Our long weekend was full of activities. Devan and I experimented with capillary action by placing white carnations in water tinted with food colouring. It was fascinating to watch the flowers change colour. Then I taught him about mixing colours by moving the flowers around between the vases of coloured water. I was rather pleased with the results. This lesson could segue nicely into a dyeing session with yarn. Hmmm.
We took in a non-traditional event this Easter weekend—the roller derby! It was the Bad Reputations vs. the Riot Girls. I had no idea these events actually existed. There’s even more than one league in BC! It was easy to see how passionate the players and fans are about the sport and it was good fun all the way around.
Our big family dinner was on Sunday. Everyone agreed that my priorities were in the right place—even though I was behind schedule, I made the dessert first before getting the actual meal underway! It was a delectable chocolate cake with cream cheese chocolate frosting, decorated with a bird’s nest on top and snowdrop flowers made with crepe paper, floral wire and floral tape. Most importantly, there were 34 oz of chocolate in the cake, plus 1¾ cups of cocoa! This pleased my family very much.
