Easter Recap

One of Mama Kat’s Writing Prompts this week is “Easter Recap”.

We spent Easter afternoon at the home of one of Motor Man’s sisters. There was ample food, including this creative “Peep” cake made by one of our nieces. It wasn’t actually made of Peeps, but rather, was a delicious lemon cake.

The weather was beautiful, which enabled the little ones to play outside.  While waiting for time to hunt eggs, other uses for the Easter “buckets” were found.

Finally, it was time for the hunt! Photographers had to be quick to get a picture before the action began.

Afterward, there were hugs among cousins:

And a little “Happy” time in the bounce house.

No egg-hunting or bounce house for Motor Man and me; we were just spectators, enjoying family and the sunshine.

  14. Your post brings back memories of wonderful Easters with my family and all our cousins. Our easter egg hunt got a little shall we say enthusiastic and and all the Aunts just laughing and doing that “you’re getting hotter in your getting colder :game. I too remember putting buckets on our heads but always have and had a big head I remember getting worried about it being stuck! I remember commenting that your buckets your little nieces and nephews were huge so I hope they were able to fill them ! Beautiful pictures especially the 1 of you and Motor Man.
