Easter Weekend 2012

Saturday morning brought Easterpalooza!  A certain 3 year old was very excited.
 There was awesome face painting - though I miss my little bunny from last year...  Spidey is not the same!
 Friends to hang out with and race for eggs with....
 Cousins to play with...
 Girls to shyly smile at....
 Candy to be sorted and eaten...  And shared from friends when that same certain 3 year old freaked out and didn't get any... (thanks Logan - you are so sweet!)
 Bunnies to be hugged!
 Even for those first-Easter babies!
 Balloon animals, cotton candy, pancakes, and most of all fun....
 After lunch (and several meltdowns), we headed to the U's for an Easter BBQ
 Played in the backyard....
 Gave the piano (and our ears) a workout....
 Dyed some cool Spidey eggs.....
 And had special Easter rides on the tractor (note the lack of Upa's hands on the steering wheel - eek!)
 That night we had notes to write to the Easter Bunny...
 Including the question, "Do you lay eggs?"
 He answered, "No way!  I'm male and a mammal!"  Nice science vocab Mr. E Bunny!
This little egg was cutest!  So excited we got to spend his first Easter with him!
 The bunny came and he spoiled!
 And the boys were all so excited!
 That silly bunny hid the eggs outside- the dogs found them first.
 We breakfasted with pancakes, fruit, and LEGOs.
 Took turns holding Cooper...
 Begging over and over for One more turn!
 On our way to church we snapped some family pics...  Such big kids...



Later that afternoon was biking at Clear Creek with the Barrys.....
 Such a gorgeous day and fun friends!
 Even if the three kids refused a genuinely good picture.....
Traditional dinner out - lots of (loud) conversations with the kids and a million giggles....
 Lucas insisted I take a picture of him blowing on his corndog....  It's all about capturing momentous occasions...
I'm not ready to go back to reality, but this week reminded me what it's all about - Love.  Love God, love people.  And we sure do have a lot of great people around us to love.  We're blessed.  Happy Easter!
