Friday evening we had Good Friday service at church and it was one of the best services ever. Everything was so great and really started our Easter weekend off right. Friday night after the service Michael and I needed a little grown up time - just for a couple hours so the kids went home to watch a movie with Teta & Geddo and we had dinner out just the two of us. It was needed for sure. There has been so much going on lately and we just needed a little bit to focus on one another.
Saturday we were up early and headed back to the church for the Easter Egg hunt...there were over 13,000 eggs!!! Yes, you read that right - thirteen thousand!! They had two different hunts based on age groups - smart to keep the little ones off to their own! Though Aaron did forego the Kinder and under group to hunt with his sister and friends in the 1st to 6th grade group - he can hold his own! After the hunt we hung around to play, get faces painted and eat hot dogs!! It was such a beautiful day for it, too!
I think they both made out pretty good in the egg department!
Told ya he could hang with the big kids!
Then time for a little bouncy fun!
And they're off - caught him just as he and a friend took off to race through the bouncy!
Can't say no to face painting!
When we came home the fun didn't stop! We did have to work out back for a while - we've been in a major backyard remodel for a while and it's still ongoing - but that's for another post! But then we were playing with friends, make treats and getting ready for another one of Michael's famous crawfish boils! The man does know how to boil bugs!!
Emma and Addison supplied the dessert!
The kids have to all check out the bugs first, of course!
Then when it got dark the fun didn't stop!! We had a glow in the dark egg hunt!!
We hid the eggs in three different yards and I tried to get a picture of how it looked - doesn't really do it justice, though!
The kids thought it was awesome, though and the grown-ups enjoyed it, too!
Then this morning, Emma was in my room at 1:30 AM to tell me that the Easter Bunny had visited!! I told her she had to go back to sleep, though - it was way too early! So she did...and came back at 6:30! Sheesh girlie!!! Okay - we got up! We knew we needed to be at church early anyway, so I told her to go wake up her brother!
You can see he was still sleepy!
EB went with a baseball theme this year...
Instead of Easter Baskets this year, the Easter Bunny filled two new baseball backpacks for them!!
Peep in an egg anyone!?!?
Then it was time to put it all away and get dressed for church. Daddy cut some flowers from the garden for us to take to church to put on the cross.
Then it was time for Easter lunch at Teta & Geddo's house after church.
We also finally dyed Easter Eggs, too!
They took this very seriously!
Afterwards we just enjoyed the afternoon...had a little playtime...
Deep in thought? Or posing? :)
