Easter weekend is finally here, and I’m pretty excited to see this little guy crack his first Easter eggs (cascarones)…and run around and such. I didn’t realize how much I missed the real excitement of Easter until I became a mom. Now, I understand how fun it was for my mom to dress us up, build Easter baskets, take bunny photos and dye eggs.

I took this photo last year right before Antonio’s first birthday, so this year will be the first Easter where he understands the holiday. I’ve got a shopping bag full of Easter basket bits to put together. We’ll be coloring the rest of the eggs tonight, and on Sunday, we’ll be visiting my sister for her Easter sacraments ceremony. I’ll say that Antonio has a full Easter experience ahead of him. Happy Easter, everyone…here’s hoping there’s a chocolate bunny in your future!

The Start of Summer!

Today’s the summer solstice, and for those of us without school children, it’s the start of summer. Parents with older kids will probably argue that summer started once school let out. Whenever your summer started, enjoy the longest day of the year. Antonio and I are confined to the house. It seems that we caught a cold together…his first and my first in a long time.

So I’ll leave you with a pic of what we’d rather be doing. This is from Antonio’s first pool experience last month. The pool was a 1st birthday gift from his aunt. Here’s to more pool days in our future. In Texas, pool days last through early Fall. Happy Summer!
