Three days into my four day long weekend, and I am feeling totally relaxed. There’s nothing better than a long weekend where you get to do multiple things that you enjoy. On Thursday night Bryan arrived home from college, and we enjoyed sitting around the dinner table catching up as a family. Friday was just a day to relax (reading for me and video games for the boys) until Bryan’s girlfriend Cayley arrived, and then we all hit the road to go and see the movie, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, an action packed, good old fun time!
Saturday was a beautiful, sunny day, so we all decided to head outdoors and enjoy the weather. Bryan and Cayley went for a walk, and Mike and I tackled our cars which are generally quite disgusting after a Canadian winter. It always feels so awesome to get that first major cleanup done in the Spring. While we enjoyed Mother Nature’s good mood, Mike’s delectable turkey was cooking inside, and that night we all sat down to an amazing Easter dinner that left us all groaning from eating too much :). After supper, Bryan and Cayley left for their second Easter with her family, and I spent the night relaxing with a good book.
Today we headed out for a visit with Mike’s mom and sister, taking them care packages full of Easter leftovers. We hadn’t seen Mike’s mom since before our trip to South Carolina, so we had some little gifts for them and tons of photos to share with them. After a wonderful homemade turkey noodle soup for dinner tonight, I am now ensconced on the couch anxiously awaiting the season finale of The Walking Dead and the season premiere of Game of Thrones. I can’t wait!! Tomorrow, Mike has to work so the house will be totally quiet (LOL :)), and I am going to work on my editing job and read all day long!! Ahhhhhh!
So, seeing as I am feeling totally relaxed and at peace, I thought I would continue on from the other day and post a photo that creates the same type of feeling. Every morning while we were in South Carolina, Mike and I headed down to the beach first thing to capture the sunrise. Although the actual sunrise is gorgeous, the early morning sunlight hitting the beach shortly after the sunrise can be spectacular as well. Here is one of my favourites that makes me sigh in happiness :). I hope you enjoy it, and I hope that if you are celebrating Easter you are having a great one!
