Easter Weekend Overload

I hope y’all had a blessed Easter weekend!  We spent so much time with our family and friends, and had a wonderful time!  On Friday, we traveled to visit my grandparents for the day.  Four of my sisters came too, including my sister with her son, W.  It was a great surprise that she came!  Thanks for making the trip, A!  It was so fun having many of the sisters in town for the weekend, since they were home from school.  We missed you, K!

While we visited my grandparents on Good Friday, the hubs stayed home and tended to his grill, to prep his pork butt for bbq, for our friends to visit that night.  It was a great time, with about ten of our friends, a little rain didn’t hurt anyone.

Early Saturday morning, we headed out for an Easter Rock Hunt (after finding eight, you traded in your rocks for different prizes (depending on the color of your rock)).  It was a little wet, but about noon it cleared up, and stayed clear the rest of the weekend!  After naps, we headed over to my parents for an Easter Egg Hunt, egg dying and a cook-out.  The sisters were also part of the hunting, as my mom hid money in some of the eggs.

You know I loved the PINK speckled egg!

The girls were wiped out by Easter morning, but we still dragged them to church a little early Sunday morning.  We had to get back to start prepping and decorating for the Easter lunch we were hosting, for our family (both my parents and sisters, and the in-laws came).  You’ll notice from the pics, that W was not too excited about pictures.  I think she perked up just a little, once the rest of the extended family arrived.  🙂

Are you serious, y’all? ANOTHER Easter Egg Hunt? This is getting old…  Haha.

We had to find the real ones quick, so we could prep the deviled eggs.

Told you our weekend was jam-packed!  So sorry to weigh you down with pics, but I just couldn’t resist!
Oh, wait, you want more?  Haha.  
Here are some from last year, can’t believe how quickly my girls are growing up!

And here are a few of my Easter decorations…

These Jibbitz were in W’s Easter basket. If you don’t know what they are,
they’re tiny characters you pop into the holes of Crocs.

And now, they’ll be stored for next year.
Bring on summer!

Hope y’all have a great start to your week!
