our easter weekend

Chris and I had a fun Easter weekend. Saturday morning I got up and went to the gym. Followed by some grocery shopping. Then Chris and I had a fun date night that I planned. We went to dinner at Simms Steakhouse. Dinner wasn't that great, but the view was nice, and my meal was yummy. Following dinner we went to the last Avalanche game of the season. Unfortunately we lost 6 to 1, but Chris had never been to a NHL game, so it was a fun experience. Overall it was a great night and a new memory for Chris and I to share.

Sunday morning we got up and went to church. The message was a powerful one. Celebrating Easter and a new start. It was joyful and blessed. Afterwards we went home and cooked a nice big breakfast. Scrambled eggs with canadian bacon, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, and cheese. With fruit, potatoes, and banana nut bread on the side!
For the rest of the day Chris cleaned out the garage. I have to say that it's a joy to see Chris come into the role of home-owner. He's never been a home-owner before, so it's great to see him take on the challenge. Last weekend we were about to leave the house, when I noticed water slowly coming out from under the freezer portion of the fridge. He was quick to become Mr. Fix-It, get the leaking stopped, and find the problem.
He's completely cleaned up the backyard, and has even started a garden! I sure am lucky to be marrying this man!
After his rearrangement of the garage we then made a super delicious dinner. He grilled some chicken while I made some mashed potatoes and fresh green beans.
We just have so much fun together.
Our first Easter together was fun and memorable. I'm looking forward to many many more.

That sounds like such a nice day! I would love a garden, especially if somebody else planted it and took care of it! Way to go Chris!
