Happy Easter!!!!

Update on the Tulip: So far, it's surviving and growing. I guess in about 10 days, it will bloom (I hope it's pink!):
*********************************************************************
P's friend J was with us from Thursday to Saturday. Her mom went on a shopping trip to Italy for the weekend (it's an addiction!), and her dad is on Uncle LeRoy's Subsidized Vacation to the Land of the Sand. After picking P and J from daycare on Thursday, we went to J's house to pickup clothes and her bike.

Friday, 90% of the World's Busiest Air Base had the day off, so I took the day off from pickin' cotton, too. I planned to sleep in Friday morning, but both P and J were up at 7am sharp. After lunch, we went to the movies to see Robots. P loved it and keeps telling me she's moving to Robot City. After the movies, armed with a bag of sliced apples for the animals, we went for a walk with Crazy Dog to show J the animals in our village. There are donkeys, chickens, dairy cattle, a potbellied pig, and rabbits. I DO NOT live in the country, these are animals people have as 'pets'. We also dyed eggs...all 6 of hem. I don't have pictures because I rushed them to hurry and finish. The one thing I've learned...the quicker something gets done, the less chance for mess. We were done in about 20 minutes.

Saturday, along with the entire military population in the area with children under 10 years old, I took P and J to the Easter festivities on the World's Busiest Air Base. In an effort to ensure they would be nice and tired after the festivities (and ready for a nap), I packed P and J's bikes, and CD into the car, and parked waaayyy across base at a friend's house, so they would be forced to ride to the park. P also convinced me we needed to have a picnic at the park, so after packing snacks, we were off...

Once there, P and J participated in the Easter egg hunt, which was more like 'plastic candy filled eggs laying out in the outfield of the softball field'. They both made out pretty good, but after it was all over before the field was cleared, P and J noticed a little girl with only 1 egg in her basket, so they both gave her a few of theirs.

After the egg hunt, P rode a horse. She really loves horses and is always asking if I can find one for her to ride:
The picnic:
P almost gave me a heart attack, when she decided to use the biggest slide on the park. I tried to distract her to do something else, but she told me 'I'll be very careful and try not to break my leg'. I don't have a picture of her coming out of the slide, because my eyes were closed:
Once we returned home (my plan didn't work, they did NOT take a nap), after dinner and a bath, D stopped back to pick P up to spend Sunday with him, so here I sit, home with CD, and laundry. When she comes home this evening, this is what she'll find:
The new school term begins tomorrow, so it's back to long days, and even longer weekends, complete with the commute to Heidelberg every other weekend.
