Easter and Other Pics

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We did. We started our celebration off Friday and Saturday, since Grammy and Pa came to our house. We had the ever wonderful traditional Mexican feast with enchiladas and tacos. SO YUMMY! On Sunday we headed over to Holt to visit with Nana and Papa and had another delicious meal with them, Gram and Aunt Evie. Here are some pictures.

On the way home from Nana's, the girls finally tuckered out (me too). Lilly had taken her shoes and socks off so I snapped a picture of her cute toes that Grammy painted.

Lauren and Lilly at their best! :)

After Easter dinner, we walked to a school very close to Nana's house to play on all of their awesome playground equipment. I had the greatest time on the slides! Loved it! I think the girls enjoyed it too!
(I swear we fixed Lauren's hat not too long after this!)

This slide was wicked! Look how Lilly is about to fly off the side!
Ready, set, go!
Mama and Lilly on the twisty slide!

She is saying, "What's that?" It was an airplane. She knew it but that is how she draws our attention to it.

I found this at a resale shop. It is brand new. It isn't completely taped together, yet, but you get the idea. I bought two boxes for $30 each. Normally they sell for $99 a box at Yeah! Lauren loves her new princess rug!

Who's your tiger! That is right, Curtis Granderson! I just wish it was him on the TV, too. Go Tigers!
Last week we finally had a play date at my cousin Rachel's house. It took us way too long to get together. We had a great time!

Pop Goes the Blake! (He is wearing the tie I made for him.)

And finally, today was a rough day. I bundle the girls up and took them to play at Bicentennial Park in Grand Blanc. We love this park. We weren't even there 5 minutes when Lauren fell off the steps climbing up to the slides and hurt her arm. I was so upset! I saw her laying there with her arm in a crazy position and I thought we would have to go directly to the ER. Lilly was mad that we had to leave but neither Lauren or I felt like staying. I moved her arm around and she could bend it at the elbow and wrist so I figured it probably wasn't broken. I decided to take her home and just watch it for awhile. She wasn't using it at all. She wasn't crying but she wouldn't eat or play or even smile. Once the Motrin kicked in, she was much better. Grammy ran down in case I had to take her to the ER but she seems to be doing alright now. I can't believe this happened. It just so happened that there were two other moms with their kids at the park. The one mom had a boy younger than Lilly and he, too, was bundled up. The other three boys were not dressed for the weather. The youngest was probably almost 2 and crying because he was cold. Where was their mom? Sitting in her warm car doing her nails! And MY DAUGHTER IS THE ONE THAT GETS HURT! I watch them like hawks and try to keep them safe but "phone it in" mom does nothing to keep her kids safe! Isn't that how it goes? I'm just relieved that Lauren is okay. I know we have some warm days coming up so we will have to give the park another go...maybe.

How is Lauren feeling now? It looks like you had a nice Easter. And I just LOVE the girls coats, they are so cute! :)
