Easter Fun


Happy, happy Easter! Our Easter weekend has been perfect… Filled with family, friends, fun and food! So. Much. Food! Our Easter weekend this year was very similar to last year’s. We celebrated Saturday with brunch at our country club with some of our best friends. Blaire and Brylee donned matching dresses. AND Blaire was psyched to see the Easter bunny. She is also a pro at hunting Easter eggs. It’s always so fun to spend time at our country club, especially with my friend Jamie. It’s where Jason & I met and she was the one who introduced us… so it’s always special to be there with our families now. It’s crazy how much can change in 5 years! 
Easter 2016Easter 2016 Easter Brunch 2016I’ve mentioned it a bunch, but Jason was welcomed into the Catholic Faith at the Easter Vigil Saturday night. It was a long service (almost 3 hours!) and Blaire stayed awake through all of it. Both of my parents and my friend Katherine were there to support Jason and help us with Blaire. AND since Lent was finally over, I celebrated with a Coke on the way home from mass at 11:30PM. ;)

We slept in past 9AM today and it was amazing! I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have to get up early on Easter to be sure we were at mass on time. We hosted Easter again this year for our families. It’s so nice to not have to spend the day driving around, especially since my family lives an hour away. Too bad the weather wasn’t as sunny and beautiful as it was last year… but at least it wasn’t snowing!

Blaire was so exited when she realized the Easter Bunny had been to our house this morning. She collected eggs that led her to her Easter Basket inside her teepee. She got to have another Easter egg hunt with family later in the day. It had to be in the basement since the weather didn’t cooperate, but she didn’t mind.

    Such adorable photos, I love everyone’s dresses and all the color is awesome! I’m so glad you had such an incredible weekend filled with family, I was trying to recover from being sick (I wish we didn’t have to get a cold every year) but so glad you enjoyed yourself. I hope you drank enough wine for the both of us ;) xx

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
