Happy Easter!

Easter is such a meaningful day. He is Risen!!  We were happy that my parents could come in town to celebrate with us. We started the day with an amazing church service that included some amazing praise and worship. Then we went home and worked on food for lunch while Adalyn took a nap and then opened her baskets. (Adalyn had way too many baskets thanks to the grandparents and us! But it was fun.)

Just up from her nap. Sleepy face.
She got some toys to use outdoors... a ball, sidewalk chalk and bubbles!
Jelly beans and M&M's are the best! When she figured out that there were treats in her plastic eggs, IT was ON! Those chipmunk cheeks were stuffed!
More candy in her cheeks with some dress up jewelry on! Pretty princess!
My loves.

We went to Billie and Derek's house for a delicious lunch and an egg hunt for the kids. Of course we needed to take advantage of some photo opps with the kids.

Amazing to think Adalyn was Emalyn's size last year. Wow!!
All of the "cousins". They were so good for the pictures!
Hunting eggs filled with animal crackers and gold fish. The issue? Adalyn would shake the eggs to see that there was something inside and then instead of putting it in her basket she would open it and shove all of the food in her mouth. She couldn't get the idea of putting all the eggs in her basket to eat later. It was funny!
 Billie and Derek have a beautiful yard and it was perfect for an egg hunt!
So sweet. Daddy and daughter.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and remembered the true meaning of the day!

Um yeah - her chipmunking skills are insane and it's SO FUNNY. She is so dainty and petite and precious but she can cram some food in those pouches ;). It was such a fun Easter Sunday - glad we all got to spend it together.
