Easter Weekend

We started off our Easter weekend with a somewhat lazy Saturday.  We woke up and got donuts for breakfast and then headed to run a few errands.  We thought it felt somewhat nice out so we took a pizza to the park to eat a picnic and let the kids play a little but it was a little more windy and cold then we we thought.  After we got home Grandma and Grandpa stopped by with Uncle Bone and Uncle Pete!  The kids were super excited and Gabe got to show off some of his baseball skills(I really should get a picture of that) Ty even showed off his batting stance(again really need to get a picture) Pete brought the boys each a cute t-shirt(actually future Aunt Kim got them, thanks Kim!) We attempted to get a picture of them together, in case you can't quite make out the words on the shirts they say "I'm a Cyclone, Just like my Uncle"  Ty had fallen down the slide and skinned up his elbow which is why he's got the red Lightning McQueen icepack.

After they left it was nap time for Callie and the kids watched baseball with Daddy.  That evening we went over to my parents house for dinner.  Grandpa and Grandma had Easter basket for each of the kids and they were able to find them shortly after we got there.  The boys each had a veggietales watch in their basket and they each had a pair of sunglasses.

After we found the baskets we headed outside to find some eggs while our burgers were on the grill.

Can you guess whose basket is whose?

The next morning we got up and ready for church.  I attempted a few picture of them in their Easter outfits, we got a few cute ones:)

After church we headed out to Andrea and Alans for dinner with their family and Grandpa Matt and Grandma Nancy.  After lunch the kids got to have an easter egg hunt and they each had 5 color coded eggs to find.

 Callie doesn't quite get the whole find Easter eggs concept quite yet, she would just wander around a little and if she came across one she may or may not pick it up.  She was more interested in the animals, like the cat, she would screech with delight when she saw it but then the minute she got close to it she would screech in fear.  Crazy girl.

After they found their eggs we went to see the goats and chickens.

They also had a few baby ducks that the kids were able to pet.

Before heading back in the house for dessert we attempted to get a picture with all the kiddos together, I think it's impossible to get them to all look at the camera at the same time but these aren't too bad.

We had a great Easter weekend with family but most of all praising God for his Son who is no longer dead but risen.
" Jesus Paid it all.  All to Him I owe.  Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow!"
