Last weekend, to put it simply, was PERFECT! We had so much fun this Easter weekend... I wish every weekend could be exactly the same!
Reagan had the day off from school on Friday, and Ryan had the day off from work, so we took advantage of having the entire family home together to finally dye and decorate our Easter eggs.
Unlike last year, Myers was not willing to sit still on the sidelines as the silent observer. He wanted to be a part of the action! Unfortunately, his idea of being a part of it all meant any of the following... drinking the dye, pouring the dye all over himself or the rest of the kitchen, smashing the eggs, etc. So Ryan kept Myers distracted while Reagan created her masterpieces.
We invited some friends (Reagan's boyfriend Matthew's family) over for dinner that night, and we had a fun fondue extravaganza. I kid you not, there had to be at least 10 pounds of food on the table that we dipped and dipped and dipped into our fondue feast! I'm not sure who had more fun, the kids or the grown ups!
Saturday was a GORGEOUS day, and we spent the entire afternoon in our backyard. Reagan is just like her momma... she loves the sun! We decided to pretend that we were at the beach in North Carolina, so we cranked up the beach music on our iPhones, turned on the sprinklers, filled up the kiddie pool, took a few dips in the hot tub, worked on our tans, drank a few cold ones, and had an all out beachin' good time!
Myers fell in love with playing in the sprinklers, especially since big Sissy was there helping him to have fun!
Sunday morning, we discovered that the Easter bunny had indeed come to our house for a visit. He left two baskets full of goodies for the kids, as well as he left a mess of carrot pieces on our front lawn. He also took all of Reagan's beautifully decorated eggs and hid them throughout the house!
half naked at all times!
After finding all of Reagan's eggs, we quickly got dressed to go to the Resurrection Sunday services at our church. It was a beautiful service, and Reagan was excited to see a few of her friends in attendance as well. After church, we came home to soak up the sun in our backyard once again while Myers had a nap.
Once Myers was awake, we drove over to visit with Ryan's family and enjoyed an impromptu game of baseball with all of Reagan's cousins. It was a quick visit as we had been previously invited to enjoy a backyard bbq with friends. Reagan was thrilled to go to Matthew's house, and I think that had we not needed to get the kids home and in bed, Ryan and I would have stayed all night, enjoying the company and good times that were being had by all!
Monday, Ryan had to return to work, but Reagan had the day off from school. I'll give you three guesses as to how she, Myers and I spent the day... and the first two guesses don't count!
Yep, OUTSIDE in the back yard!
If there is one thing that I realized for certain this past weekend, it is that I am soooooo ready for summer to hurry up and get here!
