Easter Recap

I had to do this Easter recap before I forgot everything.  I can't remember a thing any more.  Brain overload.  Okay here it goes....

Wednesday - I finally arrived at my parent's after a work meeting that afternoon.  Mom had made crab cakes.  Nothing better than Mama's cookin!

Thursday - I had to go to Baltimore for another work meeting so a stop at Fisherman's Inn on Kent Island was essential. 

That evening while Dad was at Rotary, Mom and I went to Goin Nuts with a couple her friends (The Champagne Ladies). We shared lots of wedding ideas and they gave us lots of opinions which was fabulous! Fun fun!

Friday - Mom and I shopped til we dropped.  That night the three of us went to dinner at a casual place which was nice.

Saturday - Dad's birthday!  We started the day off with a 10 mile run and Dad biked it with me.  We hit all the good spots - went downtown, through the zoo, by the schools, through the University then back through some neighborhoods and home.  I loved how flat it was!

That afternoon, we headed down to the beach and went to South Moon Under as you saw yesterday.  Then we went to Fishtails for a pre-dinner cocktail.  It was the perfect spot.  Lots of people and of course right on the water, bayside.  We will be going back. 

Check out the bar area.  This is where we sat.  We picked Kevin up a shirt from here just to let him know he missed out! ;)  (He stayed home with his family, which is how it should be, we think so at least!)

Next on tap for his birthday was a nice dinner at Fager's.  We got there in time to watch the sunset to which they play the 1812 Overture until the sun goes completely down.  Everyone claps at the end.  Very cool. 

Mom and Dad had the prime rib which was fantastic, I had the tuna.  They brought a piece of carrot cake out for his big day!  He might have had one bite of it.  Mom and I on the other hand....!

Sunday - Easter.  The Easter bunny evidently still comes even in your late 20's!  I guess til we're married?  Isn't this bunny adorable?  Too fragile to bring back so I'll get him for next year!

A few new ornaments for my Easter tree which is always fun!  And you can't have Easter without Robin Eggs.  My fav!  Easter bunny even brought Kevin a basket - complete in an Allstate bag haha!  He was excited. 

Family Easter dinner was at 4:30 and boy was it great.  My Mom's cousin's home is right on the water as you can see. 


One side of the family!

 They always have an Easter egg hunt.  Different age groups now to be fair!  Us big kids even had one...each egg had mulah in it!

So gorgeous.  There were even some boats out.

The table was perfectly set.  Crab cakes were on the menu.  I didn't miss a day of having crab the whole time I was home.  Essential for being in Maryland.

My parents and I on our way out.

I flew back to Charlotte yesterday.  While it is nice to be back to a routine, I always miss being home longer.  I hope to get back sometime this summer, with Kevin making the trip then too which will be fun!

Thanks for everything Mom and Dad!!!

(PS - sorry if there are any grammatical mistakes in this, no time, but wanted to get it done).


  1. That home on the water is lovely. I saw it on Twitter and wondered whose house it was.
    My Aunts and Uncles did egg hunts for us in high school and each egg had money.
    They golden egg had a $100!
