I hope your Easter started out as great as ours! I really appreciate taking pictures like this…you know the ones that will come back to haunt them in future years! I can’t tell you how many pictures I have of me like this at this age!
Our Easter morning started with our earliest riser, Liv. She got Zack up & they went & found their baskets before the Easter bunnies were even out of bed or aware that they were up. Little butts. Little did they know the Easter bunny was up until all hours. Oh well. We let them enjoy their baskets until Max woke up on his own about 45 minutes later.
I tried to avoid the candy this year & it was a miserable fail. With a huge neighborhood egg hunt the day prior & two hunts the day of…well we were all more than a little wired.
Our Easter baskets typically consist of things my kids need anyway. I’m not a big fan of gifts for the sake of gifts, especially on such a religious holiday. So they all got their Easter outfits, bathing suits, goggles & a new pair of shoes…or two.
Zack was really fun this year & I’m glad that Scot insisted we have our own egg hunt because he was all over it. And then proceeded to insist that we have an egg toss. At the neighborhood celebration Zack & I did the egg toss & did pretty good. At breakfast on Easter morning though he threw down & said that he probably would have won with dad. Those are fighting words at my house. So he had to prove it. For the record, I’m pretty sure I was his better partner! haha.
Max won for best dressed in my house. I’m not sure what it was, but it was the shoes. I had to hold back from just eating him he looked so delicious.
They all cleaned up pretty nice & I wish I could show you the whole series of the pictures I took of all three. Each one’s personality is so vivid.
He was pretty much magic. Every egg was a surprise. I wish I could bottle him up.
He was all about the competition. Climbing trees in search of the ‘golden’ egg. Not this year…
Love the time we are able to take to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior & the people I get to celebrate it with.
