Then it was time for the last Friday hockey session until the fall. DD and DH had fun wandering all around the rink again and again. That and watching the zamboni (ice cleaner) are DD's favourite things to do at the arena.

On Saturday, DD and I had an adventure! DH needed us out of the house for a bit to get some work done, so DD and I went to the mall. This was DD's first time without a stroller and her first time experiencing a toy store being able to walk around. She really loved the giant stuffed toys and kept petting them and showing them to her teddy bear. We also visited a clothing store and she spent most of the time trying on different pairs of sparkly sunglasses. :)
After a few hours it was time to head home for lunch and a not-nap. That's my description for when she hangs out mostly quietly in her crib until we get her up. She doesn't nap, but she does get some rest. Then we journeyed out to a maple sugarhouse nearby. I pulled in to the wrong place first, but the farmer there was nice enough to let DD see the cows. That might be her favourite farm animal. She was a little scared of how big they were though. The sugarhouse was another mile down the road and we found it and had a great tour of the process. There were also 3 horses to see and DD wasn't up to petting their noses, but she was very interested. She did feed the chickens and wasn't scared of them at all.
Finally it was time to sample the maple syrup and DD wanted all she could get. Good thing it's relatively healthy and she can't quite manage to drink out of a cup without assistance yet. After that is was home again, home again for supper and bath!
And some stitching time for Mama!
Sunday morning dawned sunny and warm and we all got up together so DD could investigate her Easter goodies and help DH and I find out Easter bunnies. We had an egg hunt outside afterwards and shared the spoils. After DD's nap we decorated the bunny cake that I found here.
Mine did not look that good, but it looked good enough. DD had fun eating the strawberries and adding a third eye to the bunny, as well as adding freckles by dipping her finger in the frosting. :) It was fun and pretty good cake for being relatively healthy.
Back to stitching, I don't think I ever shared the afghan I'm stitching the dragonlets and the owls on, so here it is!
I've been helping DH beat Zelda: Twilight Princess HD lately, so I haven't been stitching as much as I would like. Hopefully that will change over the next few days.
Happy Stitching everyone and thanks for your patience with my long post!
