Easter Weekend Recap

 Easter weekend was packed with activities!! On Thursday night we went to a potluck at the church.  There was some music and reflection time as well. 

I had picked up some fun lamb shaped cakes at a local bakery so we enjoyed those for breakfast on Good Friday.  I attend our church service in the morning

A special delivery arrived while I was out.

In the afternoon we went on a hunt for an Easter tree.  These boys didn't want to come with me, but I eventually convinced them and they had a good time. 

Throwing some sticks in the water.

And then we came home and finished putting out the Easter decorations.

These are Ukrainian Easter eggs that I did when I was little.

That night we went to the golf club for dinner so we could get fish and chips. It was a nice evening out.

On Saturday morning we were up bring and early so we could do our errands before it got too busy. We picked up our Easter dinner (ribs, coleslaw, and potatoes), hot cross buns, and some flowers. 

We played a bit outside, including tetherball at the neighbours'.

And then we came back in to decorate our Easter cake. I told the boys to take over the decorating this year and they had fun with that.  The idea is to make bunnies out of marshmallows and put them all around the outside.

And then we dyed some eggs.

The finished product.

Then we settled in to watch the Masters and even had a nap.

At the end of the day we drove up to have dinner with my cousins in Shelburne.  Always a fun time with that crowd.

I was up first on Easter morning and snuck down to see what the Easter Bunny had left us (and to make coffee).

A few hidden eggs.

Including one by the coffee so it must have been for me :)

Using whatever tools necessary to get up high.

Even Vladdy was holding onto one.

Then some breakfast in amongst the chocolate.

We went to church of course and then took it easy watching the golf and curling the rest of the day.

Ribs, coleslaw, and potato salad for our Easter meal.

We were not mad that Jon Rahm won the Masters, but sorry to see Canada lose the curling.  We watched Harry Potter 5 after that because E had just finished the book. 

Monday was a holiday for the boys, but Dave and I had to work.  The boys had a few chores to do, but they spent quite a bit of time outside as well.  We made our resurrection rolls in the afternoon and walked up the street to do the scavenger hunt put on by the local stores.

I always love Easter because there are lots of fun things to do, and this year was no exception, with the added bonus of the Masters, plus the weather is really starting to warm up, spring is here!


  1. It sounds like you had a fabulous Easter; that cake is amazing.

  2. What a wonderful Easter and it looks like you all had a great time. Those ribs look so good! The boys did a fantastic job with decorating the cake. The Ukrainian eggs look beautiful, how special that you made them.
