Our Celebration

We had a nice Easter weekend. Saturday we celebrated with Mr. Dunbar's family. One of his cousins has a "farm" about an hour away. (I'm not sure if it is technically a farm. By this city girl's definition it is; lots of animals, land, barn and dirt equates to farm for me.) We had a nice lunch and the boys got to pet the horses, check out a chicken coop, and throw rocks across field with thier cousins till they were exhausted. It was a bit chilly, well really chilly, and my camera battery was dead so unfortunately there are no pictures to post of Saturday. Super bummed on that!! But it is always so much fun to hang out with Mr. Dunbar's family and catch up with family that we don't get to see very often.

Sunday morning we went to church and then headed over to my parent's house for our annual Easter breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt. The Easter Bunny always visits Grandma and Papa's house and the boys made out with tons of stuff: clothes, snacks, toys, new baseball gloves and balls, toiletry items, and super cool shoes. And of course Monkey tore into the baskets the second they walked in the door I didn't even have a chance to grab the camera. (Note to self: Mom enters the house first on holidays.) It was a smaller celebration than usual but we made the best of it and the boys had a blast finding all of the eggs.
Even Bogie figured out how to pick up the eggs and drop them into the basket.
The eggs at Grandma and Papa's house are only filled with coins, so the baskets got pretty heavy, Monkey was dragging his around. He and Papa counted all of his money and watched TV on grandma's phone afterward, then he played baseball with Grandma.
Only picture of me on the holiday.
By the early afternoon the boys were wiped out.
Oh and the best part, the Easter Bunny always visits the adults too! Don't you want to know what we got?
Any guesses?
Can't reveal yet, my brother's haven't gotten theirs. C'mon take a shot at it though...
What do you think?
Thanks Mom and Dad!

How did you compile the 4 pictures into 1?

What cute pictures. I'm usually only in one photo (if that many!) because I'm the one behind the camera, too. :) Glad you had a great Easter!

You did a good job capturing the day.

Did the Easter bunny leave you a DSLR??
