My little family packed up the car and headed to my parent's house at the coast for Easter Weekend. Friday night after we arrived mom and I chatted and knit for a few hours while Joey slept in his very own little fort and Matthew dove into a book that Amanda lent him.
Saturday dad was up early to cook us breakfast. Mom and I were well fortified for our short shopping excursion to the outlet mall in Lincoln city. We were back in time for lunch at Kum Yon's.
While we were gone Joseph put together an entire Indiana Jones Lego set. He's something else with those sets, he can sit for hours pouring over the little books to get them JUST RIGHT. As far as I can tell it was a perfect reproduction of one of the movie sets.
In the afternoon Mom and I took Joseph to purchase a new toy. He wanted Bakugan Brawlers. I do not really "get" these toys, but he sure played with them for the rest of the weekend.
Dad made an incredible souffle for dinner. It was cheesy and had crab and was wonderful. I added some stir-fried kale and Mom made biscuits and a salad. Clearly this was an exceptional Easter feast.
The rest of the evening was quiet and spent in front of the TV watching sports and knitting. Well, except for Matthew, he was so sucked into that book he read the whole thing.
Sunday we drove back to Hillsboro, stopping only to eat at Andaman Thai in Lincoln city. I can't say enough about that little restaurant. It has the BEST Thai food I've had in Oregon, and I've had A LOT of Thai food here.
Amanda came right over when we got home and we played Rock Band until it was time to acknowledge that it really was a work night and we needed to cut it out and turn in. Joseph is getting a lot better a drumming! I was really proud of his efforts last night.
All in all it was a fabulous weekend. I even managed to get a little laundry done!
Now, to tackle the work week with the same energy...
