easter sunday

today was easter, and it was a gorgeous day! jamie and i had planned to go to the late easter mass, so i got up and made a special brunch: california eggs benedict. it took longer than i had thought (because of the hash browns), but it turned out delicious! AND we didn't have to deal with the crowds at a restaurant! then we went to mass (it was my first one ever). the church was beautiful! i was really expecting a formal service, traditional hymns with a choir and organ, the whole shabang. however, it wasn't formal at all music-wise. i'm wondering if it was because it was the late mass? anyway, after mass we were going to take sophia and a picnic to the park, but we were both still full from brunch, so we just packed up the dessert i had made and took it with us. it was such a nice day, so of course the park was full. fortunately it is a HUGE park, so we were able to find a spot. we watched people playing frisbee, soccer, cricket, flying kites, and even juggling and doing other circus tricks! and the best part of all: we made it home with no scratches from sophia! j/k she's a good girl most of the time. it was a really great easter, hope yours was too!
