The Egg Hunt



On Saturday, one of our neighborhood MOMS clubs put on an Easter egg hunt at a park. It started at 10am on a cold, dreary morning when we all slept in. We pretty much missed the hunt. When we arrived at the field, the last group was scrambling for the last set of colorful eggs. I quickly grabbed one and tossed it at Ali’s feet. She was not getting the concept so she had no sense of urgency. And thankfully, because she had no idea what an Easter egg hunt is, she wasn’t disappointed that she only got 1 measly butterfly eraser.


She was much more interested in “slide!” Her favorite playground activity.


She’s also an excellent climber now and determined to climb structures designed for kids 5-12. (Jason is spotting her.)

She’s fearless, my girl.

Bike Route


It’s a rather boring Friday at work (I LOVE the quiet days right after deadlines) and I’ve been playing around on Google Maps and This map shows the bike route we took the other day, which I just learned is 3.4 miles. Good to know because we were over-estimating—guessing more like 5 or 6 miles.


We are so blessed to live in a neighborhood nestled in Nashville’s biggest urban park with miles and miles of paved greenway trails along the Cumberland River. Above, I enhanced the park with green tint in photoshop and made our bike route blue.
