Skipping Stones and Bonfires

This past weekend was the annual Mutual Aide campout. The weekend is chance for all the fire departments to get together and enjoy good food, good company and a lot of fun.

Here was our humble abode. Our tent was set up under a larger tent just in case it rained.

This was our view which was absolutely stunning. As you can see, Molly loved it as well. 🙂

Since this was JBear’s first time camping, we induldged in all the camping traditions. You can’t tell a ghost story without putting a flashlight under your chin. 😉 Sppppoookkkky.

And then there were the campfires at night; these were my favorite part of the entire trip. I just loved staring into the crackling flames and listening to all the stories and jokes being shared. It was great.

Of course the campfire cuddles played a huge part in it as well.

There was also  a fairly large pond packed with fish. JBear’s favorite thing to do was throw rocks into the water and watch the huge splash that would accompany it.

I even taught my little guy how to skip rocks. However, I will admit that I succumbed to the pressure of trying to skip a rock while being taped. You’ll just have to take my word that I am the master-rock-skipper (despite the video and what my hubby may say – LOL!)

All in all, it was a great time and a lot of great memories were made.

Eggs and Bunnies

For all of us who celebrate Easter, or just like to get into the holiday spirit for the chocolate 😉 here are some cute little ideas to try.

As he did with Christmas, my little man is chompin at the bit for Easter to get here. So to help pass the time, I found these cute ideas just for him to do and help “prep” for Easter (aka keep him busy so he stops asking his mamma when is Easter over and over and over and over and over again) ;-).

This is super cute and would be a nice little keepsake in his scrap book. We could use mommy, daddy, and JBear’s hands to make the wings.

I love this game since you can tailor it from counting, to letters, to emotions….the possibilities seem endless.

We have so many Easter traditions in my family but one that is very special is the Easter Bread (Guti di Pasqua). This year I am going to try my hand at Guti di Pasqua and hopefully (fingers crossed it turns out) surprise my mom.

What a cute take on deviled eggs for Easter. I wonder if they taste any different? Huh – we’ll just have to make them and see.

And then of course you must decorate….seriously, I told you guys before, any excuse I can use to decorate, I will! 😉

How stinkin cute is this for the front door?! It is relatable to Spring and Easter, and looks to be a quick and easy DIY piece. Love it!

Here is another super cute piece that looks super easy to make. The best part about this one is that it is all candy so there is no need to take it down and put it away after Easter is gone…just munch, munch, munch. 😉

These cupcakes are perfect for JBear’s class….that is if any make it there. They look DELISH!

So we’ve talked a little about ways to keep you little ones busy, ideas on cooking, baking, and decorating your home.

Now we are on to beautifying yourself for the Easter holiday. This is the look I am thinking of rockin at Easter….

It has all the elements, candy, easter eggs, her hair sort of looks like a nest….LOL.

Okay seriously, that may be a little too bold for me but the look below is right up my alley. The colours are pretty and if this is too bold for you, then you can easily calm it down for a more wearable daytime look.

And last but definitely not least, what to wear. I love this look. It is not overly dressy but still cute enough to mark the occasion and it looks comfortable which is always a must have. Pair it with a cute sweater jacket and I’m all set.
