These little bunnies and I have had a very busy week. School vacation is a blessed mix of laziness and adventures, sleeping in and staying up late. What with all the long drives, visitors, evenings with friends and daytime excursions, the blog and its obligations kind of slipped my mind. But I wouldn’t want to forget to commemorate this Easter and all the fun we had, so here we are again!
The day before Easter, we drove down to Massachusetts to spend the night with family. Then we woke up Auntie Amanda and Uncle Chris bright and early to play, open Easter baskets, and have some fun before heading over to Grammy’s for dinner.
My aunts and uncles, my kids’ aunts and uncles, lots of food, handmade name tags, and plastic eggs made for one very festive afternoon! I love watching my kids connect with extended family, especially mine since we’re so far away. I grew up with them in my own house, and having my kids love and appreciate them means everything to me. It’s an extra blessing in my book.
And in the spirit of Williams family Easters past, there was an epic egg hunt, for all the bunnies, even the big ones!
After the egg hunt, there was room for one last cupcake and some more cousin fun before we hit the road to get our pup from the kennel. We all (especially Little H!) made the most of it.
One, two, three, four, five times blessed…more than that. We had so many wonderful reasons to smile that day, and I’m glad I took a minute to reminisce and appreciate it all!
