How was your Easter holiday weekend?
My was purposely low key since I had a very trying week last week with the kids on Spring Break! I actually was able to sleep in…wait for it…3 days in a row! My husband had mercy on me and took off Friday to help me take care of the kids and the first thing he did was let me sleep in. This trend thankfully continued ALL weekend!
I didn’t attend church on purpose. In the last few years I haven’t attended Easter Service unless I am scheduled because my church becomes crazy around this time–there are literally folks lined up for blocks trying to get a seat. Although I am on staff, I don’t abuse that position when I am not on the schedule. Needless to say, I have spent my entire weekend catching up on cleaning, blogging and family time. Plus, Easter is very much like Christmas time where you see lots of folks you only see once a year but I digress…
My close girlfriend Kia threw a Easter Party for the community on Saturday so you know I was going to be present! We spent most of the day on Saturday cleaning and in the afternoon we were off to have some Easter fun!
The boys were super excited when they go there, the big boy bee lined for the arts and crafts table immediately and the baby was clinging to dad.
Of course, like most parties, once the boys got warmed up to their environment they were all over the place! Since the venue was so huge, that meant a lot of running for mommy and daddy.
The event was so much fun! There was a dance contest, musical chairs, sack races, and even a pie eating contest!
I volunteered to be a photographer at the event but it was SO hard trying to get good shots and trying to keep my 2 year old from escaping through the front doors! I did manage to get a good amount of shots so I pray she’s happy :).
No major temper tantrums, good food, great music and amazing weather all adds up to a great Easter Party. I am so proud of her 🙂
