Easter Saturday

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Cayman's shunt revision last week put a different curve on my posting events for that Easter weekend.

We sadly could not join the Stamm's for their family festivities on Easter Sunday, but we were able to enjoy most of the day on Saturday with my family.

Here are some pictures from that day.A cheesy self portrait of us driving to Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Kary's house.


There's Cayman in the back, safely strapped in and playing with her most favorite toy.


Here's my feet, basking in the warm sun, modeling a pair of socks I knitted a few years ago.


Playing some basketball - Uncle Tyson, Daddy, and soon to be new cousin Shon {Aunt Stacey and Uncle Dan are adopting him. We are happy to have Shon in our family.}


Cayman cuddling with her Aunt Stacey.


Cuddling with Daddy. Cayman slept most of the day. She just was not feeling well.


Shon and Madison getting ready to hunt for Easter eggs.


Their Easter baskets!


A little fire pit for making smores....yum!!


My most favorite Easter tradition, egg coloring.


About five minutes into it, Madison left the table, sat down on the couch and began to cry. It was the sounds of a long day filled with fun, but no nap!!

don't take this the wrong way, but it is imperative that the handle of infant car seats is locked back when in the vehicle. I took a car seat safety class at a fire station and that was something they couldn't stress enough. There have been many decapitations due to those bars not being locked back.

Kristin,

Thanks for the tip. Normally we do put it back. We must have forgotten this time.

We took a car seat safety class also and the same rule was stressed, but I had to confess, I still don't understand why. Our instructor told us it was because if you get in a crash, something could fall on the handle bar and break it, severely injuring your child. That made no sense to me, because if something is coming at that handle with that much force, isn't that object alone going to crush the child? If anything, I would think the handle, if it can withstand the blow, would work as a guard from objects hitting the child in a crash.

Were you given any other reasons for why the handle should always be placed back?

Oh goodness! I know those sounds! Lorelai has been miserable the past few days! Still recovering from the road trip. She and Madison would be quite the pair!

Love your socks by the way :)

I am glad that even with the craziness of the week you got to spend Easter with family.

I love that you took the time to snap some photos while you were traveling!
