Well this spring break was eventful for us. Jack got to be home every night after work. It was his last break before he graduates in October, and it went by way too fast. I really like having the 3 of us together every night for dinner and Jack being home to help with the bed time routine is so nice because by that time, I am pretty much done fighting with babies! I have Sophie 4-5 days a week now so some days can get pretty exhausting. We have been spending a lot of time up in Auburn with Gin and doing things with her and her boys. The kids don't interact too much, but it's still fun to get them all together.
What was really crazy about this past week is our car was stolen right out of our parking lot! It was our Honda so not the new Toyota Corolla we got about a month ago. Luckily, we didn't even know it was gone before the cops were knocking on our door at 1 a.m. to tell us they had found it. Also what was lucky is nothing was done to it or stolen from it, except the jerk jammed the ignition with a screw driver so we need to replace that. The guy was arrested and hopefully will be in jail for a long time. It honestly baffles me that stuff like this really happens. We were definitely lucky to have gotten our car back with little to no problems, but since the ignition is jammed, Jack can't drive it to and from work. We are back to borrowing Letty's car until it gets fixed. It makes me so mad how inconsiderate and indecent people really can be. That guy probably doesn't know we are a young struggling family and that car is the one that provided the transportation for a a hard working guy to get to work to support his family. I guess even if he did know he probably wouldn't care. Obviously I am still a little heated about it haha.
Despite all of that, we still managed to have a wonderful weekend. On Friday, I put together a little Easter egg hunt for Owen and Sophie. I am holding off on giving Owen candy for as long as I possibly can, so I filled plastic eggs with Multi-Grain Cheerios and whole wheat graham cracker sticks. They had a lot of fun busting them open and getting cheerios all over my house!
Saturday morning, Jack and I loaded up Owen and took him to McBean Park in Lincoln for the egg hunt put on by the Lions Club (Jacks parents are members). They must have just cut the grass the day before because there were loose blades everywhere, and to make matters worse, the lawn was wet. Owen didn't like it very much haha. He dropped down to get an egg and once he felt the grass he wouldn't move or let anything else touch it. So that was the end of that. Afterwards, we tried to get a picture with the Easter bunny, but Owen would not have it. At first he seemed interested like he is when he sees a dog or a cat. But once we got close he fought against me pretty hard. It was the first time he ever showed fear.
Poor Jack, he had to share his birthday with Easter this year=(. In an attempt to make Jack feel extra special this year, I gathered some of our closest friends together on Saturday afternoon for a surprise lunch at Old Town Pizza (that place is such a staple in our lives). I am very proud I was able to keep it a secret from him all week, he usually blows it every time he tries to surprise me. After lunch, Ricky and Angela came back to our house and we all got to hang out and play games.
On Sunday, we headed over to Aunt Theresa's for a family Easter dinner and another egg hunt. Owen did better that time with the eggs, but once he got one he wanted to just sit and play with it, so Jack and I assisted a lot in the finding.
I'm sad the week had to end and Jack has to go back to his busy schedule of full time work and school, but it's only 6 more months to go! Summer is right around the corner, so I am sure time will fly by=D
