Easter weekend was fun! Alex flew home on Friday and made hotel/dinner reservations for just the two of us. An overnight date night!! My favorite.
Alex is traveling a lot lately and even though it's not easy on any of us, I'm so very proud of him. He works extremely hard to provide for our family. He works extremely hard pastoring our church. And above both of those things, he works extremely hard to make me and the girls a priority. What he does isn't easy. I admire and love him so much.
Our niece, Victoria stayed with the girls and did a great job caring for our babies. She babysat a lot for us to pay for her spring break trip and the girls LOVED spending time with her. So we've asked her to be our summertime babysitter and the girls couldn't be more excited. Sydney is so much like Roo-Roo...it makes me smile.
We were home around noon on Saturday. I ran a few last minute errands and worked at the church for a bit. By the time I arrived home, it was time to take Amelia to play baseball.
She asked Alex if he would take her to the "baseball court" after his trip to Des Moines.
We obviously need to work on our baseball lingo.
So off to the baseball court we went.
She could actually hit the ball. I was surprised!
We came home and the girls dyed Easter eggs with their Daddy while I did some baking for Easter Sunday. Dyeing eggs is always messy. Amelia went to church with a green hand on Sunday. And Sydney just wanted to crush the eggs with her bare hands. Daddy's nerves were shot trying to keep them clean. I was reminded why I do the crafts with the girls. HA! It was funny to watch!
They sure had fun though!
