So for our Easter weekend of festivities, we colored eggs on Friday the boys had so much fun with it and wished we had more than a dozen eggs to color. But with us not really using them afterwards I figured a dozen was plenty.
Saturday we headed down to mom's house for the annual Easter Egg Hunt that she has every year. She use to do this for all of us kids and finally we said no more when we were all in our late twenties. So she loves to do this for the grand kids. She invites a bunch of kids from her neighborhood so that it isn't just Ashton and Noah. The boys had so much fun running around and collecting eggs, my only complaint was how cold it was, it is really to much to ask for a warm Easter?
After the egg hunt we had lunch and let the kids all run around the backyard and the adults got to visit (I can only hope that one day I can have a nice fenced in yard that I can send my children in and let them play and not worry about them getting out. I am dreaming I know, but still it would be nice) It was a holiday weekend so of course Jason was sick, he had been under the weather since Tuesday so it put a little damper on things for him.
This is what happens when Jason has control of the camera, he takes pics like this. Actually this one was at least publishable, the other ones he took will not ever see the light of day if I thought I could delete them without getting in trouble I would!!
The look on Noah's face is classic Noah, he scrunches up his face like this all the time.
Jason made a new friend, the neighbors brought over their two little dogs and this one I think was tired of the kids chasing her so she jumped up in Jason's lap for a minute of peace.
Ashton wanted to stay at grandma's house and at first I didn't want him to stay but the more I thought about it I realized that a time will come when he won't want to stay at grandma's house all the time so I am going to let him while he wants to. We headed home with Noah and had a nice and quiet evening with just Noah, I know he was missing Ashton though he kept asking for him.
Noah woke up and found his basket and had fun playing till we headed back down to mom's Sunday for Easter dinner, it was nice to visit and be with family like always.
The Easter bunny found Ashton at grandma's house, which he totally loved and was pretty excited about.
After dinner we did the egg bashing which as usual was awesome, Ashton almost won again this year but Tyson beat him out in the final heat.
Later grandma let the boys rolls the eggs down the hill, which ended up in them throwing the eggs down the hill, it was so funny to watch them. The things grandma lets them get away with.
We tried to get a family picture but as per usual with these boys it didn't work out so well, oh well I am sure one day I will look back and think that it was so cute.
