Celebrating Easter with the Swedins was very full weekend of a lot of fun and surprises.
Apparently, Suzy hasn't had a year off from dying eggs since the kids were born. So, we can't stop the tradition now... Yep, we all dyed eggs at Jon's place last Saturday. We had some colors, some waxy crayon-things, and some eggs. I didn't even know what I was doing, since it had been so long since I'd done such activity :) but I managed to keep up with the best of 'em.
Maggie and Cooper slept away most of their days, if they weren't out in the park chasing a ball... Cooper never got close (he still only has three working legs. the fourth is still recuperating) but Kev and Tim made sure Maggie ran miles and miles chasing and searching for her orange Chuck It! ball.
We ate very well, and probably too often over the weekend. For as little activity and as much lounging as we did, we had giant meals of BBQ Chicken, Pizza at Woody's in Golden, big Breakfasts of eggs, sausage, cinnamon rolls... and PRIME RIB> YUM!
However inactive we all were, we took a stroll around Chatfield's dog training area and played LOTS of games. They were so nice to play RISK with me :)!!! (If you remember, the boys promised me we'd play Risk on our last camping trip with Vince & Joia, and then they broke my heart when we didn't) And we played a lot of One Up! (fun word game with scrabble-like letter tiles). Mike smoked us, and then we found out he and Suzy had been cheating because they "mis-understood the rules" :) haha. We all liked the game a lot, and shared many laughs over the words Kevin and Tim would sometimes shout.
We got to hear all about the goings-on with Kevin and his life right now. Wrapping up the semester at Bethel, Selling his truck, Art projects, Graphic Design projects,
We LOVED the weekend, and enjoyed all the moments of piling into the Sienna all together!
