Easter Weekend

Barrett's loved his first Easter! Ok, he had no clue that it was Easter, but he loved being held all weekend long.

On Saturday, we went to one of Doug's grandma's houses. His cousins were there with their kids, so Barrett had lots of entertainment. We tried to get a picture of all four kids, but it was impossible for them all to look at a camera at the same time especially when they were all distracted with eggs. We tried for a while, but we decided that what we had would have to do. Here is one of the pictures I had.

Barrett didn't get into the egg hunt we had, but he sure liked the plastic eggs. His second cousins (if that is what they are!) were more than happy to give him eggs to play with.

On Sunday, we went to Doug's other Grandparents. Doug's Grandpa is too cute, and Barrett LOVES him. Grandpa will get on the floor and talk with Barrett. Doug, Doug's dad, and I went to the pond to fish, and apparently Barrett talked to Grandpa the entire time we were gone. Dorothy swears Barrett makes her dad 40 years younger.

The big event of the weekend came on Sunday evening. Grandma was waving to Barrett and he waved back! She said, "Oh, he's waving?" I told her no, but when she waved to him again, he waved back. It is too cute. I think Grandma was really happy to get to see a first, and Barrett is thrilled with his new trick. When we got home, he would wave to Doug, so I got it on video too.

Yesterday at the grocery store, Barrett was waving to everyone we passed. He was laughing when they would wave back. I just can't get over how cute it is to watch him think about making his hand wave. I know soon it will be easy for him to do, so I am enjoying watching him figure it all out.

I hope all of you had a wonderful, relaxing Easter.
