Hippy Hoppy Easter 2014

This post is fashionably late, but in my defense I had a few posts scheduled ahead of this one so it had to find its place in the queue.

For Easter we had family over, and we did an egg hunt and dyed easter eggs. It was definitely a lot of fun! My parents make the day about our family and not about the religious aspects since my brother and I are both atheists. Sometimes people forget there are other people out there that don’t celebrate Easter at all! I kinda just tune out the religious banter on social media.

I do find Zombie Jesus kind of hilarious though, gotta admit.

When family arrived, we dicked around on the Hobbit game for a bit before heading outside to hunt eggs WOO WOO! [We had to stay in while my Dad aka the Easter Bunny hid them.]

Eggs I found

I was only limited to 3 eggs, and my nephew ended up stealing the blue egg from me when I wasn’t paying attention. [It had a few coins in it. GRRRR! Little butt.] While we were outside, we noticed the koi fish in the pond out front were slowly moving out of hibernation.

Koi fish!

It is still too cold to feed them, so they feast off the algae for the time being. [The ground temperature has to be above 50F before resuming feedings from winter.]  There are actually six koi in there, but our baby koi that was born last year is hard to pick up as they are black and orange which ends up camouflaging very well.

We had a delicious turkey dinner with all the fixin’s made by my mom. Did you know that jellied cranberry sauce comes in a BOX?! I shit you not, Dole makes their jellied cranberry sauce in a box. We usually get the Ocean Spray kind in a can, but this was 100x better because it didn’t have that tin can taste. I was just like, “IT’S IN A BOX. THAT IS SO COOL.” I wish I had gotten a picture. ;____;

After dinner, it was time to dye eggs!

The dye is all prepared and ready for the eggs!
First egg going in!

I’m a terrible artist, but it is a kitty face. [Naturally!]
After egg dying we went out to show family the RV and since my Sis in law had to go work soon, we had to cut the tour pretty short so we could go inside and have dessert.

Doughnuts that have PEEPS!!! on them. I didn’t get to eat one, my Nephew beat me to it.

Overall a very fun day was had by all as I mentioned before. Can’t wait until next year~!!
