The Easter bunny has come and gone, but he left us enough goodies to devour for the rest of the week.

After our big breakfast this morning, we were going to go walk it off, but it started raining right after and did not let up for the rest of the day, so instead we plopped ourselves on the couch and watched a few episodes of NCIS, Chuck, Castle, the latest Lost and The Amazing Race. Maybe not the most productive day, but we loved every minute of it.

For dinner, we cooked ourselves some nice Easter Ham with Mango Ginger Glaze, and it was most delicious.

Now it's time to check out today's episode of The Pacific.
