Happy Easter!!

I never really grew up with a lot of Easter traditions but in the 6 Easters we have spent together, Ben and I have a few.

Of course we start the day off with going to church. This year was a joy because half way through church the heat of a packed-in congregation got me, and I started seeing spots and getting really nauseous. I was able to make it to the bathroom before I passed out, returned for communion and headed out after that (and I hate leaving early).

We then joined some friends for brunch. Usually we would go to Relish, but since that was "rebranded" earlier this year (still not happy about that), we went to Cheesecake Factory.

Heather and Steve's, little miss Isla snoozing during brunch. Such a change from lunch the day prior.

Ben and I. I looked back on our old pictures from Easter and boy have we changed. I was tempted to post them, but I am not sure if I want to publicize the chubby years.

Us girls. Me, Heather, Isla, Lindsey and Jaimelynn.

Afterward, Heather and I sent the boys and Isla home on a man date, while we went and saw "Water for Elephants", which we read last year for book club. Each pair of us had fun and we will be doing that again soon.

We were a little off schedule this year and had to dye eggs this afternoon, rather than prior to Easter. It is not like we were hiding them or anything, but next year we will try to maintain the Easter Bunny illusion for pumpkin and do them earlier.

We have worn the ears every year while dyeing eggs.

I always feel like I will look like a Playboy Bunny, but never more than this year in the matching pink dress.

I love looking at our different eggs over the year.

We made pumpkin an egg too. The colors are a little off, because of course they were supposed to be pink and blue.

I hope you all and your families had a great Easter!!!
