Anywho, our Easter weekend started out Thursday night with some Easter egg dying...
And then on Good Friday we took a little trip to the NC Zoo with Grandma...
Also, just note to self... as it turns out, Good Friday is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year for the zoo. I had no idea! Won't be back on another Good Friday either.
Friday night we took Grandma to our favorite burger spot and we all enjoyed. They have 1 burger there called the "Big Kahuna"-- it has pineapple, bacon, cheese, BBQ sauce, and sport peppers. Baby Joel LOVES it!! I crave the burger and sweet potato fries like it's nobody's business. Extra sport peppers of course because Momma LOVES spice!
Then Saturday we all went to the gym together and I got the pleasure of enjoying my very first water aerobics class. I'm trying really hard to continue working out through pregnancy-- and it has been REALLY hard. I spent the first 20 weeks of pregnancy puking my brains out and battling daily migraines... I'm finally beginning to feel better, and now my cumbersome belly and my tiny bladder are causing some issues. I'm gonna continue to do what I can, but towards the end, I'm thinking water aerobics will be an excellent fit! After our work out we headed to grab some lunch and then we took Grandma out to our very favorite ice cream spot that evening.
Then came EASTER! The boys got modest Easter baskets with new Seeds CD's and some candies, and then we got to work making some resurrection rolls before church.
Then of course we headed to church- I had the great pleasure of teaching in the toddler class on Easter because I do that the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. Of course Easter in the toddler room is extra special because all of the kiddos are SO dolled up and dressed so sharply!
After church we hosted Daniel's family for lunch... when I say "we hosted", I really mean it was just our house, my mother-in-law took care of everything else which was really quite lovely since I got back home late from teaching Sunday school. And then the boys got to have a little Easter egg hunt with their cousins.
Hope that you all had a FANTASTIC Easter weekend and that even amongst the chaos and the busyness of what we often turn the holiday into, that you reflect and remember what Easter is truly about!! Happy Easter friends!
