Ryan and I have just returned from a wonderful, fun-filled Easter weekend with the Corum side of the family. It was such a nice long weekend and has made the return to work and the cruel schedule of Ryan being gone weekdays that much harder! We miss family (and each other) already.
Sunday morning, we awoke and had a quick breakfast before heading out to church for Resurrection Sunday service. It was a wonderful service led by my pop-in-law Pastor Keith. I love attending Ryan’s home church and feel like a member of the church family just as much as I do a member of the Corum family. Everyone is so warm and welcoming and so full of hugs and kind words. After service we headed out on a Starbucks run with good friends Tim and Amy. Hilarity ensued, as Tim is probably one of the funniest people we know. We headed back to the house to exchange Easter baskets and hang out. The Corums gave us a great basket filled with candy, some favorite food items and all the fixin’s for ice cream sundaes. We can’t wait to put it all to good use. I gave Ryan a basket with a few favorite things and some random Easter items. Sometimes the kid in you just never dies out…
Early afternoon we saddled up to the table and inhaled a giant meal of pork ribs (slow roasted with love by Keith), baked beans, potato salad, bread, fruit… it was quite an Easter feast! Something in that food must have sparked a new found hunger in Ryan and I because, despite the giant feast, we proceeded to eat ourselves into oblivion all afternoon, and evening, capping it off with a Taco Bell run. It was crazy!
By Monday morning, it was already time to pack up the car and head home… and upon returning to Kingsburg, Ryan barely had time to shower and change and had to head to work to finish out the day. I, collapsed into a 3 hour nap. All that relaxing and eating must have gotten to me.
