This morning the kids played nicely in their rooms together then half played Chutes and Ladders. During breakfast the kids watched Wild Kratts: Flight of the Butterflier XT. Following breakfast the kids took turns hiding and finding easter eggs. The kids an I enjoyed a game of Sorry. It was a very close game for P and I after D quit. She must not have been into board games today. The kids wanted to make a fort so I had them make one themselves. I was giving instructions of how we usually make one while I was doing dishes. They were having difficulites at a certain point so dad aided them while he was trying to get out the door.
Since the Easter Bunny is coming soon the kids decided to make letters so he would know what they wanted. P was drawing a picture of a Furbling and didn't like out it turned out so he wanted to print one off. I guided him on searching for a picture and helped him print it off. D was writing down some of the kew words I had written down then printed a picture of the Furbling that she wants. They both cut out the pictures, P helped D a little bit. P glued his to his picture and D just played around with hers. Since the kids had been behaving well I let them watch some Sonic X while we ate lunch and I took a shower.
After we got everyone ready, we were out the door. First we went and got hair cuts. All three of us got hair cuts and the kids did very well. This is only the second time D got her hair cut. P loves going and getting his hair cut, refuses to ever let me do it again. Following hair cuts we hung out at the library for a while. The kids found some kids to play with, and someone's grandma. We started checking out CDs so we can get a good library of music for the kids for our summer trips. Then we headed to Meijer for some groceries and some nice clothes to wear on Easter. I tried to get D to pick out a nice sun dress but she insisted on a fancy dress. She even had to put it on the second we got home. I hope the dress lasts until August for the wedding we are going to.
When we got home the kids listened to the CDs they got and then headed outside. The dog and I went out for a little bit with them and we all played fetch with the dog. P liked using the new throwing toy, Chuck-It Launcher, that we got. I really like it too, it makes it so we don't have to touch much dog drool! When we came in everyone was pretty much pooped, especially since the kids got up at 7 AM this morning. P watched Sonic X and Wild Kratts. D did some activities from an Easter learning pack and looked on Toysrus.com for things she wants for her birthday. Then both kids relaxed with a couple shows of Wild Kratts.
Today was a busy but fun day. It is hard to not just let them play video games or watch TV when they are feeling lazy or when they are driving me crazy. I am trying hard to stick to it, it is better for all of us.
