We started off April the same we that we ended March: surrounded by family. My husband, the girls and I, all made a week long trip to visit our family, and meet our new baby niece.
The airplane ride was great, we kept the girls distracted with Paw Patrol and snacks. Even when their ears popped, the only screaming we heard from them, was my eldest yelling “I can’t hear me!” Over and over again until her ears popped back again.
The trip was very busy, and I am glad that I arranged our schedule with everybody before we got there. We made the best of all of the time we had, which meant a lot of car naps for the girls, and a lot of time visiting and catching up. Everybody had a great time, the girls got spoiled in hugs and kisses, and Easter treats, and my husband and I even got a couple hours together to enjoy a breakfast-date just the two of us. We were constantly on the go, which didn’t leave for a lot of down time, and we were all exhausted by the time we got home, but it was all well worth it!
I am glad to be back home, and we are working on getting the girls back into their regular routine. I caught up on some baking that I was itching to do, and tried out a couple new recipes that were inspired by our trip (like this baked falafel I made after enjoying Falafel for the first time last week).
I am currently in the kitchen sipping my coffee in peace while my youngest princess naps and my eldest is at school. After indulging in the girls’ Easter treats last week, I really should take this kid-free time to get a workout in though, so that’s all for now, I’m off to go break a sweat.
