Friends, Fun and a Movie!

With my kids being in Year Round School, they had a very, very short Spring Break (3 days off). We went to see the Monsters vs. Aliens movie with our friends. I was a little resistant in seeing this movie based on the previews and some one's comments about the movie. But, I loved it! We saw the 3-D version and I don't normally like 3-D movies as they normally give me a headache. Not this movie! I couldn't even tell I had on glasses. After the movie, we went over to Barnes and Nobles and us girls (adults) each got a coffee!

The kids looked around at books and a few purchased books. Then we headed over to our friend's house for more fun, lots of girl chatting, food and a surprise wild rain storm!

Awesome EASTER

I know I have not posted in awhile. Sorry!
We had a very fun EASTER with my husband's side of the family. My In-Laws has always had such great EASTERS at their house. This year they changed it up a bit, but we loved it!
Easter Egg Hunt. This year each kid had a specific color of plastic eggs to find. Mr. President was orange and Firecracker was pink (she is no loving pink right now, but was okay with it since she is the only girl in the family). This worked out perfect in that everyone got the same number of eggs to find and $ in the eggs;))
Pinata The new Easter addition and the kids had a ball!

After brunch, hunt and pinata, the grown-ups sat down outside and just talked and watched the resident squirrels and blue jays eating the peanuts my father in-law threw on the lawn.

My In-Laws took us out to yummy Chinese later in the day. It was such a PERFECT DAY!!
