Easter is Sunday!
Easter is kind of a weird holiday for me because I don’t really remember Easter holiday traditions growing up. I remember hiding eggs, destroying hard-boiled eggs by throwing them at trees, and hanging out at a park along the river in Centralia, Washington. I don’t remember if this is something we did every Easter or just one particularly memorable one.
As Easter creeps up, I usually call my mom for Easter advice. What did we do for Easter as kids? What should I make for dinner? She tells me that we would buy Easter dresses and go to church, both things I know I will not be doing. Just like all of the other holidays, we have worked on making new traditions with our family. Easter is still a bit of a mystery to me. Some things are a given. We will have Easter baskets delivered to the front door by the Easter bunny. We will have an egg hunt in the backyard with plastic eggs filled with money (fill them with candy and the ants get in there quick) and maybe some time by the pool. We will have some sort of special brunch/dinner to celebrate time together as a family. I still haven’t solidified the menu, (most likely something like this or this), but I do know that paleo carrot cake will be on the table.
