This was a rather busy weekend for our family… first off… HAPPY EASTER everyone! And in the same breath – Happy Birthday Uncle James! The 30th was my brother’s birthday… so of course yours truly had to get in a call to him and his wife Holly that night… but first… the day of the 30th…
Dressed in their Easter gifts from Gammie
With Nana and Baba settled in for the morning it was finally time to do the yearly dying of the eggs. This year was amazingly… brief. But the results were colourful and pretty.
Getting at it
So pretty on our Easter table
Even Echo got in on the dying… once we took all her clothes off of course!
Ken and Emanuel had some special Daddy/Son time playing PS3.
The evening was the main source of excitement – Grandma and Grandpa Mike were in town for an over nighter on their way to Route 66 and 3 weeks of travels.
So there were presents to check out… And the pool to swim in (they really DO need those lessons this summer!)…
Thank you Tammy and family for the belated Christmas present!
With Mommy… in need of a new suit I think
And then back to the room for snacks…
We were there well past 10… our 3rd late night of the week. Ouch!
In their dresses with their new teddies… one is white, the other off white
Boys and their toys… mini Fat Sheep
I have a series of her in the mirror… they will be in an overflow entry!
Sunday the 31st was Easter Sunday. Another jam packed day of course. First though, with all that tulle and matching dresses and the boys all in plaid it was time for PICTURES!!!
All my babies in a row
Just my girls
With the traditional Easter Hats
And then, back to Grandma and Grandpa Mike’s hotel room for some more cuddle time while we watched tv, visited and played around until 11 am and check out.
All in their Easter duds
Playing with Grandpa Mike’s watch
After check out we went to the nearby McDonalds for lunch. And then it was time to say good bye and see them off on their first leg of their journey – Mall of America.
Two tables of course
Me and my Mommy
We returned home in time for the Johnson family festivities… so pictures with the cousin first…
Then baskets and a wardrobe change for Echo (and eventually Trinity)! The Easter Bunny was generous this year.
Bunny related chaos
With lots to eat there was plenty of room around the table.
And lots of time to play.
Playing in the 3 seasons porch
Our first Easter in Minnesota was a BUSY weekend..,. but an amazing one all the same!
…and best of all we were all together
