Gosh...the weekend flew by and it was filled with family, food, and fun.
I was so excited for the weekend. It's not only because it's Easter and I do love Easter, it's because all my little ducks were home!
Over the past week, Jack went on his last high school spring break with his friends. I don't ever recall being away from him over the past seventeen years for that long...even book signing events I'll come home for a night or day. Seven days is a long time not to see my baby. So it was so nice to have him home and safe.
Austin came home for the weekend. I told him that he didn't have to, but he told me that he wanted to come home for Easter and see his family. My heart melted and he used that opportunity to have me take him shopping!!
Brady was off work, since he's still living at home and going to college, we rarely see him because he works so much.
Cody came home for the day and he was able to show off all the fun photos he took on his trip to Spain last month.
Saturday was spent cleaning up around the yard and getting my summer office ready. I do love our pool. It's not a huge pool. It's considered a play pool. Each end is about four feet deep and it gradually goes to six feet in the middle. It's a great pool to play volleyball and with boys, I always put physical activities at the forefront of each decision.
It's a great pool to just float in. It's saltwater which is also great for you skin!
Saturday night we went to Eddy's sister's house an hour away for a cook out. It was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy instead of cooking the food!
Sunday was amazing. I love going to church. My parents spent the night and we enjoyed my sausage breakfast casserole before we went to an amazing church service. After church, my sister and her family came over and we enjoyed a wonderful Easter lunch.
The night was a little bitter sweet as the kids and family went their separate ways. But it was When Calls the Heart night, so Eddy and I curled up on the couch to end a spectacular weekend.
Of course between the events, I got a few thousand words written! Yay!
How was your weekend??
