Happy Easter!

We’ve had a busy but fun Easter weekend.  It kicked off Friday night with a Pirates game.  They beat the Manchester Monarchs 6-3!

On Saturday, Kaitlyn skipped dance class in the morning and went over to our church instead.  We heard the Easter story, sang songs, and learned about the contents of a traditional Easter basket.   Then Monsignor Henchal blessed the kids’ Easter baskets before the egg hunt.Imported Photos 04304Imported Photos 04305Imported Photos 04307Imported Photos 04308Imported Photos 04309Imported Photos 04310Imported Photos 04311Imported Photos 04312Imported Photos 04314

After the egg hunt, we went down two Two Lights for lunch.  It was the Lobster Shack’s opening day.  It was great being there before all the tourists arrive for the season.  Parking was so much easier!  The lobster rolls were just as good as last year!  We can’t wait to go back…Imported Photos 04317Imported Photos 04318Imported Photos 04319Imported Photos 04323Imported Photos 04324Imported Photos 04325

Next we unfortunately had to take Kevin to work, but we went home and made a surprise Easter dessert for Kevin and Grammy.  I’m pretty impressed with the next picture.  I snapped it one handed while teaching Kaitlyn the fine art of using a Wilton cake decorating tip and piping bag to make “grass”!Imported Photos 04326

Kaitlyn is putting the “Easter Eggs” in the “grass”.  Some of the “eggs” are jelly beans and others are Hershey chocolate eggs.Imported Photos 04328Imported Photos 04329

All done!  Some will be coming in to work with me tomorrow.Imported Photos 04330

Next up was egg dying and decorating!Imported Photos 04331Imported Photos 04332Imported Photos 04333

After we were done decorating, Kaitlyn asked what we were going to do with the eggs.  I told her we were going to eat them.  Her response?  “Ewww. I don’t want to eat the stickers!”Imported Photos 04334

This morning we went to Mass.  Kaitlyn got lots of compliments on her dress.   I can’t believe how grown up she looks here!Imported Photos 04336Imported Photos 04337Imported Photos 04338

The Easter Bunny came while we were at church!Imported Photos 04335Imported Photos 04339Imported Photos 04343Imported Photos 04344Imported Photos 04345Imported Photos 04340Imported Photos 04342

Right now Kaitlyn is watching Cars 2 which the Easter Bunny brought her and looking pretty tired.  She will definitely be crashing soon.  Hope everyone else had a great Easter!  We sure did!
