Easter Weekend

Last weekend we spent the whole weekend celebrating between Easter & my birthday.  It was a (mostly) great time with the family.

Friday night we went to the annual Egg-splotion put on by a church in Pickerington.  They have a helicopter fly over & drop thousands of eggs on the field for the kids.  The boys love this & honestly Adrian & I do too.  The only problem with this event is it's super popular.  There are lines for everything & tons of people!  This year there was also a ton of mud.  We actually decided to stay to watch the helicopter then took off & went to Graeter's for ice cream.  The boys didn't need anymore candy.

 Saturday morning we were up bright & early & ready to go to Daniel's school for the egg hunt.  We got there as they opened & the boys got to play in the bounce houses, make crafts & go to the petting zoo.  The only problem with getting there so early...we finished all of that & had an hour to kill before the hunt.  Luckily we live across the street so we went home & relaxed before heading back to collect some eggs.

 After the hunt, we met Carl, Sarah & Isabelle for lunch, then headed to the zoo.  They had their annual Paws & Claws event with treat stations everywhere.  The zoo was super crowded since it was such a beautiful day.  But we managed to see a bunch of animals & collect a ton of candy so everyone was happy.

Sunday morning started with our egg hunt at the house.  The "Easter Bunny" hid a bunch of eggs, both hard boiled & plastic, in the house.  Each boy had an egg on their headboard so as soon as they woke up, the hunt was on!  They were very cute running around the house finding eggs & announcing what they found & where it was.  I didn't take any pictures of the hunt, was just really in the moment enjoying them finding the eggs.

After the hunt, we headed over the Carl & Sarah's house for my family's traditional Easter breakfast.  We had kielbasa, farmer cheese, rye bread & hard boiled eggs.  I won the egg cracking contest this year!  We all ate too much & then parted for the day since they were heading to Sarah's family's house for dinner.  We came home & actually had a very relaxing day.  I forgot to take the ham steaks out in all the commotion of the weekend so we had chocolate chip pancakes for dinner, they were awesome!

It was a very full, very fun, very exhausting & a little bit stressful weekend!  Hope you all had a great Easter weekend!
