Kemble introduced us to a new favorite appetizer, grilled artichokes. YUM!
It looks gross, but I promise it is delish.
On Saturday, we got to go on our first walk since my ski debacle. My PT doc gave me the go-ahead for walking at my appointment on Thursday. I think 3 miles was a little over eager, but I finished! I kinda felt like a contestant on Extreme Makeover Weightloss Edition for the last 1/4 mile. I made it to the car though! Small victories. :)
Before and after our walk, Matt had a tennis match- here's some shots from the second one. ...I'll pretend like I look like this when I play. I should get Matt to take pictures of my next match- the comparison would make for a good laugh I'm sure!
After tennis, we got Noah and Maddox's Easter baskets ready for Sunday!
On Easter morning, poor Jackson woke up sick, so Karen and Jay weren't able to go to church and brunch with us. But we got to go over to their house and visit with the 'lil guy before brunch! Even though he wasn't feeling great, we still got a few smiles out of him. :)
Standing like a big boy!
Brunch at Ansley with Matt's parents
Later that day, my family came over for Easter dinner. We got to give the boys their Easter baskets and do an egg hunt in the backyard!
Trying to open the silly string :)
Maddox Ark Ark wishing Nonna Happy Easter. :)

The big boys hiding the eggs for the little boys
As Noah ran to get this egg, he didn't realize that almost all of his eggs fell out of his basket...
...but Maddox did! HA! Look at that face- Jackpot!
Too cute! Noah didn't get upset- he just laughed and tried to scoop them all up before Maddox! Love them.
Mom put together two photo albums with pictures of my Aunt Barb and Uncle Jay and gave them to my sister and me. We got really choked up looking through the pictures- I'll have to share a post about them one day. They were like second parents to us. They've been gone three years now... so thankful for pictures and memories.
Love this boy! He wanted Ark Ark to have his own seat at the table, but we needed them for actual people ;) ...this was his next suggestion before we compromised on the breakfast bar (with Ark Ark facing Maddox of course). He loves his Ark Ark!
My mom made this AWEsome cake! She is so great! The boys loved it! (And so did we!)
Hope you all had a Happy Easter!
