We went to my parent's house for Easter weekend. We hadn't been there in quite some time, so it was nice to catch up and relax. I always feel so relaxed at their house. It was also pretty awesome that they decided to cook 10 pounds of crab legs that Saturday night. My favorite. Needless to say, I spent the remainder of the night in a crab leg coma.
Sunday morning we went to the Easter service at the church I grew up in. My grandmother (Mama Jean) grew up there and my mom, so it's a pretty special place. It was a beautiful service and a perfect way to start Easter day.
After church we headed back to my parent's house to change and get the "goods" for our family picnic.
However, we had to stop long enough for a mini photo shoot. I mean, a girl's got to get her photos.
Each Easter, after church, we go to Mammie's (my dad's mom) for a picnic. My other grandmother, Mama Jean, also comes. It's pretty neat to have two grandmothers who do so much together.

My mom does a pretty good job entertaining them. Here she is playing "Ring Around the Rosie". This was pre-fall-down-and-bump-my-head for Morgan Kate.
We also got to admire this brand new beauty. Zoe is my cousin's newest baby girl and she is just a doll. I don't think she cried once while we were there. So sweet!
It was such a nice Easter and such a beautiful day - the perfect opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Easter and to enjoy much needed time with family.
