Hi there! It's been awhile since we've done an actual post, so I thought I would do one tonight. We had a very nice Easter weekend. I was off from work for a few days, which was very nice (and needed!). My step-father, David, arrived from New York on Thursday and spent the weekend with us. He left this morning. We had a very nice time with him.

On Friday we went to the zoo with some friends. Casey and I took Gillie to the zoo when she was about 4 months old, so this was actually her second trip, but she actually noticed some of the animals this time! The animals had to moving to gain her attention, though. She liked watching the seals (I could watch them forever myself) and the chimpanzees. Those were the ones that were really on the move. We had beautiful weather for much of the day, but did get rained on at the end of the day. We were all soaked, but Gillie stayed dry! We got her a little poncho to wear so she didn't get wet. Overall, we had a very nice time at the zoo.

On Saturday, we went out to lunch and did a little shopping. Grandpa David bought Gillie a new outdoor play set, but we had to order it since the store didn't have any in stock. It looks fun...has a slide and parts for climbing on/under. We'll definitely post pictures as soon as it arrives and Casey puts it together! Gillie tested out something similar at her friend's house, and she loved going down the little slide, so I'm sure she'll love this as well!

Sunday morning we hid a few Easter eggs for Gillie to find. They were pretty much in plain sight, but we wanted to see what she would do. She found them right away! She figured out how to open them, too! She loved the marshmallow candy that was inside! Sunday afternoon we had a very yummy Easter dinner with some of our friends, and we did an outdoor egg hunt. Gillie did pretty well gathering up her eggs again. She was very excited when she found the "gold" egg that had money in it...it made noise when she shook it!

So, we had a very nice weekend...it just went by too quickly! I did not want to go back to work today! Here are a few pictures for you all. Hope that everyone had a nice Easter!
