For Easter this year we got to go back to Ottawa. Because of the freezing rain Thursday night, our friend drove us in on Friday morning. We arrived too late to go to the Good Friday service, so we went to a GoodLife near my parents’ to deadlift. (Yeah, not going back to that club, it’s overrun with bros who wear cutoff Popeye’s shirts and improper form.)
We had a relaxing day with my parents talking, colouring, crosswording, reading, and “watching” March Madness (I went on Pinterest and probably read more).
Saturday morningwe got to go see Kelsey (and her dogs!) then went to get coffee.
Where would we go for coffee except Suzy Q’s for doughnuts! I had the carrot cake doughnut, the one in the middle. It was phenomenal.
It was so great to catch up with Kelsey and show her both our wedding album (she was my maid of honour, and we haven’t seen her since I made the album) and the 2015 album.
Saturday afternoon Dad went for a bike ride, so Mom, Nic and I went to the Greenbelt for a nice walk. The sun was so bright, so the snow was slowly melting.
A bag of seeds had obviously exploded, and this chipmunk was LOVING it.
We drove to Nic’s parents for dinner, and then went to Hogsback Falls with them for a nice walk. The sunset was beautiful.
Nic wore an adorable bowtie for Easter Sunday.
This is Flopsy. One of the youth brought his adorable bunny to church, and Mom and I were so happy to hold a bunny again.
Gypsy hated being held like that, but that’s the only way Flopsy likes it!
Happy Easter from us! We had Easter lunch at Nic’s parents’, and my parents came over. It’s so convenient having our parents live in the same city, and be friends! #InLawGoals
Sunday after my parents left, we went for a walk along the Ottawa river with Nic’s parents. It was a BEAUTIFUL day. SO bright.
What a wonderful walk and a wonderful weekend!
