We Had Such a Nice Time

The company has all gone home. Today it's just me & Logan at home, Mike will be at work until late. It feels weird not having anyone else here - especially my little 4 year old cousin Dakota. It was such a nice Easter to be around some family. Everyone got here safe & sound and we got a lot of visiting in. Logan did really well too. He warmed right up to his Great Aunt Cris.
On Friday we (my Aunt Gail, Uncle Jim, cousin Dakota, me and Logan) went down to the Aquarium in Seattle. Dakota had a fun time and Logan seemed to enjoy it also. The sea otters were extra playful that day so they were really fun to watch. They were swimming around on their backs and act like they were cleaning each other. After the aquarium we went over to Alki Beach - it was pretty windy out though so we didn't stay too long.
On Saturday the rest of the visitors showed up. My Uncle Dean, Aunt Cris, and cousins Joel & Janel drove up from Salem, OR. We got a lot of visiting in and prepared for Easter that night. We dyed some eggs and made a trap to catch the Easter bunny. We did catch him on Sunday but he had turned into a stuffed one! He left all of us lots of candy and some toys for the little ones.
Sunday was a beautiful day - the weather was wonderful. The Easter dinner turned out - everything was delicious! We all stuffed ourselves. Logan got to enjoy his first chocolate Easter bunny. He wasn't too sure what to do with it but Great Uncle Jim helped him out. He didn't make too much of a mess at first but when we took him out of the high-chair he had chocolate stuck in the front of his diaper - and it was melting!! After dinner the Oregonians headed home and we relaxed for the rest of the day. After supper Mike, Logan, Dakota, and I went out in the hot tub. Logan loved watching Dakota swim around and splash him. Dakota would squirt Logan with the water toys and Logan just giggled. It was sad today when we woke up and they were gone. I guess last night Dakota told his Mom he didn't want to go home - he wanted to stay here with Logey. How cute is that?? I hope everyone had a great Easter holiday. Now I have to figure out how to get rid of all this chocolate - maybe I'll make some chocolate chunk cookies.
