Easter Weekend

Boy oh boy was our weekend busy. We had something to do every day over the long weekend and I hate how fast it all seemed to fly by!! We were blessed to spend time with great friends and family and celebrated with lots of great food and drinks. I wouldn't change one minute of this weekend, even the more frustrating parts!!

 We started off the weekend by celebrating Jacob's birthday on Thursday night. What party wouldn't be complete with out a TON of balloons!!

 Avari and Daddy playing on the swingset!

 Avari wanted me to do a cart wheel! I look like a fool but nailed it! HA!

 Friday morning, we got up and had a nice breakfast before getting our day started! Avari's new favorite thing is helping me crack the eggs! I think she's better at it than I am!

If you haven't tried these cookies, you should! We made these to take to our friends house and they were a hit! I even got to use my cookie press for the first time making these!

Man Talk!

 Getting ready for the canoe ride!

 I think this was one of Avari's favorite adventures from Friday! Getting to "drive".

 Well, we tried to fly a kite! Probably would have worked better if we would of had just a little bit of wind!

 Loving every minute of it!

 Gotta love a great group of friends to spend the Holiday with!
 And to wind down on Friday evening, a bonfire!!

 Everyone meet P.J. This is Avari's newest bunny from her Popo. He showed up bright and early Saturday to take her to pick it out herself!

 Saturday afternoon, Avari had a playdate with Megan! These girls are a hoot and had a blast!!

Playing Candyland!
 Megan loves to blow bubbles and Avari loves to pop them!!

We wound down Saturday evening with some good ol' BBQ and Beer. Perfect end to a perfect day!

Sunday, we were up bright and early again to get ready for Easter at my Grandparents. Needless to say, it didn't start out a very good Easter. P.J. decided to escape during the night and we spent quite some time searching for him. He was found (thank goodness since Avari's last bunny "ran away") about a block away, hiding under some wood. After that little adventure, Avari and I made a batch of cookies and headed out!

 Enjoying time with family is what it's all about!

 Vance received his birthday gift and loved it! Now's he ready to do some real hunting!!

 Isn't Lucy the cutest thing EvEr!!                                    Uncle Tank and Avari picking flowers!

 This has been a tradition ever since I was little, to build an Easter nest out of Wildflowers! I must say, here in Texas, we have to best wildflowers to choose from!!

Avari checking out what the Easter Bunny brought for her!

 Lucy loved the eggs the most!

 Vance being a goof!

Avari hunting for eggs!

 Lucy's first egg hunt at Momo's!!

Daddy trying out Avari's hula-hoop! Hehe!                    Family Easter Photo!

We are so very blessed to have had a great Easter Weekend!

Hope you and yours did too!!
