I hope that Everyone had a lovely Easter. The boys had spring break all last week so I took the week off from work to just hang back and chill with them. When I asked them what they wanted to do for Spring Break, their answer was “Nothing.” They didn’t want to go anywhere or see anything. They just wanted to relax and unwind. I could totally deal with that! We did get out to see a movie (Cinderella – it was awesome) and the boys had a couple of play dates, but for the most part, we just chilled. I did not turn on my computer once for the entire week and all of the extra morning cuddles and lazy afternoon naps were well worth the extra work I’ll have to make up this week.
Easter this year was a big family affair at my parents’ house. My mom’s aunt, uncle and cousin arrived from Seattle Saturday night on their way to their own Spring Break destination. We had such a lovely time catching up with them (we don’t get to see them nearly enough) and they joined us for a Saturday evening barbeque, dying Easter eggs and they stayed yesterday for our egg hunt, Easter brunch and our late lunch before heading out on their own adventure. We were also joined by my brother, sister-in-law and niece as well as David’s parents, his uncle, cousins, godbrother and our good friend. And of course my grandpa, or “Papa” as the boys call him, was on hand for the festivities as well.
We had a wonderful pool party and we ate so much food that I felt like I was going to explode. It was a wonderful day and I was sorry to see it end. Here are a few more shots from my and David’s instagrams:
Unfortunately, after the egg hunt the camera seems to have disappeared and we were having such a good time that we didn’t take any more pictures. Oh well, I guess the memories of the day will just have to sustain us! Happy belated Easter!
