Easter Weekend 2013


We had just the best Easter weekend here, and it was met by the nicest spring weather, too. I think we’re on the verge of tucking away the hats and gloves, and running in shorts instead -weather (great, now that I’ve said that, it’ll snow another foot soon).

On Friday, we hung out with our godson (+ our best friends)…

Then my bro and his gf came to visit. They swung by before going to an opera on Saturday night…

On Sunday, we went for a family run (Cabo was there, too!). There’s nothing cooler than sharing a run with the people I love. We all wore shorts and tshirts because it was WARM.
It felt so great. My brother kept me company for the extra miles I tacked on to finish my last long run before Boston (13 miles) and it felt tough but good. He’s a speedster/Ironman/Leadville 100’er, so anytime I run (and of course we jabber away) with him, it feels like a huge accomplishment for me.

Oh, and the 4 of us engaged in a very competitive Easter Egg Hunt.

For the record, my family must be some sort of expert egg-finders, because I got my butt kicked. All three of them found their candy-filled eggs before I did.

While my bro and his gf were hiding our eggs to find (we hid theirs then watched them hunt, then vise versa), Weez, Cabo, and I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and took a few family photos.

All in all, it was the perfect weekend filled with family and running (my two favorites). To those celebrating, I hope you all had wonderful weekends as well!

What’s your favorite type of candy to find in your Easter basket? Fruity or chocolate-y? Anyone here like those Peep things (def not me)?

PS. Two weeks from today is BOSTON! AH!!
