Our Easter day was amazing! We attended the sunrise Mass and it was beautiful. The sun was shining and the birds were chirping away as we walked into church.

After Mass, we came home and had a lovely breakfast of egg bake, fruit salad and resurrection rolls. Then we changed out of our Sunday best and headed out for an egg hunt in the lovely Spring-like (finally!) weather.
|Esther enjoyed the egg hunt so much that the only way to get her to voluntarily come back inside was to leave a trail of eggs to the door!|
We had a lovely young neighbor couple and their son over for dinner. After eating, we had this yummy lamb cake and ice cream for dessert. This is the first year that I made a lamb cake and it was a hit! It will definitely become a part of our Easter dinner tradition!
|It actually turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself!|
