Today was a beautiful weather day. It was supposed to be in the 70s but my car thermometer said 86. That's awesome considering we can still get SNOW in Massachusetts in April. So, we enjoyed ourselves.
We took a walk around the neighborhood - Alexis strolled and Jessica rode her tricycle (but it vibrates too much for 1.2 miles and she has to get on and off several times).
Then we went to Methuen's Easter Egg Hunt. There was one set up for the Preschoolers/Kindergarteners. It was great fun. Jessica and Alexis picked up about 4 eggs before all of the eggs were all gone. Alexis and I made a bee-line to the Methuen Mayor who put 6 more eggs into the basket! The Methuen Mayor actually lives in our neighborhood. He was impressed with Alexis' walking with her walker! Hopefully when we go Trick-or-Treating this year for Halloween, she'll be able to use her walker. (that's a 1.2 mile loop).....After the Easter Egg Hunt, we had a brief picnic/snack at the park then came home for real lunch.
After lunch, the kids ran around outside and then Jessica was exhausted and took a nap. I went out for errands and got a lot accomplished. Matt stayed at home with the always-pleasant kids. :-)
In other news, I went to Alexis' school for the whole day yesterday -- it was so exhausting. They made us do a loop around the TRACK for gym class. Ok, they didn't make us, but we did it!! Alexis is doing an awesome job pushing her walker and keeping up with it. She's not great steering, but she also gets really distracted people or thing-watching. She had PT, OT, and cooking yesterday. She did great in PT and OT and then tried to sleep in cooking. I helped her taste-test her cooking. Yum! Yum! After cooking, she had an impromptu dance party before going home with mommy. All-in-all, a great day! We skipped Friday after school PT on Friday, good thing, I got to go to bed early!
Tomorrow is Easter and we've already gotten the kids in bed so that we can all get up for 7:30 service. Then we'll get to go to breakfast, yum yum. And then nothing scheduled tomorrow... maybe some naps :-)
Enjoy the weekend and if you're in New England, enjoy the beautiful weather!
