Easter Weekend

I love Easter. We had a great Easter weekend, doing all the fun Easter stuff. It is great being with family, seeing my son's face light up when he opens an egg filled with candy, and remembering the true meaning as we think of Christ and his great sacrifice and wonderful resurrection.

We colored eggs with Autumn, Doug and Braxton. Gavin was a little too hands on, and wanted to do it himself, but the eggs turned out great, and we had no spills!
On Saturday morning we got wet in the rain as we went to the Easter egg hunt at a park near our house. It was crazy! They let parent's help, which is a joke, because all you saw was a sea of parent's out there trying to get as much candy as they can. Poor little Gavin and Braxton ended up with a few pieces of candy, so we went back to my house and did a little Easter egg hunt there. They got much more candy and had fun. That was all Braxton could talk about was the Easter egg hunt at Brynnie's house.

Later we went to Casey's Aunt's house for the annual Easter party. Gavin is a pro at finding candy and eggs. He knew just what to do! He got quite the bag full!

On Easter morning we had a little visitor visit our house. We were so sick of Gavin eating candy and making a mess, we were glad the Easter Bunny only filled his eggs with cars. He loves playing with his cars.

A brilliant Easter bunny visited your house. I wish we would've had the car eggs here. I was just saying that this is as bad as Halloween.
So fun!!
