"jumpy things and slides"

since i am new to the whole blogging world i though it appropriate to share the events of this past weekend it being Easter and all..

our Easter celebration began the weekend before last at Clinton's annual Easter egg hunt. Todd was out of town on his big manly camping trip, so mom and I took ML ( I refer to her a lot like this, mostly because im lazy) to Traceway park for the hunt. We were a little late of course so we were walking up just as ML's age group, children 0-2 was beginning to "search" for eggs. basically all they did for this age group was section off about 50 yards of flat gross and threw candy field eggs out. well, as most of you know i have a little competitive side in me so i was like dragging Mary Logan, yelling to her "grab those, and those HURRYYY" well about 30 seconds later it was over. and alll Mary Logan had on her mind was the "jumpy thing and slides" so that is what we did. since she was so preoccupied, i took it upon myself to open up all her eggs to see what was inside. i got about 1/3 of the way through the eggs when i came across one that was different.. it didnt make a noise when i shook it. so i opened it as fast as i could and when i saw the little white folded sheet of paper i knew. the paper said "CONGRATULATIONS.. YOU HAVE WON THE GOLDEN PRIZE" i jumped up from the place on the grass where i was now very comfortable and ran over to my mom and screamed "SHE WON!!" my mom and i were so excited, im pretty sure neither of us have either won anything in our lives and now Mary Logan won the golden egg when she was 2! i ran over to show ML and i dont think it fazed her one bit, she could careless about this moment that had just happened. so we finally dragged her out of the jumpy thing long enough to walk over to the blue tent to pick up her prize. they handed us her prize and as i, of course opened up everyone around us "oooo"ed and "ahhh"ed and Mary Logan darted straight back to the slide. oh well atleast one of us was excited. The week continued with more easter fun! Mary Logan's school had their Easter parties on Thursday. She got gobs of candy and had lots of fun with her friends! Her Popppy and Gran brought by their Easter gifts that night and she was really happy to see them and have them play with her on her swing set. Saturday night we had a going away party for our aunt Ashley and uncle Davis at a restaurant in C-Town where i pretty sure ML sat down for a total of 5 minutes the entire time we were there. Afterwards we went back to Gigi's house to dye easter eggs. ALWAYS fun with a 2 year old.. Sunday morning FINALLY came after a lot of threats that if someone didnt do as her mommy and daddy told her to do that the Easter Bunny wasnt going to come and see her and bring her presents, he did! she decided that she "could like him", thank goodness because she still says she "can't like santa clause". after seeing what the Easter Bunny had brought we loaded up and went to early church, we needed to get back early to get lunch ready. Gigi, Ashley and Davis came over after they got out of their church and had a very delicious lunch with us. TODD CLARK'S INFAMOUS RIBS (wink, wink) and MOLLY CLARK'S INFAMOUS POTATO SALAD, baked beans, and bread, it was yum. after eating, we had an easter egg hunt, starring none other than Mary Logan Clark! It was a very fun filled day, we were very happy that we got to spend so much time with Ashley and Davis before their big adventure to South Carolina.
