Easter Part II

Well the egg hunts on Saturday were fun but we woke up early on Easter Sunday so we could enjoy what the bunny left....
 And she loved the house that turns into a lady bug that grandma sent her. Nice job Mom!
Naturally we had to hunt the eggs left in the house...surprise! There is candy inside!!
 There were so many eggs she needed help from her babies.
 And of course some of that candy needed to be eaten...
 She even tried to eat the ridiculously large eared chocolate bunny but found it rather hard since she's still missing those two front teeth.
So it was time to get decked out in our Easter finery.
 Naturally Alexa had to come with us to church in her matching dress. They looked lovely.
 And here is my personal favorite. I love that sweet face.
After church I had a surprise for her. Since this was to be the last day of her spring break and sadly Mommy had to work that whole week I had planned a little get away. We drove an hours south to Great Wolf Lodge. I'm so glad we did.
 This was as we entered the park and I don't think either one of us was fully dry again for the next 36 hours.
 Between the wave pool, large and small slides, water tower that dumps gallons of water as you walk beneath it and all the other pools there was really no where to get dry. And who wanted to anyway!
Not my Lexie Lou!!
At night they have a show and story time and they invite all the kids down in their jammies to help them wind down....which it did.
Luckily Lexie was the third one in line to meet...I can't remember her name but Lexie was thrilled!
Needless to say we both passed out. But the next morning Lexie woke up ready to swim some more!
 As an extra treat I let her have an chocolate Easter egg cake for breakfast. I didn't bring a fork so while I was looking for something for her to do she solved the problem for me. She used her face!
Day 2 was more fun in the water.
 We both loved the wave pool especially the crazy waves.
But the big slides ended up being the biggest hit of the day. I am sure I climbed those 89 steps at least 20 times while we were there. But this smile made every step a pleasure.
 She surprised us both at how good she was at crossing the lily pads,
 and she even went down the slides on her own by day two.
 Finally it was time to dry off and drink something other than water splashed in your face.
 We did have to make one more stop in their craft center to make a little bag to remember our time.
 And to make some new friends.
 But at last we were heading home. She chatted the first 40 minutes of the 1 hour 10 minute drive. It got quite and I looked back to find my little mermaid passed out.
So I'd say a good time was had by all.
Happy Easter Everyone!!
