Our Easter was really nice and relaxing. We stayed here- no traveling. The weather was beautiful- 70! Church was great and we were home at noon. My brother and his wife came from San Francisco. We actually don't see them very often because they're really busy but we were very happy they could be with us. We had a typical Easter dinner- ham, funeral potatoes, peas and carrots, rolls, Swedish Sparkling Cider, Fruit salad, and a chocolate silk pie. Yum yum. Seriously, the pie is really good and it's store bought! Check your grocery store's frozen section and look for the Claim Jumper Chocolate Silk Pie. So good. The Easter Bunny came in the morning and left a little bit of candy and a few little toys things. Then after dinner, we had an Easter Egg hunt. The girls had a blast! It was nice to do it in our backyard this year. For the past few years, we've had dirt and rocks as our landscaping but now we've got grass and plants and it's really nice. We all just relaxed outside while the kids played. I'm telling you, it was very very typical and relaxing. Just right. We were just missing a few more family members . . . Maybe next year.
Here are the kids in their Easter church outfits.
I for some reason didn't get any pictures of them actually doing the egg hunting but I think my brother did. So maybe I'll be able to post a few more Easter pics when I get them.
