Happy Easter!

Easter was lovely today, spent with my parents, my sister and my niece.  We even had a few unexpected visitors at my parents' place in the afternoon.  After a windy, chilly morning, the weather changed and the afternoon was sunny, warm and beautiful! 

My son and my niece enjoyed their Easter Basket of non-candy/chocolate goodies, particularly the springy suction cup eggs:

Stickers, Bubbles, Sunglasses and Springy Eggs

As you can see, my son particularly enjoyed his sunglasses.

Later, the two little ones enjoyed my niece's brand new swing set
Those papers you see are the instructions; the set is NEW  
We also enjoyed a wonderful gluten free dinner:
-onion soup
-baked ham and lamb chops
-spinach salad
-mashed potatoes
-Brussels sprouts

Followed by rice paper fruit rolls in a homemade sauce and a gluten and dairy free walnut cake I made with the help of my two year old.  I'll be posting a review of the cookbook I got the recipe from on Tuesday.
Gluten and Dairy Free Walnut Cake

We even managed to sneak in a little quiet time in the backyard after we came home this afternoon. 

I have a lot to be thankful for this Easter Sunday.
