Easter Weekend 2017

Happy Tuesday!!  After a long weekend, I finally feel like we are back in our routine.  We had a wonderful Easter weekend with our close friends and family.   We started our weekend off by attending the Good Friday service at our church.  This service is probably my favorite service of the year.  I love having the time to simply reflect on the meaning of Easter.

Saturday morning we got up and headed to the park for an Easter Egg hunt and picnic with some of our closest friends.

We had a smaller hunt for the little kids…

When we got home, the girls had to dye eggs, of course.

Finally Easter morning arrived.

We had to have our annual Easter morning picture (thank goodness it was not raining this year!!)

After the church service we headed over to our friend’s house for a yummy brunch.

The kids had a lot of fun cracking confetti eggs on everyone’s heads.

And because it’s Easter, one more family picture…

We ended the Easter festivities with the girls opening their Easter presents (bag for swimming, beach towel, cute headbands, new shorts, socks, and an arctic cup with their initials on it).

Sadly this is the only picture I got – huge problem for a blogger mom.

That is a wrap for our busy weekend.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

  1. What a great weekend and Easter you all had! I love that you were able to spend some time with family and close friends. Great idea with the Artic cups with their names on them! I am stealing this for stockings this coming year!
