We started Easter weekend off a little early on Friday meeting JC for lunch. I love being able to go on lunch dates with ALL my boys. It seriously makes the week! And, after a busy week it was much needed before our busier weekend.
Saturday our friends held their annual Easter Egg hunt in their backyard. It is always a hit and lots of fun to visit with so many good friends.
After Kamden found out what was inside the eggs, he would pick one up, set his pacifier down, open the egg and stuff jelly beans in his mouth... and then move on to the next one.
The one year olds got to hunt for eggs first... Kamden and his friend Kate found the jackpot. =)
Zenock could barely stop to take a picture. He was on a mission.
When we got home there was a package on the doorstep from Grandpa and Grandma Larson. A Birthday present for Zenock and a little toy ambulance (complete with sounds!) for Kamden. He has been in love and drives it along the window sill in the kitchen every day while I'm cooking.
Kamden always has a bag of his favorite toys at the moment that he carries around with him for a few days. Today it was Easter eggs, bugs, and his ambulance.
Later we colored eggs... for the first time in three years! I always think this is something that has to be done the night before Easter which was the tradition in my family. BUT, every year the night before Easter is super crazy, chaotic, and there is always something going on. I need to remind myself that it is ok to do it a few days earlier.
While we were at church, the Easter Bunny left the boys a few treats.
Zenock was pretty excited about new DS games. =) Thanks Easter Bunny.
My little Kamden loves treats and carried around "his" treats all afternoon.
This is a pretty typical picture of these two... It takes about fifty shots and a lot of patience to get a good one. I gave up around 15 - just not worth it. Zenock hates the sun being in his eyes (although it is on the other side of the house) and Kamden trying to get away from his brother. Memories for a lifetime. =)
We had a great little Easter. We had some friends over Sunday evening for dinner and loved being able to spend a fun relaxing evening together.
