What We Got Up To Over Easter

The sun was out, the birds were singing and we hit the road for Easter Weekend to visit family. It has been awhile since we had done anything fun and out of norm so it was a welcome change for us. We started off our weekend with a visit to my parents where Lillibug decided to dress in her "Sunday Best". She felt like such a princess in her new dress and danced the afternoon away for Grandma and Granddaddy.



Lillibug was delighted with her Easter Basket this year. This is something I do every year for her so I think this will be a tradition for years to come. I filled her basket with hair clips, a Barbie DVD, bonnet, bag, Rabbit Ears, and chocolate eggs. 

The weekend also had us celebrating Kevin's Birthday so there wasn't just loads of Easter Eggs there was plenty of cake to go around too. We hit the road again to visit family in Kildare, and the weather was really out to put a spring in our step. Lillibug was rearing to go, especially to visit the calves with her Uncle Brian (she is his shadow).


Myself and Kevin also got a trip to the cinema to see "Fast and Furious 7" with Lillibug's Godfather and Godmother. I actually can't remember the last time we were at the cinema so it was great to get out while Lillibug entertained her Grandma and aunties with her ballet.



We finished up our weekend with a trip to Dublin Zoo with Sara from Where is my Mind? and her two gorgeous girls. The zoo was packed and it was extremely hot, but the day was brilliant. This was my first time to meet Sara and we had a blast getting to know one another in person. Of course Lillibug was in her element having two new friends who she could interact with. I'm not sure who was more excited about the whole day, myself and Sara or the kids! We had such a wonderful day and are missing the girlies already. We already have our next day trip together on the cards.



We finished up yesterday searching for fairies but instead we came across their friends the Ladybug. 


So that was our weekend in a nutshell, it was fantastic and was like a mini break away for us. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

  7. LOVE the idea of the Easter Basket. I think that's something I'll do from next year. My little girl is only 10 months and got 5 Easter eggs! Madness.

    1. Yeah Lillibug gets so many Easter eggs too so having the basket is really nice filled with other things is great. It didn't cost much to make up either and adding something like crayons and play doh is also great :-)
