The first thing on our agenda was an early morning visit from the Easter bunny. Harper and Jack weren't too sure what to think about their Easter baskets, but they were quick to check out their loot when I started to unpack their baskets. Jack was pretty excited about his new book, and Harper was thrilled with the Curious George doll.
Lucky for us, the kids both took a good nap at Mom and Dad's and woke up ready for family pictures and lunch:
After lunch, we all gathered outside for an Easter egg hunt. I loved hunting Easter eggs with my sister and my brother in my Granny and Paw-Paw's backyard; the eggs were always filled with candy or loose change, and there seemed to be so many eggs! As an adult, this hunt has changed a little bit: my sister and I were charged with hiding eggs and watching our kiddos search the backyard. I was so proud of Jack and Harper because, despite being at a huge deficit, both of the kids found an egg. They were legit finds too- Kerry's kids took off to the back of the yard, and my little ones made a beeline for the lowest and closest eggs they could find :)
After the egg hunt, we spent the rest of the afternoon playing whiffle ball, chatting, watching babies and kids run through the house, eating angel food cake and banana pudding, and enjoying our time together.
I sat in my parents' kitchen trying to remember last Easter, and thinking that we are so blessed and so lucky to have come so far. Here's a shot from last year to help you remember what Harper and Jack looked like then. Enjoy!
