The Excellence That Was Easter

Between the peacefulness of the spring wind whipping around the corners of our home longing for a touch of its season and a weekend to just be a family, this Easter was one to remember:

Great Grandma broke out the spoils again with a delightful snail mail package
A boy who identifies with superheroes themed his eggs as such
A jaunt up north to the Zona Rosa parade meant big smiles, puddle jumping, candy collecting, animal feeding and a
private concert by Mr. Stinkyfeet himself

And the anticipation of Easter meant a 4:45 a.m. wake up call that could not be coaxed back to sleep for anything, leading to a 5:15 a.m. hunt of goodies (that were by the way then consumed by one said Golden Retriever hours later while the family brunched)

The "basketball guys" (aka cake toppers" this guy has been dreaming of came true in a jelly bean filled reality
Endless amounts of food and laughter were shared table side with family at Gaslight Grill

Until the 4 a.m. wake up call caught up with him and a 15-minute mid-morning snooze was in order
Practice with a beautiful new baby (cousin Carver) was in order while we enjoyed time, another egg hunt and delicious eats with wonderful family
Including cousin Caiti, who little dude believes is just the cat's meow
Most of the weekend was spent counting blessings, being abundantly thankful for the amazing people in our life and sprinkling in the Hallmarkesque pieces of the holiday that make it so fun too. I couldn't help but wonder if it's one of the last weekends it will be just the three of us in our little utopia, but grew excited and anxious with the thought, thankful this Easter was one to remember. May yours have been filled with magical moments and all you'd been wishing for too!
