Serious Picture Overload

We had the best Easter that I ever remember. The kids had fun, we were able to have fun and relax, and we ate all day long. Since Roman and I went to church on Saturday night, we were able to take our time doing our egg hunt and enjoying the kids Easter basket treats before we headed for my parents. The kids were so excited to get bubbles and small Mario Cart cars. Oh the simple pleasures of life.

The Easter Bunny has arrived!

The aftermath of the egg hunt and looking through the buckets.

Maggie wasn't sure exactly what was going on, but she enjoyed her bucket too!

(No, that chocolate bunny is not open.)

The boys and their bubbles.

We went to my parents house to finish up cooking and preparing for dinner. Braeden helped to put together the cake. He was so proud and it looked really cute. 

All of my grandparents joined us for dinner. Maggie loves to sit and listen to my grandmother sing. No matter if she sings in English or Polish, Maggie calmly sits there and acts like she understands every word. I absolutely love that my kids have great-grandparents that they know and are active participants in their lives. My grandmother in the pictures still babysits for us!

We didn't get to see the cousins for long since they were having dinner with the other side of their family today, but we did manage to try and get a picture of all of them in the few minutes we were together. To have them all looking at the camera, despite the facial expressions, is a huge win.

After dinner we headed to our friend's house for the last egg hunt of the day. The kids were very excited and did really well. A lot of credit goes to Neil for his creative egg hiding techniques. They were all so cute running around the yard with their baskets and then cracking those eggs open to see what loot they had acquired. Melissa and I spent far too much time filling the eggs the other day. We were however, with it enough to choose a color for each child so that they knew which eggs were there's and everyone got an even number. We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends who feel far more like family.

We had a truly wonderful day. It was everything Easter should be. We celebrated Jesus rising again, reveled in the loot from the Easter bunny and spent lots of quality time with those we love so much.
