Only A Week Late!

The week before Easter, Boy Pop got sick with a nasty ear infection. In true Boy Pop fashion, though, he bounced back very quickly, so we decided to make one last trek to the local carnival.

We didn't stay as long, but we had just as much fun!

The boy even made an attempt to climb a rock wall.

The next day, we loaded up the car and the dog, left an insane amount of cat food out, and headed to my hometown for the weekend.
It was a very good weekend.

We even went to the zoo on Saturday.

Now let me tell you something about the zoo in my hometown... I don't come from a huge city. The place where I grew up has approximately 100K people, though. And it has what I believe to be one of the best zoos anywhere around, complete with lions, jaguars, a black rhino, a huge snake house, giraffes, and monkeys (just to name a few). I've been going to this zoo for years and I love it. Now my boy loves it, too.

The following morning, Easter Morning, we did all the Easter things. Boy Pop received entirely too much chocolate and candy.

Then we went to my parents' country club for an Easter lunch complete with Easter Bunny!

After lunch, we loaded up the car and headed home. And much to our amazement, the Easter Bunny had been to our house, too! Actually, it was Dr Pop's parents. They brought an Easter Basket, hid eggs, and left a sign up for us.

And we had yet another Easter Egg hunt!

It was a wonderful weekend, capped by the mother of all confetti egg fights.

All I can say about that is thank heavens for my Dyson!

Coming up next... Hospitals and half-birthdays!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Of course, I had to see who you were so I perused all your blogs. Great job. I love the one with your son and husband. I, too, have one son and sometimes think about having another until reality hits me. Nope!
It's amazing how fast they grow,like you wrote in one post about your son growing up. My son is 8 and is going to be taller than me sooner than later.
Love the blog, I have many of the same values as you-Family First!
