Happy Easter

Two weeks ago your daycare had a 'dance party bbq' at the end of the day on a Friday (they hold one of these 'parties' every couple of months so the parents can meet each other - I love this place - so community'. We went inside to play a bit first - you LOVE this zebra - it bounces up and down and turns around - like a bucking bronco.

Outside I got a picture of you sitting next to your friend Sana. You had fun at the party - mostly because you LOVE the hot dogs they serve (you had 3! you kept going up the table and putting your hand up and saying More Please!). But we also had fun dancing though too - you liked bouncing around to La Vida Loca!!

Last week you and I weren't feeling great - so had a few 'tt' days (what you call TV). You LOVED watching Lady & the Tramp from aunty Joni. Lots of cute puppies!

And then last Friday - the big event - Dada came home!! You ran out the front door and gave him a big hug when you saw him. You then didn't let him out of your sight for the rest of the weekend! Every time he left the room you'd yell at the top of your lungs DADA!!!!

On his first afternoon back we took a walk down to the neighborhood park

Fun on the slide with Dada

You LOVE this slide because it is long, but not too fast


Riding the rocking 'horse'

Bubbles back at home

Taking puppy, baby and baba for a ride in the stroller

We also had a lovely day at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden with Steve, Selina, Clara & Amelia

You LOVED how good Amelia & Clara were at blowing bubbles!

Easter Sunday we started by making cookies together for the first time

You started playing with the dough like play doh though and breaking it off into tiny pieces

The Easter shapes were SO cute!

Then Aunty Helen came over and set up a fun egg hunt!

WOW - first egg found!

View from inside your cabin

Ohhh another one

Cute bunny shirt from Grandma & Grandpa

And a cute ducky basket from Nana & Granddad!

Shaking the eggs is fun!

Ahhhhh I LOVE it!

Too fun

Then it was time to decorate!

SO much fun

They turned out beautifully (and tasted SO nice!)

After you nap we went to another local park and you loved swinging with Helen

Bunny Skyping!

Doing your best home alone impression with Dada - ha ha

Your new favorite hiding spot

I also made cupcakes for our special visitors this week (who love Spiderman!)

Zephyr & Lennox! They came with Mom Cassie to spend the day with us which was great fun.

Later in the week you impressed Grandma & Grandpa on skype with your musical skills

and you impressed Mama by eating your new favorite vegetable - broccoli!

Your second Easter Egg hunt happened later in the week with your friend Isla

The two of you had fun putting the little wooden eggs through the screen door vents as well, because they would fall out of the bottom - very clever :)

We also had our third swimming lesson this week. Oh my GOSH do you love it - you have a HUGE smile on your face the whole time. This week when we arrived I said look Genna - the pool - we're going to go swimming! You said SWIMMING and took off running for the entrance fully clothed :)

This week your new favorite saying is Washing Hands. You love saying it, even while pouring milk from your cup onto your hands for fun!

A fabulous Easter Break for sure :)

  1. We keep watching the videos over and over and looking at the pictures again and again. Counting down the days until we can see you in person, Dear Genevieve. Glad that you had a nice Easter, but wish we could have been there with you. Love and Kisses, Grandpa and Grandma
