{week + end rewind}

Happy Tuesday. I was thankful for an extra day off yesterday with my 2 hooligans even if Ryder was a stage 5 clinger all afternoon and Delainey only spoke in "whine", Holy moly. Annnyways!
We had a great week and weekend - rewinding back.  
The usual park stops and ravine walks...Delainey loves "walking her dog Ryder" he plays along most of the time.

Some days were a little rainy. Note: Ryder needs an umbrella. Having to walk under your sisters is not fun.

But very cute on my end. :)

Thursday Delainey had gymnastics so Ma, Pa & Nana all came to watch.

From there the kids and I headed back to Nana's for lunch and that tricky Easter bunny made an early stop at her place while we at gymnastics. The kids were thrilled of course.

Ryder proved you can eat a chocolate with the foil on it and still enjoy it.

We played with eggs while Ryder napped. Hiding eggs might be one of her favorite activities!

A rainy, snowy walk with lots of worms = tons of fun! Delainey was instructing Ry to pick them up and put them in a pile to make a worm family or she would pick them up and hand them to him. Good thing they love washing their hands. After every walk now we walk in the door and Ry yells "hans" and runs to the washroom!

Mom and Dad came over to have dinner with the kids so Justin could come to my Surf class again! :) I do love having him there. And then we snuck to the watering hole for appies afterwards.

Friday was a holiday and Justin was home so I went to Telara's Hot Flow class in the morning and loved it. I have said hot yoga isn't my favorite workout but I would definitely go to this class again. The kids and I got groceries after that while Justin and Brian worked on their bikes.
After naps the kids went to Ma & Pa's for a sleepover! {YAY for Ma & Pa being home from their trip.}
As always the kids had fun and did lots and lots of activities!

Justin and I went to Trolley 5 for dinner and it was delicious. It's a new-er craft brewery in Calgary so we tried a few different beers and had a great meal. I learned I do not like IPAs at all. ick.

We spotted this wall on the way home and naturally Justin just knew he was to take my photo with it. It's near our hair salon so you bet I am stopping to get a photo of Delainey with it after our appointment on Sunday. I wish it was in our backyard. :)

Saturday morning my cousin Ashley stopped by with little Sawyer so we could {finally} meet him! Mom and Dad brought the kids back then too so they could visit and Jolie & Nana came as well. He is the sweetest and I got a good snuggle in but as always can't wait until the next. Ryder was pretty cute with him too.

I had some excellent helpers to make carrot cake for our Easter dinner on Sunday.

Delainey was VERY excited that the Easter bunny arrived and was so cute telling Ryder what to do before she scurried off to find eggs.

The Easter bunny also left treasure hunt clues to find a few goodies.

She really wanted to leave the Easter bunny a treat - the aftermath. 

Delainey and I finished the carrot cake while Ryder napped.

More egg play before bath time. And then I made the mistake of letting them take these in the bath and they are no longer metallic! Whoops.

I got a few photos of Ryder in his new floral outfit from a little shop in the Comox Valley - she asked if Ryder would show off a floral outfit and I think he can totally pull it off! :)

Playing with their new Boogie Boards from the Easter bunny. 

All ready for Easter dinner #2. We had a delicious dinner and family night with Ma, Pa, Auntie Jolie, Uncle Jeff and Nana. And you guessed it - another egg hunt!

I was off yesterday as well so we hit up the library for new books and probably their favorite thing is playing eye spy with this wall and just running the hallways after each other!

This outfit Delainey was wearing was hilarious. I'm pretty sure she was wearing every color and pattern. :)

We had a picnic lunch inside as it didn't warm up enough by lunch to be outside {even though Delainey insisted we try and then she lasted 3 seconds until it was too cold}! 
Thankfully by after Ryder's nap it was beautiful out. New outfits because picnics are MESSY!

Even did some biking! Justin took Ryder's seat off and put a piece of a pool noodle for a seat and it's way better for his short little legs! 

Both kids were in bed early because dinner was a gong show and Justin fell asleep on the couch not 5 minutes after that! :)

Holy moly busy weekend for you guys - but looks like it was so fun and you got up to so much! Hmmmmm, I LOVE IPA's!! The hoppier the better for me. I love that really strong hoppy bitter taste in beer. And now I am really sad thinking about how much I want a beer. hahaha

That's a busy weekend! Liam has been asking for an umbrella so my mission this spring is to find him one. I'm not a fan of IPA's either, but I'll still drink them because I can usually never turn down beer :p

Yesterday A started the whine and I told her not to make me regret keeping her home versus going to dayhome and that shut her right up haha. Three year olds ;)
Love that wall!
Our library was closed yesterday - so lame!
Easter hunts are the best! I wanted to do clues etc but ran out of time, next year :)
Supper time is almost always a gong show at our house - hence why i usualyl drink at supper ;)

So many egg hunts!! Those Boogie Boards look neat! They can write on them?

Leo used to eat chocolate eggs on with the foil. He has now mastered how to take the foil off with lightening speed.

Whining is the worst. I can't wait until I can have wine to deal with the whining ;)

That wall is awesome for photos! Ryder can totally rock the floral!

What a fun and busy weekend!! We didn't do ANYTHING for Easter this year :( We were all so sick and then flying on Sunday that we decided to just scrap it (Sully is none the wiser but I feel a bit guilty lol). Maybe I will surprised him with an egg hunt one of these days just for fun! That library looks so fun! Well, the walls anyway ;) Sully was peering over my shoulder while I was reading this and was like "is that dewainey? is that ryder? can we go to their house?" hahaha!

What a fun weekend! Holidays are soooo much more fun when kids are around. I love how Delainey got so into the egg hunt part! It's great when they are old enough to understand more and more of the traditions. We did an egg hunt with my nieces and nephews at the lake but I was wiped out from my shower so didn't hide any of the eggs (I was a lame aunt that day!).
