A Jam Packed Easter Weekend!

This weekend was incredible! It was full of family, friends, food, and laughter! We were in Florida with my family for the Easter holiday and the only way it could have been better was if my Dad had been there.

It started out with camping at Coldwater Recreation Center for 2 days with my sister and the kiddos plus her neighbors and their kids. We slept in tents, ate good food, swam in the river, fished, and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. The campsite also let people bring their horses and the owners were gracious enough to let us pet them too. It was a blast!

After heading back to my sister's on Saturday morning we prepped everything for Easter Sunday. Later that day we had a shrimp boil at another neighbors house and then dyed Easter eggs with the kiddos that night. Dying eggs by latern light was hilarious lol.


Easter was awesome!!!! The kids hunted for eggs and were so excited for all their goodies. My sisters backyard was perfect for hiding eggs. We had 19 people at my sister's house to include most of her neighbors and our brother and his family.


We ate good food, played a few drinking games, cards against humanity and laughed A LOT!!


We even had the chance to take some family photos which I think turned out amazing!


This was the most fun we have had in a long time and it was so awesome to spend it with family and friends (well they are more like family now). I can't wait to go back and make some more awesome memories.

I hope you all had a great weekend!
