We enjoyed some wonderful family time this weekend. Lots of down time, outdoor time, and even some mom-alone time! We went to our church's Easter service on Saturday night and loved having Sunday to our leisure. I put together brunch for the 3 of us (props to La for the menu idea: fruit, ham, muffins, and baked oatmeal [Mel's recipe!]) and we headed over to the Arboretum for a late morning picnic. The weather was a bit cool, so we were bundled up, and yet M loved trekking around, watching birds and airplanes (her newest fascination), and petting some animals in a little petting zoo. Later, she participated in her first Easter egg hunt in our front yard and quickly figured out where the eggs were and what to do with them. It took about 20 minutes to round them up, but she loved it and excitedly would point and say her famous "OH!" whenever she spotted one. What a wonderful weekend to reflect on the hope of our faith in Christ! He is Risen...you know the rest. :)
I think M looks too funny in this one!
