We started ours on Friday with a visit to my parents new church. They have short little services (at least compared to what I'm used to) so it was a nice change of pace. After that we spent the afternoon hanging out lazily with Lola and Tom, then went over to my parents to work on our taxes. They have a cat of their own and lots of nice furniture so I get a little nervous taking Lola over, but it was good practice and I needn't worry, she always behaves very well. She's just the best around cats, we really lucked out with her, unless it's her brother she mostly ignores them. We enjoyed some pizza, a giant cookie and Anchorman Two after our taxes were done and hurray! Nick and I don't owe the government any money this year!
Sunday morning we had Easter Brunch at Craft Beer Market with Nicks family. What a spread! We were really impressed by how well done the buffet was, perfectly cooked Eggs Benedict and lovely rare roast beef, I even tried my first oyster (which tastes like a gulp of ocean water, briny and salty).

Edmonton is expecting huge amounts of rain in the later half of this week, something I've been dreading. I have no idea how one is supposed to take their dog outside during stormy weather and heavy rains. People must do it! I'm considering buying her a little rain coat so I don't need to give her a huge bath every time she comes inside. Ya, not looking forward to it. Luckily, today is supposed to be beautiful so we're taking her to the park tonight! Gotta enjoy the sun while it's shining!
