G is for Gorgeous Day! (and Gigantic bubbles)

Today is an Instagram day.  I've just discovered it and I am absolutely loving it.  It was a beautiful day in our hometown today.  The sun was out, but it wasn't too hot.  It wasn't too windy.  And we enjoyed some outdoor fun.  This morning we went for a walk and found that someone's sprinkler system was malfunctioning and had created the best puddle.  So, we came home, donned the rain boots and went back for some splashing.  Even Bella, our dog, got in on the fun!

Later in the afternoon/evening, we got out one of Gigi and Papa's Easter gifts - a giant bubble making wand! It worked really, really well and we all had a lot of fun making gigantic bubbles in our front yard.  It took Bean a few tries, but she finally got the technique (lay the wand completely flat and then pick it up very slowly) and she got some HUGE bubbles on her own:

This evening, we decorated some eggs.  I used the idea from Wildink Press to bake the eggs in the oven rather than boil them and it was so easy!  I mixed up some vinegar, water and food coloring and then we decorated them with colored markers and glitter glue pens.  They aren't exactly museum-quality pieces, but Bean had a blast!

That's it for this gorgeous day!  We enjoyed all parts of it and are looking forward to fun visit to Grandma and Grandpa's house tomorrow and maybe even a visit from the Easter Bunny tonight (although the basket has yet to be built...better be getting on that soon...its getting late!).

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter and a great week ahead!
