This is Saturday, April 4, 2015!
The day my family chose to celebrate Easter with all the cousins! A massive Easter egg hunt, deviled eggs galore, an intermission with puppy cuteness, and lots of food. A super heart-warming, outdoor-lovin’ day with the family.
Totally realized I never posted this day! Sleeeeep in.
Did a bunch of cooking the night before, the kitchen was a bit messy. Clean up…
Such a lovely day today! The trees were trimmed this week, so now our kitchen is so much brighter
Join the pups back in bed with a cup of coffee
Surf instagram while my face mask settles
WHAT TO WEAR? Having a weird not-sure-if-I-like-myself-slash-my-clothes day.
I stay in the baggiest version of everything, knowing we’ll be eating a bunch at my family potluck.
Driving to the other side of Los Angeles
Spring flowers in the front yard!
My sweet Tubby! Always has to get a belly rub immediately.
Here a bit early to make a bunch of deviled eggs
The night before I boiled 24 eggs, and today I had to peel them all
Snacking on my mom’s homemade hummus
I decided I wanted to dye my deviled eggs, but the color wasn’t too strong. Oh well! I guess the pastel is pretty nice too, and very Easter-y
Eggs scooped ouuuut. So many yolks.
Sprinkled with fresh dill. Gorgeous!
So as the eggs chill we stopped by Gabby’s place to see Russ the golden doodle puppy
So hyper! We chased him around the yard but he never got tired.
Russ really loves Zach. It makes me so jealous.
Back home! Let’s get ready to go to the cousins.
Got the eggs out of the fridge, ready to go.
At my cousin’s! Unloading the car. I can hear my lil’ cousins screaming already. We’re all getting together to celebrate Easter on the Saturday before because my cousin had a new baby and we all wanted to meet her (and they could only come Saturday).
Attempting to build a giant table with blocks. It didn’t go well.
As more and more little cousins arrived it quickly got chaotic
And of course a super competitive game of hide and seek
Everybody is called downstairs for an Easter egg hunt!
Looking a bit confused but excited to get the hunt started
The new baby cousin! How sweet is that face.
From sweet to weirdo in 2 seconds
Everybody is running up and down through “the Jungle” and down by the house. So many screams of “egg! egg!”
And when the $20 egg is found, the hunt is done.
Zach’s playin’ bball with the boys
Some ham, brussel sprouts, meats, salad, fruit, potato salads, salmon…
Playing outside with the zip line!
Helping the lil’ cousins get onto the zip line.
Patiently waiting for her turn to go
She’s almost too cool to play with us. Almost.
She was obsessed! I was so surprised. She’s usually very cautious.
He was super shy on the other hand
We played until it was dark, and then we played inside some more. *Whew* Left while the kids were counting their winnings again.
Then went to head out back to my part of town
Stopped to order pho take out at one of the only open restaurants on the street
Pho on your couch with some Gilmore Girls? Doesn’t get better.
And then I’m done for. Exhausted and ready for sleep!
So grateful to have such an energetic and big family, though. 🙂
Much love friends.
