Easter Weekend Recap

Our Easter weekend was sooooooooo nice....around here it was sunny, in the 80's, the spring flowers were blooming and we had fun things to do....we started off with the spring festival in the town near us...Cubby had so much fun. First, he did the egg hunt....

Then it was the bouncy-bounce...

A quick hello to the Easter Bunny....Cub was too busy having fun to sit and have his picture taken.

...and a little action in the obstacle course.

We came home and colored our eggs...always a favorite easter tradition around here...we all loooove eggs!

The treatgirl was very busy baking stressed me out a bit...but I was so happy with the results. I made cut out sugar cookies again. Look at this pretty dish I found at TJMaxx....I thought I could change the ribbon for the occassion/holiday.

Here's a coconut cake I made....I found the recipe in Better Homes and Gardens.....I had issues with it......there HAD to have been a mistake in the recipe...5 eggs???? 1 cup of milk??? The frosting was great......but next time I think I will just make the vanilla cupcake recipe I love from my real life friend Marzipan Mom.

Then, there was the sour cream coffe cake I made for Sunday morning before church. It was yummy. yum. yum....remind me to make that into a post is soooo good!! and easy too :)

We had one more little egg hunt before Easter dinner....Cubby is soooo into the holidays!! I love that about him. Of course I like to try and make everything special and memorable...but I know he totally appreciates everything and gets so truly makes it all worth it. Hope your Easter was happy!
