Easter at the Lula Beach House!

So this past weekend for Easter, Forrest and I drove down to Amberly and Aaron's beach house to celebrate Easter with his family. We had so much fun! On Sat. we ate lunch, let the boys go through their Easter baskets from Lala and Pop Pop, and then Big Forrest and I went with Aaron and Forrest to watch them surf at Surfside Beach. Forrest wore a wet suit at first- hahahaha! And then changed out of it later to see how cold the water was. I was only able to get one good shot of him standing up! While we were gone, Amberly, Cheri, and the boys colored Easter eggs.

Then that night we all sat down and had dinner, and afterwards played a few games of Spoons! That was a BLAST! I thought I would be the first one out everytime since I am not that aggressive but surprisingly, I didn't do that bad! Forrest and Aaron ended up winning the most amount of times and you know they definitely reminded everyone of it! But with this family during games like this, the more crap talking the better! I am still learning how to get good at that!

After the games, we decided to watch the movie "Yes Man" and right smack in the middle of it the whole house goes pitch black! We looked out the windows and realized that as far as you could see down the island, it was completely dark. It had been really windy all day so that was most likely what caused it but luckily we had this huge flash light that Amberly had bought Aaron for Chrismas. It literally looked like the batman light if you shined it in the sky! The guys had a little fun with it while Amberly lit EVERY candle she could find in the house and then about 10 min later, the lights came back on. At least we were prepared! We ended up just finishing our movie and since it was pretty late, going to bed afterwards.

The next morning on Easter Sunday, we woke up early and let the boys go through their Easter baskets from Mommy and Daddy. Then we watched and helped them have an Easter egg hunt downstairs. It was funny because Aiden is really "perfect" and tidy while Ashty is a little monster, rough, and messy. Aiden was being choosy over which eggs he wanted to pick up- either they weren't the right color or they were "too dirty- ewww" and Ashty was just roaming all over the place picking up whatever we pointed out to him. Mark one on the tally board for Ashtie for winning this year! After the egg hunt, Big Forrest took us to an Easter brunch at a nice hotel and it was AMAZING. I had four plates of food. They had everything from sushi to belgian waffles with whipped cream! I felt like I had a day's worth of food in one meal!

We left Sunday afternoon to come back to C.S. and look back on a fun and special Easter weekend. Family times are the best and I know there are many more to come! :)
