Easter back home in NC was always a big deal. As a little girl, my parents always prepared me an Easter Basket and we dyed eggs.
When I got a bit older we always had a nice ceremony at Church then a yummy meal of ham, deviled eggs and all the yummy southern trimmings.
Here in New York it is just Lee, the pups and myself. I figured we'd do something a little different...
We jump on our bikes and head to a bahn mi Vietnamese sandwich shop then head over to Union square for a picnic.

Next it's off to the Easter Bonnet parade. It is really more like a block party of crazy hats and some dolled up puppies.

On the way home I did actually get a basket- well it wasn't an Easter basket but a bike basket in stead!
Back home we grab up the girls and take them in a nice walk. They were so happy.
For dinner we opted for the closest thing we could find to a good southern meal- Low Country over in the West Village. They did have deviled eggs. They were not as good as mom's but they made do!
|Shrimp and grits for me and fried rabbit and waffles for Lee|
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter as much as I did. Happy Easter!Here are a few more pics from the day.
