The hunters: Meener babeener, Elvis, Swirlvester, J-dog.
He fit so perfectly in this basket I couldn't resist. You can kind of see his swirly cow-lick in this picture. Close- up shots to come.
Mia's first Easter egg hunt.. It is so fun to see her have these "first" experiences. She played with some eggs, but wasn't too concerned about gathering. Next year she should be running from egg to egg.
Or maybe she'll just cry because we chose to do the hunt during nap time.
Mia, wanted to swing... much more than she wanted to hunt for eggs.
Yes, yes... she is wearing her swim suit. This girls marches to the beat of her OWN drum- it's a crazy drum, but it's hers. In her defense it was a really warm day (again, this wasn't on the actual date). She got the pool out and spent the day in her swim suit... with her "lulu" in tow.
Jense is all business when there is a task at hand. He was an egg hunting machine, and only ran into one obstacle... his height.
But, that didn't stop him.
A post wouldn't be complete with out one of Ellie's signature poses! This pose is one of the more toned down ones from all of the Easter pictures. Boonie, she LOVES the swimsuit you gave her! Hunting eggs is one of many yellow swim suit festivities. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you might remember pumpkin carving- swim suit edition.
After the hunt, the kids wanted to race. John let Ellie have a head start a few times, but then took it away when she proved to be an intense competitor. Their racing faces were cracking me up!
There he is again! Love this kid! He is the sweetest sweet baby. I forgot how much newborns sleep!! It is a holiday around here when he opens his eyes. Things are going so great- he is a champion nurser and a wonder sleeper! I am not eating any dairy which I believe contributes to the happy tummy.. it is a proven technique with my other kiddos. It's worth it for sure, even with John torturing me by eating ice cream every night!
