Easter is a totally over-commercialized holiday. While the Easter bunny, Easter baskets, and finding eggs are totally RAD, we need to be so careful to not make those wonderful traditions Easter. They are NOT Easter.
I love this video. It is simple and exhibits the meaning of Easter. The true, beautiful meaning. I highly recommend that you watch this. At first it does not seem spiritual in nature and then it all makes sense.

Easter is upon us, and I really do NOT like all of the horrible candies that are available commercially. They are full of chemicals that are seriously unhealthy and cause behavior changes in children. Alright, I'm off my soap box. We decided to make our own treats still full of lots of sugar :) but without chemical carcinogens, synthetic fats, toxic preservatives, etc. OK, OK. I know I said I was off the soapbox.
I tried to give Atticus an adult, masculine apron. He declined for a small, pink princess apron. I said, "I offered the the other because I didn't think you wanted pink" to which he replied, "Mom, pink is cool!" That's right, Buddy. Own it. Love it.

While visiting my family where I grew up in Palos Verdes, CA, I had to take my kids to the ocean. We went to R.A.T Beach (Right After Torrance) where you can find tide pools at low tide on the south end. The sun was shining, and the kids were so absorbed with exploring and playing with rocks, sticks, shells whatever they could find. I spent the time talking to my mom whom I have not seen in far too long. It was the most refreshing day! It was amazing how sometimes just stopping, relaxing the mind, and being IN your surroundings is so therapeutic.
Children don't need electronics or toys to self entertain. They were so content and didn't want to leave.

Alright, so I haven't blogged in like 3 years. I am sure my 5 followers are not too disappointed. Here's to new beginnings!
Hunter spent 1/2 the day in the infirmary with a stomach ache. Did you even know there is an infirmary at Disneyland??
