We had a great Easter this year! We spent lots of time with family and enjoyed some great food, as usual. Saturday night I tried dying Easter eggs with Luca, but it was past his bedtime and he wasn't all that interested in it. Oh well, he is only 5 months old. I'm sure there will be plenty of egg dying in the years to come :-)
We got up bright and early on Sunday morning and drove up to Cle Elum to go to 8:00 Mass with Tony's family. After church, we hung out, took pictures and had a delicious brunch of scrambled eggs, sausage, fresh fruit and homemade huckleberry muffins.
That evening, my dad, sister and brother-in-law came over to our house for dinner. Tony smoked a ham on the BBQ and we had twice-baked potatoes, grilled asparagus and fruit salad along with it. For dessert I made a triple-layer coconut cake from scratch. It turned out to be a lot more work than I expected and the final result looked nothing the picture in Better Homes & Gardens magazine, which is where I got the idea and recipe. Oh well, it tasted good so I guess that is what is important. By the end of the evening, Luca was exhausted and so were we! It was a great day to spend with family, celebrating the amazing sacrifice that Jesus made for us.
Mom, I am so done with this!
Our Easter Baskets :-)
Looking cute as ever in their Easter outfits.
It will be so much fun next Easter when we can do an Easter Egg Hunt with these two (and Leo).

Checking out his Easter basket.
Of course he was more interested in the "grass" than anything else in the basket :-)
