Our Good Monday

As I wrote in a previous post, Conn is not off on Good Friday. But, he does get the following Monday off. It has been this way for the past 8 years, so it is nothing new for us. This has forever been known to us as our Good Monday. We have never really done that much except recover from Easter services, but this year we decided to plan a special day with the girls. We started off by letting them open their Easter baskets and having an egg hunt in the backyard (it was their 4th one). We then went to the Children's Museum in Houston. We had never taken the girls before and they had a great time. It was decked out for a special theme of The Magic School Bus for the month of March. To top the day off, we went and ate at the Downtown Aquarium and rode the train around the restaurant. On the way home, Lily asked if we could stop and rent a movie. She and Conn went in and came back out with Dora, Puppy Power. We were talking about what to do for dinner and Lily says that she would like for her and Maggie to have a Pancake and Puppy Power Night. So...that is exactly what we did! :) Thank you Lord, for giving our little family such a Good Monday!

Kathryn- Yes, that little house is in our backyard. It came with the house when we bought it. All the colors match our actual house. Isn't it precious?! :)
