Double Easter Egg Hunts

Image
This past Saturday, several churches in town held Easter Egg Hunts. In true Jennifer fashion, I didn't really want to go but I knew McKayla would enjoy herself and that I would to once I got out. Plus, my niece had spent the night and I knew SHE'D enjoy going to. So I sucked it up and went. LOL
The first one was at a small Russian Church which had a couple bounce houses, some arts and crafts, face painting and free food. They had this one scheduled to the T. They had play time for about an hour, while they waited for people to arrive and then they put on a small skit. After that was about another 45 minutes of playtime while they finished cooking (hot dogs and a Russian pot roast/rice meal). We had an hour to eat before the actual egg hunt started. It went fairly smoothly it seemed and I understand the scheduling but I don't think that if they had ended up with a larger crowd if it would have went as smoothly.
Of course the hunt itself was over quicker than it took for ev…

Was talking to one of our neighbors the other evening about needing motivation and accountability to actually get out and walk, exercise, whatever. Someone that we knew who would hold us to our promises of walking the neighborhood together. We've made a 'pact' of sorts to start walking several laps every evening in our quest for health. Cross your fingers we walk more than we have excuses that we can't? 😁

Furry Friday ~ No Space

I've mentioned it before, but we have a pretty good sized sectional sofa with plenty of room for all 4 of us PLUS the dogs. So it stands to reason that if there's only one of us on said couch with the dogs, we'd have lots of room to sprawl out.
Well, we probably would if it wasn't for my dogs being snuggle buddies. And ya know what? I'm perfectly happy with that. Until I have to get up and then I have to listen to their grumbles. LOL
