Today, I am sharing the last bit of our Easter weekend festivities. I honestly didn't intend to spend two whole days talking about Easter, but with the length one post would have ended up being (and the amount of pictures it would have encompassed), it just worked out better to split it up. If you haven't read the first part of our Easter recap, you can find that here.
On Easter Sunday after church, my family and I headed to Villa Christina in Atlanta. This restaurant holds a special place in my heart, as it is where my sister held a beautiful bridal shower for me, and also where B and I spent our first Easter as a married couple. This Easter brunch at Villa Christina was the second one there with my family. And the first with Caleb, of course! And we had so much fun. The restaurant is beautiful, and was all decked out for Easter. And the food was delicious. Here are a few shots from our brunch.
After we finished up brunch, we headed back to my parents house and began packing up to head out. We still had two more families to visit, so we had to hit the road. Our first stop was B's grandparents, Mawmaw and David's house. All of B's dad's side of the family were gathered there. They had already eaten their Easter lunch, but were just hanging out, and were thrilled to get a chance to spend some time with Caleb. It's not often that the entire family can get together, so we were glad to get to see everyone. I did not manage to take any photos there so I have none to share of that get together.
After leaving Mawmaw and David's, we headed to B's other grandparents' house - Dosh and Pawpaw's - where B's mom's side of the family was gathered. Caleb opened yet another couple of baskets there (one from Nonna, and one from Dosh).
We had a big Easter dinner there (though B and I were definitely not feeling too hungry at that point), and then Caleb did an egg hunt out in the yard. It was too cute. Instead of a bunch of candy - which he can't eat - B's mom and grandmother hid things like mini apple juices and organic food pouches. Things we will be sure to use in the coming weeks! B and I did remember to get out the camera for that.
You may be able to tell from the pictures, but Caleb did seem to 'get' what was going on this time around a bit better than he did at the church Easter egg hunt. At least he knew to drop the eggs into the bucket, that is! As you can imagine, after all of the festivities of the day, we were all pretty worn out, and our little man was out for the count as soon we hopped into the car for the ride home. B and I always say that we won't do all the running around at every holiday, but we always end up doing it anyways. We never want to miss spending quality time with any of our family, so although all the running isn't the easiest - especially now with a baby in tow - it's worth it. Our little man is so loved. And we are so lucky to have family who just wants to spend time with us. We will never take that for granted.
I am hoping to have Caleb's 11 month update up tomorrow, so be sure to pop back by for that. Hope you're all having a wonderful week!
