Easter in Pink and Green

April 13, 2009

We just got back from Cape Cod around 2am this morning. Needless to say, we are all exhausted......it was a quick trip up and back, but so worth it! We have so much fun visiting the "Gaelic" side of the family......but it always goes so fast...we hate to have to say goodbye.....but before we know it, it will summer and we will be heading back up to hit the beaches!!

The weather was pretty cold and rainy but thankfully we did have some sunshine on Easter Sunday so that the kids could enjoy their annual Easter Egg hunt in my Sister In Law's backyard!! There was even a special appearance made by the Easter Bunny......wait until you see how that went over......I bet you all can guess how Sarah reacted.

I am running really short on time and just wanted to get some of these up before I leave town again tomorrow. For the most part, I did not take my camera out of the bag all weekend, but did manage to snap a few during the egg hunt. Nick was running from the camera in normal fashion and Sarah was already pretty tired and cranky so she was in no mood to cooperate....they are not the best. I had high hopes of passing the camera to someone else so that I could have just one picture of Pat and I with the kids...... but that never happened....oh well there is always next year!! You will also see a theme here....everyone chose to wear pinks and greens....it was almost comical. We really should have tried to get a group shot with everybody. You would have thought we all planned it!!

Still worried that the Easter Bunny was going to come near her.

The only picture I have of my two together on Easter....from the back of course. Nick didn't participate in the Easter Egg hunt, but was willing to try to help his sister search for Eggs that were out of her reach.

Sarah sitting in front of her Daddy looking through the sliders in the familyroom to make sure that the bunny had really left the yard......She did not like him and was not going to relax until she knew he was gone for good..........look at that face!!

I hope to catch up with you all over the next couple of days.....I haven't looked at a single blog since Friday morning. I am still unpacking, cleaning, and doing laundry, so that I can repack my bag and head to Louisville tomorrow knowing that everything is done and that Pat and the kids will have everything they need in my absense!!

There is one little perk to my business trip.....I get to meet up with a couple of fabulous ladies from our Blogger community....you will have to wait until I return to see who I have the pleasure of meeting this time around!!

Have a great week!!


Marla said...

Sandra said...

It looks like your trip was fantastic.

Gail said...

Beautiful pics Lisa! I also love the one of Nick and Sarah together finding eggs. Travel safely my friend. :)

sweet sweet pictures!

I love her dresses. Last year, we did dresses from Peaches and Cream...with monogram...have you seen their clothes?
I think you would like them.

It looks like you had a great Easter! Sarah looks so adorable in her Easter outfit! I love the unplanned pink and green outfits too!

Hope you have fun on your business trip!

Number 6 and no more counting! said...

looks like a fun weekend. Have a good week and can't wait, can't wait, for the scoop!


Courtney said...

Great pics. i love the one of Sarah and Nick together even if it is of their backs. Sarah is too cute with her fear of the Easter Bunny. My nephew fell in love with the Easter Bunny, but he can't stand Santa!

Missy said...

I love your Easter pics!!! The dress was perfect and looks like lil' bit can wear it several more times. Her little face looking scared is too cute (of course, I don't like that she was scared, but at least she looked precious :)
I love the pic of Nick sweetly helping his Sarah! Awww, what a love.

Have fun on your business trip. I can't wait to hear who all you are meeting. I am sure that they will be beautiful, witty, charming and excited to see you, too! :)

Football and Fried Rice said...

I love the picture you got of Nick 7 Sarah! Even if it from behind! Your nieces are beautiful, I love the pastel colors for Easter, how appropriate!

Kim said...

LOVE the photos..
Looks like a great weekend..
I can't wait to see what lucky ladies you get to meet this time..
Have a safe trip and have fun..
I know you will.

Kam said...

Hi Lisa! Whew...what a whirlwind for you! And off again?! Goodness, girly! You are busy! These pics are great though and sweet Sarah is just as beautiful as ever!...even when she's scared. Hope you have a fantastic trip!


paige said...

blessings to you sweet lisa

carolinagirl said...

Happy Easter! Of course I love all of the pink and green, and my fave photo is of Nick and Sarah! So cute!

Shari said...

Wonderful pictures! Our family all seemed to wear turquise and no one sent me the memo - Amelia and I would have fit in with your family in our pink and green:)

Shari said...

