Celebrating Easter with Grandma Dorothy

What a fantastic Easter weekend! Ryan and I are so blessed to have such loving family.

This Easter was beautiful... the sun was shining and it was a pretty steady 65 degree day, we were able to enjoy springtime weather all weekend. When we arrived in Sioux Falls Friday evening we celebrated Ryan's Mom(Denise)'s birthday with cheeseburgers hot off the grill and a visit from the Blue family. Saturday morning we were off to get a round of golf in for the first time this year. It was a little rough, but everybody had some great holes! Saturday evening brought us to Westward Ho Country Club to celebrate Ryan's Dad (Dave)'s 50th birthday. Needless to say, we were the loudest table there, sharing stories and making jokes. Sounds like an Austad dinner to me! Easter service Sunday morning was fantastic and since everybody was wearing pretty pastels, it really felt like Easter from when I was a kid. I can still remember wearing an Easter hat to church a few years in a row. Thanks Mom! And what would Easter be without eggs and jelly beans? We had plenty of those...see pictures below. Overall, it was a really fantastic weekend, and we felt so blessed to enjoy family.
