As promised, here is the Easter post that is worth the wait!
We started the weekend with Daddy's side of the family, but...no memory card means no pictures. We did have a fabulous time playing with the cousins and visiting with everyone.
When we arrived at Nana and Papa's house, the kids spent most of the day playing. Mom and I visited and prepared for dinner, and then as soon as Aunt Shannon arrived, it was time to dye eggs:
Brace yourself for this next picture:
We grown-ups were a little frustrated. We had all seen them on line, and ours did not look like theirs. I did some researching, and I think we might try again--smaller jars, diamond glitter, break the stick when you shake the glitter. We did almost none of those things. The kids thought they were really cool, though!
After they were sufficiently sugared up from cake, they went outside to play bubble wands:
After the party, Evan and Uncle Jeff did a little train building:
Sunday morning, the kids were thrilled to learn that the Easter Bunny had indeed come!
He couldn't quite reach! I would say it was a successful hunt, though:
After the hunt, we were able to snap a few family pictures:
This is always an incredibly fast trip, but I am so grateful for the time with family. I think the pictures capture the warmth and the memories--the Easter Love.
