After church we headed to my Aunt and Uncle's house for a big Easter feast. There was ham, brown rice, white acre peas, green beans, potato salad, a relish plate, strawberry jello salad and rolls. And then of course lemon bars and vanilla ice cream for dessert. I was a good girl though, and stuck to my carb-free diet eating mostly ham and veggies, along with some pickles and okra. Although the other things looked absolutely delicious!
And you know what happened after lunch time? An Easter egg hunt - even though the youngest "child" is 20 years old. And we loved it. Then the "kids" hid the eggs and made our parents find them. And they had a good time doing it as well! And one more round of hunting for the kids finished everything up this year. I think we'll probably continue doing this until we have children of our own, and then traditions will probably change. Until then though, these 20-something grandchildren will continue to hunt eggs each year. :)
We came inside to cool down, and then Meg and I had a silly self-photo-shoot. We did the same thing last Easter, and those are some of my favorite pictures of us ever. So we repeated the fun times again this year, and again we had some outstanding results. :)
Also, the Easter Bunny visited my house and left prizes for Meg and I. I however will be waiting until next week to eat them, once I complete the 2 weeks of my carb-free diet. Then I will have some yummy chocolates and candies!
Holidays spent with my family are always lovely and fun and relaxing, wonderful and peaceful. I love spending time with them, and we always have a good time. So thankful I've been blessed with such great people in my life! I hope everyone else enjoyed their Easter Sunday just as much as we did! :)
