Easter 2013



An Easter weekend play-by-play:

Friday:

Cousins...





An egg hunt...







Lots of candy...








Grandma Alda's birthday...








Dying eggs...





Basketball outside in the dark...

Saturday:

Brandon's first swimming lesson. He did great and did everything the teacher asked... except for putting his nose in the water...

Jaden's swimming lesson. He's doing well enough that his teacher said he could probably have been placed in the next level up.

New tennis shoes for Jaden... he's pretty proud of them.

We surprised the boys with a two-day vacation to Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells in two weeks. We unveiled the surprise by showing them this video:



We made a paper chain vacation countdown...

The final UNI basketball game of the season. The Panthers lost in a heartbreaker, and Jaden is bummed that Anthony James is graduating.

Sunday:

The Bunny came. And left lots of candy, cookies, books, chalk, bubbles, Spiderman bubble bath, bath crayons, a garden shovel and a critter shack for summer bug collecting.







 

The Easter Bunny even remembered Lucy and brought her some of her favorite mice toys...



Church and a chocolate egg hunt to follow...











Happy Easter... here's to some warmer temperatures in our near future!

 
...and two weeks until our waterpark adventure! I had to remind them of this to even get them to smile at this point...
 
 
 
 
...we'll be counting the paper rings until then!
