Vishu and shopping hours

I remember last Wednesday evening (14 Apr) so well. A long day at work followed by a high decibel evening with the girls, late evening work calls after the girls were in bed and a presentation for the next work day to be completed. In between all this I realised that before going to bed I needed to arrange our Vishu kani for next morning. A quick mental check and I realised that I had forgotten to pluck some bunches of the lovely Forsythia bushes which grow all over the place at this time of the year. Thank God for the new opening hours(07-24 hrs) of our friendly neighbourhood supermarket Rewe I got some lovely bunches of yellow roses which looked so good.
Plus I enjoyed the quiet of the close to midnight shopping, all the shopping aisles were on display only for me. It was so nice to wake up hubby and girls next morning to the beautiful display in promise for good luck hopefully for the rest of the New Year.

Picnic time

This time around it was little rabbit's daycare group who organised a picnic with the whole family to the beautiful Luisen Park in Mannheim.

The day started early Saturday morning when all of us met at the entrance of the park and then after a nice little trek went on a Gondola ride covering the stream that runs through the park.

Of course after all this the kids were quite hungry and then we all decided that it was time to sit down and enjoy a nice long picnic.
All the little ones from the daycare got a nice folder with tons of pictures and documentation about what they had done in the last weeks. Looks like everybody was just waiting for spring to start planning trips like this one.

Spring time at last!

Yeah it seemed like it took forever this time around for Spring to arrive. But finally it is here and we had lovely weather for most of the long Easter weekend. Little bunny had lots of fun hanging out some beautifully painted Easter eggs. I learnt how to empty the contents of an egg and get it all primed and ready to be painted. might think is easy but try it out yourself and see what I mean.
