Easter 2016

Easter Weekend was rainy this year. The Easter BBQ our church usually hosts the day before got rained out, and it poured all weekend long. So raincoats in hand, we set off for church. 

After we returned, Carson and I finished up some things for Easter dinner and then I made him take some pictures. They are not stunning, but since we weren't willing to get wet, this was as good as it got.

Excellent background here with the grilling things and a garbage can.

Carson made mashed potatoes the night before, but was disappointed in himself for not having any gravy. We left the potatoes to warm in the crockpot while we were at church. When we returned, I suggested the addition of cheese, chives and sour cream (I think?) and then we threw them in the oven for a little bit. They were delicious and no one missed the gravy.

The deviled eggs and I suited up to brave the rain.

We had potatoes, deviled eggs, salad and a lamb roast at Josh and Christina's. The lamb was apparently a first-time try and it was so good.

After lunch, we sat around and talked and looked at pictures, then we dyed eggs. Grandmama usually buys me egg dyeing kits for my birthday, so we put it to good use!

We stayed quite late at Josh and Christina's. It's nice to have friends where the time gets away from you as you enjoy time together.

When we got home, we sat on the couch and went through our book of questions while Carson rested his left foot. He injured it again at the end of February and his doctor advised him to ice it and elevate it as much as possible.

Easter weekend was restful, focused, and quiet. We greatly enjoyed our time with friends, and we had a lovely weekend!
