Another holiday weekend, another holiday spent different than usual.

Easter weekend is a big one for my family.

Every Easter is spent going to church and then spending time together with family.

Over the years, my family has always gotten together for Easter dinner.

All 21 of us, including the 10 little ones, cram together in my parent’s house and we play games, talk, laugh and just enjoy each other’s company.

I think we all know why that didn’t happen this year. (Darn Covid)

This year Easter Sunday dinner was spent with me, my parents and my brother and sister-in-law and their three kids who live in the same house as my parents.

It was still a great meal, we still played games, talked, laughed and enjoyed each other’s company but it just wasn’t with the entire family.

I was able to see some of my siblings over the weekend though.

We went for walks outside and I went for a run with one of my sisters but it wasn’t our usual Easter gathering.

I played some video games with my brother from Ontario as well.

I also managed to find some time to see some of my friends outdoors.

We played a few games on Spikeball together and enjoyed seeing one another for the first time in a while.

While it wasn’t the Easter weekend I’m used to, I was able to make the most of it.

I hope everyone else enjoyed their Easter weekend as well.

But man, I can’t wait until my family can gather again and enjoy each other’s company like we used to.

I sure hope it’s sooner rather than later.
