The Easter Long Weekend

The Easter long weekend is always one of my very favourite holidays. I think the combination of crisp autumn weather, chocolate eggs and a little extra time off work is just perfect. And it’s even better if you have a bunch of special people to spend it with!

This year our Easter weekend featured some lovely visitors, a little carnival, a petting zoo, watching fireworks from our verandah, a book fair, a trip to the markets, a picnic in the botanical gardens, homemade treats baked by nice people, tree climbing, cartwheels and lots of time with really, really wonderful friends. It was grand!

I hope your weekend was equally as magical. What did you get up to?

    I agree Kate, it is a lovely time of the year! Your Easter looks like it was fun and colourful! We camped, fished, canoed and cooked…of course 🙂

    What a gr’8 weekend you had! A fall fair (fall is my favourite season & since we are in Spring here I love your fall posts), & a book fair… quite jealous over here. 🙂 We did a lot of egg hunting, more Spring clean up in the garden, cooking, eating & hanging out with our kids… it was perfect… just wish it hadn’t gone by so quickly.

      I love bees! I love to watch them swim around together in our pumpkin flowers. That bee was really friendly, It let me touch it and everything! Everybody else was scared though…

      Unfortunately no, I don’t have a pattern! That sweater is hand knit but it was bought second hand from a charity store, so it’s a one off! 🙁

    I love your glittery shoes! I have a similar pair and they always make me feel a bit magical when I wear them~

    We had a lovely weekend over here- finished setting up the nursery, saw our families and went for a little drive which ended with the best hot chocolate ever ♥ Perfect!

    It makes me really happy that you have your Easter in the fall! I think it’s the most pleasant season, and I like that I can watch you enjoy it while my spring wakes up here on the other side of the world.
    Enjoy tights and days that taste like giddy last hurrahs.
