Easter weekend wrap-up

I hope that everyone enjoyed Resurrection/Easter Weekend!

This was our first Easter in Jersey City and we enjoyed it. Our festivities began on Thursday with a play date that I hosted for our local moms group to participate in egg coloring and stuffing with Brandon and I.  This is a first for Brandon as he never colored/dyed eggs before and of course he was not really into this activity as much as I was. However, I was happy to be making memories with my son on his first time coloring eggs. We donated the eggs to our church for the Easter egg hunts. Here are some pictures:

The hubby had Good Friday off and we enjoyed some family time with just the three of us. We took Brandon to Lincoln Park for a play date that was hosted by a member of the local moms’ group.

We had lunch at a local pizzeria in our neighborhood and later on Friday night I had to get ready to participate in the first performance of the fairy tale Easter play that my church put on. It was awesome and we had a packed house on Friday night.

Saturday we had breakfast at the Brownstone Diner & Pancake Factory, which was featured in Diners, drive-ins, and dives. Later in the day I decided to make our Easter dinner because I knew that we would be busy on Sunday. I made a slow cooker whole chicken with carrots and potatoes, and rice and peas. The chicken was very tender and the taste was great and it was easy to prep. I'll probably add some new ingredients to the recipe the next time I make this, but since this was my first time I didn't want to deviate from the recipe at all. I also participated in our fairy tale Easter play on Saturday night and again we had a packed house.

Sunday I participated in and all three shows of our fairy tale Easter play at 10 am, 12 pm, and 2 pm and the hubby was an usher/greeter.  We had a packed house at each performance on Sunday and The Jersey Journal wrote a column on our Easter play as they came to our 2 pm show.  After each show on Sunday we had an Easter egg hunt for the children ten and under and here is a picture of Brandon participating in the egg hunt.

After church we went to Rio Rodizio Brazilian Steakhouse for dinner with our Pastors and we stuffed ourselves as we enjoyed good conversations and laughter. After dinner we came home and prepared ourselves for bed and crashed. Here is a cute picture of Brandon playing with his Easter basket before calling it a night.

How did you enjoy your weekend?


  1. My Easter was really nice and relaxing. Your baby is adorable. Thanks for commenting on my blog. :)

  2. Sounds like you all had an eventful, but fun weekend! Glad to hear that you all had a packed house at church for Easter. It's always great when people come out to hear the word or just be in the house of God. Thanks for stopping by and following YUMMommy!
