Easter Weekend 2021

 Happy Easter! HE is Risen!

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Ours was jammed pack with all the things. 

Friday.. The boys preschool was closed, so they spent the day at my parents house. Thankfully it wasn't too cold during the day, so they were able to spend some time on the playset outside.  After work I headed to pick them up. For dinner we ordered a bunch of different shrimp and seafood taco's from one of our favorites. We also made a batch (or a few batches) of margarita's. The boys played and we had out neighbors come over for drinks. I was exhausted so I went to bed when Joey did! We had a lot to do Saturday, so I knew I had to get my sleep in!

Saturday.. I made a Lowe's run with Joey followed by a trip to Shoprite for the groceries needed for Sunday dinner and baking. We got breakfast sandwiches at Shoprite and brought them home to eat. After breakfast, I started making my Easter Bread.  Joey & Joe got ready for their first T-Ball practice of the season. Joe is the Head Coach and they are both really excited! Once they left and Vinny has finished his lunch I put him down for a nap. I knew I only had a period of alone time and had a lot to get done! I cleaned off all the furniture and washed off the back covered patio. While that dried, I started painting the doors to the outdoor TV. It was a turquoise color, and while I loved it, it just didn't fit with the colors of our furniture that were on the covered patio. I matched the color of our doors as close as I could find. It is pretty close to matching! It was pretty cold when not in the sun, and of course it was super windy out. I do have to touch it up a little bit, so hoping this coming weekend is a little warmer!  

I was able to unpack and move to the patio my new chairs, until Vinny woke up. Shortly after he awoke, Joe and Joey got home from baseball. Joey was tired, so he ended up going upstairs and taking a nap. Joe ran to pick up cookies I had made for the boys for their Easter baskets and took Vinny with him, so I was able to finish up my bread and start mini cheesecakes I was making for Easter dinner while Joey slept. When Joe got home, he helped me put up the fence around the pool, so that the boys could play safely in the backyard, and we don't have 

Sunday.. Joey woke up his normal early time, before anyone else. I was actually surprised we waited patiently to open his Easter basket until Vinny and daddy woke up. Finally around 7 he couldn't wait anymore and he woke them up. The boys, including Charger; opened their Easter baskets and then we started the morning with bunny waffles for the boys. 

The boys played with their new things and my mother in law came later in the am. When she got there, we distracted the boys while Joe hid all the Easter eggs in the backyard. To be honest, I bought nothing new to put in them and instead I raided the playroom and stuffed them with match box cars, figurines and whatever I could find that fit!

My parents came over and we had Easter lunch. Joe made a ham and lamb and my mom pasta plus we had all the sides! For dessert I made mini oreo cheesecakes and had my Easter bread. After lunch the boys played outside until everyone crashed later that night. It was such a good day!

Hope you all had a great Easter weekend as well!
