Our Holiday weekend started with an Egg Hunt at Savannah’s school on Friday. I don’t know how she found them but she has been watching videos on YouTube of people opening eggs with toys in them so she was very excited to get some eggs of her own.
Savannah had made a bag during the day to collect her eggs in. When we went outside there were sooo many eggs! Savannah took off to start collecting with a huge grin on her face. After a couple minutes I noticed there was candy on the ground around her. At closer inspection I realized she was picking up the eggs, opening them, dropping the candy and putting just the empty egg in her bag! I just had to laugh. And maybe cry looking at the yummy candy I couldn’t have as “candy tax” that night..
The ears came off her bag while she was hunting for eggs so she gave them to Tyler – maybe not the best choice for safe keeping but was glad she was sharing with him. He was thrilled and promptly put them in his mouth.
Her bag was overflowing when we left. I had to convince her no more would fit, she kept trying to put another in the bad and would get annoyed when it fell out. When we arrived home she poured out her bag and looked through her stash. Not bad for her first try!
This morning Savannah decided she wanted to go out for pancakes and a balloon. Balloon means Denny’s so I piled them into their carseats and headed out. She was super happy telling me the whole time she wanted a blue balloon. Tyler had his first experience in a highchair. It went really well! He has also started eating the disolveable cereal pieces and yogurt bites so that kept him entertained while we waited for food.
It took longer than I thought so we had to rush home and drive to our neighborhood’s egg hunt. I forgvot my phone in the car so I don’t have pictures of it. Afterwards she played in the sand for a bit until we had to get Tyler home for a nap.
Our little girl was very happy with her second load of eggs and balloon!
Tyler was of course happy as could be too.. Even without candy..
After all the fun in the sun Savannah and I are now relaxing on her lion chair (yes – she wanted me to sit next to her on it!!) watching The Jungle Book while Tyler is taking a much needed nap. Including some goofing off and dancing with King Louie..
After what I figure was a sugar crash or just too much excitement Savannah started really acting out. She ran her bike into Dakota, started swatting at the air/table etc when she couldn’t have something or didn’t like something, yelled at her brother for being upset (tired) and I don’t even remember what else. After a few timeouts I had enough and made her go upstairs for a nap. She ended up crying herself to sleep but woke every maybe twenty minutes to half hour crying again. The third time I went up and watched her rubbing her eyes and yawning – clearly still tired. I gave her the option to nap some more or read and she lost it again. I ended up leaving her crying again since I wasn’t able to soothe her at all and she was getting more and more upset. After about 10 minutes she calmed down and is now sitting on her bed wiping her eyes. These weekends are hard!!
And here she is after finally crying it out and coming downstairs..
