Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. We left Houston in our rear view mirror early Friday morning and arrived in Tyler around 11 much to everyone's surprise! We totally surprised ourselves that we had gotten on the road so early and packed everything that Caroline could possibly want/need. That is until around Centerville I remembered that I had forgotten all of Caroline's food. Yes, that's right ladies and gentlemen, if there are any that read my blog, I left all of her food that I make from scratch sitting on the counter in the cooler full of ice! Needless to stay there was a "discussion" about whose responsibility it was to get the cooler in the car.

When we got to The Blairs' house Kyle ran to the local Wal-Mart and picked up formula and organic baby food, because that's got to be the closest thing to Mom's home cooking right. We attempted go...then we tried the go. We had to steam some carrots and throw them in the food processor so that Caroline wouldn't go hungry, because for those of you who have seen her it's a possibility that if she misses a meal she might just waste away.

So after lunch the girls, being Mary Ann, Julie, Olivia, Caroline and myself, ran errands and had the best time shopping at antique stores. Caroline was such a trooper she didn't even make a peep the entire day so of course she was rewarded with a shopping spree at Kohls. Don't you just love that store? Absolutely nothing that I bought for her was over $4! AND it was all adorable outfits for summer. Because also if you didn't know, that darling daughter of mine has absolutely NO clothes. It's actually pathetic!

Then we came home and got dinner ready for Kyle and Jeff who had been out slaving all day playing 18 holes of golf. I know Kyle works so hard! After dinner I was beat and so was Caroline we headed to bed because tomorrow we were off in the car to head to the Farm but not before we saw Eric and Melissa and watched Liv hunt Easter eggs! (There are no pictures of our time in Tyler because I didn't have my memory card for the camera just yet)

So we woke up and had breakfast and then it was off to Eric's parents house so that they could meet Caroline for the first time. I think, no I know, Caroline had a wonderful time meeting the first of many of her "Aunts" from Shreveport. She can't wait to meet all of them but we'll have to do it a few at a time so that she won't get too overwhelmed. She had the best time playing with Melissa. I think Mel has a "way" with kids. Then we got in the car again to watch Liv hunt those elusive Easter eggs. I was totally impressed with her skills. She hung back and let those silly kids run to the end of the field and she grabbed all of the eggs at the first. Her basket was overflowing. I was such a proud "Sissy", her name for me.

Then we were off to the farm for lunch and lots of kisses from Aunts, Gumpas, Great Grandparents, and Grandparents. We had a great lunch and enjoyed the afternoon of leisurely drinking on the farm and just hanging out.Hanging out with Daddy.

Chilling watching "toons" in the swing.

Laughing with the baby in the mirror. She just thinks that baby is so too cute.

Easter Sunday (not the best picture of looks like I might be expecting...but I'm not...we'll call it a bad angle!)

Easter Basket and her loot!

Her ever stylish pink python shoes!

More stuff....Caroline's Grandmommy spoils her!
Something to carry her bottles....A bathtub pig wash cloth.. A pool float for Mommy and Caroline

That's it...there aren't any more gifts?

I can't believe it!!!!

So that was our eventful weekend. We, being Kyle, myself and Vivian, left after lunch. My Mom/Grandmommie talked us into her and PawPaw keeping Caroline until Tuesday. So we left Caroline at the Farm. It was sad but she has so much fun with her Grandmommie and PawPaw. She the proof below.
Oh! I almost forgot! Since Caroline was spending a few nights at the farm I was able to get a much needed and deserved pedicure. Girls, spring has finally sprung in the form of Cajun Shrimp on my pampered toes!

Have a great Tuesday! Enjoy LOST! I know that I'll be planted in front of the tube with a glass of wine and the constant perplexed look on my face!

Your picture captions had me in stitches! She is absolutely adorable... and just as spoiled as Liam! He had not 1, but 3 Easter baskets: 1 from each Grandmother and one from mom! Love the shoes by the way... Too bad they don't make them for boys! However, I did find a pair of cowboy boots that match Bills. I have my eye on them! Have you seen the Kicky Pants stuff??? LOVE THEM.Esp. in this hot Houston weather!
