weekend highlights {not what I planned}

I was so excited to take Mia to her first Easter egg hunt of the year, but mother nature had other plans for us when Mia woke me up in the middle of the night Thursday (or I suppose it was the early morning hours of Friday) with a fever of 103 and a nasty cough :( Poor girl! It always breaks my heart when she's sick! So we took it easy on Friday with lots of stories, cuddles and some shows, but she just couldn't kick the fever. I wasn't feeling too bad about cancelling with our friends on the egg hunt because of obvious reasons.... until I discovered there was an Easter bunny there for photo ops (hello? I love me a good screamin' picture of Mia!), mini ponies for the kids to ride (Mia would have DIED from excitement) and so much more! Kids man, they ruin everything! I'm kidding, I'm kidding ;) I'm just glad Mia didn't understand what she was missing out on!
Mia's fever didn't break until Sunday evening after a heavenly 4 hour nap! So of course we celebrated by throwing together a tiny egg hunt in our back yard! Mia loved it and tore into every egg to eat the candy before putting them in her basket. Obviously she remembered this from last Easter, ha ha!
 Egg hunt Arizona style.... rocks everywherrrrre!
We had a full day planned on Monday to make up for all the fun that Mia missed while sick (way to give her time to recover, right?) We went to the zoo first thing in the morning and Mia was so happy to run around with us in tow! Once she got her "monkey George" fix (obsessed much?) she really stopped caring about the animals and wanted to play in the water. She was the happiest, squealiest, nakey baby (she did have her bracelet and diaper on, HA!) at the splash pad! When Eric and I couldn't handle the heat anymore we tore Mia away and went out for lunch. After running a couple errands on the way home, we changed clothes then headed to the pool! Did I mention that the high was 97 (all freakin' weekend?!) so give us alllllll the water activities! Once again, Mia was in heaven! After the pool, I showered Mia while Eric grilled our dinner, and it was like pulling teeth to get her out of the shower! She is such a water lover- it's a good thing we moved to Arizona where we will be escaping to the water often!
I never want the weekends to end but this week will seem short because work has finally slowed to a normal pace and three day weekends are officially the norm for this fam! I can't wait to celebrate Easter with my little family + an extra day with the man we love most!

Poor girl- glad her sickness didn't last too long and you could still have some fun over the weekend. All your sunshine and pools and nice weather is making me so jealous!!! ;)

High of 97ยบ?! In March?! I could not deal. Fortunately, that's more than the perfect excuse to be a pool bum all summer long! Lucky ducks.

You are the best parents for real! I hope she is feeling better she looks so sweet in all those pictures!

I love that you all are swimming already and it's 97 degrees outside!! Though that is hot! If the summer only get hotter, I don't blame you for spending all of your time at the pool. How wonderful that Mia loves the water! :)

Poor sweetie! When kids are sick it's the saddest thing ever! So sorry she missed out on some fun, but it looked like you guys sure made up for it after she bounced back! ;) Happy to hear she's feeling much better now!!

Aww poor Mia! :-( So sorry that she missed the egg hunt because she was sick. :-( But what you guys ended up doing sounds like it was just as fun. Based on your adorable photos!! I hope that she is feeling better now too. :-)

Gimme that weather! High of 97 sounds PERFECT for me!!! Lyla has those same white sandals! Glad she's feeling better :)

Poor babe. There's not much worse than a sick little.
But, it sounds like you were able to make up the sick day with lots of fun in the water and sun!

So glad that Mia got to have a mini Easter egg hunt after her fever broke... poor kiddo!!! And I live in Scottsdale, so I feel ya on the heat!!

I really want to take Mason to see the Easter bunny this weekend but I am terrified that I might scar him for life. If 4 Santas (and crying at each one) didn't scar him enough, that dang bunny (who scares me!) just might push him over the edge LOL

Mandie said...

Sounds like a fun time...minus the whole being sick part. I'm thinking that I'll be coming down by you to warm my bones a little bit. :)
