This was the first year in as long as I can remember that neither of my parents were in town for Easter. We are so routine in all the things we do for special occasions, so this definitely threw myself and my kids for a loop this year. I knew if we had Easter like we always do it would be very weird without my parents so I surprised my kids, our dog and my borrowed middle child (aka our neighbour) with Easter hotdogs and a campfire on the Fraser River... sunshine, campfire, skipping rocks, some lifestyle family pictures and no stress, it was an amazing evening. After dinner an old friend from highschool joined us and he taught Adison how to shoot a slingshot. To say she was thrilled is an understatement. Happy Easter.
