This year marked our second Freaster holiday. In case you’re not familiar Freaster stands for Friend Easter – much like Friendsgiving standing for Friend Thanksgiving. Clever, eh? Yep.
Last year Tyler and I took Olive to church with Brooke and Scott for her first Easter. We then headed to IKEA for a wonderful meal and made sushi back at Brooke and Scott’s house.
My hopes were high that we would eat at IKEA again this year. The food really was quite yummy and it seems like a neat tradition to start. But unfortunately IKEA did not offer an Easter meal ON Easter this year. Though the store was open on Easter. So I’m not sure what the reasoning was. I was bummed.
Tyler went out of town on Saturday morning and didn’t return until Sunday afternoon. This left Olive and I to work on Easter meal preparations together on Saturday and we went to church together on Sunday. Brooke and Scott wanted to go to church also but the timing of the service they wanted to attended didn’t seem like it would work with Olive’s “schedule”. So Olive and I went to Bethlehem for the 9:45 service. Olive didn’t sit still.
And then we went out for lunch together.
After Tyler arrived home I finished up a few meal related tasks, Olive used my old Easter basket to find some eggs and sticks in our backyard, and then Brooke and Scott came over.
I made a giant egg shaped raw carrot cake. ha.
We enjoyed a yummy meal together and now our second anual Freaster is behind us.
