Easter Weekend was the perfect opportunity for the April Outing-of-the-Month time with the little ones!
It was nice to give SIL Ana a short break since The Brother was busy elsewhere.
shenanigans games begin!
Who could stay indoors when the temps finally rose, and nothing but shirtsleeves/sweaters were needed?! Well, and a beret…
We started with a little bit of random exploring, then Little E and Baby C really got into sandbox play. After more than a solid hour of digging, shovelling, raking, and castle-making, they had to be dragged home for dinner! [Sidenote: Baby C needs a new name! At 20+ months old, *Baby* is no longer completely appropriate…sob, sob!]
Back at home, it was time to investigate two new card games: Old Maid and Memory (Easter treats!)
Baby C was really feeling indy with her headwear choices this day!
Old Maid turned into Memory, as we made up our own versions!
Little E decided to copy the “teacher” card in the Old Maid game, and did an amazingly accurate rendition!
I can’t think of a more delightful Easter Saturday agenda!

What were your favourite childhood card games? Old Maid was a definite favourite…although I didn’t like to lose!
And a favourite playground activity? I loved climbing on “monkey bars,” as we called them…just not too high up in the air!
