That title pretty much sums up my weekend. On Saturday, we made the 2.5 hour trip north to meet our new grandchild. It was worth every second of the drive, too! She is beautiful and also poses very nicely for the camera already. Here are a couple of shots of our beautiful Allana:
Our gifts to the new baby included a healthy amount of pink and, of course, bunnies to mark her arrival during the Easter season. (Very special people are born at Easter. I, myself, was born on Easter Day. My daughter was born the day after Easter and now Allana has been born just three days before.) Bunnies, bunnies, everywhere!
On the way home, we celebrated my birthday early. We had reservations at The Pear Tree. Ah, bliss! It was amazing, as always. My teenage son described his filet mignon as “the best thing I’ve ever had on a fork.” I guess that pretty much describes it!
It was a long day and Easter morning arrived earlier than most. We had to get up and around in order to be at sunrise services at church by 6:30 a.m. I also had to get up early enough to make a hash brown casserole to take along for the breakfast. So, the day went something like this:
4:30 a.m. Get up and make casserole
6:00 a.m. Leave for church
6:30 a.m. Sing solo at sunrise service
6:30-7:30 Play piano for the rest of the service
7:30 Church breakfast (eat hash brown casserole)
8:30 Sunday School
9:30 Church service (sang another solo and played piano)
11:00 a.m. Get home and start lunch to celebrate Easter and my daughter’s birthday
12:30 Eat lunch, open packages, eat cake, do dishes, etc.
The rest of the day was spent pretty much lounging around and being lazy. I was too tired to get excited about much else. All in all, a pretty eventful weekend!
