This is the earliest Easter we will see in our lifetime, and it was so early that it took us by surprise. We forgot to dye eggs, and bake cookies, but we did remember to celebrate the day and remember the true meaning of Easter. After our usual Sunday morning we headed to the market, so I could get ingredients for a layered taco dip and chips.
Then we headed to Mima's house... taco dip in hand. My sister-in-law has a big family/extended family. There is always lots of people, lots of laughter, and lots of fun! The day was beautiful, well over 90F (very hot for mid-March). Hot enough to melt the chocolate eggs in the traditional Easter egg hunt. No one there is every too old to hunt Easter eggs at Mima's. Then we had a great dinner, and even better dessert! My brother brought his water slide and the little kids slid for a while. The bigger kids had more sense... that water was COLD! After the water sliding was over all the kids got into the action bouncing, sliding, and wrestling on the dry slide. They all had a blast!
