Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday.  Ours was a very nice and relaxed and quiet day.

I ended up burning quite a few more calories last night.  After drinking some yummy yummy mojitos, we turned on Just Dance 2 on the Wii, and me and some of our friends and neighbors got down with our bad selves. =)

The morning started out nice and quiet.  Of course the little one was up nice and early to see what the Easter Bunny had brought her.  She ran upstairs to wake up her sister, and then hit the yard to find all her hidden goodies.  She dressed extra special for church, and didn't even argue with me when I told her she couldn't have chocolate until she ate something decent. 

On this day, when we remember the sacrifices made for us, I could feel nothing but grateful.  Grateful for my family-my husband, my girls, and my sister's family.  Grateful for our friends, and grateful for the life we have.  Grateful that He gives me the courage and strength to continue on this journey.

However, being grateful didn't mean I wasn't tired.  ;)  My husband and I sat outside most of the day while the kiddo played in her new pool.  The weather was nice, and the breeze was strong; it was hard not to fall asleep and getting motivated for a jog was even harder.  Instead, I waited for nightfall, and my neighbor went for an evening walk.  I didn't even have to bully her into it.  =D

And what a walk it was!  We ended up walking a 5K in an hour!  I know this because I finally figured out how to properly use my brother-in-law's Garmin Forerunner.  It's really cool.  When we turned back onto our street, we were at 56 minutes and just under 3 miles, so we kept walking up and down the street until we hit an hour.  What a great time!  Great company, great conversation, and 372 calories! 

And, we saw a bunny!  On Easter!  It was our very own Easter Bunny!  Just another thing to be grateful for.
