It’s amazing how quick the long weekend goes when you have something planned everyday. It goes even faster when you have children. I remember the time we celebrated Easter before having children. It was definitely longer.
Our Easter started pretty much on Friday. While Matthew was still in creche for the day I went off to do some shopping and get Matthew’s last Easter presents he was going to find in the garden Easter Sunday.
Saturday morning Matthew and daddy went off to grandparents who only live down the road from us. He got a Crunchy Easter egg off them. Originally the weather was promised to be horrible but it was gorgeous all weekend and it was even too warm for that warmer coat so I could just wear a cardigan. When Matthew went off for his nap I did the weekly shopping in Lidl.
In the afternoon we got ready to go to the christening meal from hubby’s friend. There is exactly 1 month between Chloe and the other baby. They could be girlfriend and boyfriend in future… who knows.
Apart from the meal Matthew had a ball running around the pub for 2 hours. He was so hyper that it took him a good bit to calm down before bed time. He was asleep by 9.30pm which is normally 8-8.30pm.
Sunday morning after breakfast we all went outside in the garden to see what the Easter bunny brought.
After having a bit of chocolate after his breakfast we went to the local park because it was such gorgeous weather and so warm. With a few little tantrums on the way we finally got there and had a stroll around. A bit of slide, swing and a walk around the park and we went back to the house. It meant it was Matthew’s nap time before lunch.
Daddy and Matthew went over to grandparents again and had a run around in their big garden. I think he wishes we would have such a big garden but then again we have a big green in the middle of the estate he can run around on. Meanwhile Chloe and me went out for a walk again. Can’t have enough fresh air.
Because we didn’t have any take away on Friday I went to KFC and got us some food.
Monday morning we stayed in for a bit because daddy had to catch up on some work upstairs. Matthew did not want to nap so instead we went off for another walk around the estate with Chloe.
In the afternoon we met up with Matthew’s godfather and his own son for a bit of playing in our garden and dinner out in lovely Strandhill.
Matthew must be chickened out this weekend. He had so many chicken and chips I hope he is sick of them now for the next while. I need to start and give him more vegetables again. He is very fussy with some food though.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter.
