Scenes from the weekend

Easter weekend is a long one {yay!} and that means this is going to be a long post... with lots of photos! Ready for it?

 Dying eggs

 Being careful to leave them in a good long while to really soak up the colour


 Tulips in the front garden

 Walking at the lake

Blue sky + blue water = happy me

 We brought a picnic. I love a picnic, don't you?

Trekking through the woods

 Kelly, my beloved friend and old neighbour, was in town! Hurrah!

 Lots of laughs

I wish she'd never moved away. We have so much fun 

 Easter Eve at our house... look at my paint-chip Easter egg garland! I am ridiculously proud of how well it turned out

The Easter bunny came in the wee hours

And we got up a few hours later

 He hid eggs all over the garden, even on top of the ladder!

 We filled our baskets

More than once... 

Skyping with Nanny, Sawyer rocks the handlebar moustache

 At Auntie Pat's with all the cousins for more Easter fun

 Easter baskets were hidden all over the house. Dylan heads upstairs to find his in the bathtub!

The bunny hid eggs in the backyard at Auntie Pat's too

 Dylan was pulling his load around in a wagon!

"Mum, I am so 'cited about Easter! I just love it."

It was a fabulous weekend. We had lots of sunshine and warm weather. Went for green tea lemonade, got takeout curry, ate hot cross buns for breakfast. Spent time with family. Rode bikes and took long walks and had dinner with some dear old friends. Played at the park and played ball in the front yard. Slept in. Worked in the garden, planted new flowers, and cut some to bring inside and pretty up the table. Watched the brand new Doctor Who Easter special, and was properly creeped out by the aliens {but loved it nonetheless!} Decorated for Easter, coloured eggs, had a hard time falling asleep, knowing that the bunny was coming. Revelled in the fun of many, many egg hunts. Rosy cheeks and smiling faces.

I love a holiday weekend. The joy of traditions and celebrating with the ones you love. Couldn't ask for more than that really...

Hope your weekend was just as nice. Do tell!
