What a beautiful weekend it was!! Did anyone do anything fun for Easter? My husband and I got up fairly early and did a little spring cleaning before making our way to Rockford, IL where his aunt and uncle made reservations for lunch at 3pm for the fam….or so we thought it was 3. As we were heading out of the city, traffic was really bad so we called Steve’s parents to give them a heads up we were going to be a little late. They thought we were kidding when we mentioned we just left and it was already 1:45 (Rockford is about an 1 1/2 away). Turns out we definitely had the time wrong and we were supposed to be there at 2 :/. With traffic, we were about an hour and a half late and felt absolutely terrible. Thankfully, we were able to join everyone at his aunt and uncle’s place for a couple hours after to chat and catch up.
We left just as the sun was beginning to set, which made for a great time to take some outfit pics. There was a park right nearby that we went to and it was so nice to not be cold and rush back and forth to the car every few minutes! After snapping some shots we were starving, so we stopped to grab some grub before hitting the road. Thank goodness we stopped! It took us a brutal 2 1/2 hours to get home between holiday traffic and construction. On the plus side, with that much time in the car, I was able to play phone police (more…)
