EASTER WEEKEND 2016

What a gorgeous weekend we had! We a blast celebrating Aubrey's 3rd Easter with our family.

Friday, Scott and I both worked and Aubrey's school was closed, so she stayed with my mom and her cousins came over and they just played together. My mom set up a cute Easter Egg Hunt for them.

Saturday morning, Scott and Aubrey worked in the yard. They are so cute together. For Christmas, my mom got Aubrey a watering can, a little wheelbarrow and some planting tools, so she goes out to help Scott plant and prune, water plants and pick up leaves. It was so pretty outside, Scott thought it would be a good idea to grab lunch out on a patio....can't beat good food and a fun atmosphere on a gorgeous day. So we invited Scott's parents and met at Cottonwood. It's in the Heights, and during the day, is a great place where both children and adults can have a great time. People bring their dogs there, bands play, there are bean bags to toss and other games. It's just fun. They have yummy adult drinks there, a delicious grilled cheese for the kids, and a delicious burger with the most divine bacon jam. Plus, it's not in the neighborhood, so it was fun to kinda go somewhere that's not a regular place for us.

With Easter being the next day, we called it a day after that, took Aubrey home for a very late nap, and just made a pizza for dinner and stayed in the rest of the evening and even went to bed early.

Sunday, we woke up early and Scott made cinnamon roles for breakfast and we gave Aubrey her Easter basket. We are fast paced at our house so we had to jet to 9:00 Easter Mass but we made it! We came home and had Aubrey hunt for Easter eggs, which she absolutely LOVED! My sister spent the day with her in laws and my dad was working, so for lunch we had my mom over and just set out appetizers, relaxed, my mom brought over an Easter egg dying kit, so we did that which Aubrey was fascinated by, we played with play doh, and just kinda hung out doing kid stuff and relaxing.

For dinner, we headed to Scott's parents for The.Best.Barbecue.Ever. My father-in-law knows bbq. It's better than anything else I've ever had at any restaurant. He does these ribs that are just ridiculously amazing. They are sticky and fall of the bone with a sweet heat flavor. I ate every piece of meat I could from that bone. He did chicken the same way, kinda like a sweet heat flavor, it was last meal worthy. Scott's mom sealed the deal with it being the best BBQ Dinner EVER because she made her famous/always requested/never can be imitated Potatoes Au Gratin and yummy cupcakes with sparkly pink icing for Aubrey for dessert. Scott and his brother went to putt at the neighborhood golf course, so I got to have girl talk and catch up with Scott's mom over her freshly made Sangria! Speaking of Blaine in Aubrey....a little throwback picture. How cute is my baby Aubrey with Blaine.

We chatted some after dinner and headed home to get ready for the week, but ended up all going to bed immediately.
