Day 111 – Happy Easter 2019

Only managed to a get a few photos of the madness, but it was a good day! Of course, Cadence was up at the crack of dawn itching to get outside and hunt eggs. Henry finally rolled out of bed at 8:30 and was immediately on edge when the eggs he worked so hard coloring were gone.

“Hey!” he hollered. “That Easter Bunny stole my eggs! I gonna hit him!” Then he ran to the window to see if he could catch the thieving bunny in the act while Stevie and I cracked up and explained to him that, no, the bunny didn’t steal the eggs, he just hid them…like a joke.

Henry was not impressed, but was excited once we got outside and starting hunting.

Cadence ran around the yard so fast, I barely got a photo of her, but I did manage to wrangle both kids on the step for a quick minute to snap what may be my favorite photo ever.

Notice the creeper in the window behind the kids…

Electra was as irritated as Henry that she didn’t get a chance to catch that bunny and eat any of the hard-boiled eggs. Sorry dog, maybe next year.

Had some family time, a delicious brunch, another egg hunt at Grandma and Papa’s house, and then headed back home to soak up the last few hours of the weekend.

And yeah, Henry was still threatening to hit that bunny if any of his eggs went missing.

Happy Easter all!

Just A Few More Easter Photos

Just had to post a few more to finish up the set. We’ve got the egg-dyeing festivities…

Cadence and Daddy making goofy faces…

A try at a family photo. But, oh wait, where’s Electra?

And here’s what happens when you try to get an uncoordinated hound dog up on a porch swing…

Cadence woke up Easter morning, and the first sounds we heard through the baby monitor were, “Bunny? Bunny? Hide eggs? He’s here! Bunny! Eggs!” So, we hopped out of bed, got her dressed and headed downstairs to investigate. By the back door, we found our empty egg carton, and Cadence was hot on the trail…

And here’s the little drama queen doing her best to squeeze out a tear when we headed back inside and she thought the fun was over.

But as soon as she found out that we get to open and peel all the eggs, she was happy as a clam again and ready to help Daddy…

Luckily, she managed to eat a couple hard boiled eggs and drink some milk before she discovered the candy in her basket…

But all bets were off when she found a Cadbury Egg. Looks like she inherited her parents’ Cadbury Egg addiction. First bite = heaven!

And we wrapped up the day in a chocolate coma, watching movies and baseball and playing with some new toys.

It was definitely a Happy Easter! 🙂
