Hoppy Easter

I forgot to take pictures of the kids all dressed up for church. Joshua was looking exceptionally handsome in a new button down shirt. The kids woke up this morning to find their little baskets waiting for them on the kitchen table. Their baskets each have their name embroidered on the liner, so it was easy to see which basket belonged to which child.

Keith had duty today over in Clearwater, so it was just me and the kids this morning. We went over to Grandma and Grandpa's house for lunch and other fun festivities today. Grandma had set up a craft for the kids when we first got there. The kids used markers to color some hard boiled eggs.
While they were coloring, I went outside to help Grandpa hide some Easter Eggs. Then the race was on to find them!



The kids had a great time racing all over the yard to find the eggs. After they checked out their loot, they were off to go find their Easter Bags.



After a yummy lunch and getting some goodies, the kids played outside with Grandma and Grandpa while I took a little nap in the hammock.


We came back to the house by around 3pm so that we could get our usual Sunday evening chores done.


Daniel got some coins in some of the eggs he found today. He put them in his box for the March of Dimes campaign at his preschool. He is so funny to watch, he puts one coin in - shakes the box - adds a coin - shakes the box - adds another coin - shakes the box, and this goes on until he's out of coins.
