Dinosaurs, Donuts, and Easter Eggs Oh My!

We may have just experienced our last cool down before Florida officially cranks up the heat through mid-late fall. Which as we all know, I'm not complaining about as I love to joke that I didn't move to Florida to be cold - ha! We spent as much time outside enjoying the perfect shoulder season weather, and even got some special time with my best girl. 

Lil' Miss and I had a mommy-daughter date on Saturday to go see the Dinosaur Invasion at Leu Gardens which was "take 2" as we tried a few weeks ago, and when we got there it was insanely packed so we decided to leave and go get ice cream. Win-win situation if you ask me! 

After the dinosaurs, we stopped at The Salty Donut to pick up some artisan donuts and a cold brew coffee for me which I'm still dreaming about. SO good! 

*They tasted just as good as they looked - AMAZING!*

After indulging in some donuts back at home, and a quick nap for Lil' Miss it was time to decorate some Easter eggs. One of my favorite traditions! Someone may have mixed up the cups for the green and the blue -  does anyone else have issues trying to figure out which tablet goes in which cup? It's SO hard! Just me? That's what I thought... 

After several "calls to the Easter Bunny" after some bad behavior this past week, he hopped through our home anyway which left a very excited little girl on Easter morning. He left her a new t-ball set including bases for the yard, an Easter puzzle, toys for the pool, a new hair bow, sidewalk chalk shaped like eggs, and an activity book with the story of the 1st Easter in it. Oh and who can forget the chocolate bunny? A classic staple! 

How was your holiday weekend?

  2. What a perfect weekend!! The mommy daughter date sounds like so much fun - I need a few more just me and Sophia days! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  3. I love the name The Salty. Great mom & daughter date!

  4. I love that you have a pool in your backyard with it being screened in. I would totally want that. What a fun weekend. We have wanted to do the dinosaur event here, but it doesn't look as cool as this one. At ours you drive around and see dinosaurs and there isn't even any plants by them. Super lame.

  5. Those donuts look SO good! Especially the one with the yummy strawberry on top. Gimmie!



  6. This looked like such a lovely Easter! Those donuts look amazing!

  8. Yay for mommy-daughter dates! Those donuts look amazing!! I love the idea of the t-ball set with bases, Zoe got a real soccer ball. She wants to pick up soccer in the fall on a local team. Add that to dance, and I might be a busy mom soon lol. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful Easter. You aren't the only one calling the Easter bunny with behavior the week of Easter. Now what are we going to use as a threat?? Christmas is too far away lol.

  9. Dinosaurs, how fun! This sounds like such a great outing for you and your daughter!

  10. What a fun outing! It's nice to live in places warm enough where being outside is almost always a good option.

  11. Oh this dinosaur exhibit looks so fun and great for kids. And oooooooo the Salty Donut looks soooooo good!! And the Easter videos brought back fond memories of when I was a kid and colored eggs. I hope you had a great holiday!
