I hope everyone had a great Easter break, stuffed with Easter eggs and hot cross bun. Normally we get 4 days long weekend off from work during Easter. This year, I took extra day off on Thursday making my weekend even longer.
It was Chhori’s first Easter at her child care and they had an Easter Hat parade. We made a yellow hat for her and I was really excited for her. So on Thursday I went to the parade with my SIL and some other friends.
They had decorated the place nicely and all the parents were excited to see the kids wearing Easter hats. Chhori did well as she had her hat on the whole time. She came with her class mates and went around the yard half of the way for the parade and then she saw me. Instead of continuing, she came running to me and sat with me.
They also had an Easter egg hunt and she managed to find a few eggs which she ate straightway.
She had fun and I am so happy that she is liking her childcare more now. No more tears unlike before.
The rest of the weekend went too fast. The first day, we went to the Easter show with our friends. This was a mini Easter show unlike the one we went to last year. Anyway this was good to go with kids and Chhori had heaps of fun.
We had our lunch there and Chhori enjoyed the petting zoo. They had a dog, pigs, rabbits, hens, ducks, goat, sheep, alpaca, calves among other animals.
Chhori was observing the animals and making their sounds and repeating the names. For some reason, she decided not to touch any animals.
The main achievement for Chhori was that she managed sit on a ride on her own. She has never been on a ride on her own so I wasn’t sure how she would like it but she really wanted to go on one which had elephants with a driving wheel in front of each seat. So we allowed her and I was ready for her to cry when the ride started moving but to my surprise she was smiling and playing happily with the wheel in front of her. I was so happy and proud of my little one. She had real fun and wanted to go again and again.
The next day, we went out with our friends to the beautiful Winnererremy Bay for a BBQ.
It was a beautiful autumn day and we had great fun. The kids went to the beach and enjoyed the sand and the water.
Another day, we went on a picnic with AS’s cousins to Stanwell park. It was another beautiful day to catch up and enjoy the amazing blue sky, sea and sun.
On the last day of Easter, we went to Ikea for some shopping and ended the day and the long weekend with some homemade open momo which we were trying for the first time. It turned out really yummy.
Overall we had a great Easter with friends and family. Hope everyone had great Easter break as well.
Take care till next time.
