This Easter was a crazy one for my family. My Grandma put her house on the market and in 12 hours she had 3 offers and a bidding war…suddenly we had just a couple of days to put on a massive garage sale – which just had to fall on Easter weekend. In addition of the garage sale, Alex was home for Spring break but was flying back to Idaho on Sunday morning. So we made the decision to hold a garage sale and Easter on Saturday. It was a busy day.
We had our family over for Easter dinner on Saturday night and then dying Easter eggs. Everyone spent the night and Sunday morning we woke up to see if the Easter Bunny had visited, had a big breakfast and then send Alex off to the airport. Needless to say it was a world wind weekend. Lots of fun, great memories, laughs and a whole lot of photos were taken!
I have been horrible about getting non-steps to a million or #catchthemoment365 posts up and have made it a goal to post a non-related post once a week. I have a bunch of photos that I’m in the process of editing that I want to get up on my blog, but life just gets in the way….not to mention exhaustion! With that being said, here’s that first post
And then no Benson holiday would be complete with out a throw-down. This time it was Kelly –vs.- Maddie in a jump roping contest.
The game might have been slightly rigged, but in the end Maddie was the big winner and Kelly the loser. We’ll just say Kelly was a bit skeptical by the results
Alex and Mason with their final vote for the winner….
My dad and Aunt Sue were in charge of the voting…at this point Kelly was up 2-1 votes, but Maddie was about to make her big comeback.
Our official jump-rope official, Emmalee, congratulating the winner. Notice Kelly in the back with the smirk on her face, she was a good sport and new she had no chance to beat Maddie!
Hope you all had a Hoppy Easter!
