Easter 2011

it was a weird tough weekend for us. originally our plan was to go camping at my parents. but on thursday they came here instead to prepare funeral arrangments for my dads brother who is not doing so well :( so instead, we spent easter at home.

i'd rather nathan not learn that every holiday is filled with a grip of candy. which we all know the easter bunny has nothing to do with the crucifixion. so instead we went with more useful items. our summer will be primarily spent at the beach. so we got him some toys to play with (in the car and on the beach), a new sand bucket, 2 pairs of sandals, 2 pairs of crocs, 2 new swim trunks, 2 rash guards, new sunglasses, new hat, and a "swim cover-up" (aka a shorter bathrobe)

he had no intention to come down the hallway knowing i was camera ready!
dad had to convince him
but when he realized
he was interested!
he got the hang of it pretty well ;)
 i've been waiting for strawberries to go on sale. so when they finally did, we had to buy them! and jaren made me strawberry crepes for breakfast :)
my parents had to leave to "go back to work". but my sister and her 3 kids came over for dinner. we had rolls, stuffing, au gratin potatoes, fruit, veggies and ham.

i'm glad we have a nice break of holidays until the next one! i'm getting tired ;)
