What a GORGEOUS day to celebrate Easter!
We all gathered at my Aunt and Uncle’s beautiful house for an outdoor Easter picnic near the water.
Their property sits right on the Indian River and always makes for a picturesque party location. Nothing, but water and sunshine as far as the eye can see.
This is my cousin’s little girl, Lexie.
Lexie likes to flip.
Lexie likes the water.
Lexie, also, LOVES bubbles.
Oh, to be three again. 🙂
Oh, and Lexie likes chocolate eggs.
So does Lilly. 🙂
I had a couple of chocolate eggs and some of my Mom’s homemade spinach artichoke dip while we waited to eat.
Slowly, everyone began to fill in and the food tables filled up.
My plate had a little bit of everything.
With the majority of the plate going to the colorful salad my cousin prepared.
The Chilled Lemon Asparagus dish I prepared was a crowd pleaser. Thank you Sarah for sharing the recipe! 🙂
An Easter Cupcake, Grandma’s Upside Doen Pineapple, and Lemon Cake. I was in dessert heaven. 🙂
After dinner came my favorite part – hiding of the Easter eggs!!
Can you spot them?
Ok, I lied. My favorite part isn’t hiding the eggs, it’s setting the kids loose hunting for them!
(this is only a few of the 100+ photos I took of the kids looking for them!)
Remember that Paula Dean Coffee Float my Dad was experimenting with yesterday?
He was ready to put it to the test.
- One part cool coffee
- One part milk
- Chocolate Syrup
Mixed and poured over vanilla ice cream.
Mmm…. Derek and I shared. 🙂
After coffee we said our good byes.
Then drove the 2.5 hrs back to Tampa.
I want something light for dinner. Maybe sweet potato fries or a nice bowl of oatmeal? Both sound good right now.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday!
