Last week B was on a home improvement kick. He put a faucet into the garage, planted a tree, put in a new light fixture in the dining room,
put in stepping stones to the street,
decorated the patio,
got a new rug and pillows for the living room,
and hung a kite and put up decals in Chase's room.

We had a wonderful Easter!
We kicked off the event with some egg dying (this year we went for marbled eggs - the trick to marbled eggs is to put 2 - 3 tablespoons of oil into the dye before you start dunking your eggs).
Chase took egg dying very seriously...
This year Chase's basket was hidden in the coat closet. He loved his basket and determined that the bunny must know him very well.
After the basket hunting G and I knocked out a 6 mile run (I just couldn't commit to do the 9 mile run that was on the schedule). We followed the run with a delicious family brunch. I love quiche.
Back at home we did a neighborhood alley egg hunt and potluck / happy hour. Just about every neighbor came and we played hard until bedtime. I love our block! I hid about 150 eggs and there were only 7 kids and 3 didn't want to hunt - let's just say the kids that decided to hunt ended up doing fairly well for themselves.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful day too!

We had our front patio poured this evening! Everything was going great and the patio was almost smooth and then Chase decided to let the dogs out and they ran all over the wet concrete! Luckily the guy was really nice and re-did the smoothing. Chase felt bad though and was so sad he almost refused to do handprints - but in the end he did and all is well and hopefully by Easter we will be out sitting on our new patio!
