Ahhh, I love a long weekend! Corey and I both had off work on Friday, so we got some extra time to enjoy as a family – I’m grateful because Corey’s weekends are booked solid for the next month or so with all of the extracurriculars he does!
We spent Friday relaxing, running errands, and just hanging out. We went out to eat at one of our favorite local diners – Jackson had his first bit of hamburger and was obsessed. He got so excited and ate almost a quarter of Corey’s burger – and would have had more if we would’ve let him!
We also got Jackson’s hair cut – it was his second haircut ever and he had just as much fun as the first time…thank goodness he thinks haircuts are hilarious! We had her style it into a faux hawk and now I’m determined to figure out how to do it myself – there’s nothing in this world cuter than a toddler with a ‘hawk!
On Sunday we went out to my parents’ house for Easter lunch. It was the first time (maybe in my life?) that we’d had Easter anywhere other than my grandmother’s house, and it was strange. She passed away in November and little holidays like this are the ones that I remember being so special at her house – I’m hoping that over time we can create that same feeling of excitement and nostalgia for Jackson at my parents’ house.
We had a giant lunch and then hid eggs for the kids – well, more like laid eggs on the ground for Jackson to grab, and actually hid eggs for my nieces. He got super into it (he loves putting things into other things right now, so this activity was sure to be a hit!) and I think he could have kept going all afternoon!
Oh, and we also took our bluebonnet photos this weekend! We’ve been anxiously waiting for the field near our house to fill up so we could snap some photos, and I was so excited to cross this off of our to-do list…it’s hilarious because I never cared about bluebonnet photos before having Jackson but now they’re a must-have!
How was your Easter weekend? It was so fun this year to have Jackson actually participate in some of the traditions!
