Easter Saturday

Our Easter usually includes LTC and this year was no different. We thought we were going to have a nice and calm weekend at home. Then we found out that Barbara was flying into Dallas on Thursday to help out at LTC. So we changed our plans to include a trip to Dallas on Thursday also. We actually picked up Barbara and Manny along with Robert (who had been in Pensacola earlier in the week) at the DFW airport.

It turned out to be a wonderful weekend and we have lots of pictures to show for it. Here they are...
Each year at LTC, Robert and I take a picture in this same spot with the girls. It is fun to look back and see what has changed from year to year. Reagan loved watching the elevators going up and down - as you can tell in this first picture we took.
This one was a little better - although Reagan didn't quite get the message to look at the camera.
We decided to go to the mall and eat at Cheesecake Factory - one of my favorite places. Here are the girls with Barbara. They were excited to be together (all 3 of them).
Of course a trip to the mall with Aunt Barbara means a visit to Build-A-Bear. Here is the bear that Reagan picked this time. She loved hugging on it pretty much the whole time.
Lindsey and Barbara waiting while the worker finished stitching up Brittany (from the Chipmunks).
After the animals are stuffed, you are supposed to go to the "bath" station and brush them so that there isn't any extra fur that will come off later. The girls (with a little help from Uncle Manny) got their new friends cleaned up.
After the mall, we found a park where the girls could have an Easter egg hunt that Manny and Barbara had planned out. We went to Trinity Park. Growing up in Fort Worth, I went there fairly often for different things but mostly I remember MayFest and also riding the train from the zoo.

Lindsey needed a little bit of help getting this egg down.
Reagan had a lot of fun finding her "well hid" eggs.
So cute!
One of Reagan's gifts was a new snack cup. Uncle Manny decided to put jelly beans in with the goldfish and Reagan quickly decided she didn't want the goldfish and began digging for just the jelly beans.
In some of Lindsey's eggs, they had put pieces of paper that had directions on them. This one said to go tell Robert who her favorite singer was. She told him and then he gave her this book all about Taylor Swift. She was ecstatic. I really wish I had been on the other side so that I would have a picture of her face but oh well.
Lindsey also needed help with this egg. It was in a great hiding spot.

Reagan also got this really cute puppy. It sings songs and teaches colors along with other fun things.
Heading back to the van we went right by the train. Reagan was fascinated with it. I hope to go to the Fort Worth Zoo soon and ride the train. I know two little girls who would love it.
We had a great and busy Saturday. We drove home after all this and not ten minutes down the road, Reagan was asleep. It took Lindsey a little longer since she had these new books to read. But we all had a great time and were ready for Easter Sunday (post to follow soon).
