We had a fun filled Easter weekend celebrating with just the 4 of us! We started off the weekend by having Family Fun Night! We watched the movie, Cheaper By The Dozen followed by having a dance party together.
I purchase an LED Party Light to step up our dance party. The boys loved it and we all had a great time.
Saturday morning we kicked off the holiday weekend by getting in a festive mood and dying eggs!
It finally wasn’t raining so we were able to enjoy our pool.
We told the boys not to wake us up until 8am…they were right on time with the wake up call! We went through Easter Baskets first….
The Easter Bunny got the memo that we needed more activities to help keep our boys happy and occupied!
After Easter baskets the boys went on an Egg hunt inside the house instead of outside because it was raining in the morning. We have a smart Easter Bunny, he put a T on the eggs for Tyler and an L on the eggs for Luke so there would be no arguments over finding the Easter eggs.
Each of them had to find the golden egg, they were excited to get a $5 bill!
We enjoyed a yummy pancake and bacon breakfast! We made pancakes with our favorite mix, LEHI Pride Pancake Mix, you can find it HERE.
After breakfast we watched our church’s LIVE Mass streamed onto our TV. It was so good to be in His word and have the boys listen to the true meaning of Easter.
We got dressed and ready in our Sunday best to enjoy the rest of the day. We set up our tri-pod and it made this Mama happy by marking the holiday with some family pictures.
We spent the rest of the morning exploring and playing with the Easter Bunny gifts!
We had zoom calls with all our Gimeno family in Florida after lunch. Then we zoom’d with our Newhall families after dinner. It was so good seeing all of our family even if it was from the computer. Thankful we have this option during these social distancing times.
We enjoyed a nice family meal, Sausage and Ground Beef Ziti and Green Beans. I didn’t do a traditional Easter meal with ham or lamb because my boys wouldn’t eat it, so I kept it simple with a meal we would all enjoy.
Happy Easter, Friends! I hope you all enjoyed the holiday and were able to celebrate with your families. With having extra time at home it was easier for us to reflect on the true meaning of Easter. During these strange times it’s a good reminder that He suffered and sacrificed for us and we can do the same for each other now to keep mankind safe and healthy!
