Whew, what a weekend! It was beautiful and relaxing and full.
Friday the Hubs was off, so he got to spend some time with the fam and with Quinn playing disc golf. It was a nice surprise, as I didn't expect him home that day! :)
Saturday was full of playing outside in the pretty weather and preparing for the next day. We cooked out that evening and had Ginge & Donnie over for a much belated birthday dinner. I recently "spiffed" up our screened in front porch so we can eat out there, so we all sat out there and really had a relaxing evening.
Sunday was Easter, and we are working on trying to make it special and meaningful for our family. Shaun and I have done a variety of fasting for Lent in previous years (that's a whole 'nother post for another time) and would like to eventually incorporate it to be a family thing... so we want to start making a tradition of Easter being that special day when we celebrate Christ's resurrection and the breaking of our fast. Anyways, all that said, we did decide to do Easter baskets as part of that tradition, to signify the celebration and the gift of grace.
The actual gifts were not so "spiritual." ;) We gave Atticus a lion bubble maker and Em a Strawberry Shortcake computer game, along with loads of chocolate candy for the both of them. I love this pic because if you look closely, you'll notice the respective gifts did not go to who we planned them for. Hee!
I didn't get a good pic of the three kiddos in their Sunday best, so I'm planning on hitting the Botanical Gardens next weekend and doing pretty spring pics.
Here's some remaining pics from our weekend! The kids LOVED the bubble maker- thanks to the Dollar General for that one!
