Our Easter Weekend

Monday, April 21, 2014

Ahh, Easter weekend was just the break in craziness we'd been waiting for. The past few weeks have been filled with lots of fun, traveling, and house guests (more on that another time) so Loren and I had been looking forward to a nice weekend at home.

Friday night we spent with some super cool friends for an evening of yummy food and fun. Unfortunately I have no photo evidence, but it was a great evening and perfect end to the work week.

Saturday we spent some time lounging around the house and running errands but also made it over to a friend's house for an Easter party. The party was fun and all the kiddos there seemed like they were really having a good time. Loren and I managed to get our picture taken with the Easter Bunny!

Easter Sunday we finally made it back to church. It was a full crowd and wonderful service. We also gave Ruby her first Easter basket. It was the cutest thing ever. The little basket had a new toy, rawhide bone, and an egg with a treat inside. She pulled all the stuff out and then chased the egg around until it finally popped open and she could get the treat inside. Loren and I had lots of fun watching her.

Later in the afternoon, we had a few people over for dinner. It was nice to celebrate the holiday with friends and family but still keep it a small enough group that I didn't pull my hair out. I kept the table setting simple (even used cutesy egg shaped paper plates) and it was a good excuse to get some fresh flowers!

We spent the rest of the evening relaxing and prepping for the work week ahead. All in all, a great holiday weekend. Hope yours was wonderful as well!

P.S. Tonight we treated ourselves to some delicious pizza from Elliott Bay Pizza since we'd given it up for lent. So good!!
