We had a wonderful Easter weekend. The sun was shining and we used every second of the 4 days together. We went to Tierpark on Friday and saw crocodiles and manatees. Amelie was in heaven with the crocodiles! Luckily we chose to go to Tierpark and not the central zoo which we normally go to. For some reason some crazy lady decided it would be a good idea to go swimming with the polar bears and jumped into the bear enclosure at feeding time. She was obviously mauled pretty badly but what concerns me more is all the kids that were watching. Thank goodness we were not there. (By the way it was not Knut!)
On Saturday Meredith's fabric from the Bee Inspired group arrived and as Luis and the girls were busy in the garden I set to and made these blocks. I think I used every inch of fabric that I received. It was certainly a close call for the final block.
On Sunday Amelie was mysteriously struck down by fever and headache. So Luis and Hanna headed off to church without her. But she perked up in the afternoon and we had an easter egg hunt. Hanna scoffed her chocolate in seconds flat. Her mouth oozing chocolate. She definitely has my genes. Amelie on the other hand continued to hide and re-hunt her chocolate all afternoon and evening. In the end she never ate a single bite. Sometimes I wonder if we are related!
Monday we went off to Rheinsburg. A fantastic Schloss with lakes and grounds. We had a lovely picnic with friends and lazily strolled around the grounds. I took a stack of hexagons with me and managed to finish off another couple of blocks!
So all in all a perfect 4 days! Hope you all had a great time too.
