Happy Easter!

First of all, as you can see, we are not morning people! The kids got up at 8:00 and they still had to wake Adam, Lewis, and myself up.

The kids had eggs to find in the yard. Here is the loot from the bunny:
Once we got up, and I made french toast for everyone, we were all in better moods. We put on our pretty clothes and headed over to my dad's house for Easter lunch. We decided to do a fun egg hunt for the kids. The real reason that I took the time, effort, and money to do an egg hunt at my dad's house was because of Abi. On Monday Abi and Haley missed the egg hunt for our neighborhood because of my root canal. Haley was alright with it but Abi was so sad. She does not remember doing an egg hunt before. (Last year we went to the neighborhood hunt and my kids got 0 eggs. The rules were 12 eggs per kid and then the rest would be up for grabs after everyone had their 12. Well my kids got none and others got 40 or more. And the people in charge did not care. So after I supplied 48 eggs for the hunt we took 0 home.) Because I felt so bad for her I promised to take her to the Thanksgiving Point Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday. Lewis and I took her and got in line about an hour before her egg hunt was supposed to start. We stood in line for 30 minutes, and NEVER moved. It was crazy. There was like one entrance for 10,000 people. So finally we just left. Abi was devastated. I promised her a toy at Target, a treat, anything to get out of that line. So I felt bad that she missed two egg hunts because of me. Anyway, I loaded like 100 eggs and Lewis and Adam hid them in my dad's backyard. Finally Abi got her egg hunt.

After the egg hunt my dad gave each of the kids a chocolate bunny. But to get the bunny they had to sit nice for a picture. This is the crazy one, it was the best :)

Happy Easter. Hope you had a great day with your loved ones... or at least got some chocolate.
