Happy Easter!

We made a whirlwind trip to Ohio to celebrate Easter with family. Per usual, I totally forgot I had a camera when we were with Brad's side, but we had a great time playing with the grandparents and hunting eggs.

When we got to Napoleon, Aunt Shannon reminded me to take lots of pictures since she couldn't be there this year. Our visit started with the traditional egg coloring:
Please notice that both children managed to put their shirts on backwards for the experience. This year, they were both determined to make vivid eggs, and Issa learned that dipping just part of the egg in each color made some pretty cool tie-dye eggs.

We then headed out for the annual Easter pictures with Issa's bush:
Aunt Shannon still sent appropriate attire, and the kids would live in the hats if I let them.

You can dress him up but you can't calm him down:
Such sweet siblings:
We had our Easter dinner Saturday night, and these cousins had way too much fun playing together:
I so love that these kiddos love playing together even though they don't see each other often.

After everyone left, Nana helped the kids make Easter cookies:
Each ingredient told part of the Easter story.
Since they were meringue based, when we woke up Easter morning they were empty--just like the tomb.

I can't explain this face:
Easter morning, the kids conned us into rejecting tradition and hunting in their PJs:
The bunny was very good to the kiddos:
It took us forever to find the last egg, but Evan finally did. The kids consented to the traditional Easter pics. Issa looking way too grown up:
He is too cute for words:
Such adorable kiddos:
Once we were all ready, we headed down to have brunch with Granddaddy and Grandma Judy. The kids love his stories:
We were so grateful for the time with family. These are memories that are worth the miles.
