Easter Weekend With Family

Is the weekend really over already? Man, it was a really great weekend with family and great food and weather. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Friday afternoon started with a walk with B and FW. We hit up a local candy store that we had never been too – look at their soda collection! Do you see the sweet corn and peanut butter flavors?

We also looked around for some Easter stuff. FW was not impressed by the bunny ears 🙂

We then met up with my parents and brother who were in town! We enjoyed sushi for dinner.

Some of the bazillion pieces of sushi we got.

It was passed FW’s bedtime, but he got a story read by grandpa. 

Saturday morning started with a short walk around downtown for breakfast and then coffee with my brother. It is SO SO good to see him. He lives in Germany, so seeing him even for just a little over a day was great.

My brother had to go to the Apple store to get his laptop fixed before heading back to Germany, so while he was there, my mom and I got in a little retail therapy. What do you think of this dress?

We then got lunch at Boaz, one of my favorites. I love their fresh, cheap food.  This is  a sad with chicken, pickled veggies, hot sauce, beans, lentils, quinoa, tabbouleh and baba. 

We spent the afternoon walking around Ohio City and the West Side Market and then relaxing. For dinner, we ended up making grilled cheese which were SO GOOD. They definitely hit the spot. 

Sunday morning came early – B and I had DOUBLE the brunch plans! First, an early brunch with my parents and brother before they headed out.

And then after Mass, Easter brunch with B’s family.

Which included some sticky buns AND a snooze with Francis and Grandma.

We finished up with brunch around 5 and then went out for a walk. It was another beautiful day and great to be outside again for a perfect way to end the weekend.

Some questions for you:

  • Do you like Peeps?
  • What’s your favorite Easter candy?

I’m linking up with Katie and the weekly wraps.

  1. I love FW’s two toned shoes! He is so cute. It’s wonderful you were able to spend some time with your brother this weekend! And, I like the black dress. I do not like Peeps. My favorite Easter candy are Robin Eggs (Whoppers). Thanks for linking, Melissa!
