Easter Weekend

Easter weekend we had many of Darrin's family members come to visit and we got to meet our niece Oriana for the first time.  We had lots of fun!  They got in Friday after work and Grandpa joined Darrin and Ian at soccer practice. After that, everyone came home and we enjoyed some Parmesan tilapia for dinner (my favorite fish recipe, and oh, so easy!).

Saturday morning we dyed eggs.  The kids always look forward to it, but I think I like it more than they do.  After only two or three eggs, they're ready to be done.

After egg dyeing, we headed to the zoo.  We spent several hours there and had a great time. The kids and I were there a few weeks ago for spring break, but we came in from the south. Coming in our normal way, we could really see the construction changes starting to happen. It will be neat to see how they upgrade what we already think is a terrific zoo in the years to come.

While we were at the zoo, the Easter Bunny visited our house, so we were able to hunt when we got home.

Sunday morning we said our good-byes to Darrin's family and went to church. After service, there was an Easter egg hunt for the kids.

That was followed by lunch at Marlena and Noah's and another hunt. We also opened Easter baskets and the kids had fun playing with their bubble blowers.
