I even took it one step further. Last night I had told Noah that if they pulled off a win we would take him to M Den today to get a new Wolverines shirt as his had been recently moved into the 'too small' category. I couldn't let my Little Victor go to school without sporting his colors tomorrow. So we packed up after lunch and headed to the mall where Noah ended up with not one new shirt, but two. And of course that meant Kayla needed one, too.... I fortunately still had some funds left on a gift card I had gotten for Christmas that allowed me to spoil my kiddos a bit. Check us out tomorrow to see them both sporting their new duds.
Earlier this afternoon we decided to venture out to take advantage of a day that seemed particularly made for kite flying! The Cincinnati Easter Bunny (as opposed to the Singer Easter Bunny, the Farmington Hills Easter Bunny, the Fremont Easter Bunny, and the Miss Stephanie Easter Bunny, all of whom made appearances last weekend) had been kind enough to bring the kiddos their own kites that we've been promising them we could fly as soon as we got the right day for it. The sun with a good breeze was fabulous today! They did a test run in the back yard this morning and then we all trekked over to Heritage Park for a good go. I have to say, my kids are kind of kite flying experts. They both had them soaring and weaving. Mikayla cracked me up as she kept instructing Cinderella (who is on her kite) how to fly. We did end up with a bit of a tangled mess (Cinderella and Sponge Bob kind of got into it and its hard to determine who 'won) but we all had a great time doing it.
And lest I forget, this morning we chowed down on the Polish Cream Cheese Coffee Cake I created yesterday to celebrate National Coffee Cake Day. I think my Polish great Aunts would be proud :)
Empanadas tomorrow along with tons of Michigan celebrating. Prepare to be a-maize-d (hehehe). Until then...
I wish there was a 'smell' button on the internet that I could share this with all of you...
Coffee Cake, Cream Cheese, Coffee Cake, brown sugar and pecans - what could possibly be better?
Proud of their M Den loot
Ready to go fly our kites
The pink is Kayla, that little blip far in front of her is Cinderella :)
