Day 114/365 Happy Easter

So today was Easter, and while it is not my favorite holiday, it was a nice day, even with rain.
I made the trip out to the cemetery and put some of my grandma's irises and peonies on her grave.  After that, I drove up to my Mom's house and gave the kids their easter baskets.

We waited for my sister to get there, then we ate.  I'm not so fond of ham, so I mostly ate the "other stuff".

Then it was time to fill the plastic easter eggs with money and hide them.  By that point, it was raining, so the kids hunted for 101 eggs in the rain.  They each ended up with at least $30.00 from their eggs.  I think my nephew was the big winner this year with $40+
After that, oddly enough, we sat around watching funny YouTube videos on my parents' tv.  After that, I was wiped out from my busy night last night and today, so it was time to head home.
I'm not looking forward to going back to school just yet...this break flew by WAY too fast.  I guess they always do.


  1. Looks like the Easter bunny was good to the boys. $30!! I need that bunny to come to my house. Umm....I'll have a serving of "other stuff".

    Thank you, my friend, for being the best organizer. Fun times ahead!

  2. Yes, my friend, we are going to have a blast :)

  3. Sounds like a good Bunny day to me. Sorry you have to go back to work. boo hiss. I hope the other stuff doesn't give you a sugar hangover. That looks scrumptious!

  4. I love easter egg hunts that have money in them! So fun!

    Just week closer to summer!!! : )
