What a fabulous weekend

The weeks have been long and exhausting for me lately.   I'm 8+ months pregnant lugging three kids around to dance class, story time and dr.s appointments with pretty much no patience, and aching back and constant desire to just sit and put my feet up. 

This weekend was a super special treat loaded with fun and family time.  I always get excited for the weekends because the extra help of my husband being home.  We woke up Saturday with no plan for the day.  Slowly got ready for the day with showers (not a quick thing with 5 people)  then we headed to the Lake Worth Easter Egg hunt.  It was a very poorly planned/ organized set up with circles fenced off for different age groups and huge lines.  They let a few kids in at a time and let them dig through the hay for 30 seconds to look for eggs.  Zoey found one egg and was nice enough to share her candy with Abby who found none.  Cherry found two eggs, but wasn't able to eat the inappropriate age candy inside.  As soon as Cherry finished her hunt, we RAN to the car to escape the looming rain clouds in just enough time to not get completely soaked. 

A quick discussion of what we wanted to eat for lunch took us driving down A1A to Delray Beach to eat at a trendy burger joint, Burger-Fi.  Now I've been here once before and loved it.  Saturday, however, it was jam packed with beach goers and our burgers were obviously thrown together just to get them out the door.  A little disappointing, but I mean, it was a burger and fries, so it wasn't all bad.  We journeyed back north up A1A, looking at the mansions and ocean and ended up at City Place to go to the book store.  We are in search of books about Airplanes to prep the girls for their first airplane ride this summer (which they are already having anxiety about).  Found a cut Richard Scarry book about the airport and picked up a hand full of other new books including Micky Mouse, My Little Pony, Thor and Captain America.  A quick ride on the little Choo Choo Train was followed by delicious ice cream from Sloan's.  We walked City Place a little longer and had a wonderful performance put on by the kids.  Still not sure where they picked this up from, but it was awesome.

 Realized it was past diner time, so we headed home, had some cereal for diner, read our new books and off to bed.  For a day with no plans, it ended up being one of the most fun days we've had in a long time.

Sunday ended up being just as enjoyable, filled with Easter Egg hunts, new My Little Pony Toys from the Easter Bunny, Mamie and Granddaddy, Waffles with Icecream and bacon for our "Easter Dinner" and fun in the kiddie pool.  The weather was spectacular, we even turned off the AC and opened the sliders for a bit. 

We only have a few more weekends of our current family dynamic before Baby Jasper enters the world and I truly hope they are as magical as this weekend!
