We Braved the Throngs to See the Bunnies

We got our butts in gear this morning to head over to Canadian Tire. Each year they have a display of animals for Easter. I can't remember if we went last year - Cooper would have still been pretty tiny. I think we have taken Carter once or twice before.

It was too bloody cold and windy to go to the sheep farm to see the baby lambs and other critters out there so we opted for Canadian Tire. It was packed. I took these few pictures but it was nearly impossible to get any pictures of my children near or holding a critter.

Thee Bunny...those are Carter's hands on the right

We did let Cooper touch it but we were afraid he'd squish it to death.
He sort of just poked at it with his little fingers but we could tell he wanted to grab it!

After we escaped the madness, we went to Tim Horton's. All the stores were so crazy busy that it was actually a good time to go there. Not overly crowded and not too much for lineups. Here is a picture of Cooper at Timmy's since I couldn't take any of him at Canadian Tire.

Seconds after we pulled out of the Tim Horton's parking lot, Cooper was asleep. Carter followed suit shortly after that so we cruised around for awhile. We came home and ever-so-fortunately the boys stayed sleeping when we brought them in the house...yay naptime for me!

After nap time I needed to go to the grocery store to get stuff to make a salad to bring to Cindy's tomorrow. The traffic was crazy all over town - most stores were closed yesterday and will be tomorrow so people go all ape-shit rushing to the stores, myself included! I grabbed a few things and it surprisingly didn't take forever to check out of there.

I came home and Dad was here to visit. I put away the groceries. Chris was re-watching Casino Royale since he zonked out watching it last night. I got to catch up on the parts I missed too. After the movie I cooked up some chicken nuggets and homemade French fries. I actually talked Chris into peeling and cutting the potatoes while I started cooking the chicken. The boys seem to love finger-food. I nuked some kernel corn and that was mostly what Cooper ate.

After supper we watched "The Holiday". Both boys fell asleep before the movie ended. The movie was good. Even Chris liked it. The Easter Bunny showed up shortly after the boys went to bed. There is a trail of plastic eggs filled with jelly beans from Carter's room to the living room and a basket of fun goodies for both boys on top of the TV stand. Now I'm half blogging and half watching MAD TV and I'm already ready to crash. I'm hoping to get both boys to church in the morning.
