Hoppy Easter

Posted by Heather at Sunday, April 24, 2011
Happy Easter, Katy! This is your second Easter and this year we are spending it in California with your Great-Grandma Ethel and Great-Grandpa Jim. I am so thankful that we have this opportunity to introduce you to your great-grandparents and enjoy visiting together!

We started the day out by going to church with Grandma Ethel at her church, Christian Life Center. Grandma Ethel introduced us to a bunch of her friends from church. You sat through part of the service before you got too antsy and loud. I took you out to the lobby area where you walked around and explored until the service was over.

After church, you and I went back to the hotel so that you could get a nap, Katy. Daddy stayed with Grandma Ethel, Grandpa Jim and Uncle Rich. You took a good long nap- about an hour and forty minutes- before we met back up to go out to brunch.

Brunch reservations were at one-thirty PM at Fernando's. There was a delicious Easter Buffet with lamb, an omelet station, salads, pastas and desserts. We all ate very well, including Grandpa Jim who ate a whole ham and cheese omelet, shrimp and sausage. You, on the other hand, Katy, mostly enjoyed the pasta, orange juice and cookies! You were quite a mess when you finished eating!

After brunch, the Easter Bunny hid the eggs that your decorated last night and you had your second Easter egg hunt in Grandma Ethel and Grandpa Jim's backyard. You got a cute little pink bunny basket from your great grandparents that you carried around like a purse. You did not want to go off of the sidewalk to get the eggs hidden in the grass. It took some coaxing to get you to step into the grass and get the "hidden" eggs. You loved finding the plastic eggs that had animal crackers and peeps hidden in them! The hard-boiled eggs you managed to smoosh and bang together, resulting in a mushy, eggy mess!

All in all, it was a good Easter!
