Last weekend we did Easter and we did it well - despite the less than stellar rainy weather on Sunday. 

On Saturday (which was a beautiful, sunny day), we did Easter with Randy's family at his mom and Aunt's home. We ate lunch, hunted eggs, played, spent time together, and even played some HiHo! Cherry-O and Candy Land.

On Sunday morning, the kids woke up to discover their Easter Goodies

and then proceeded to hunt eggs in our backyard (fortunately, the kids woke up early enough that they were able to hunt eggs before the rain started).

We then changed and got ready to go to church - making a pit-stop at my parents' home on our way to see what the Easter Bunny might have brought them there.

The kids had fun hunting eggs at church (indoors - because at this point it was raining).

After church we went to brunch at Ella's at Carnall Hall

After brunch, we went home and had the kids change clothes so they could go hunt eggs at my parents' house (it was wet and yucky out and I didn't want the kids messing up their Easter clothes).

And that was Easter. Harper was pretty funny with her Easter basket. After hunting eggs, she didn't want to open the plastic eggs and get the candy out. She wanted to keep the eggs in tact and in her basket. It wasn't until much later in the day when we were putting away Easter things that we finally convinced her to open and sort the eggs - and put the eggs away (until next Easter).

Easter party at First School.

Last Wednesday, there was an Easter Party at Harper's school. Hayden had a dentist appointment that morning, so I let him play hooky for an extra 1.5 hours and attend the party with me (Harper wanted him to come and he did too). 

The party was lots of fun and I know that both the kids were glad each other was there.
