Easter 2017...

Finishing up on reflecting back on our Spring Break week...

On Sunday, we woke up to find that we had a visitor during the night.  Mr. Easter Bunny must have hopped on by to drop off a few goodies for the kids.



Mommy Bunny and Mimi Bunny both spotted the Shopkins bathing suit at Costco!

The Easter bunny must have heard the rumor that Grant was in search of teeth.  He fulfilled his wish - 3 teeth in the course of 8 days.  #2 tooth popped out a few hours after this picture was taken and #3 arrived a few days later.  The poor kid has had his hand in his mouth since Christmas, so we're just happy to see that he actually has real teeth in there.





I love this next picture.  He just LOVES her...




2017 will forever be known as the Year of the Shopkin in our house.  I'm still not sure I understand what they are or what they do, but I have an entire army of them living in my house.







Grant was more interested in our plastic Easter placemats vs his actual Easter basket...







What do you do when you buy a gigantic spiral ham from Costco for Easter???  Invite over the neighbor friends for dinner, organize an Easter egg hunt and call it a day!  With temps expected to be near 90 for the day, this was an outdoorsy Easter.

Georgia helped with me with the decor...





One of our neighbors "rented" chicks for the week from a neighborhood farm. They were so soft!



Grant checking out the chicks

Between the chicks and our baby bunnies, it was a regular ole petting zoo at our house that day!  Except Georgia was TERRIFIED of holding the chicks because Nick mentioned that they had "sharp claws."



Nothing says Easter like t-shirts and shorts!  Felt more like the 4th of July...




Luckily, the menu for the day did not include rabbit or chicken!




Great spread for pulling it all together in just a few days time!



Georgia had a blast helping me with our desserts.













After dinner, the Dads hid 50 eggs out back in the dry pond.  It took the kids approximately 33 seconds to find them all!












With all the plastic eggs found, Mimi whipped out another fun game... confetti eggs!







Back to work/school and onto wrapping up all the plans for Georgia's big birthday week...
