Our Easter Weekend

The chilly weather and wind didn't hold AJ back from the annual neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt Saturday.  
He was on a mission...
Even scoping out the eggs on the playground equipment as he was picking up eggs in the wood chips...
The slide was definitely a more efficient route than the stairs...
and he didn't even lose a single egg on the way down...now that is serious egg hunting skill.
The Easter Bunny brought a Thomas shirt, a new book, a Cars note pad, a dinosaur cup, and a dinosaur bowl...
but nothing could compete with fruit snacks he left in the eggs that he hid Sunday morning...

As we were rushing around to get ready to go to Nana and Papa's our hearts stop hearing one of the worst sounds in the world: the crash of plastic as it falls down a flight of stairs followed by the blood curdling scream of an adventurous toddler.  I guess riding the fire truck down the stairs seemed like a good idea at the time.  Check out the fat lip.
Taking a family picture is much like choreographing a three ring circus these days.  Capturing an exact moment with everyone smiling, looking in the same direction, or all having our eyes open at the same time seems to be impossible...this is the best we could do this year.  
Here is Abby's first Easter dress!  She wasn't exactly thrilled, but momma had fun dressing her up!
She is kind-a smiling in this one...unlike the twenty other pictures I have where she is screaming about the whole dress and tights get-up.
AJ was completely egg-hausted from the weekend festivities!  Notice the camo sweat pants...because wearing the nice Easter outfit mom had set out was just too much to ask of a 2 and half year old...the button up shirt and camo made a nice fashion statement...business causal meets military lounge wear.

That's my nephew! Getting down those stairs a bit faster, camo pants on Easter, and of course hoarding fruit snacks! I can't believe how Abby has grown!

LOVE the rose dress!! I must concur with Abby, though, tights are awful...my middle schoolers didn't know what "nylon pantyhose" were...lucky things! LOL

Love AJ's independent fashion sense...I'm sure his future wife will have her hands full! :)

Are ya'll having spring yet in Colorado? I have a good friend in Denver, & they were still getting snow a week or two ago!
