We started the weekend with a venture outdoor to the nearby town parade. We were skeptical because we didn't know how our girl would like it. All we know was that it was beautiful out and we wanted to do something...
She proved us wrong by having an awesome time! During the one hour parade, she was standing up off the sidewalk and dancing and clapping and waving, just all around having a good time. She called out the things she knows how to say ("bird," "bunny," "balloon") and the colors as the classic car made it way down the street ("yellow," "red," "green," "pink," and the all time favorite "blue").
On the way home, I commented on how much I enjoyed myself and meant it. The parade was low key, not too crowded and the people in attendance pleasant. We even got a bit of candy out of it though we missed the egg hunt.
On Sunday, we managed to boil some eggs and dye them, despite a very bad headache that overcame me and left me in bed for the better part of the morning. But I'm glad that we still manage to do it because it became such a memorable time. It's crazy to witness how much our girl had grown in a year, because this time last year, she barely managed to hold an egg and this year, she's intentional with the fragile thing.
And if she breaks it, it is because she wants to so that she can eat it.
Mama and Daddy has a good time decorating our own eggs as well.
