Our Easter 2016

I hope you've all had a wonderful Easter weekend! 
We've had 4 days filled with family, relaxing and lots and lots of food and chocolate. 

Good Friday was spent pottering around the house, driving teenagers out to the Easter Show and having fish and chips for dinner. I even pulled out my bunny slippers that night to get into the Easter vibe, although this was the first Easter we've had in a while that was still quite warm and humid.

On Saturday morning we tried to squeeze in some fruits for breakfast with our Acai bowls to ensure we were eating something other than hot cross buns and chocolate ;) 
Simon and I went to the movies in the afternoon to see My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. 
It was fun with a few laughs but definitely not as good as the first one.

On Sunday we found that the Easter Bunny had paid us a visit and the boys enjoyed finding all of the eggs that had been left for them. It was very sweet to see them walking hand in hand and sharing out the eggs. Finn stayed in bed but Noah and Jasper made up a bag of eggs for him so he didn't miss out.

We then met up with family for breakfast at my brother + sister in laws house around the corner from us. They put on a delicious spread of avocado, feta + proscuitto toasts and an amazing stack of crepes with a choc orange sauce. The cousins roamed around the garden together and burnt off some sugar on the trampoline. We recreated a photo of them all together that was taken at Easter 3 years ago.
Amazing how they grow so fast!

We then met up with more family later on at the Skiff Club and pleasantly whiled away a few hours chatting and catching up on all the news. Even more Easter Eggs were given to the kids. The amount of chocolate in the house is out of control! Time to hide some in the cupboards for a few weeks ;)

How good is that 4th day of the long weekend?! 
It really felt relaxing to have that extra day to chill out and do nothing. 
We all had a sleep in and a slow start to the day. Later on I made some bunny shaped pizzas to keep the Easter Celebrations going.

We've all had a really great Easter break. How was your weekend?
Did you over do the chocolate too?!

You can see how we spent our last couple of Easters here and here
