Easter Weekend 2015

On Saturday night we met Gran, Pa and Aunt Chelsea at our church for the Easter Service.  After the service was over we all went to eat at O'Charley's.  Next it was time to start prepping for Easter lunch. Since I was hosting this year, Aunt Chelsea came over to help me cook. Uncle James and Pa came over to watch the NCAA tournament with Michael. 

The next morning we went to Gran and Pa's church.  Sam and Finn sat mostly quiet during the entire service.  After church we gave the boys their Easter baskets. This year we got the boys a wrestling game for the XBox. 

After everyone got to our house we had the egg hunt. 

Then the boys counted their loot. 

After the hunt we had lunch together.  It was Gran, Pa, Chelsea, James, David, Sharon, Henry, Sharon's mom and dad and Dave and Eve.  Lunch was really good.  Michael, David, Ed and I ate outside since it was so nice.  It was really a nice, relaxing day.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…


Today Finn and Sam put on their new Upward  uniforms. Sam took one look at Finn and said “Finn, do you want to be twin basketball brothers?”  Even though Sam said it with as much sincerity and excitement me had in his little body, Finn respectfully declined.
Instead they danced like ladies and gentlemen danced in days of yore. They looked hilariously awkward.
