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.

Enjoy!

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…

_MG_0203
Such a lovely day today! The trees were trimmed this week, so now our kitchen is so much brighter

WHAT TO WEAR? Having a weird not-sure-if-I-like-myself-slash-my-clothes day.

_MG_0293
I stay in the baggiest version of everything, knowing we’ll be eating a bunch at my family potluck.

_MG_0305
_MG_0308
Let’s go!

_MG_0319
Oh hey Zeen

_MG_0339
Driving to the other side of Los Angeles

_MG_0348
Spring flowers in the front yard!

_MG_0354
My sweet Tubby! Always has to get a belly rub immediately.

_MG_0357
Here a bit early to make a bunch of deviled eggs

_MG_0359
The night before I boiled 24 eggs, and today I had to peel them all

_MG_0361
Oh yeaaaah #eggporn

_MG_0364

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

_MG_0376

Eggs scooped ouuuut. So many yolks.

_MG_0390
Sprinkled with fresh dill. Gorgeous!

_MG_0395
Snow came out!

_MG_0399
So as the eggs chill we stopped by Gabby’s place to see Russ the golden doodle puppy

_MG_0403
He’s such a naughty puppy!!!!

_MG_0409
_MG_0411
_MG_0416
So hyper! We chased him around the yard but he never got tired.

_MG_0419
Proud mama Gabby

His paws!!

_MG_0464
Russ really loves Zach. It makes me so jealous.

_MG_0468
Back home! Let’s get ready to go to the cousins.

_MG_0470
Got the eggs out of the fridge, ready to go.

_MG_0480
_MG_0482
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.

_MG_0503
_MG_0508
As more and more little cousins arrived it quickly got chaotic

_MG_0515
Running around ensued

_MG_0527
And of course a super competitive game of hide and seek

_MG_0534
Everybody is called downstairs for an Easter egg hunt!

_MG_0540
Looking a bit confused but excited to get the hunt started

_MG_0542
The new baby cousin! How sweet is that face.

_MG_0544
_MG_0546
And OFF THEY GO!

_MG_0553
_MG_0554
From sweet to weirdo in 2 seconds

_MG_0559
_MG_0561
_MG_0562
Everybody is running up and down through “the Jungle” and down by the house. So many screams of “egg! egg!”

_MG_0570
_MG_0573
_MG_0575
*Squeeeee* So many emotions

_MG_0581
_MG_0582
And when the $20 egg is found, the hunt is done.

_MG_0586
_MG_0588
Everybody reviews their finds

_MG_0592

Patiently waiting for her turn to go

_MG_0707
Hahah

_MG_0740
She’s almost too cool to play with us. Almost.

_MG_0752
She was obsessed! I was so surprised. She’s usually very cautious.

_MG_0756
He was super shy on the other hand

_MG_0765
We played until it was dark, and then we played inside some more. *Whew* Left while the kids were counting their winnings again.

_MG_0773
Walked home!

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.
