Easter in Coronado

After church, we came home and the girls colored and decorated all the eggs. We left for Coronado to have an Easter egg hunt! All the kids had a great time. The weather was fantastic, about 84 degrees. When we got there, all of the kids were in the pool swimming and it was inevitable that my kids were going to jump in. There was no stopping them, thank goodness Andrea had extra bathing suits. John was dying because it was so hot and he was just burning. I was surprised he did not complain at all. We walked down to The Hotel Del Coronado for ice cream but the the line was about 30 minutes long so we ended up not getting any. I don't think they cared because they were so looking forward to the egg hunt! We got back to the condo and the kids had an Easter egg hunt by the water. Buffy off course got the most prized eggs and Chloe didn't do too bad. Piper only got 2 because as soon as she got the first egg, she stopped and ate all the candy, and when she was done with that one only then did she started to look for more. I don't think she understands the concept of finding as much as she can. It's all about eating as much chocolate as she can before I stop her. I cannot believe how much chocolate my girls, especially Piper, had today. It's so hard to watch them eat it because I do not like candy or chocolate and the entire time I was wishing I could have their toothbrushes with me so they can brush their teeth!! I literally had to look away and keep reminding myself that it's only once for twice a year that they get to indulge. John thinks I am too strict and that I need to relax and let them have fun. I felt so guilty for letting them eat all that chocolate. Every time I look over at Piper, she was stuffing a Twix or a chocolate egg in her mouth. Oh, and after all the candies, Grandma Barbara brought out the ice cream! Needless to say, my kids were in junk food heaven!! Guiltiness aside, it's wonderful to see how much my children enjoyed themselves today. Buffy just had the best time with Mia and Paris. Chloe loves being with Elle because Elle treats her like a baby and carries her everywhere. Piper just loves chocolate! Unforgetable quote of the day by Buffy: Buffy: "Mom, why do I need to eat fruit." Jackie: "Fruit is healthy for our body." Buffy: "I like junk food." Jackie: "Buffy, what happens if we eat a lot of junk food." Buffy: "We get sick and we will get chubby." Jackie: "That's right, we won't be able to do too much if we are chubby." Buffy: "We can surf and jetski." Jackie: "Why do you say that?" Buffy: "Daddy's chubby and he can surf and jetski."
