Easter Weekend {2017}

IMG 8836

I’ve been pretty terrible at sharing day-to-day life sorts of things recently…  When I do actually find the time blog, I seem to share mostly kids’ activities, which means that all of the fun milestones, monthly Sam updates, and birthday celebrations get to continue their stay in my drafts folder. :/  The thing is, when I go back and look through the now thousands of posts on my site, it’s the more personal posts that I love best.  The ones that tell about our decision to move back to Kuwait or how Miss G puked all over me while riding the metro home from the Eiffel Tower or how we told Grae she was going to be a big sister or about finally bringing Sam home.  And so, my effort to share more of our personal family life begins once again…  with our recent Easter weekend. {And gosh, was it ever a good one.}

While we had originally thought we’d head home to the Okanagan for Easter weekend, Brad’s parents ended up coming down and joining us on our Sunshine Coast trip over spring break, so we decided to stay in Vancouver and have my mom over from the island this time around.  Thankfully the weather was much better than expected which meant loads of time outdoors, and in my opinion, that always makes for a great weekend.

Here’s a peek at our Easter 2017…
