Just in case you didn't have enough Easter pictures in your Facebook news feed, here are a few more. The kid was very excited because she got to wear her new shoes today and they have a HEEL on them. She says the shoes are yellow. I say they are green. I have this feeling like she and I aren't likely to agree on anything again until she is in her 30s.
It's cold and rainy today, but we went to church and then out to brunch as per our Easter tradition. We used to go to some of the fancy Easter buffets around town but most are not vegetarian-friendly. I end up paying $16.99 (per person) and then find I'm only able to eat about fifty cents worth of fruit because there is nothing else without dead stuff in it. So, we just went to a regular breakfast joint instead. This afternoon we're just planning to eat candy and waste time playing games on our respective tablets.
Yesterday, the kid and I met up with some friends (a mother-daughter duo) and spent the afternoon together. We went to lunch at a local vegetarian restaurant (our friends are veg as well) and then walked around at a wildlife sanctuary for a while. Then we came back to our house for a bit before they had to head home. The girls used foam-core posterboard to make dance floors for their Barbies. Just when you thought your Barbie had everything she needed, right?
