Happy Easter!!

Below are the pics of our Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday as promised in the last post. Words can not express how tired and sore we were that day but we managed. G-ma was limping along as well as she was nursing a leg injury. It was a good thing we had a 3 to 2 adult-kid ratio that day to keep up with the kiddos!

After that we took a brief siesta and then got dressed up for dinner alfresco on the downtown mall. I am a huge fan of pistachio gelato so of course we had to stop there as well...

Easter Sunday has been a big day. First the Easter Bunny had given us a visit. Ladybug wasn't sure she wanted the "giant", "humongous" or "gigantic" bunny to come by but she was pretty pleased with the baskets he hid around the house. After opening the baskets we had a big pancake breakfast with real maple syrup and sliced strawberries. Yum!

Later that day, Papa and Grandpa came by and we sat and chatted and had an early Easter dinner together. I made a big ole ham, some asparagus and biscuits like usual for a holiday meal but I altered our traditional mashed potato recipe for one of Jamie Oliver's I saw on Oprah. I didn't measure or anything but I mashed the potatoes with the skins on (keeping all those wonderful nutrients) and added a bit of salt, olive oil and some garlic I had roasted in the oven. It was delicious and heart healthy!

In retrospect maybe we should have taken off the new shirt G-pa and Papa had given him.
