the easter eve portion


Morning brought Beth and Colton and breakfast followed immediately  by a magician. A Slyvester Stalone look-a-like and possibly a moonlighting stripper. He did his thing (almost all clothes stayed on I am happy to report) and then there was an egg hunt!!! Letty and David were in the same age group and got quite a share of the booty. I probably should have put her into the three and up category but hey! There is always next year! Right family? Woo hooo?

After the above lunch and a lot of Easter Bunny shenanigans we spent the next three plus hours in the pool. Baking. Turning pruney. The like. Letty became quite obsessed with my cousin Nina, and who can blame her? She is 16 and gorgeous.  I kinda want to be Nina when I grow up. Letty referred to Nina as any one of the following during our visit: my friend, my sister, my sweetheart. Stage five clinger my daughter. Also...we have the first sighting of the Sauder belly.

After we were all a sufficient shade of lobster we headed to City Place for dinner at Il Bellagio. After some phenomenal food we walked down the street to a place called Revolution. All the cool kids played arcade games. And all the young kids threw coins in the fountains and made wishes.

And that is Easter Eve. Or how it's done in my family this particular year.



  1. too much gorgeousness for me to handle :)

  2. Looks like such a fun time! I've decided from your posts that we need to start going away for Easter. Makes the Holiday that much more fun, and LMAO at the Sylvestor look a like comment, He most likely is a stripper in his "spare time" HAHA!

  3. So many awesome pictures! This must of been a really great day. Love to one of Letty and your cousin, too sweet.

  4. Great pictures! So many pretty dresses all around! Loved Lettys strawberry dress...too cute! Beth looks great! Love the baby bump :) I could spend Easter there every year.

  5. Holy easter eggs batman!!! How fun! And the stripper comment...LOL!!!!

  6. What a great trip! Love your little family pic!

    And that egg hunt? That is MY kinda egg hunt! PS I see D is following in his mamas footsteps with that little arm tat ;)

  7. Easter hunts for the wee ones always make me laugh, with eggs every 3 inches. Super hard to find! Super cute that Letty attached herself to Nina. I'm hoping Aria gets 'cousin' crushes one of these days! Really anybody would do, she is so quiet and shy.


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
