We had a quiet time yesterday. Layla was up at 2 am with her flashlight looking for Easter eggs! After she found a few she was persuaded to go back to bed. After Lloyd and I got there, she and Baron hid a bunch of their eggs so that we could find them - so cute.
I love making soap bubbles so I brought the kids a giant bubble blower each to play with. It was a lovely windy day so they didn't have to exert much energy at all to have glorious big rainbow colored bubbles flying around. The pup went nuts trying to catch them, only to have them disappear when he tried to clamp his teeth around them. Lots of fun for them all.
|Baron tried to blow the bubbles until he realized that he just had to hold the bubble wand up and let the wind catch it and do all the work.|
|It's interesting to see the shapes they take before becoming the perfectly round bubbles we're familiar with.|
|Maizie got her exercise jumping at the bubbles - very frustrating for her not to be able to catch them|
|Then the kids started chasing the bubbles Lloyd generated.|
|Everything's a competition to Baron so he declared himself the winner for catching the most bubbles, but nobody was counting!|
Later we took Maizie for a walk at an off-leash area where she was free to run and play to her heart's content. She's a well behaved dog though and always came running back to her family and sitting nicely when we met other people who stopped to chat and admire her awesomeness.
All in all, it was a lovely way to spend a quiet day. And now I have to finish packing up to head home.
