Spring Break 2012 - Day 9 - Happy Easter

We arrived at the final leg of our vacation pretty late the night before Easter.  It was about a twelve hour ride from Aunt Dutch's to my parents house.  We wanted to be there for Easter. Spending Easter driving in the car all day didn't sound very fun.  The kids actually slept in until the sun came up on Easter morning.  Then, the hunt was on!

After the Easter basket excitement, most of us went to church.  Then we had a huge Easter brunch made by my mom.  We had ham, egg casseroles, a couple different kinds of homemade breads, shrimp,  deviled eggs, hash browns, a huge desert spread and an egg shaped birthday cake.

This year Aunt Kristen's birthday was actually on Easter.  So, in addition to the Easter celebration, it was also a birthday party!

We visited and partied and relaxed for most of the day.  Then it was time to get back in the car and head home.  The next day was back to reality - school, work, unpacking, laundry, laundry, laundry, kids activities, cooking, cleaning.  It was definitely a fun vacation.  It's amazing how fast they fly by.  We can't wait for our summer vacation up north with the extended family!
