Easter Weekend 2017



Hoppy Easter everyone! 


Let's begin this post with my EPIC Easter mom fail!!!!  If you read my post last week, here, I was all set to go for Easter until Friday.... While Logan and I ran out to check a couch out that we were hoping to buy for the lake, I let the littles have my phone to watch a video of Miss. H's performance from the night before.  When we returned to the car, Miss. A informed us that they had seen a bunch of Easter pictures and wanted to know what they were!!!!  Can you believe my luck?!?  Not knowing what to say, we choose to ignore them and their comment.  On Saturday I spent the day running around, returning and buying all new stuff so that it looked nothing like the pictures they had seen. Sigh.  The things we do for our children  and in the name of keeping their innocence just a little bit longer.   (oh, and I also lost the Starbucks GC I purchased for my nephew, so lesson learned:  don't bother being on top of Easter).


Apart from the little hiccup above we had a fantastic long weekend.  What I love most about these holidays is that it encourages us to just be with family and do fun little things.  Our list of fun things included:

  • Coloring eggs with a friend

  • Coloring more eggs on our own

  • Having egg wars and eating our year quota of egg salad sandwiches

  • Visiting two great-grandmas, two sets of grandparents, aunt, uncle, one baby cousin, and one teen cousin via telephone 

  • An hour long Easter Egg Hunt that took us outdoor into fresh snow

  • Annual pancake and chocolate breakfast

  • Hours of games including ping pong, darts, air hockey, horse racing

  • One last snowman of the season


Logan also had an opportunity to go to his first Rush game with my dad, while the girls and I had a girls night with appetizers and a movie called Nine Lives.  I also got two runs and one Shred workouts in over the long weekend. 


I have the rest of the week off with the kiddos and I am looking forward to getting lots of spring cleaning done around the house and also taking Halie to her final dance competition over the weekend.  Hope you all had wonderful weekends with your own families. 

See you on Friday, for Fashion Friday's post.


  1. Glad you had a great Easter with your family. A very similar thing happened to a friend of mine this weekend, she was out at 10pm the night before Easter buying all new things, haha!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

    1. Oh your poor friend! That's rough, at least I had a few days warning. The things we do for our children (insert head shake). :)

  2. Sounds like a great Easter, but booo snow! Love the photos here. I am doing a recap post on Easter on my blog this week, too.

    1. I will have to check out how Easter went for your little one. I saw a few pictures on IG and she is so sweet. Many years of Easter bunny fun yet to come.
