Our annual egg hunt at Shelmerdines

4/17/2017







Happy Easter! Our weekend was fun and chocolate filled, although I was battling a terrible cold that seems to be never-ending. I couldn't miss our annual egg hunt at shelmerdines, and seeing the little tiger and bunny hop around collecting eggs almost made me forget about my stuffy nose.

Poppy told us in advance that she was not going to be scared of the Easter bunny this year, and she was mostly correct. She happily gave the bunny a hug, but when asked to pose for a picture she insisted I come along too. It's hard to believe that next year we will have three little bunnies of our own!!

Speaking of bunnies... on Sunday morning we were lying in bed, trying to peel open our eyes before the egg hunt started. It wasn't that early - Soren woke us up around 6:20 begging us to get out of bed. Anyways, as we were lying there Tyler suggested he make breakfast, and jokingly suggested rabbit bacon. Ha. The kids translated that later into "Daddy said he was going to KILL the Easter bunny and make bacon!!!" I have a feeling that will be the dad joke that lives on until the kids are in university.

We have a short week ahead, as Tyler and I are escaping on a little getaway next weekend. The kids are looking forward to staying with their grandparents, and I am looking forward to a relaxing plane ride with a hot coffee and a magazine. And then exploring a new city... one of my favourite things to do. Any must-see recommendations for Portland, Oregon? I keep seeing gorgeous pictures of the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest, but I'm not sure we have time to go. I'm also really excited to check out the World's Largest Independent Bookstore, again with hot coffee. The anticipation of a trip is always half the fun!
