We celebrated Easter yesterday with my dad and grandfather.

Lola was thrilled because it meant she got to wear her "princess dress" out of the house, in public!

Of course, we were quickly reminded that the dress sheds glitter everywhere, including in church pews and on daddies.

Lola did ... OK. She didn't last very long in the chapel. And she had a tough time with the (unfamiliar) adults who kept trying to say hi.

She did much better at my dad's house, where she had a ball finding all of the hidden Easter eggs.

And she really liked opening said eggs and finding many, many M & Ms.

It was a very nice afternoon.

We went home a little earlier than usual, perhaps. But with Ray needing to get ready to get back on the road, we just needed some family time.

And, of course, some spoiling Lola time.

Ms. Princess broke her (cheapo) tiara last week. So it was a good excuse to splurge on a new one ... and some fun jewelry as well. Er, well, the Easter Bunny did the splurging anyway.

We spent the evening basically just playing outside.

And I, personally, spent a good chunk of time laughing with (at?) my husband, who had insisted on not buying a regular ol' kite, but one of the stunt kites.

He never did really get it to fly.

But Lola had a blast nonetheless.

The weekend ended too soon. And Ray was back on the road early again this morning.

Missing him already.
