The in-laws have come to town

So far we’ve had beautiful weather for Easter weekend! I truly hope that spring is here to stay, because it’s lovely to be able to wear flip-flops and shorts finally. I shaved my legs this morning in anticipation of skirt-wearing!

My husband’s parents drove down from New Brunswick and arrived Tuesday night. The next two days Jordan and I both had to work, so I’m not sure what they did to occupy themselves. After work on Thursday, I came home and made venison enchiladas, which turned out great. We sat around and chatted for the rest of the evening, after clean-up.

Friday morning everyone got up late. I made ham and potato soup for lunch, and then we got the bicycles ready and drove down to a park where there are trails. We spent almost two hours out riding and enjoying the sunshine. When we came back to the house, his mom wanted to weed the garden (no complaints there!) and I baked banana bread. For dinner Jordan barbecued chicken and sausages while I made egg-fried rice; we had a yummy dinner. After eating, his mother and I sat down to watch a movie while Jordan, his dad, and his brother worked on putting in a shelf and bar in the upstairs closet. Early to bed.


Muffin goes for a bike ride!


Saturday morning I was up early. I already had plans to go to Belleville with Pam and Laura to purchase bridesmaid shoes. The drive there was uneventful; traffic not very heavy. We were in the bridal store for maybe 15 minutes trying on and purchasing shoes. They’re going to be dyed to match our dresses. After that we picked up items for Amy’s bachelorette party at a naughty store. 😉 A quick stop at Tim Horton’s for a snack, and we were on our way home. I got in around 3:30 pm, so it was quite a long day.

Now his parents have gone down to the waterfront for a walk and Jordan’s out dirt biking with some friends. I’ve made a cheesecake and pound cake, desserts for tomorrow’s Easter dinner. We’ll have about 12 people piled into the house. Should be interesting!
