A wedding, our Easter and the White House Easter egg roll

The last 4-5 days have been a whirlwind, we’ve traveled from Virginia to upstate NY for my dear cousin’s wedding and to visit my Mom. Keeping two very active boys strapped in a car for upwards of 8 hours was an interesting challenge. Let’s just say I’m only planning on one more trip this year, Ha! 
First, my cousin’s wedding was a true highlight of the trip, I have 23 cousins I hardly ever get to see, but when I do its like no time has passed they are beautiful inside and out. Then my Mom’s victorian home in the quaint lake side town of Oswego always feels like a safe haven! My husband can’t get in enough time with my second Dad and my Mom was both gracious and generous treating us to meals and helping me juggle my boys! We love you guys!
Lastly, the White House Easter Egg Roll….this was one of those occasions which held so much hope and promise to be spectacular yet it sadly disappointed. In one word, the main problem was the crowds. It was shoulder to shoulder the entire time. We scored our tickets through my husband’s squadron and each session was allotted a 2 hour time slot, our first 45 minutes was spent in line waiting to get in. Each activity on the South Lawn of the White House also held a dreadfully long line, essentially we picked the thing with the shortest line, egg dying. Then took a few picture with random characters and called it a day! Oh well! It was definitely neat being so up close to the White House and running into people from my husband’s squadron. Hoping your Easter was blessed!
