The weekend started out with a five mile run on Saturday morning - OK, so this was not a highlight was the weekend, because it was miserable! I have seriously lost my running mojo these past couple weeks which is really discouraging. But that's not what I'm here to chat about today, so...
Later in the morning the kids and I headed over to my parents house for an Easter egg hunt. It was a beautiful day and my mom's daffodil field bloomed perfectly in time for the holiday! Swede was very serious and focused on finding all the eggs. A girl on a mission! It took Abel a while to catch on but I think he enjoyed it too.
He's a good egg.
Amicable sibling moment - It DOES happen!
There was chocolate...
In the afternoon both kids took great naps and then Swede and I dyed eggs which was fun, and less messy than I anticipated - Bonus! I like the turquoise one the best.
In the evening our babysitter (who has been out of town for several weeks) came over so that Jonathan and I could celebrate 4/15 at one of our favorite restaurants - Cyprus Cafe. The deadline isn't until 4/18 this year but I finished up most of my work on Friday - Hooray! This lemon cocktail was delicious, and they have an intensely wonderful chocolate pot d'creme dessert that I can't resist.
On Sunday we went to the early church service and then headed over to Jonathan's parents' house. It was also my mother-in-law's birthday so they hosted brunch for all the aunts/uncles/cousins. There was ham, spinach salad, fruit salad, potato salad, deviled eggs (made by Jonathan and they were delicious) and a green-chili egg bake.
Plus... Cupcakes! There was a high level of chocolate consumption this weekend.
The kids were a little overstimulated from all the excitement and presents and chocolate so we had a low-key afternoon at home, leftovers for dinner, and an early bedtime for everyone.
