You know you do.
Dim the lights and cue the seemingly endless slideshow of someone else's (totally adorable) children.
In the spirit of Good Friday and remembering the sacrifice Jesus made for us all on the cross we decided to take a family trip to Six Flags.
I know you probably aren't getting the sacrificial element there but by the end of the day I was totally offering up my hunger (would you believe grilled fish is nowhere on the Six Flags menu) and sore feet.
It would seem the kids suffered too. My husband had been planning the moment. Their first trip to Six Flags. The very first ride he would take them on. The Aquaman.
They not only did NOT love it, they complained about being wet for the entire next 20 minutes or so that it took the sun to dry them off.
Capes were procured.
Called for a repeat. Back to Six Flags!
Keep your eyes on the road!!
He will be getting a lesson in driving safety before he gets his license.
Started off with the smallest Easter baskets I could manage.
Do you feel sorry for them? Do they seem candy deprived?
They wore their fancy Easter clothes.
The Princess actually wore the same dress on Christmas but I Easter-fied it up a bit. Yup. Easter-fied is totally a word. She never wears that dress because, hello, WHITE dress. I just tied a scrap of ribbon around her waist and clipped on a hair flower. Bam. Easter-fied.
Then we went out to eat BBQ with the whole family, which is something we do every Easter, because I am too lazy to host Thanksgiving, Christmas AND Easter meals at my house.
Oh, and we brought changes of clothing. Because BBQ+white dress=disaster.
Then everyone came back to the house where Grandma brought out a giant box filled with candy to hide for Easter hunt #2.
Then we just hung out and celebrated Easter and my Sister-in-Law's birthday because she decided to make it easy on us year and have her birthday fall on Easter so we could just have one party.
Still feel sorry for my candy deprived children?
That evening a candy filled Princess got a tummy ache and nearly threw all that candy back up.
