Lasting Memories 34

It's all about Easter at Lasting Memories today! Bunnies, eggs, and ducks, oh my! 

I've been wanting to scrapbook my pictures from Easter 2010 for a while now.  We went to my husband's grandmother's house for brunch.  We took some family photos, something we don't normally do.  My husband's grandmother passed away last July and these are the last pictures that we have of her.

I apologize that the photos are a little dark, it was pouring outside and the lighting was bad in my craft room.

It was my brother in law's 30th birthday on Easter, so there's pictures of his AWESOME Flyer's cake on the left page of the layout.  My husband's uncle made the cake - it looked like a puck coming out of the hard sugar "ice."
