We had a wonderful and fun-filled Easter weekend!  Mom and Smith came up and were our first visitors since we started the kitchen renovation.  This made for a very busy week prior to Easter for Jason and me.  We had a deadline for getting the house back together and clean.  It has taken us a long time to unpack the kitchen and get the rest of the house back to working order!  Sometimes it's nice to have a deadline to force you to get it done.  Even though I have to admit that the kitchen is still not completely unpacked, but it is mostly done.

I spent all Saturday afternoon in the kitchen cooking, and it was my first time really cooking in the kitchen.  It was fantastic!  It was so much more enjoyable to cook in a kitchen in which you want to spend time.  It just makes me happy to be in there!

We dyed eggs on Saturday afternoon, while Isla was visiting.  Sims was mostly interested in putting the eggs in the dye. 

Isla got help from her dad to decorate some eggs before dyeing them.  Alex wrote a lot of her cute sayings on them like, "I don't know."  He was nice enough to even write, "Luv you, Aunt Aggie."  She hasn't really said that one yet, but I'm sure she's thinking it!

We got up early on Easter to go to church.  We loved having the whole family with us!


The Easter Bunny visited while we were at church, and Sims was excited to see what had been left in his basket.

He received some train track accessories, steam engines from his favorite train series, and food for his kitchen.  I couldn't help but laugh when he asked me what this was.

That's not something in our regular diet around here.  I have never been a fan.

Then we had an egg hunt in our front yard, which was a hit with Sims and Isla.

After the egg hunt was over, Isla wanted to find more eggs, so Neely kept grabbing one from her basket and quickly tossing it in the grass.  That kept her entertained for a while.  Sims, however, wanted to hide the eggs.  He threw all of his eggs in the bushes, and he refused to let me get them out.  They're still there, by the way.  He threw most of them so far in the bushes only the woodland creatures will be able to get them out.  Hopefully, they like boiled eggs.

After our large Easter lunch, we headed out to Bond Park to feed the ducks, but it was too busy for the ducks to come near shore.  Instead we took a stroll and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

It was a wonderful end to our Easter weekend!  I hope you had a happy Easter as well.
