Easter Weekend

Our Easter was super low key this year. We did not decorate eggs (my children were deprived this year), we did not go all out with gifts and things either like I have in the past. Instead, we went to a small Easter breakfast with my parents on Saturday morning and had the kids do the easter egg hunt there. It was such a beautiful day that we decided to go to the beach after that. We met up with out good friends, Jon and Tressie, and had a great time surfing and playing in the water and laying out. The day took a horrible turn when I was rear ended by a motorcycle. My friend and I went to pick up some lunch for everyone, so it was just the two of us in my car. When I got out to ask if the guy was okay, he did not answer me. He seemed really drunk. In fact, when he tried to get back on his bike, he fell back into my car and left another huge dent. Since his bike did not start, he pushed it over to an alley way and I followed him. The cops showed up, but we both told him it was fine and we would exchange information. He gave us forms to fill out and went on his way. BIG MISTAKE!!! When the cops left, the man started getting really rude with me. He asked to take a picture of my driver license and I refused. I said "you have my insurance information. I do not feel comfortable allowing you to take a picture of my ID as well." He started getting really mean and my friend yelled at me to get in the car. She looked panicked. I started to get in the car and the guy whistled loudly and screamed something. All of the sudden, bikers and other guys stepped out. I guess my friend saw that they were closing in and that is why she screamed at me to get in the car. I got in and locked the doors when he stood in front of my car and put his hand on my hood. He then said "You better not run over me!" I saw bikers start to come up on the sides of me and I reversed as fast as I could. I was afraid for my life! I took off down the highway shaking and in shock. I have yet to get that whole situation figured out, but it was really scary. I was ready to leave the beach after that.
On Sunday morning, the kids had a little egg hunt and opened their baskets. Later on, we had a nice, ham dinner at my mom and dad's where the kids were spoiled with more toys and goodies! Overall, it was a great weekend. If only I had not almost gotten killed. By the way, I am very happy that my car insurance card I had on me was the one from utah, so that guy does NOT have my home address. THANK GOODNESS!!!
