Easter Weekend

The weekend started off with Tyler's baseball game Saturday morning - bright and early! After that we headed to the Placerville Fairgrounds for their community "Eggstravaganza"! They had several egg hunts for kids, food, bounce houses, live music, games, crafts, face painting... and it was all FREE! 

 The nice thing about this event was it wasn't overly crowed. I've been to the community egg hunts in Folsom and Cameron Park and there are WAY too many people at those events. I really enjoyed the short lines and mild crowd sizes. 
 Making some crafts! 

 Check out the air he's getting! 
 Tug-of-war! This game was SO funny! They had all the children against 3 grown men. The kids had the men dragging on the ground in defeat. I wish I had it on tape! 

 Tyler helped me make the cupcakes for my sunbeams. 
 I got totally lazy with these ones... I had planned on making them into baskets :-/ 
 Coloring eggs! 

 We finished our Easter Eve with some home movies. Look how cute my brother Brian is on the TV! I believe he was about 5 at the time. 
 And what would Easter be without Trifle! 
 Tyler's goodies from the Easter bunny! 

 His new educational books ;)

Grandma's Rhubarb Pie

I have really come to love rhubarb. It's a delicious vegetable that you can find in stores in the early spring. I recently found out that my grandmother had a great rhubarb pie recipe that my father grew up enjoying. We discovered that my aunt who lives in New York had the recipe card in her possession, after a few emails my father was able to get this picture of the original recipe card in my grandmothers handwriting. With this picture I can now bake this delectable dessert for years to come. Last night was my first attempt - it was perfect with a side of vanilla ice cream. 

I think its funny how the rhubarb kinda resembles pieces of meat in the pie; almost like diced up hot dog! But I can assure you that the pie was sweet and divine and tasted nothing like meat ;)

2011 Opening Day - GO YANKEES!!!

Yesterday was our baseball leagues opening day - it's our kick off party for the season! They had bounce houses, rock climbing wall, FOOD, music, a parade, and a raffle. I of course forgot my camera so please excuse the horrible picture quality from my camera phone. 

The team and coaches! 
 Climb baby climb! 

 We were lucky enough to win TWO of the raffle baskets! Both were "Family movie night" baskets. So fun! 
 After opening day we went to my sisters house to get our baby fix. Here is Deke meeting his new niece for the first time ♥
