Easter Party

Dog in Hell...

He pled for my help... Instead, I took a picture.

Okay, so, it’s taken me an entire week to get the Easter Party post up on the blog…  Pathetic, I know.  It’s been one of those weeks again.  Dr. Cindita was in town for a couple of days, I had CPR training, and my busy life in general…  These are the many reasons I’ve been letting the blog slide this week.  But I find myself with a few hours this Sunday morning to catch up on things before I take off to Tampa to visit friends for a couple of days.  I’m taking this opportunity to update you on our family Easter party.

We had an awesome Easter last week!  We joined J’s parents for sunrise service at the beach at 6 AM on Easter morning.  Then we came back to our house for coffee, doughnuts and naps.  Later, we invited a bunch of friends and family over for ham sandwiches, pasta salad, deviled eggs, etc.  My mom’s sister, Mimi, brought her wonderful bunny cake.  It was adorable as ever!  The homemade icing was to die for.  So good!

I found it strange that there were all sorts of Easter pinatas in the stores this year.  I had never seen them before.  Perhaps I just never noticed them in the past or maybe this pinata deal is a new thing.  They seemed to be front-and-center on the shelves this year though.  I knew that the boys would love to go to town on one of them so I obliged them.  Here is J rigging it up on the monkey bars out back.

Nothing says “resurrection of our Lord” quite like smacking a paper Easter basket with a bat…

Cutie Pie wanted nothing to do with the pinata.  I tried to help him but he wanted none of it.

After several minutes of intense batting, the Wildman and his two cousins got to the good stuff!

After the pinata was smashed to smithereens the Easter Bunny was called.  The children were herded into the house so J and Big Red could consult with the Bunny about hiding eggs in the backyard.  Thankfully, the Easter Bunny was available to come over on such short notice and hide eggs while the kids played inside.  It did not take long for him to hide all of those eggs either!

Cutie Pie enjoyed this activity much better.

It was a fun day filled with faith, fellowship, and fun!
