My weekend in pictures

Caelyn being silly
Bryn - She's like this all the time.
Easter Egg Hunt at church - the weather was SO beautiful!
We had to leave church and head to Caelyn's soccer game.  They tied 0-0 in a very tough game!
Sunday morning.  The weather was very different.  Bryn hunting eggs at our house.

Caelyn finds an egg.

I felt really beautiful in my Easter dress until I saw this picture.  I think I look terrible.  I am thinking it is because my daughter took the photo and she is shorter than me so it is a bad angle. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

Easter dinner @ my mom's
Caelyn hunting Easter eggs at my moms.  It was wet and cold. 
Matthew and I snuck off after dinner and spent the night at the Oregon coast.  Here's a picture in our room.  We had a lovely view of the river and old town Florence.

Here I am. 
Matthew being silly on the jetty.  We saw sea lions playing in the river channel.

Here we are taking a self-portrait in front of the Pacific Ocean.  It was very windy.

We got back into town in time to pick Bryn up from dance and then drop Caelyn off at dance and then pick her up and take her to soccer practice.  Mondays are our busiest afternoon.  We don't get home until almost 7:00 PM.  Anyway I snapped this photo of a beautiful rainbow above the soccer field.  I usually walk the track during practice.

All in all it was a very nice long weekend.  I did have a little trouble with the Easter candy on Saturday when I was stuffing Easter eggs and again yesterday evening.  I'm not really sure what to say about that.  Overall my food was very good even though we ate in restaurants and had a big family meal at my mom's.  I also got a LOT of extra exercise walking on the beach and walking around antique stores and doing stuff in the hotel room ;)  I guess I'll have to wait and see what the scale has to say about it tomorrow.  I don't normally eat food I don't plan to it so spontaneously shoving candy in my mouth is a bit unsettling, but it is what it is.

I hope you all had a great weekend too!
