I'm glad to report that this week was much better than the last one. I drove down to see my best friend on Friday afternoon (you mean you don't brave Easter weekend traffic and cross state lines on a whim?) and then came back on Saturday. On Sunday, the Easter bunny came to visit the kids, of course, and then we were off to church.
Afterwards, we headed to my parents' house for lots of food, naps, and games of brains and skill. Our family plays a traditional game where you tap a hard boiled egg against the egg of the person next to you. If yours doesn't break, you get to keep playing. Yours truly was the winner this year(!). We also take the Easter egg hunt to a whole new level. You really haven't enjoyed an egg hunt until you are wondering if you should climb up on a roof or dig up a flower garden in order to find your eggs...
|Happy Easter from our crazy, happy bunch to yours!|

What are you reading this week?
Happy Easter! Sounds like you guys take your Easter egg hunts seriously! Nice review of Attachments last week too...ReplyDelete
Thanks Greg. I hope you had a happy Easter as well!Delete
We do take our Easter egg hunts quite seriously, especially when my sisters bring a boyfriend home. Those poor guys need a long time to find their eggs!
Ooo While Beauty Slept looks really good!! I really liked The Museum of Extraordinary Things.ReplyDelete
It sounds like you had a wonderful Easter. :)
I'm liking The Museum of Extraordinary Things so far, but I think I liked The Dovekeepers better. Have you read that one?Delete
Happy belated Easter! Sounds like a fun day was had by all. Love the photo too-- great photo op. Talking about family gaming, the (unfortunately) rare times that a large group of my extended family gets together we also play something. We had an early holiday get-together last weekend at my brother's and we took out 2 scrabble boards and played side by side tournaments for a couple of hours. Some of us are competitive :) Have a great week.ReplyDelete
That sounds like a lot of fun! We don't play too much Scrabble, but we will play Uno, Apples to Apples, Phase 10 or Dutch Blitz.Delete
I hope you have a wonderful week too!
Sounds like a fabulous family weekend. I'm hoping to read the Museum of Extraordinary Things soon.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
