How We Spent Our Easter Weekend #UBP13

Last year, we went to SpringFest and participated in their Easter egg hunt but some of us came home cranky and overwhelmed so this year we tried to find something better. Unfortunately we were unable to find a small spring festival that was not held at a church so we opted to go park hopping with our puppies on Saturday.

Our first stop was a semi-deserted park that contained a ton of sports fields so we took the opportunity to take a group shot of the boys and the puppies. Afterwards we hit a few other parks including one that had a group of people celebrating spring by throwing paint at each other.

If we stare long enough the ants might notice us.

Sunday morning we had a quiet start to our day with Easter baskets and family time. In the late afternoon, Tim hid plastic Easter eggs outside for the boys. We sat down to a fantastic meal of spiral ham, au gratin potatoes, red hot southern sweet potatoes, and rolls.

Hello Angi and Tim. What a great Blog you have here, and a beautiful family! As a new blogger, I can see that I can learn a lot from the two of you. I am visiting you from UBP and will be returning to read more!


Sounds like you had a great Easter weekend. My family did an outdoor Easter Egg hunt that is an annual tradition for everyone’s children. I loved being able to spend time with my family, but I was definitely glad for it to end. Dad needed to catch up on some rest after the long weekend….sigh

We’ve done our own Easter egg hunts with the boys annually, too. And they spend the days after easter hiding eggs in the house for each other.

Your sons are so handsome. Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter. I love love love your puppies.

I’ve just starting sharing more about our puppies. And now that Starlet’s gotten a taste of riding to a park, she wants to get in the car every time we leave the house. She’s sneaks in when you turn your back.

I’ll take the heat over snow any day. But that’s probably due to being raised in the hot and dry southwest. Thanks for stopping by and for hosting such an awesome event.

Hi, I’m here through UBP2013 🙂

I’m currently in Arizona, we’re stationed at Luke AFB, so it was neat reading that you grew up in AZ. Cute kids, and dogs 🙂

Have a great weekend, and if you wish, feel free to come by my blog and say hi 🙂

Welcome! Cute photos – kids, dogs, or food – always attract my attention so I tend to share them on occasion.

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be dropping by your blog soon!
