Most kids would yell "I found one", Emily though kept yelling the color of each egg, "Purple!" she would yell as she found a purple egg in the grass. She did a pretty good job competing with the older cousins too. She is enjoying the candy, toy and books she got in her baskets. Will had fun also, he found a couple eggs too and played with them for hours.
Although a great weekend, we had some difficulty with sleeping. Traveling with a 9 month old is not fun. Sometimes I wonder, why do we spend so much time and money in buying and dragging around a pack and play when the kid hates it. He ended up spending most of the night in the bed with us, but since he is not used to that, he would wake up and cry every time we would move. It turned out to be a long and difficult night and we got only a couple hours of sleep.
On the way home from Easter we had our first fast food in 40 days since we gave it up for lent. We had to stop at a McDonald's on the way home to get something to eat. I knew when we gave it up that when we came back to fast food it would be different. Really, it was terrible tasting. I can't imagine why I would choose to eat that anymore. So I think I am saying so long to fast food forever!
