Happy Easter

Happy Easter! We had a really nice one, and enjoyed a lovely sunny spring day filled with lots of fun traditional activities and family time.The day began with ER coming downstairs excitedly to follow an egg trail left by the Easter bunny, to her basket of goodies. This year she knew exactly what to do when she spied eggs all around the house.She also got a treat basket from us, along with an new art easel. She was so excited to when Daddy brought this out.We went over to Grandma Norma's house in the afternoon and my family joined us there too. It was so nice to have both sides of the family together so ER could see everyone. She got even more Easter goodies from them, and loves it all. She can't wait to start growing with her new planter set from Grandma Norma, and she loves hugging the spotted chicken my mom aka Grammy knitted her.Since it was so nice outside, ER got to go on an egg hunt in Grandma's backyard. It's so much fun to have a little one to enjoy the holiday with, even the neighbors came outside to watch her collect all the treats the Easter bunny had left for her.What a rare treat, a family photo OUTSIDE on Easter in Michigan. Here we are with Brad's mother Norma.She has finally mastered opening the plastic eggs, how fun to find lots of marshmallow eggs, chocolate, and coins inside!I couldn't leave my family out of the Easter post, here we are with my Dad, brother, and Mom. We all enjoyed the traditional dinner of my childhood which MUST include ham and cheesy potatoes plus lots of desserts. It was a beautiful day spent with family, the best kind of days!

ER looked so pretty! We also did egg collecting at our house and at Jason's parents house.

It is so nice that your parents can get together like that at each others house. Mine and his...not so much. I guess we can't have them all.

Sounds like a wonderful Easter!! So glad you got to enjoy some sunshine on this special day. We had rain...of course, it's Oregon, so that makes sense! :)

Beautiful Easter dress! I loved seeing my daughter twirl around and get so excited about her "dancing shoes".
