Happy Easter (I will finish vacation posts tomorrow)

We had a lot of fun today. We are trying to start some new family traditions (we both have brought some traditions from our families and want to add some of our own to the mix) and have decided that on holidays we go out to eat and then go to a family movie. The one problem that we have with this is that one of my children hates to go to the movies. I know, he must not be mine. Maybe there was a mix up at the hospital? Adam and I have discussed this and figure that he looks too much like Lewis to not be mine, but the question remains: How can he be my child and hate going to the movies? (Including today I have gone to 5 movies in 5 days. Now that is what I call a good week!)

So we started the day waking up to the stuff that the Easter Bunny brought. It was slight this year but the kids got some candy, the movie Ponyo (my favorite NOT!!!!) and basketballs from the Easter Bunny (wink wink) and Lewis and I got them a basketball hoop for the driveway. We were unable to set up the hoop because of this:

Yes, snow. I left Santa Barbara yesterday in wonderful sunny weather and came home to this white stuff. Not my ideal Easter morning for sure. Because of the snow we were unable to have an egg hunt this year and Abigail is not happy at all about that. Oh well. Maybe we can do a little one tomorrow since we have no school. :)

Once we got all ready for the day we left to go to Gardener Village for brunch. We took some pictures and had a good time. After brunch we went to see How to Train Your Dragon. 5 out of 6 of us loved the movie. Any guesses as to who did not like it?

After the movie Abigail, Haley and I went and "egged" my brother's house where the rest of my family was eating dinner. It was very funny. The eggs were confetti eggs and the girls giggled and had a great time while Adam took our pictures. Abi was so worried that we might get recognized and get arrested! She is so funny!!

After the "egging" we stayed and visited for a few minutes and headed back home to get ready for bed and eat dinner. After the kids ate Lewis and I went to see another movie! We went and saw Titans. I liked it. It was by no means AMAZING but I liked it. Plus to have a little date with Lewis after being gone was very nice.

Happy Easter. I hope you all had a great day too! I will leave you with some out takes from the photo shoot at Gardner Village today. Notice all of the snow in the background but we are in short sleeves because it was already getting warm.
