Friday favorites

Happy Good Friday!  Are you all ready for Easter?  As promised, I'm sharing my Friday favorites with you!

Number 1:  Coloring Easter eggs
I love doing this with the kids each year.  Heck, I would probably still do it even if I didn't have kids! And this year, we had no spills!

Number 2:  Bald eagles
I love bald eagles!  Where I live, you may catch a glimpse of one every once in a while, but it's definitely a rare occurrence.  Well this year I have been treated to several sightings!  2 eagles have been hanging out in a tree across from our daycare.  Then yesterday, I saw them in MY neighborhood!  We live right next to a river, so I'm sure there is all sorts of good eatin' for them!  I'm hoping they will stick around for a while.  Wish I could have gotten better pics, but they were really high in the tree and it was very cloudy out.

Number 3: Lost My Name book
Have you heard about these books?  Each book is personalized according to your child's name.  The letters of their name lay out the adventure the book takes you on.  I was skeptical at first (since I learned about it through an ad on Facebook), but I am very happy I took the chance.  The books are ADORABLE (cute story, beautiful graphics) and I love how it is a personalized story for my child. They are well worth the price and mine shipped really quickly...I think I received them 4 days after I placed the order.

Number 4:  This tree!  

Number 5:  Date date with Nick
My son has been asking to have a "special" day with me and today is the day!  He has requested we go see Zootopia, have lunch at Red Lobster, and get ice cream.  So that's the plan!  I love being able to spend some 1 on 1 time with my boy!

That's it for today folks!  Hope you all have a great weekend and a lovely Easter!

Linking up with Andrea for Friday Favorites!
