Too Many Pictures

for one post...so our four day weekend is going to have be spread out over multiple posts!! I guess it's really four and a half days b/c the kids had their first egg hunt at the sitter's house Thursday afternoon. It was Emma's 2nd already b/c she had one at school before she came to the sitter's to hunt eggs with Aaron!

We dyed eggs Friday at my parents' house...and that night the kids spent the night there so Michael & I had a date night. Saturday morning we picked them & my parents up and we headed to the zoo. We had a blast...and instead of cooking a big Easter meal we packed a picnic & ate our Easter dinner at the zoo! It was fantastic. Those pics will come later in their own post.

Sunday morning after the kids found their Easter Baskets & their lollipops that grew (we plant Jelly Beans that the Easter Bunny magically makes grow into lollipops), my parents went with us to church and then out for brunch. Then we headed to my in-laws' house to celebrate Easter with them. We had a good time & the kids had a blast with their cousins. They hunted eggs & hid them for their daddies to hunt, dyed eggs, & played bubbles - we always end up outside with bubbles when we visit! LOL! Hey - who doesn't love bubbles??

Here are a few pics from our weekend...with the exception of the zoo pics!

Michael and I took an extra day off yesterday, too and spent the day in Galveston. The weather was so nice...we took our bikes & rode up & down the seawall and after lunch spent some time on the Strand, too! Date nights are fun, but I think I've found that I prefer Date DAYS instead - it's nice to have to entire day to ourselves like that!!


I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter weekend as well!
