Happy Easter 2009! We had a very nice Easter weekend this year which started off by receiving this lovely card below in the mail on Saturday morning from Laura…
Next on Saturday morning, Tim was playing golf, so I decided to load the boys in the car after they woke up and drive up to IKEA (we had mcdonalds in the car for breakfast…bad mom). We LOVE IKEA! I love the swedish modern design and Hayden loves to play in the play area with the swimming pool of balls.
Below are some pics of the IKEA adventure. We played with toys, had swedish meatballs and macaroni & cheese for lunch, and got to sit on the Easter Bunny’s lap!! We also got some free IKEA balloons and some face painting in.
On the way home, we stopped in Lockhart, TX (in between Austin and San Antonio) and purchased some retro 1950’s Burke/Tulip chairs that I saw advertised on Craigslist ($25!). I was excited to find them. It took us longer to get home than usual, because we took a wrong turn on I-10 and started going toward Houston! It was still worth it though. I am going to clean up/fix up the chairs (going to paint the orange chair white also) and make new cushions for them with Amy Butler fabric one of these days.
On Sunday morning we all woke up, discovered Easter baskets and had a little indoor easter egg hunt (since the grass outside was still wet from rain the night before).
Later that morning on Sunday we went to church with our friends Steve, Cheryl & their 2 kids and then went over to their house after church for a texas style brisket and corn-on-the-cob barbeque. The boys had fun in the backyard doing more easter egg hunting.
My three favorite pics from the weekend:
