Easter Weekend

As a family we are not religious so the Easter we celebrate is the commercial version. We love the egg hunts, candy, brunches, friends, Easter bunny and spending time as a family. This was our 2nd year attending the egg hunt at Cathedral Oaks and it was even better than last year. This year Connor really understood what was going on and was really excited to see his friends and get treats.

Sammy, TJ and Connor.

Sam had her own strategy to the bag toss. She did her own version "place bag in hole get candy". Rules schmules anything for candy.

Connor was very focused on collecting eggs, but what slowed him down was opening and eating each one as he gathered his collection.

Pretty ladies.

Little Leila's 1st egg hunt and she slept through the whole thing.

Phil, Tim, Maggie getting a little easter bunny love.

After the egg hunt we stayed and had brunch while the kids commandeered a tennis court next to the cafe area. It was so nice to have a relaxing brunch while the kids ran off some sugar.

These guys ran back and forth screaming and laughing for just over an hour then it was time to head home for a nap.

Easter Sunday we had a relaxing brunch at home with chocolate drizzled country bread french toast with strawberries and cream, bacon and eggs. Ymmmmm.

Then we made our way to the harbor and went whaling watching on the Condor Express.
We saw a Grey Whale, 2 Humpback whales and a pod of at least 100 dolphins as well as many sea lions. We didn't get the best pix but the link at the bottom has some more from our trip.
Connor loved being on the boat and kept telling me "I had so much fun on the boat with you mommy".
