Happy Easter!

We had a great Easter.  The weather was perfect in St. Louis that weekend, so we got to spend a lot of time outside.  Friday night we got to dye Easter eggs with our neighbors.  Amazingly, there were no major spills or incidents - not that it would've mattered since we strategically did it outside!  (By the way, I promise we didn't leave Charlie at home; he wasn't interested in dying eggs and spent most of the evening across the street shooting hoops.

We hosted my mom's family on Saturday and had a nice evening.  The boys got to play some soccer with my cousin Bryan, which made their night of course.  We closed off the night with a fire in the fire pit.  Love it!

When we put Charlie to bed he was a little freaked out about the Easter Bunny coming to our house.  I finally told him I'd hang a sign on his door that told the Easter Bunny not to go in his room, after which he rolled over and went immediately to sleep.  I'm telling you, this child is still traumatized by the Fredbird experience.
Sunday morning we had a small egg hunt at our house - the boys loved it!  If you can only watch one video, I recommend #2 - I love watching them get so excited about something as simple as socks!
After we were finished at our house, we headed up to the Minchers' house for our annual neighbor Easter egg hunt.  This is the third year we've done it.  The first year it was just us, the Ashers and the Minchers.  Last year we added the Scallys.  And this year, we know a LOT more of our neighbors.  I think there were a total of 18 kids there!  It was so fun for the kids.  The parents brought 20 eggs per child and all the dads "hid" the eggs behind the Minchers' house.  It's so funny watching the little guys like Charlie and his peers taking their time inspecting each egg they found vs the bigger kids who made a mad dash scooping up as many eggs as they could find.  Everyone had a fun morning - hopefully our tradition will continue for years to come!!

This video isn't too exciting, but at least shows how many kids were there!
In the evening we celebrated with the Claytons.  Grandma Clayton gave each of the kids a new beach towel and goggles.  To say they were a hit would be an understatement.

What a great weekend!!
