We had a wonderful Easter weekend with Mimi! We played on Friday night and woke up Saturday to do a little shopping. Mimi wanted to let the boys to pick out something that they wanted for Easter. After having some lunch, we came home for naps. Then it was time to dye eggs. They were both so into it! Given their attention spans, I was a little surprised but it was more fun this year than any year in the past!

While we cleaned up from our egg dying activity, Daddy hid eggs for a backyard egg hunt.
Look at all of my eggs!
Caden really wasn't into it so Mommy helped
Ethan and Mimi
Ethan was all over the yard!
When we were finished, he felt bad because he had
so many more than brother, so he shared. Sweetness!! :-)
This was the most fun Caden had during the egg hunt! When we were finished and he gave all of his eggs back to Ethan, Caden turned his basket upside down and put it on top of his head. He thought he had done the most hilarious thing ever and all you could hear were his little giggles coming out from under the basket while he walked around the yard!
Then he wanted to swing...please pardon the unrolled hose
After numerous attempts at a posed picture,
this is one of the best we ended up with
After our egg hunt and a little playtime, we came back inside for Easter dinner. We decided to have it Saturday night instead of on Sunday since Mimi had to leave after church. Everyone ate so well at dinner that we decided to go to Sweet Monkey for some yummy frozen yogurt for dessert!
Easter Sunday came and the boys found that the Easter Bunny left them some treats!
Love sweet Caden's cheese face!
Ethan was very excited about his VeggieTale's watch!
After checking out their Easter baskets, we had breakfast and got ready for church. Before we left, the boys got some great pictures with Mimi in their Easter outfits.
And more attempts at a posed picture...please tell me that eventually it gets easier!
