The Ice Cream Truck

Oh, happy day! An ice cream truck drove right by our house! $13 later...we were all happy! There's just something about hearing an ice cream truck coming down the street that is so exciting to a kid! Well, to an adult too, if I'm being honest!

Play 'n Dine Lunch

We tried out a new character meal at Hollywood & Vine today, and it was a lot of fun! It was SO HOT outside, so we were all glad to have an air-conditioned break for a while. We got to see Sofia the First, Doc McStuffin's, Jake the Neverland Pirate, and Handy Manny. Jonah was having a "moment" when Jake came to our table, which totally bummed me out, because I wanted a picture of them since he was wearing his Jake t-shirt. He was enjoying his lunch and didn't want to be interrupted! I do love this picture below of Jake photo bombing a picture of the kids as he was walking by though! I'm not a huge Handy Manny fan, but he was so much fun & especially latched onto Jonah during one of the songs. The food wasn't out of this world, but it was good & the dessert was amazing! By the time lunch was over, we were refreshed and ready for a fun afternoon.
Yep...major meltdown.
And...this is all he wanted...his food!
They ate a lot of chicken nuggets & mac-n-cheese this week!
I love this picture!
LOL! He didn't care anything about the other characters, but I'm pretty sure he's thinking, "Hey, good-lookin'!"
After his tummy was full, he was much happier!
Every 15 minutes or so, they had little dance parties with the characters. The girls loved this!
Handy Manny was really digging Jonah's little Buzz Lightyear laser gun.
I just had to take a picture of my dessert plate! (Don't worry, I didn't eat it all!) But, that little round lemon tart was amazing! And I don't like lemon stuff. The chocolate fountain at Hollywood & Vine is pretty impressive!

Strickland's Easter Egg Hunt

We went to Newcastle on Saturday morning for the Strickland's Easter egg hunt. It was kinda crazy timing since we were leaving the next day for Disney, but this is something that we always look forward to and we didn't want to miss it. The girls were so excited about it and Jonah was much more interested in hunting for eggs this year! We spent a couple hours swinging, sliding, jumping on the trampoline, eating lunch, visiting with friends & family, hunting eggs, and enjoying the chocolate fountain, before heading back home to get packed up and ready for our trip! It was definitely a quick trip and we had a lot going on, but we were so glad we came.
I LOVE this picture!!! So thankful to have our Grandparents with us on fun days like this!
All Jonah wanted to do was swing & slide, over and over!
Jonah flew down the slide and his hard head slammed right into my mouth...it hurt so bad & I instantly swelled up and got a bruise. No good!
Lookin' through their loot!
One of the highlights of the day is always getting to pick a "prize" after hunting eggs. Madison chose this cute little blue rubber chick.
And this is a true sign of how much Mackenzie is growing up...she chose this brush and comb set!
Oh, how we love G-Ma!
 
These are the cute cards they got from Poppa & Louise!
