the easter bunny did not disappoint again this year. big hits in the baskets....bandaids (yes, bandaids) and underwear. who needs chocolate bunnies and jellybeans. of course we had a few of those things too....but the easter bunny knows that grandmas and grandpas are great at sending the kids home with buckets full of candy. :) easter baskets were just the start of a busy easter sunday. greta was sweet enough to keep reminding us that, "easter's not just about bunnies and candy".
papa always gets to head up the task of dyeing easter eggs. i love how they look, but to be honest i don't have the patience for the dyeing. with the most patient papa on the planet, these kids have the perfect partner for this job.
we enjoyed Good Friday with our friends the Nawroths. First, we had them over for a playdate and easter egg lunch. Janet and I filled plastic eggs with lunch food (cheese, crackers, fruit, nuts, etc) and then hid the eggs for the kids to find. it was super fun! the kids really enjoyed finding their lunch and thought it was hilarious that they were eating out of eggs (or from a big pile on the table) rather than a plate. later in the day, we met up with the Nawroths again at Holy Cross Church in Mt Adams for their Good Friday fish fry. this has become a tradition for our families the past few years (we took greta and ella when they were just 5/6 months old and have gone every year since) and i hope it continues each year!
