Easter, Easter! Read All About It!

I know I'm super lame for the title of this post. Forgive me for my "creativity".

 This was such an eventful Easter.

We woke up and gave Natalie her basket.She was really fond of the fishing game, not so much anything else.

Then my friend Zalina and her family came over (husband, three children and mother in law) and we all hung around the house since the weather sucked (chilly and rainy). We snacked on some tasty appetizers, took a few pictures outside, and then hid some eggs in my tiny living room for the kid's to find. Natalie really liked egg hunting, and asked for "more" after each egg she found. 

After they left Natalie took a nap and when she woke we decided to go see my parents, sister and nieces. We hung out with them for a few hours and that was interesting as always.
After we left my parents we went to Matt's parents for dinner and then headed back home. It was a good day filled with family and food and that's what life is really all about!

My friend Zalina and her family!

Curly haired nieces.

Sorry the weather was no good! But Natalie still looked adorable in her little dress!!

Glad you had a wonderful Easter. I keep seeing all my bloggy friends taking great family pictures and realize that we never take them ourselves. I gotta get on that.

Also, you may have convinced me to get that fishing puzzle thingy.

Gorgeous family picture! And the niece to the left of the picture looks so much like you!

Jealous that it was warm enough for Natalie to go sleeveless !!!!

Sounds like a busy, but great day. Your family must live close if you were able to visit with so many of them. We drove two hours each way to eat with my family. Worth it, but barely.
Your nieces are adorable! I love everyone's dresses. Hell, I love any occasion that means you put kids in dresses.

Sounds like a fun Easter. And that easter dress is just adorable!

Easter always makes me wish I had a little girl, I love seeing sweet little things in their Easter dresses. Natalie looks adorable! Glad you had a good one!

Great family picture Sean! Your ho-has looks amazeballs (hope that's not awkward but you know me and my 'no filter') as does your hair! :)

I hate that the weather was so crappy on Sunday but her dress is just adorable!

Sean Marie April 3, 2013 at 12:51 PM  

We only stepped outside to take pictures. It probably wasn't as warm as it should have been for me to let her wear that outta the house without a jacket, but I had to get a couple pics! :p

Sean Marie April 3, 2013 at 12:52 PM  

Yep, we're really lucky to be so close to family. Matt's parent's live two blocks from us, and my parent's live about 15 minutes away from us too!

Sean Marie April 3, 2013 at 12:53 PM  

Haha, not awkward at all! Thanks for the compliments, I love being told I've got a nice rack and hair. :)

Sean Marie April 3, 2013 at 12:54 PM  

Yep, I'm really hoping it warms up by this Sunday for us or I'm going to have to kick the weather's ass! ;)

HOLY LORD, that's a beautiful baby!! I am back to blogging after the divorce has been finalized and all that business has been getting resolved. I've missed you so much and really am going to try and keep up with you better from here out!! I'm so happy to see that you and your fabulous family are doing well and that you had such a pleasant Easter. :)

Fiona April 4, 2013 at 10:01 PM  

Wow, you are such a beautiful family!! :) Glad you managed to get outside even for some photos. Sounds like a really nice Easter! Oh and I agree with the comment about your rack from Sarah above! ;) I feel like I'll never get these things perked up again... which I am probably right to think! :/
