And another one bites the dust.....

It was a long weekend for my family yet I still feel like it didn't last long enough!  The hubby was off work for Good Friday....the big kids were not (due to a snow day that had no snow back in Winter).  So....what do we do?  We wait until 10 am (when they are counted present) and....YANK them out to head to the beach!  While I drove the get away car from the Elementary school the Hubs made sandwiches for everyone and packed up the cooler.  Good Friday was definitely fun.

 Saturday was a fun filled day as well.....if you don't count B's phone taking a swim in the pool and now he (conveniently) has this fancy schmancy new one. 
Sunday, of course was Easter and the church service was awesome!  We spent plenty of time with my dad, who was in town for the week.  My sister came down from Austin and even hid eggs for the kiddos.....she was SO good that we still have 5 more to find. 

I couldn't find the right dress for Easter Sunday so I dug deep in the closet and found this classic from about 4 years ago.

You're never too old for an Easter Egg Hunt...especially when there is money in those eggs!!
 I almost forgot G's Easter party at his preschool!  His teacher is amazing and always pulls out all the stops.  I signed up for an Easter dessert and bought everything to make from-scratch cupcakes.  Then I remembered that 4 and 5 year olds don't really eat a whole cupcake at a school party....they lick part of the icing, take a bite or two and then move on to the next sweet treat.  So, I decided on the box mix and decorated with chocolate icing and Nerds!  They liked them just as much....and I didn't feel any heart palpitations when I saw a whole cupcake in the trash.
