Our Easter Weekend

I love three day weekends.  I wish every weekend was three days long. I swear I would be willing to work four 10 hour days to get a three day weekend every weekend.  Of course then I would probably hate the long days and miss my munchkin then, too.

Anyway, I took this past Friday off for Good Friday. Our daycare was closed so we had an extra day with the cutest sweetest kid ever (though I may  be biased on that  :) ).  Friday was kind of a lazy day (the weather was iffy) and we made a trip to the dollar store and Wal-Mart to get some goodies for the munchkin's Easter basket.

Saturday morning we headed downtown to Hampton Park for a little Easter egg hunt.  Apparently it started right on time because we missed the actual egg hunt, but we still got to meet the Easter Bunny:

And take some pictures while hanging out with some friends:

When we got home it was time for Andrew's nap and J and I took advantage of that time to get some work done on the fence:

Yesterday we had a fun day at home.  Yes, we're a bunch of heathens and didn't make it to church or anything.   We let the munchkin play with his Easter toys:

Hung out on the deck with the dogs for a bit while he played with the water sprayer:

Trimmed a limb out of the neighbor's tree that overhangs our yard and shades our garden (they are out of town this week - hope they don't notice the gaping hole when they get back!):

And strapped the munchkin to me so we could take a little ride in the golf cart down to the park and Pitt Street.  It was a little windy down there, but the weather was gorgeous:

All in all it was a wonderful weekend - I'm just sad that it's already over.


  1. I just told my mom on Thurday that if I could work longer days 4 days a week I'd soooo do it! I think I'd be such a happier person!

    1. I worked at a tv station as my first "real" job out of college and the last year there I worked four 10's. It was great except my "weekend" was Wed-Fri and I worked the overnight Tues night so I didn't finish up until 8:00 Wed morning.

  2. love the pics...looks like a great weekend

  3. I totally vote for four ten hour days!!!

    Looks like a great weekend! And I am so jealous of your garden!

  4. The palm trees in your yard make me jealous!

    We're visiting Savannah GA this fall and are going to poke around at some houses for sale, and I must have a palm tree. LOL.

    Oh right, and Happy Easter! Haha~
