Our Easter Weekend 2011

This weekend was one of those weekends that are so over-scheduled (by me, of course) that I was looking forward to Monday.  It started out with Good Friday.  We had a small service for my mom.  She would have loved the fact that we had a celebration of her life on such a significant Christian day.

Schools were closed so we headed to a late lunch and a little shopping after that.

Saturday we were treated to lunch and a movie courtesy of Burger King.

Burger King had a Bloggers event to promote their new chicken tenders.  
I had a chance to meet some local bloggers and their families and that is always welcomed.

Swimming is always in our schedule because it's just so darn hot down here already. So by the time we finally got to coloring eggs, it was way past everyone's bedtime.

But it was so much fun!  And I was actually able to be in one of the pictures this time.  (Thank you for playing photographer, honey!)

Our neighbors, Karen and Alanna, helped color and also baked delicious cupcakes for the boys.

I was under the impression that the kids would sleep in a little, since they went to bed so late.  I was wrong!  At 6:00 AM, Sun Kissed Boy #1 was up snooping for Easter goodies.  Then the hunt began.

Some families have game time, we have Lego time.  Sun Kissed Boy #3 was upset because the bigger brothers wouldn't let him help build.

He settled with a donut on mamma's lap instead.

But he's a persistent little guy.

Have you heard about Crayola's colored bubbles?  We have! If you love laundry as much as I do (insert sarcasm here), then have your kids wear little to no clothes while blowing these. You'll thank me later.  

And as I mentioned, it's been hot around here!

How was your Easter weekend?

Man, if it were only hot enough here to swim...of course, it will be soon enough so I'm not complaining. Glad you had a good weekend!

So fun! We love legos around here too ;-) And can't wait for the weather to be warm enough to swim...what great shots of them jumping in the pool, I love the last one of your little #3! ha!

our kids got the colored bubbles too...and I realized {too late} what a mess they are! ha! but they are fun ;-)

Happy late Easter, looks like you had fun! Love the giant chicken tenders!

It sounds like you had a great weekend! My boys went swimming this weekend too but I was too chicken because the water was still pretty cold! I saw someone else complaining about the colored bubbles, so I don't think we will be buying them:)

Wow, those bubbles do make a mess! But they look like a lot of fun, too. :) It looks so warm there. I'm more than a little jealous!

It sounds like a great weekend, Yanet. I think it was so thoughtful to have your mom's memorial service on a day that was important to her.
