I made us these placecards to go on the table for our meals.
I spent a lot of time cooking on Saturday. We planned to attend a local church on Sunday so I knew I wouldn't have time to cook that morning before we left. I decided for us to eat our Easter meal on Saturday night and go out for lunch on Sunday. That worked out really well. Late that afternoon I got the food in the oven and while David and Ben rested I took Cruz next door for a little swim.

When the baskets were complete we went out to the back yard and filled them with grass.

I woke up on Sunday morning not feeling well. I didn't have fever but I felt terrible. But, when you have little ones the show must go on, right?
the boys Easter gifts
Most all of it was from David's mother. She mailed it to the team and they brought it down to the boys.
Easter morning breakfast
It was a last minute idea and I think next year I'll make these for Good Friday instead. It was a great visual reminder of the Easter story for the boys to see and gave us another opportunity to talk about it during our meal.
After breakfast we got dressed and took family photos.

The rest of the day we just laid low. Some neighbor kids invited Cruz over to play in their new kiddie pool and he had a blast being with them. We ate leftovers for supper, took showers, and then before bedtime we squeezed in a holiday tradition of watching Charlie Brown.
excited about watching "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!"
Happy Easter everyone! We hope you had a fun weekend too.
