It’s hard to believe that another holiday has come and gone. Be prepared for picture overload! I am letting the pictures tell the story of our Easter week/weekend.
The celebrations started earlier last week when the kids and I had a “stuff the eggs with loot” party to prepare for our annual Easter Egg Hunt.
Saturday, mid morning we had our egg hunt. We invited some friends over to join us. Including us there were 5 families and a total of 14 kids. We ate lunch together and then started the races. The little ones went first and stayed in the backyard. This is how I found Ady.
She’ll catch on! :)
When it was the big kids turn they headed out to the front. Tami is the best hider ever! She puts the eggs in the most clever spots. Who ever parks their car in the front always gets eggs put on their tires, in the door handles and on the hood. Next year I’m going to have to take pictures of all of her hiding spots. It always goes so fast! I’m just happy I got the pictures I did.
Sunday morning the kids woke up to find easter bunny trails leading to their baskets.
This is a fun tradition that we started a couple of years ago.
We let the kids come down one by one to figure out which trail is theirs.
The suspense is fun. Especially when I make them wait “just one more minute” so I can take pictures before they come down and it gets destroyed. They really love that! :)
Ady wasn’t sure what to think when she saw her trail. Almost like it was too good to be true!
Then she wouldn’t stop eating the candy. She had NO interest in her basket.
The Easter Bunny went with a summer theme this year.
Everyone got a new swim suit and flip flops, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, squirt guns and plenty of swim toys for the pool.
Lastly, our Easter ended with going to church and of course stopping to snap a photo of the kids in their Sunday best.
They are so good to me to go along with my whims of pulling over on the side of the road and making them stomp through prickly grass so mom could get her Easter picture! I love them!
