Do you have one of those family’s that loves to mess with you, in a good way? I do, big time!
Yesterday [Easter] was yet another day of driving for the H family, it seems like that is all we do nowadays. Easter and Christmas consist of the same commuting routine because of their distance from home base; 10am to my parents for brunch then B’s parents for dinner and home by 8pm.
So, yesterday, we headed to my parents at 10am to have fried bacon and AMAZING homemade/handmade cinnamon rolls [a la DJ Grumpy Pants, aka. my baby brother]; I would have caught a shot for you all, but once the icing was down those babies were gone! Johnny and I worked on the blog [updating the widgets and viewing 404's we wish we would have come up with] and B, Mom and Dad watched some of the Astros game and some of the inside of their eye-lids.
We trotted out to my in-laws around 2pm, another 50 miles in the bucket… but, on the way there we realized B’s phone was missing. SO, I called back and left a voice message at my parents to check the couch where the siesta took place and the countertop where the snacks were loaded. No biggie, we’re sure it was left there somewhere… and then I realized I left my camera too, what a big fat bummer.
So, no pictures of my sweet little muffin on her first actual Easter egg hunt. She was pretty cute and loves me [and chocolate] dearly, just saying. We chowed on Easter enchiladas and fajitas which were pretty good since I was SUPER full after the first go-round but went back for seconds [the scale did not lie last night!]; my sweet niece was supposed to rise early to make spring rolls, but they did not make… thank goodness! Oink Oink.
Before we left, I checked my phone to see if my mom had called with info on the missing phone, to which I had a voice mail from B [which couldn't be B because he didn't have is phone], here is the message: “HHHHHHhhhhhhhhEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!” click. Oh… No…
We got back to my parents around 7pm to pick up our fur-kid, the cell phone… and my camera. Oh No x2! Luckily, everybody and everything was still in one piece and having a good ol’ time still with my camera.
Just FYI, don’t leave anything anywhere that you don’t want tainted with sap and your brother’s face, like below:
In case you are wondering, that is 133 pictures of my sweet little brother, sister, mom and dad. Lucky. Me!
You can go here to see all of them close up – Lucky you!
I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend with your family!
