We had a wonderful Easter weekend and we hope that you all did as well. We weren’t sure how it was going to turn out since the entire weekend forecast showed that rain was coming. Sure enough it rained off and on from Friday night until Sunday afternoon.
The rain didn’t stop us though. Friday night I finished up shopping for the Easter baskets, gathering some last minute fun for the younger kids. I also found a cute Easter dress for Emma which she then transformed into her own clothing style.
Saturday, I spent lazying around until late when I put together the Easter baskets. There’s just something about playing that “Bunny” that I love! And the kids love it too!
We had a last minute invite to an adult birthday party for a friend on Saturday. I quickly threw together a cute little banner for her which we hung on the wall where we had the party. She loved it and we loved celebrating with her.
Sunday morning came with a lighter rain. The kids actually let us sleep in before grabbing their baskets to open. They found a lot of excitement in those wicker baskets which always makes me happy as well. Lots of candy they love, and some special trinkets like a stuffed My Little Pony and a Littlest Pet Shop toy for the girls. There were Star Wars bunny’s for the boys. Jackson got a mini-golf set and there were toy water guns for a little summer fun. The kids were thrilled and so are we with their happiness.
Sunday afternoon was spent in Belle Isle, where we had dinner consisting of Ham, Deviled Eggs, Broccoli, Rice, Biscuits and so much more. It was delicious!
Then we had our annual Egg Hunt. Over 300 eggs were hidden for the kids to find, all stuffed with candy. They found every one and then divided up the goods, making trades for candy they liked better and sharing with the little ones who didn’t get as many eggs are the older kids.
So as you can tell, we all had a very Happy Easter and we hope you did as well!
