Just a few thoughts about spring and upcoming summer!

This past weekend was Easter! It was a great day! It was a simple easy day with baskets, egg hunt in the living room and relaxing until dinner time. We went to Tony’s parents for dinner and the girls definitely enjoyed spending time with their grandparents.

I saw in the newspaper that rummage sales are starting and I am super excited! I absolutely love good rummage sales and hope to hit many this summer.

Today, was in the 60s which is way above what it has been since “spring” has started. I am very thankful because the girls are getting cabin fever from being cooped up all day! I have to admit I am too! We did get to enjoy this morning before the rain hit. We ate lunch out there and played on the porch.

Thinking about summer! I am pumped to get the camper all cleaned and ready to go! Camping season is coming up quickly and I want to make sure we have all that we need done and for it!! My parents were wonderful and got the girls each their own backpacks that have camping “necessities”.

Oh how I love spring and summer! So many great activities! What is your favorite thing to do in spring or summer? I would love some more great ideas!

Eggs Galore

This year I decided that we were going to try a few tricks that were on Pinterest. Which by the way is my favorite site. I absolutely am obsessed. That is an understatement … it’s an addiction! Anyways, we used kool- aid packets! Which by the way smell great and is much easier with cleaning up!! You use one packet of whatever color you want to use… and 1/3 cup water! That simple! We also have an artist in our family she is 3! She used a whisk to hold the egg which was pretty easy for her to do it on her own! Well, until she learned she can stir so fast it spills the dye all over! Here is from our night!!

We even made a “yucky” brown one! All you have to do is mix, mix, mix! Pretty much until it turns yucky!

She was sooo proud to do it all by herself!

The whisk gave her confidence!!

She was a pro!

I was going to do one!! She was saying sooo pretty momma!

Our beautiful eggs!

She enjoyed this the most I think from Easter. Well besides the egg hunt the next day! Overall we had a great time!

Next year for sure we will be using koolaid! We will try to experiment with more colors!! Can’t wait for next year!
