Like last year, we made plans again to head to Dallas this year for The Blast, a walk/run benefiting neuroblastoma research for Cook's Children's Hospital. The weekend also coincided with a birthday celebration for our good friend Palmer, so after a long week, we were looking forward to a weekend out of town with good friends.
Unfortunately, I did not get many pictures from the weekend but we stayed BUSY.
We spent Friday morning at the zoo, hung out a little with Blythe and Erica, and then headed over to celebrate sweet Palmer's FIFTH birthday.
This girl has not fallen asleep on me in years - but I guess a long drive to Dallas, followed by a morning of running at the zoo will wear a girl out! I didn't have any complaints either - I could have snuggled this sleepy little love bug ALL. DAY.
Unfortunately, our plans to come home on Saturday afternoon were ruined by the fact that I caught a nasty stomach bug in Dallas. Instead of driving home and doing Easter with the family, we were stuck up in Dallas at a hotel pumping me full of medicine! But, after a good night of sleep and another round of meds, we made the trip back to Houston. And after some lunch and a nap, Olivia was thrilled to see that E. Bunny did come to visit.
He even left her a scavenger hunt to find her basket. The clues took her all around the house...
The mail slot
Her stinky shoes
Until she finally found her basket hidden in the bath tub!
She quickly dumped it all out to examine her loot!
And then, it was out to the garden to hunt for eggs!
One of the goodies Mr. Bunny brought her was princess playing cards for her daddy-daughter poker games. She was thrilled!
While, our Easter didn't go as we planned (which is a lesson we are learning more and more these days!), I think our little bubble-blowing bunny had a good day!
