Yesterday was Easter - one of the coldest ones in my memory! That's a bummer for everyone who has pretty little spring dresses for their girls and then goes to church and it's 25 degrees outside! So, we ended up adding tights and a little white sweater to the ensemble, and with a new pair of shoes that morning, Lucy was ready to go. We made it to church super early and she did quite well in nursery... until she apparently ate an entire apple. That won't fit in her tummy, so some of it came back up onto her sweater. Therefore we had to make a pit stop at my parents' house (they were visiting Kelly & Heath in Evanston) to wash the sweater before heading to Ron's mom and dad's place...
I didn't have my camera with me that day, because I didn't expect to be out and about so long... but I'm hoping to get some photos from other people via e-mail. However, I took some pics of Lucy in her dress on Saturday, so that I could remember what she wore. She was not very interested in my mock photo shoot... but I got a couple decent ones anyway, and created a gallery.
I'm hoping to add some pictures of the little Easter egg hunt at Ron's parents' place... Lucy seemed to be having a great time finding the eggs hidden among the countless knickknacks, all the while avoiding getting trampled by her older cousins. No one whined about how many they found. Yeah right (but not Lucy, she was happy with one in each hand!).
After a couple hours of madness there (and not all the relatives could make it, but there were still six little kids) we decided we had made it this far without putting Lucy down for a nap, why not stop by my grandparents' house for an hour or so, where she proceeded to zero in on all of the ubiquitous candy dishes. Lucy did so well, despite not getting to take a nap until after 4:00 PM! When we finally got home, I changed into comfy clothes and fell asleep for an hour. I've never been so tired from an Easter!
