Easter Weekend

Last Saturday, we were taking the boys to Gran Gran's house for Doug's family's Easter. So, I dressed them in cute, little matching outfits that were somewhat "Eastery", but that they could where in the hot weather.

Since they looked cute, I attempted to take a few picture before we left.

Barrett was doing his goofy smile in most the pictures, and Fisher just wanted to go. (Notice Fisher is pointing, as usual, in the second picture.)

Once we were at Gran Gran's the boys loved playing with all their cousins. After we ate, Barrett went down for his nap, and Fisher enjoyed playing outside.

Fisher loved playing on Will's tractor. He wouldn't even look at me for a picture. He was too busy laughing and making tractor sounds.

Once Barrett woke up from his nap, it was time to have another egg hunt.

Just like at the church egg hunt, Fisher just liked carrying the eggs around.

Barrett ran around as best he could to find eggs, but his older cousins were a lot faster than he was. With Nana's help, he was able to get his basket filled up too.

After the hunt was over, it was time for Fisher's nap, and Barrett played outside. Barrett decided he wanted to dye eggs like the older kids had done earlier, so I stripped him down and let him play.

Not only did he make his eggs nice and colorful, but his hand was pretty and green too.

By the time we headed home on Saturday night, both boys were exhausted. Barrett pretty much went straight to sleep, but Fisher fought me for a couple of hours. I think he was so tired he couldn't even sleep. By 11:00, he FINALLY passed out.

On Easter morning, Barrett was so excited the Easter bunny had come and left him candy, a bunny, and a new tay-toe head. He was also excited about Fisher's duck.

It didn't take long for him to realize that the empty plastic eggs he left for the bunny were now hidden around the house.

Once he picked one up, he was really happy to find quarters in it.

He was so happy, that he hugged the egg saying, "I love these eggs."

Fisher even manged to find one of them.

Later in the day, we all headed down to the beach for Easter with my family. Of course, the warm weather from Saturday was gone, and Barrett was disappointed to not be able to swim in the ocean. Once he got over the disappointment, he had a blast playing with his cousins there.

Overall, the weekend was so much fun but I am exhasuted. Holidays were a lot more relaxing before I had kids!

They are both getting so big. I love their outfits and that green hand is great! Does he want to come help me dye yarn? I bet it would be interesting to see what he would come up with! Unfortunately, the dye I use isn't kid friendly!
Have you hit the outlet mall and did you see the crowd there today? OMG! They were parking on the dirt and it was 6 rows deep when we drove by.
