Easter Weekend, SO FUN!
We had a really great Easter weekend. Quin and I made onion skin dyed eggs, as you can see in the post below. We were visited by friends who are as close as family for dinner on Saturday night, and we have had Andre's parents here with us since the 3rd. Andre made a great dinner of tenderloin from a local butcher, Valbella Meats, with all the fixings on Saturday night. I am a vegie, so none for me, but I was happy to see everyone enjoying their Alberta beef. My hubby is great in the kitchen!
The "Easter Bunny" brought Quin this cute little wooden doll family, in a plush Easter Basket my mom gave her last year.
I also found this beautifully wrapped Italian chocolate egg at Mountain Mercado Cafe in Canmore. This is the first year that Q has really "gotten" the whole holiday thing, which makes it a lot of fun. Although, we don't like to go overboard, and this day was full of overboard when it came to chocolate. The two photos below are worth a thousand words, when it comes to how good chocolate covered cream puffs are...
We did find a way to fit a lot of fun Easter crafts in along with the chocolate... And to have a lovely day surrounded by friends and family in our wonderful community of Banff. Since my eyelids are closing I will resort to captions for the rest of this post...
