Easter Memories

It seems like the month of April has just flown by!  I can not believe it is already the 17th!!  Whew!!

Sophia and I had a blast coloring eggs!  I used a recipe on from Pinterest for my hard-boiled eggs and I won’t do it any other way in the future!  Thank you Alton Brown!  As you see in the picture, place all the eggs on the racks in a preheated oven at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.  Transfer them immediately into a cold water bath.  The eggs were perfect and took absolutely NO effort on my part!  I also learned that 6 eggs was PLENTY for a 3 year old, plus it only cost me $0.80!  I bought the kit last year on clearance for $0.50!  A very cheap, yet fun activity for Sophia and I to do during Jackson’s nap time!

We had a busy Easter weekend this year!  Saturday morning we had a great time at the Easter Egg Hunt at a park near our house!  Sophia was much more into it this year compared to last year!  It is amazing the difference 1 year makes in a little kids life!  We celebrate Resurrection Sunday at church bright and early, came home for Jackson’s nap, then headed down to the g-wood to visit my parents!  We had a WONDERFUL meal, the kids too awesome naps, and we finished with another Easter Egg Hunt in Mimi and Papi’s yard!  Sophia was a little bummed the eggs were empty, but still enjoyed finding them all over the yard.  Next year Hannah is going to give Sophia a run for her money!  I am excited to see how Jackson does next year as well! :)  My cousin Lori and her husband Chuck also joined us and we had a great time reconnecting with them!

Two of my FAVORITE people!!

Time to eat!

This past weekend we were able to celebrate my sister's 29th birthday!  I keep teasing her she has to enjoy this last year in her 20's before the big 3-0!!  We had a WONDERFUL meal thanks to my mom's awesome cooking as well as a Dairy Queen ice cream cake!  Sarah always requests one every year!!

Mimi and her girls!

Papi and Jackson!!
