Easter 2011




We decided to go to Easter service on Saturday afternoon this Easter. A little different, I know, but definitely the best thing this year. We were able to have a relaxing Easter morning ~ checked out our Easter baskets, and had an Easter egg hunt in the yard complete with Mexican confetti eggs! We had brunch at Ryan's parents house later in the afternoon ~ great Easter :)

Planting our Garden

We planted our garden today.
Ryan and the kids pulled the weeds and prepped the garden this afternoon - Ryan also cut back some of our landscaping and fixed up the yard. Once finished we all went out to our local farmer's market and picked out the fruits and vegetables that we wanted to plant.
We got tomatoes, green beans, okra, cantaloupe, green onions, white onions, strawberries, green bell peppers. Then we laid them all out to figure out where they should be planted and then got to work getting them into the ground.
I made some garden stones to mark them and it looks great :)

Family Game Night

We love Family Game Night!

We've always played games with our kids but tonight was the first time we got to play a board game that my family used to play when I was younger. We finally got to play Sorry :)
Super fun family game - kids are getting better at strategy - Little Man won tonight but we all had a great time!
