Happy Easter!

I had a fantastic Easter weekend. It was just what I needed. Last week I hated kids and was ready to strangle someone. So, a four day weekend could not have come at a better time!

I feel much better after spending time with family and friends, and just relaxing. Here's what I was up to:

On Friday morning I got up early to see the little rugrats. They jumped into my parents' fancy bathtub and stayed there for almost an hour, playing with the lights and jets.

I helped them make some cookies while we waited for the rest of the family to come over.

Then we all decorated Easter eggs, played outside, and had a fish fry for Good Friday.

More bathing followed, then everyone went home and it was peaceful again!

On Sunday I went over to the States to celebrate Easter with my bff, M.T. and her family. I love that crew.

This guy is adorable. Look at that curly hair! He is so beautiful!

M.T. is amazing and worked her butt off, cookin' up a storm! It was so delicious, one of the best holiday meals ever to enter my mouth. I found out I love turnips a lot!

After that I went to my Grannie's house to visit for a bit before heading back to Toronto.

Somewhere else in there I managed to watch Marley and Me, eat steak and drink wine, go to Church twice, have a soup extravaganza, and fill up 3 photo albums for my mom!

I also realized that this weekend involved being around a lot of kids, but it's different when you actually like them.


  1. It was sooooooooooo nice having you home. You are so much fun to be around... and so helpful!! I know that TO is only 3 hours away but I sure do miss seeing you. I'm glad you had a good weekend. You will be able to go back to work all refreshed. Thanks for the great time we had when we took you home..... I just love the street meat that we had for lunch!! And, the bubble tea... yummy..... you just gotta love being in TO!!!!

  2. Hmmm - my post disappeared again! Anybody else having this problem??????

  3. That's weird Marina! No one else has mentioned disappearing comments, so I'm not sure what's happening!
