This Easter we kept things laid back and casual. Just a few days after Easter Sunday is when I departed for Chicago and Milwaukee, then home for a few days, then on to the Black Hills for the film festival. My parents came for the weekend since I refused to travel anywhere!
Easter morning the girls woke up and Grace was very disappointed. There wasn't an Easter egg, basket, or one piece of candy to be found in the house. Until Mommy looked outside! I pointed out a trail of fun things in the yard leading up to something on the front steps! The Easter bunny left the baskets outside! Cool!
We went to church that morning (bummer I don't have a picture of Grace's whole cute outfit...was a fun maxi skirt!) Of course, we met up with the Bothuns and tried for the gazillionth time to get a decent picture....still failed!
Annie was having a blast a church running around in her Easter princess outfit complete with fox shoes. Not sure if the bunny jacket and the fox shoes go together, but we went with it. It was all fun until she wiped out. Poppa to the rescue....
Then we came home to get ready for lunch with Cody's grandparents. First, we had to enjoy being outside!
However, before we even got to lunch, it was more bad news for Little One. She stubbed her toe in a major way! She gashed it open pretty good and was NOT happy about it. It was bleeding quite a bit and this was her first band-aid experience, so she wasn't sure to trust it! We got her all fixed up and Momma snuggled her...
Before we knew it, she was back playing. She was pretty particular about which shoes she could wear since her owie was bothering her. And she had to stop and check it out every once in awhile...
No rest for the weary...especially when you're wearing a bunny outfit.
Then it was on to more Easter fun...Nana had a fun surprise for the girls for Easter! New cowgirl boots! Yeee-hawww! Grace was in love. Annie was mostly in love with the chick that somehow peeps when you hold it.
After nap, lunch, and some rest time on that owie, it was off to Susie's for our joint Easter egg hunt! Dean and Annie are about 5 months apart in age, but you'd never know it. Dean is bigger than her! They had fun hunting down eggs together.
Blondie had filled up her bucket...and then some! It wasn't tough when Susie hid about 174 eggs in her yard for one six year old and two just barely toddlers.
We always enjoy our time with our friends and neighbors. This photo just says it all. We're able to walk across the street and have our whole family be welcome and comfortable at Susie's. Cody's enjoying a beverage, and my parents and Cody's grandparents are enjoying dessert on the deck while watching the littles hunt for eggs! A perfect day!
