Happy Easter! Okay, so it's a day late. Nonetheless, Happy Easter!
The Higham's had a pretty full weekend of events , starting with Good Friday and wrapping up on Sunday with our Easter celebration. We wanted to take a few minutes to share some of the craziness that found it's way into the Higham House.
After spending some time on Saturday visiting Chick-Fil-A (a blog that we're working on for later this week) and a little window shopping at some of our favorite stores, we settled in at home to tackle some last minute chores and an eventful time of egg dying.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous. It came pretty close to 60˚, so Amy decided that we should dye our eggs outside. And it was a pretty good idea considering what unfolded.
The next thing we knew, Nate was tossing one of his eggs into the air. With each toss the egg went higher and a little more out of control. Then it happened. The egg came down on the roof and rolled down into the gutter. This gave Nate the perfect excuse to climb up on the roof. And his did.
But remember those air-soft guns? Well, now they were pointed towards the moving target who was running across the roof. Smart? Probably not. Stupid? Yep. Hilarious? ABSOLUTELY!! It was pretty funny, especially when he took a shot dead-center in his chest. Perfect shot!
Easter Sunday begins with church. As usual, Jay was up and out, leaving Amy and the kids to get ready and follow behind when they were ready. And as our custom, all 5 assembled for the family Easter picture. For kicks, I went and found a picture from Easter Sunday 2010. It's fun to see just how much they've grown in just 6 years!
And there were the Easter baskets. Simple, yet delicious. We've never been big on the overflowing Easter baskets. The kids get just enough to enjoy their favorite candies, along with some yummies that Amy whips up. (And those yummies ARE YUMMY!)
What would Easter be without an Easter egg hunt? Grandmom came through as usual with her amazing Easter box filled with eggs and goodies. So after church (and after Jay got home) Logan set up the egg hunt for Breya, Asher, and Aiden.
After the egg hunt, we piled into the van and headed out for our tradition of eating Easter dinner at a restaurant. Easter is the one holiday where we set aside some money and plan to eat out. This give everyone, especially Amy, a chance to relax and not have to worry about being in the kitchen.
This year, we visited Primanti Bros., one of our favorite local eateries. Known for their amazing sandwiches, Primanti's is a Pittsburgh treasure, and we are more than happy to enjoy a Pittsburgh treasure!
The night wrapped up with a visit from some dear friends and some yummy desserts. It was great catching up while all the kids played. We even caught up on some back episodes of Fear the walking Dead.
All in all, it was a great Easter. Every moment was a memory-maker moment. From working around the house to the chaotic moments of insanity to the time when we were able to simply sit and laugh or watch a movie or enjoy the front porch swing, every moment sweet and wonderful.
