Over at The Daily Post, a weekly photo challenge is posted. This week’s theme is A Day In My Life. Basically, they want me to share my day with you through photos. I’m no stranger to this concept and often write blog posts in this format.
Today was a FULL day. I have taken lots of photos, which will be posted in other posts. I’m going to give a quick recap of today using only cell phone pictures. It was hard making sure to snap photos with that when I had my Nex with me all day, too!
My morning started with some cuddles from Trinity. Since my mom is in town, and Daniel works third shift, Tboo slept in my bed. That way my mom could sleep in hers, and we’d all be comfortable.
Apparently it’s my turn to be sick (I was thisclose to making it through cold and flu season without incident!). This meant I took some DayQuil with my first cup of coffee.
After I had some caffeine and medicine in my system, I got ready for the day. We had plans, so I had to actually put effort into my appearance.
I had a bit of time before Megan, Dave, and Charlie were set to arrive. I spent that time throwing together brunch and then cuddling with Spike and Daniel while drinking my second cup of coffee and watching TV.
We also spent a good amount of time laughing about how big Daniel’s arm looks in the one photo. Welcome to the gun show or something!
Megan and family arrived a bit later with some sticky buns from Booth’s Corner in tow. So, we made a brunch out of that and my baked egg, sausage, spinach, and cheese dish. Everything was delicious.
I gave Charlie her Easter Basket, and she loved the plastic eggs more than anything that was in them. Megan gave me an awesome ring she made herself.
We headed out to one of the local farms for a hayride, egg hunt, visit with the Easter Bunny, and a petting zoo. Everyone had a bunch of fun, and Charlie didn’t scream when she got near the bunny! She wouldn’t sit on his lap, but she walked up to him! It’s a start.
They had Easter flowers on sale, and I now have to figure out where to plant my blue/purple hyacinths, mini daffodils, and orange tulips! I’m pretty excited about all the extra color to be added to my yard.
When we returned to my house, the menfolk got to work digging an area for our garden. They actually planted our first few things, and I’m pretty excited. Although, I did not snap a photo of this. Oops.
While the menfolk were doing that, us womenfolk boiled eggs, prepped dinner, and hung out. Eventually we had a bunch of fun dying eggs. Charlie did an amazing job, especially considering it was her first time!
After chasing the kids (and Spike!) around the yard, it was time for dinner. We had ham, cheesy potatoes, and green bean bundles. Oh, and lemon pound cake cupcakes and double chocolate banana bread muffins for dessert. Everything was amazing! Not to toot my own horn, but Megan and I are amazing in the kitchen.
Daniel was pretty exhausted at this point (stupid third shift! He’d been up since 9pm Friday night!). So, he went to sleep, and the rest of us went for a walk to the park down the street. Well, Trinity rode her bike. She was excited! We played at the park for an hour or so, and came home.
Charlie must have worked up an appetite climbing the stairs to the slide a million times. She gobbled up almost two whole banana bread muffins when we returned!
Trinity and Dave played a few games of Mario Kart 64 while the rest of us hung out and played with Charlie.
Everyone left around 9pm. I cleaned up the kitchen, prepped some overnight baked french toast for tomorrow, and got ready for bed.
Trinity is currently playing Mario Bros. on the NES in her room and Daniel and my mom are both sleeping. I’m on my computer for the first time all day. Once I’m done with this update, I’ll probably head to bed, too.
Well, I guess I’m going to take some NyQuil first. My sinuses are awful today! At least I wasn’t too sick to enjoy the amazing weather with such amazing people! Today was awesome, seriously.
What did you guys do with your Saturday?
