Home for Easter!

This past Easter was a blast to be with the family in Pensacola. Obviously, being out west, I don't get to go home as often as I would like so its always a special treat to be able to come home. As always, my nephews were out of control- and as much fun as ever! They are getting so big- Jacob was in the midst of writing a book (with chapters and everything!), Cale was showing me his skills on the Indo Board and is crazy smart on the computer and Lucas is getting so big and doing everything his older brothers are doing! They are such a handful (I don't know how Rachelle does it!) but it is so much fun to spend time with them and watch them grow up!
Mom and dad were doing their thing- dad was cooking like a maniac and I got mom to hem some clothes that were too big for me. It seemed like old times! I couldn't believe how much we ate and drank while we were home... there is no such thing as dieting when we come home for the holiday that's for sure. We went to Easter Vigil mass on Saturday (which we won't do again because it was like 2 hours long with 20 different readings!) so that we could all just hang out on Sunday and get up late, eat all day and have some family and friends come over to the house to visit. It was so nice to see the Martinez's who I haven't seen in a while (and my Auntie Ely and Uncle Roger are my godparents!) and their cool new ride- a convertible Lexus! This car suites them well. Later in the afternoon, the boys picked calamansi off the tree in the back for us to eat and it was too cute because Lucas was so short, we had to get him a bench to stand on and then he was still too short so Rachelle had to reach up and grab the tree down so he could reach it! Afterwards, all the kids that were over did an Easter egg hunt and then the adults ravaged through their baskets for the best chocolate candy we could get our hands on- not that we didn't eat enough already. Most of the time when we were home, Ron worked on getting the camero up and running and we did take the car to church so I got to ride in it for like 10 minutes. Its amazing that all of the original parts exist and of course ron had his ipod all rigged in their and even brought the external speakers so we could rock out to his tunes while driving along the beautiful Gulf Beach Highway (ok, so its not that beautiful!). He did a great job and the car is in really great condition!
Oh well, until the next time we are all together..
