easter weekend album

Monday, April 21, 2014

so we had a splendid easter weekend. i hope you all did too! 

our long weekend break started with a rio 2 movie viewing on friday with our little guy. that movie is truly hilarious. i think i'm going to get the soundtrack (i love sergio mendes). the weather was also gorgeous so we had lunch al fresco at one of our favorite places. we enjoyed delicious bites of ahi tuna, cheesesteak eggrolls (tdf) and shrimp tacos. 

first thing on saturday, we did a power walk in our neighborhood. it was still a beautiful day and a long brisk walk was the perfect way to burn a few calories. that evening, we went to see an easter concert at our church featuring a malaysian-born internationally acclaimed one-man orchestra composer/arranger whose take on classical hymns music arrangements are just spectacular. the concert was amazing as well as his ministry and testimony on converting to christianity was just moving and touching. it was a treat to see him perform. 

we were up and at it so early on easter sunday morning. we attended the 7 am easter mass and had lunch afterwards at a newly-opened argentinian steakhouse. it was ok. the service was great. they had a special easter menu but i think i would have preferred their regular lunch menu they serve during a regular week. the prices and portion looks like it was more for dinner and not for brunch or lunch. we may try going back on any regular day to try out their steaks which i heard are really good. 

it was a nice long weekend break for all of us. my sis-in-law came to town and it was great that she was able to spend time with us especially with aston.  i would love to hear how your weekend was!
