I know Easter is past, but I never posted about it. We were in NY at my mom’s and she and my 14 year old son, B, went crazy making a huge scavenger hunt for each person to go on Easter morning in order to find their basket. Everybody was given a plastic egg and inside of it was the first clue. Those lead to the next and so on, inside and outside, until we finally reached our baskets.
They spent HOURS writing clues and hiding the eggs for nine people- they even made up scavenger hunts for Aaron and I!
My oldest two boys were teamed up with the youngest two, since the twins don’t read. Mia and O paired up as well. Lili was given like five times as many clues as everyone else, just because they thought it would be funny if it took her forever, but since she was on her own and not following two sets of clues like the other kids, she sped through them and was done around the same time as the rest of us!
It was so much fun!
Later that afternoon, when everyone was full of candy, we started on dinner. Easter dinner is my favorite of all the holiday dinners because of the HAM.
My all-time favorite meal is ham, cheesy scalloped potatoes, and peas. It’s perfection. I always request it for my birthday dinner, I’d rather eat it than go out to dinner.
There’s not much better in life than your favorite meal cooked by your mom!
How was your Easter this year? And what’s your favorite meal?
