Easter Weekend

(These were created with the help of super glue and rubber bands. And now I can have egg salad sandwiches every day for a week! Hooray!)

Easter was a really mellow day for Ben & I. We would have spent it with family, as we usually do, but Saturday was so chock full of things to do, that leaving town for the weekend was just not an option.

This is how Saturday went down:

8:30 am-- We met Susan and her awesome fiance Andrew at Magelby's Fresh for some killer french toast. It was so great to see Susan and meet Andrew as a pre-wedding event. We're going down to Houston at the end of the month for their wedding, so it was nice to actually be able to sit and talk with them and catch up before the wedding craziness insues.

10:30 am-- Ben had callbacks for Julius Caesar. He decided he wanted to be in the Castle show this summer, so we spent a couple of hours hanging with a lot of great theatre people in the Pardoe lobby while callbacks went on.

1:00 pm-- Lunch with the Goertzens at Carrabas. Turns out, they're staying in town for the summer! Hooray! So we celebrated the end of callbacks in real style with DELICIOUS steak. I love steak, and this is probably the best one I've ever had. MMMM. Marsala sauce.

3:00 pm-- grocery shopping, followed by cupcake baking/cleaning up in preparation for. . .

7:00 pm-- Julianna's birthday party! OK, truth is, she didn't show up for a while. We had to entertain ourselves by decorating eggs while we waited for her to show up. BUT, in the end, we had some cupcakes, played some Nintendo, and gabbed late into the night.

Happy Birthday Jules!! (pictured here with Griff)

Madison took many more, and many better pictures than I did. I'll have to see if I can get my hands on a few. . .
