Easter weekend was stressful for us for obvious reasons, but we tried to make the best out of it and spend as much time with family as we could. We had lunch with my family on Saturday and enjoyed seeing everyone. It's always so nice to go back home, even for a little bit. I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but my parent's built our house soon after they were married and they have lived there since. They lived with my mom's parents for the first 6 months of their marriage while they built our house, paycheck by paycheck. Since then they have added on twice lol. So that is literally the house I grew up in. It holds so many special memories and I just love it. 

Of course we took pictures, maybe one day I will remember to bring my camera and not rely on my phone to make pictures :)

Please look at this picture. My sister photobombed at the perfect time lol.

Late Saturday afternoon we went to Matthew's parents house and had dinner and then went on a long walk in their neighborhood. The weather was perfect! We loaded Murphy up in the stoller and we were off for our walk. Matthew's parents neighborhood is so nice and quiet, it definitely makes for a great place to go on a walk. After our walk we sat around and talked for a little bit before we headed off to bed pretty early. We were still exhausted from not having much sleep the night before.

Sunday we woke up and went to church with Matthew's parents and then came back home and enjoyed a delicious Easter lunch his mom made. We visited for a little bit longer and, then made the drive to my mema's house. Since we had already eaten lunch we just visited and I snacked on some Easter candy :)

Matthew changed out of his dress pants and into jeans right after church and we didn't get a picture until we were at my mema's house, but here is our Easter picture! You can't really tell in his picture but his shirt was white with blue and pink stripes. It was such a gloomy day and it was actually drizzling rain when we had this picture made, so taking pictures just wasn't in our favor on Easter. Matthew wasn't too upset about it though ;)