Oh - and as far as the scary bunny goes - we had to leave Perkins without eatting last week because I made the mistake of taking Amelia on familiy night and they had a clown there! She didn't take her eyes off of him until I had her buckled safely in her carseat. She ate her pancakes at home.

Hey now - I love that from the back photo! But then, I bet you guessed that. And poor Sarah! That Easter Bunny is pretty scary looking.

fleur de lis cottage said...

Love all the pink and green (those really are perfect colors for Easter.) Ava has a pink and green birthday coming up on Saturday. A tall, walking and talking bunny is a little freaky when you think about it. All the photos are great. Get some rest for your trip...sounds like a great mix of business and fun.

4D said...

Happy Easter to all of you!

Keep smilin!

Mandi said...

Love the pictures. Poor Sarah and the Easter Bunny. She looks so sad in a few of those pics.

I loved the pink and green theme.

Jo said...

Love the colors of choice! It looks like everyone had a wonderful {most of the time} Easter. How sweet of Nick to help Sarah out in the Egg Hunt.

Safe travels and enjoy meeting up with your blogging buddies!


Aspiemom said...

I love that picture of Nick and Sarah!

When my son was little there was some program called Banana's in Pajama's or something weird like that. They were at a local store and I took him to see them - in his cute little PJ's, of course! He was so excited to see them...until it was his turn to hug them and he realized how huge they were. He was terrified and broke into tears!

Sarah being scared of the Easter Bunny made me think of that.

Keisha said...

The kids are Darling!! Thanks for taking the time & sharing with us.. I know you must be swamped!
Have a Safe trip!!!

Michelle R Photography said...

Oh, you've got a lot of cute material for future "I Heart Faces" Pout themes. LOL

I know you ladies will have a blast meeting each other this week. Take lots of pics!!

Dita said...

That has to be the CREEPIEST looking Easter Bunny I've seen in a long time (since last year, actually at our Easter get together!). I'm with Sarah......YIKES!

What beautiful children there are in your families!

Glad to hear you are planning a Bloggergal Get Together while away...that is exciting!

Hope your trip is not too hectic. Safe travels!

Jennifer said...

Sounds like a wonderful trip! Love the pictures of Sarah...bless her heart :)
When you get a chance, can you tell me what kind of camera you have...I am shopping :) THANKS!


OHmommy said...

I love Sarah's dress.... I saw it on Flickr and fell in love. Lovely trip and of course, as always, lovely pictures. What a beautiful Easter. Happy Easter and spring my friend!

Bridget said...

Looks and sounds like a great Easter. Your entire family is too cute. Love that Nick helped Sarah search for eggs - what a sweet big brother! Well Lucy and Sarah could have beenr in the same, "scared of the Easter Bunny" boat. Poor little things. Oh well at least it didn't stop them from enjoying the day! Hope you had a great start to the week!

- Bridget


Jboo said...

Sounds like a fun Easter!! Those nieces are such cute girls!! Love that everyone wore pink and green! That Nick is such a great brother, isn't he! Maybe next year Sarah will like the Easter bunny -- I sure like the Chocolate bunnies! Have a great trip and week!


day by day said...

I am so glad you had a nice trip and were able to enjoy Easter with your family! My girls would have had the same exact reaction with the Easter Bunny visit. lol!

Casey said...

What great photos!! I'm seriously impressed with the family fashion... I would never have guessed you all didn't plan it!! That's great!

Em reacts the same way to the Easter bunny... She did get close to him this year... but you see the anxiety in her eyes! HAHA!!

Happy Easter!!

Sylvia said...

I love the expressions on Sarah's hesitant face! Hope she ended up relaxing and enjoying all the Easter fun.

Welcome home! We too just got back from a trip. Unlike you, it usually takes me a day to even THINK of unpacking!

Christy said...

Love the pics and the one of the kids together holding hands was perfect and I love it!! Your pics are getting better adn better.

Glad you had a great easter!!!!

Christy :)

Jeni said...

Looks like the perfect weekend. Your nieces are so cute...and I think braces make them even cuter. You did a wonderful job picture taking they are so pretty.

Briana's Mom said...

LOL - Sarah really isn't digging that bunny is she? She is too cute! Glad you all had a wonderful Easter!

jenbusymom said...

Love the pink and green and Sarah's dress. What a lovely family all around. Glad you had a good trip, I think my two would have been terrified of that bunny too!

Have a great trip and fun with new friends!

Lisa said...

