Easter with my Hubby's Family

Saturday, March 31, 2012

It's a cool morning in Central Iowa, not near the 80+ degree high that had been predicted earlier in the week, and we're off to a family picnic.

We'll have tons of fun, laughs, and and of course an Easter egg hunt. And get a load of this menu:

- fried chicken
- BBQ chicken
- baked beans
- potato salad
- coleslaw
- chips
- dessert
- birthday cake
- and don't forget the Easter candy!!

Oy!! I'm bringing some veggies!!!!!!!!! And I'll be bringing my own water, because with this group, they'll probably have Coke & Mtn. Dew. (No thanks!)

So I'll be enjoying some BBQ chicken & veggies, and knowing me I'll splurge on a little bit of baked beans, potato salad & dessert OR cake. And when I return, it will be time for my long Saturday workout.

Looking forward to a good time!!

    Hope you had a great time and enjoyed yourself. It's chilly here in Michigan but it is do-able.

    i find chasing my cousins or nieces is a great way to burn off some of those calories. another trick is to spend more time visiting while holding a small plate. it will look like you are eating plenty and people will not keep offering you food.
