We had the perfect Easter weekend. We both had Good Friday off, so we went to Pipeline and took advantage of one of the best beach day we've had in months, followed by dinner at Pizza Bob's in Haleiwa.
On Saturday we decided to paddle out to Chinaman's Hat. We hadn't done this since we were here in 2007, and it has been on our list. Tommy and Jozie joined for the excursion.
We traded between paddling two to a board, and the girls paddling and the boys snorkeling. Rumor has it that these waters are shark-infested! We didn't see any.
We made it past prickly bushes and up rock walls to the top of the hat, where we enjoyed 360 degree views of the bay.
When we got back to shore, we had a classy BBQ lunch. (Salt & Vinnies not pictured)
And partied the night away (by which I mean we got personal pan pizzas and watched Country Strong, which wasn't that good.)
On Sunday we woke up to a surprise from the Easter Bunny. Sadly, our two favorites (Reeses Eggs and Cadburry Mini Eggs) were not a part of our basket. This is one of the many joys of living in a small town with one little grocery store.
After church we had our friends back over for a traditional Easter feast. Deviled egg appeteasers, scalloped potatoes, asparagus, spinach salad, and the most amazing ham we've ever had. It was cooked perfectly with an orange glaze. Dessert was a pineapple upside-down cake.
