Last weekend my sister and little niece stayed over. We don't see each other much and the kids always have a blast. We had a weekend of parks, hikes, and picnics at the beach. My sister's daughter, Vera, is such a sweetheart. She reminds me of Mason when he was little; so quiet, gentle, and polite.
Of course, we celebrated Easter yesterday. The kids got their sugar-laden baskets and had our egg hunt. Then we had our feast of ham and red velvet cake (Mason's absolute favorite) for dessert. This year it was only us though; no visitors or family. It was a little quiet, but also welcoming and a whole hell of a lot less stressful.
Lately it seems life is much more crazy. We have too much going on right now. I really, really savor these relaxing weekends with family. It's everything to me. I know that after we move we will see them even less, so I am lapping this up at the moment and enjoying every bit of it.
