Easter Weekend

Easter weekend was quite the eventful one! Friday night, Aubrey got her ears pierced and we colored eggs and sent the girls off to bed. I woke up around 3:00am and could not fall back asleep.

Coffee mug in hand, I went on the computer. It was so nice to be able to surf the 'net without a kid hanging on to my leg, or worrying about taking a call at work, since my job is 100% computer work. I found a fun sounding Egg Hunt in a town about 20 minutes north of us that I decided we would go to later while Keith was at work. I set my alarm and forced myself to go to sleep so I wouldn't be a zombie when the kids woke up demanding waffles.

Aubrey was so excited to learn we were going on an egg hunt. I'm sure Addison was thrilled too. We got ready and off we went!

They had it set into age groups, which I thought was great. The 2-3 year olds (and Addie) went first. What a sight. I've never seen kids (and parents) run so fast. We managed to get a few.

Then it was Aubrey's age group, which was surprisingly a lot more calm. She got the maximum amount of 6 eggs allowed and was thrilled. She even got one with a piece of paper inside, which meant she got to go and pick a special prize (which was an Ariel pez despenser!)

Next on the agenda was a photo op with the Easter bunny. Addison was soooooooooo excited, can't you tell?

Nothing a cookie in the car can't fix! 

Later that night, we planted some jelly beans outside so the Easter bunny could ~make the magic happen~ overnight. The girls woke up and they were not disappointed!

The Easter bunny turned the jellybeans into lollipops! 

We went to my sister's for dinner. She was amazing and made it extra early so I could eat before having to go to work. After I went in, Keith took the girls to his dad's house so they could spend some time with Grammy & Grampy. 

Easter with two kids is seriously so much fun. Last year Addie was just a month old, so it obviously was not interesting to her at all. 

See? Not amused. I wish this picture wasn't so blurry. It's one of my favorites of them. 

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
