An Egg-cellent weekend

Here's our Easter weekend in an egg shell...ok I'll stop with the egg references now.
Friday-I caught up on the new show SMASH and ate Chickfila in my PJs on the couch...Bliss.
Saturday-My sister and her husband were in town so we grilled out and played Uno attack and a new card game we like to call Pond scum. My sister and I also took on Martha Stewart's Meringues. They definitely did not turn out as cute as they appear on the cover of this month's Living magazine, but we tried and had fun so it was a success.
Sunday-We started off by taking a few family photos...
Then we met my family at church for a wonderful service where we watched my mom get baptized (yay Mom!) After church, we headed to my parents house to celebrate Easter with the rest of the family. My brother is the youngest "kid" on my Dad's side of the family and he's 18 so we weren't planning on having an Easter egg hunt this year...until my Aunt Pam showed up. She came with Easter eggs already filled with candy and prizes to be won and we had a blast running around the yard like we were 5.
We had amazing food and sat outside in the sun then napped while the Masters was on in the background. There's just something wonderful about napping while golf is on in the background.
This weekend was egg-actly what I needed. Okay really I'll stop now. I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!

i totally fought the urge to push my kids out of the way during our easter egg hunt so i can relate to having fun like a 5-year-old. seriously though...my family puts candy AND money in the eggs. there's not much that will stand between me and $1 that i can put towards my morning tom thumb coffee stop ;) looks like y'all had a blast!

I think your meringues look like they turned out great!! :) I love that you guys did an Easter Egg hunt for the 'big kids' -- we broke into some backyard wiffle ball and the youngest of us was 21!
