Happy Easter!

Spring Break is officially over and it went by so quickly! We stayed home the first few days to try to catch up on a few things and get a little rest and to get ready for our road trip.

We left for Virginia on Wednesday morning and took the shortest route which I really dislike the most. The Ohio Turnpike is bad enough, full of construction barrels and very little construction and the Pennsylvania Turnpike is even worse. I'm always so glad when we are finally able to GET OFF, 8 hours later! We made really good time and arrived at Amber's by 5:30.

We were so busy I didn't even remember to take any pictures really until Saturday! I think I might haven taken a few pictures with my phone. Thursday Amber and Andy headed off to work and Grandpa and I stayed home with Quinn. We took her to the park, the library and then to Chipoltle for lunch. She had so much fun showing Grandpa around the park and library.

On Friday Amber worked from home and H spent the day putting new doors and drawer fronts on Amber and Andy's kitchen cabinets. They are thinking about selling their house and Amber scooped up a neighbors old cabinet doors which were just like hers but in better shape. The kitchen looked great when he was finished, just like new.

On Saturday morning we headed out to the Farmer's Market to look around.

Quinn enjoyed some freshly made doughnuts! The azaleas were in full bloom so we took the opportunity for a family picture!

Then it was off to the Easter Egg Hunt!!

A picture with the Easter Bunny was first on the agenda. We really lucked out because Amber and Quinn were like 3rd in line and after the hunt the line was probably 50 long!
The area where Quinn was looking was for 3 and under and the directions were no parents, just kids. Immediately all the parents jumped in running around with their children helping them pick up candy and eggs. I swear the whole thing was over in 5 minutes!

Quinn was a bit shell-shocked but I think she had a good time.

From the Easter egg hunt we headed back home to color eggs and make some deviled eggs.

Last night we went out to dinner and then Amber and I went to see The Hunger Games. The movie was good but the book was so much better.

This morning we had time for a quick Easter egg hunt but then Grandpa and I had to get goin' hitting the road and Quinn and family were headed off to church.

It was a long day of driving but we were happy to have good weather and not too much drama and we were so happy to get home! Scott took good care of the pups, the house looks no worse for wear and it's back to work tomorrow.
