weekend review {Easter in Delta}

Eric and I had planned to go visit my in laws over Easter weekend but his awesome work schedule had him working all weekend. Big time booooo on that one! There aren't many things I love about Delta, Utah (besides my in laws) and if I ever had to live there I'd cry everyday. I'm feeling pretty picked on in our new little town... but seriously, living in Delta would do me in! But that small town knows how to make Easter weekend a gooood time!
He has Eric's eyes and his favorite color is pink? My nephew just might have me wrapped around his fingers!
5... the winning number!
My free bag of groceries!
My nephew knows what's good.... yummy blue cotton candy :)
I got to tag along with my niece and nephews to watch them do some fun Easter egg hunts. I forgot how exciting this holiday is for kids... maybe I need one of my own so I'll stop forgetting? HA HA! After the egg hunt we went to town. The Quality grocery store has a celebration every Easter weekend that is disgustingly good. 25 cent ice cream, 25 cent cotton candy, 25 cent hot dogs, and free soda. You  literally eat yourself sick, ha ha! But it is SO fun! The whole town just hangouts out at the grocery store for the day :) The best part (I know.... what could be better than 25 cent crap??) is that the store will do random giveaways! You scramble to stand on a number and cross your fingers that you'll win. And this girl won! Ok, ok, my win may have been rigged. My sister in law, Amy, told them I was so excited about the store's celebration that I came up without my husband to join in the fun! So they picked my number :) But then Amy won a bag of groceries and that definitely wasn't rigged! We're just a lucky family!
Even though I missed Eric like crazy... I was so happy to spend the weekend with my Brinkerhoff family! What a perfect way to celebrate Christ and everything He has done for us. Because of our Savior's sacrifice we have the opportunity to be with our families forever. I am eternally grateful for my brother, Jesus Christ.

Sounds like a wonderful Easter! My jaw might have dropped when I saw those deals at the store. I didn't know deals like that even existed anymore! Lucky you!

Cindy and Jordan said...

That looks like so much fun. Talk about good deals. I love my nieces and nephews and spoil them way too much!! They make me want my own babies....most of the time:)

brielle dubois said...

hahaha oh delta.... my niece lives there and it's not exactly the most wonderful place in the world! but still looks like you had an awesome time!!!

Sue said...

I didn't know there was another person in the world that knew where Delta, Utah was! My family has a cabin on the "lake" there so all my childhood memories are boating/water skiing in a tiny town no one has ever heard of :)

Jamie said...

Some of my fam is from Delta! Haha SO po-dunk but it's got some charm...somewhere. Maybe in the tiny-ness of it? Hee. Your hair looks beautiful, btw!

Whitney Leigh said...

Um...I wish I had a grocery store like that in Provo!! Seriously, they would be millionaires...
I'm sorry you missed your hubs, but I am glad you had a good Easter weekend with your in-laws, they sound like a lot of fun!

Kylie said...

What a fun weekend :) I could never live in a small town, but I have to admit they know how to celebrate holidays! It's my goal to go to a small town for the 4th of July someday...we'll see when that happens again :)

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

I love hot dogs. Is that weird? I could eat them every day but I recently heard that they cause colon cancer. Blah.

this looked like fun, actually. my daughter had softball games, so we weren't able to partake in any of the egg hunts around town. next year, for sure!

[oomph.]

Alyssa said...

What a fun weekend! That sounds awesome!

Ashley said...

I've spent my fair share of holidays, and even birthdays, without my husband due to his job.... so I can relate! It's not always fun being without the hubs, but it looks like you did have a wonderful time anyhow! (:

25 cent hot dogs?! Please tell me you ate at least 4. haha

Lachele said...

Easter in small towns is AMAZING!! Looks like you had tons of fun. Glad to hear it. xo

Rolled Up Pretty said...

You look SO cute. I am obsessed with your outfit :) You are so skinny too! And that hot dog looks amazing. I forced my husband to go to five guys this weekend for a hot dog. Ha! Sorry I didn't email you back the other day, I don't check that email very often! No big deal if you don't want it, there's so much cute stuff out there! :)

Kristin said...

cotton candy and ice cream?? so jealous!!

Liesl said...

Loving all these pictures, especially your pink and green outfit combo...so pretty! :)

Emma Frances said...

Your nephew is seriously so cute! And I love that his favorite color is pink! And seriously these people know how to celebrate Easter! I need some cotton candy! Haha. And Delta is actually where a bunch of Race's family is from! We have gone there for family reunions. So small but fun as well! That is so sad that Eric wasn't able to join in the fun for the weekend though!

Afton Brinkerhoff said...

That's hilarious that you would hate living there because I just told Gregg I wouldn't mind living out there if he ever wanted to move out there. I love it.

Gah our nephews are way too adorable.

TheTinyHeart said...

That grocery store celebration sounds SO fun! I want cotton candy for a quarter, YUM!

What a FUN time. Small towns know how to celebrate, right?! Can't believe they had such cheap treats at the grocery store! I vote every town should do that. ;) Those little kiddos are PRECIOUS...and so are you. :D

Mrs W said...

Love your outfit!! I don't have the eye to pull off cute colored pants like that...I just don't think they look good on me and I can never coordinate outfits!

Janna Renee said...

Now I am craving a hot dog...Looks like you had a great Easter! Can you teach me how to do my hair? Yours always looks great and mine just looks straight!