Beautiful photo's! It looks like you had a blast!

Sherri said...

It looks like you had a great Easter with your family! I love the smocking in Sarah's dress...I wish Jade would wear dresses:( Right now she is definitely NOT a dress girl.

Have a great trip!

Sharon said...

stunning shots of a stunning family Easter!!

Our Complete Family said...

Aww...look at Miss Sarah in her sweet pink dress! Looks like you guys had great weather for your Easter trip. I'm so glad you had a good time. Maybe next year the bunny will be a hit with Sarah?!?
Your nieces are very pretty girls. I bet they love the photos you took of them because they turned out fantastic!
And you're off on another trip~ be safe, happy traveling~ we'll chat when you get home and settled!

Looks like a GREAT time. I know who you are meeting (I think).


Kristy said...

Hi Lisa, my name is Kristy and I see your comments everywhere and my curiosity got the best of me so I thought I would come and introduce myself and start following along with your life. Your daughter is absolutely gorgeous and such a blessing. I am really looking forward to getting to know you.

Love and blessings, Kristy

Special K said...

A pink and green Easter couldn't sound more perfect to me. ;)

Deb said...

Aww! She was afraid of the Easter Bunny!? Poor lil thing.
Awesome pics, glad you had a good time on your trip.

Jennifer said...

I am so glad ya'll had such a great trip!!! I love the pictures! The ones of your nieces are so beautiful! I love the one of Nick and Sarah too!

Ivy Shaffer said...

Oooh great, a recent post from Cape Cod! Love the photos of your family. The girls are stunning, your Sarah is precious in her new Easter Dress and Nick is handsome as ever. I love when you take pics of him smiling like that!

So glad you had a great time! I couldn't help but smile when I realized Sarah didn't like the big Bunny! Kira doesn't like Bugs or the mention of them and practically crawls up my leg at the sight of one. This just started last week. I can only imagine what she would do if she saw that giant bunny!

Have a safe business trip and fun meeting new friends:))



Across the Ocean Blue said...

My baby girl would not have appreciated the bunny anymore than she did Santa. Your sweet Sarah!

Patricia said...

Beautiful photos, Beautiful family!! LOVE the one of Nick & Sarah looking for eggs!

And, by the way, visit us to get Kiara's take on the Easter Bunny...lol!

Buzzings of a Queen Bee! said...

Fun fun! Unpacking and re-packing. Good times! I hope your next trip goes well and that you can catch your breath soon! :)

Chasing Dreams Photography said...

Lisa the pictures are great as always. Have fun on your trip I can't wait to see the pictures!!!

Heather said...

Okay, I am with Sarah...the bunny creeps me out! Welcome home and glad you got to the cape with minimal event this time:)

Can't wait to see your encounters with bloggy buddies!! So exciting.

Have a great rest of the week.

CC said...

Amazing pics! I'd be scared of the bunny too!

Marla said...

Lisa it was so good to meet you tonight! We had a blast and cant wait to get together again. Adalyn said she had a great time tonight with our friends but she was tired of taking pictures. :o) thanks for taking all of those pictures and I hope you had a great time in KY.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter and a great trip. I love the last picture of both Nick and Sarah!

Hope your travel for work is going well! Enjoy meeting up with your bloggy friends~ how fun!


Kellyann said...

Love the pictures! Looks like you all had a great day.

Rhonda said...


#1--I love your photography and your "subjects are beautiful"

#2--I just discovered your post about your neighbor's house and I'm laughin' my fat butt off! How hysterical! Wonder what's up with that? How much trouble would it be to jerk that crap down??! And did you say lights and tree are still up as well? What the heck? I thought I was bad, but dang. What I'm wondering is if your neighbor accidentally happened upon your blog and saw her house and your comments....???? HAHA! Awkward!

I'm wondering if it's still all there now?

Hope to hear from you,

wife.mom.nurse said...

Great pix. Love the colors. The expression on Sarah's face is priceless!

I read the links to your blog and learned all about your journey in the past 10+ years. You have been through so much. You have an incredible spirit. I am so glad to get to know you through your blog. You are an inspiration.(and a wonderful writer.)

Hope you are having a terrific weekend.


Robin said...

Love the pink and green!!!

I am also swamped with laundry since we got back from the beach.

Can't wait to see who you get to meet!!!


Sharon said...

Oh gosh, that little worried face! What a sweetie!

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...
