Weekend Recap: Easter Edition

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great Easter! I know we sure did. Our weekend was BUSY, but so fun. We got to see both mine and Lee's families, so that was really nice. Having Liam here for Easter was extra special as well, and he was SPOILED rotten by his grandparents, great grandparents, and the Easter bunny.

On Friday, I was off work and got to spend the whole day with my little sweetie. We went grocery shopping for our Easter feast, and spent some time cleaning up a little to get ready for our guests. We also had plenty of playtime together, and even took a walk in the stroller. I was SO THANKFUL for some Sunshine on Friday, since it was rainy and dreary so much last week.
We had fun playing together on Friday.

We even enjoyed a little sunshine on our walk. 

Saturday Lee helped set up for the WSNC's Easter Egg hunt. Liam and I went to our church's egg hunt in the morning. Liam was not super into the hunt, but I did pick up one egg for him, and he got to see his friends and cousin do their egg hunts. He was kicking his feet and making happy squeals, so I think he was excited to be outside!
Liam got to see his cousin at our church's Easter egg hunt.

After our church's hunt, we went home for a little bit and then met up with Lee and family at the WSNC's egg hunt. The WSNC is a local men's organization that Lee is a member of, and their egg hunt is huge! They stuff and 'hide' over 12,000 eggs each year. They also have several characters at their hunt, which all of the kids seem to really love.
We got to see Daddy AND the Easter Bunny at the WSNC egg hunt.

Saturday evening we had dinner with Lee's family, and my family arrived for our Easter celebration. Lee's cousin hosted his family's Easter dinner, and everyone was excited to see how big Liam had gotten since Christmas. Liam's grandma and great grandma spoiled him with Easter baskets, and he got some super cute toys and summer clothes.

Later that evening, back at our house, my family had arrived for our Easter celebration. I created an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt for my niece and nephew, and while they weren't super enthusiastic about it, I think they still had fun. I know I had a lot of fun putting it together, so I'm calling it a win. We also dyed eggs that night, and snacked on dips and pizza.
Liam loves his cousin Layla. After we took this pic, he put his arms around her neck like a hug... it was the cutest thing ever! We failed to get any pics with Liam's other cousin Carson. :( 

Sunday morning we got up early and the 3 kids opened their Easter baskets before heading to church. After church, my brother and his family had to head home, but my parents all stayed to visit and we made a FEAST! Lee grilled chicken quarters and pork chops, and my parents and I made asparagus, salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, caramelized carrots, and we had peanut butter lasagna for dessert.

We all wore yellow to church for Easter. Shortly after this pic, Liam pooped ALL OVER and we had to change his cute little shirt, HA! 

My dad and smom headed home, and my mom hung out for the evening. We were pretty lazy the rest of the day. We grazed over our leftovers, watched tv, and played with Liam.
The peanut butter lasagna was clutch!

Sunday night, this little guy was exhausted! 

My mom is off work for a few days this week, so she is babysitting Liam today and tomorrow, which works out great, because Lee has to travel tonight for work. Other than Lee traveling tonight, we don't have too much going on this week, which I am thankful for!

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! I'll be back here later this week with a post about the scavenger hunt I made, and if I have time, I'll post about the peanut butter lasagna I made too!
