That night, the bunny visited us & hid a bunch of those carefully decorated beauties out in our back yard… along with about a bajillion other candy-filled eggs. Ardynn and I woke up to baskets full of goodies & were ready to hit the lawn running after some breakfast with the rest of our family. It took us a while & we even took a few breaks, but we eventually picked up all of the eggs that were hidden back there. whew!
After our first hunt on Saturday, we headed out to Uncle Ray & Aunt Joyce’s for their annual Easter lunch. This year, Uncle Brandon, provided the grub by doing a big shrimp boil (quite possible my favorite food on the planet). Unfortunately, my mom somehow did not manage to take the camera out there, so there are no photos of the family fun. That afternoon, we went over to the Cashes' house (Hadley & Judson’s grandparents) for a fun Easter party & yet ANOTHER egg hunt! We had a fantastic time with our friends… they had wonderful food & lots of great activities for us little ones!
Sunday morning, Ardynn & I woke up and got ourselves all dolled up in the dresses that mommy & Gingi made for us. I must say – we looked awfully cute in our almost matching springy dresses! We went to church & Sunday School…. and guess what we all did during Sunday School!?!? That’s right… another egg hunt! By this time… I was an old pro…. and a tired pro :o) We took a few quick photos on our front porch before heading out for Abilene. Each year, we go to Grandma & Grandpa’s house in Abilene for an Easter celebration with Gingi’s family. It always proves to be a blast… we eat lots of goodies… play with all of our cousins… do a big egg toss… smash confetti eggs on each other… and of course - - - HUNT EGGS!! Unfortunately, this year, most of the activities were curtailed, because of a MAJOR hail storm! You’ll see the photos of the golfball+ sized hail that was falling from the sky for over an hour. Thanks be to our God for that rain, as Abilene needed it as badly as we do here in San Angelo!!! Although a we bit disappointed about not being able to hunt for the 15th time this year, I think I will survive :o)
I cannot go on and on blabbing about our Easter weekend without mentioning that our little Bean decided to come a 2-footed pedestrian like the rest of us! She has been really close to taking off as a solo walker for a while now (as I have noted in my p osts) but just this past week – she decided that walking really is an acceptable mode of transportation. She is walking all over the place, so it will be easy to get a video of her showing off her skills…. stay tuned for one soon!
It was a busy, busy, BUSY Easter weekend…. not one for weenies…. but we managed to make lots of good memories & take lots of good pictures! Thank You, Jesus, for a fresh new start each Easter!!
