Did anyone else luck out with a beautiful Easter weekend? Ours was lovely and with both girls home on Good Friday, it felt like an extra long weekend to boot. We started the weekend off with dying eggs.
Does anyone else blow the insides out? You poke a hole in each end with a safety pin, insert a little straw and blow! I remember doing this with my mom growing up and the girls thought it was hilarious.
Don’t mind her busted cheek; little bruiser took a tumble into the stairs.
I love all the natural Easter egg coloring tricks I’ve seen (beets, blueberries, turmeric), but we used the $1.99 dye kit and it provided us with 2 solid hours of fun!
I also worked through the sourdough process and have surprisingly really taken to using my new kitchen scale. We spent the afternoon planting the garden, washing pollen off the porch, and jumping through the sprinkler for the first time this season.
It was a Good Friday indeed.
Saturday we attended the cutest Bunny Brunch and Egg Hunt I’ve ever seen.
I’m always in awe of how talented my friends are with party and home design. I mean, just look at the detail of this tree!
We’re at such a fun age where the kids can just take off to play while the adults chit chat.
The adults chatted and sipped Bloody Marys, then the Easter Bunny himself showed up!
After that, 30 something excited kids took off on a mad dash to hunt eggs. It was such a wonderful morning!

Later that afternoon back at home, Mema stopped by for a couple hours so we set up camp in the backyard (complete with bonfire) and roasted all the little yellow Peeps we could find.
That night we left out carrots and water for the Easter Bunny. Sunday morning we were thrilled to find his tracks on the floor and baskets filled with goodies.
We had just enough time to hunt for the sparkly eggs he’d hidden around the living room before changing and making our way to church for a great message and incredible music. The rest of the afternoon we laid low, conquered the laundry, and set up for a week of spring break! All in all, a pretty incredible Easter weekend.
Do you have any Easter traditions?
I remember growing up the Easter Bunny would hide eggs all over our main floor. It was always a mad dash between my bro and me to see who could find the most Cadbury Eggs. (My memory tells me I always won… would you agree, bro? ;)) I remember one year we found one hiding inside the dining room table… in October. Needless to say, no one ate that one!
