Easter Treasures and Family Fun!

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

Our Easter morning started out rainy and gray, but at least we all slept in until 9:30 am! (A family record. Excellent holiday tradition, I think.) Needless to say, we didn’t make it to church for the Easter Egg hunt or the service. But we made do at home and had a fun time. Easter really is a great holiday for the kiddos…

We started with an egg hunt in the living room while still in our pajamas. It was loads of fun – definitely an activity with the toddler in mind.

Treasures everywhere!

Then we had breakfast, prepared food for the day’s feast (roasted potatoes, fruit salad and homemade strawberry ice cream. Yum.) Then we all got dressed an headed off to Aunt Pamela’s house for an Easter feast.

Adding dandelions to the basket.

Checking out the collection.

Loving Aunt Pamela’s decor – Ryan found a pint-sized friend (sort of).

Just having fun.

Enjoying the sun and the flowers.

Daddy and Ryan reading at the end of a long and fun day.

Reading the zoo magazine and planning our next adventure.

A great day was had by all, and we are looking forward to next year’s festivities. I think they’ll just keep getting better and better! If I can get the garden back in order, then I think a spring garden party will be just the thing… anyone want to help weed or mend the fence???

Spring is definitely here!
