Happy Easter!

We kicked Easter weekend off on Thursday by unpacking our baskets and 71 plastic eggs to leave out for Mr. E. Bunny.  We also colored eggs the old fashion way with vinegar, water, and food coloring.  I love letting Logan pick the colors and drop in the correct amount as he counts.  Easton thought it was very fun and wanted to keep smacking the eggs with spoons.  

 Saturday was our church Easter egg hunt.  We spent several hours at church with one of our favorite families.  The boys had a blast finding eggs, meeting the Easter bunny (who Easton LOVED!!), making cookies, playing with chicks, planting seeds, and winning full-sized candy bars in the candy bar walk!

After all of the festivities we gathered together to hear the uplifting message!  Easton stayed with his favorite ladies in the nursery but Logan was in service with us.  Three times during the service he looked up at me and said, "I love you."  Being in our church with my amazing family made my heart feel like it might burst!

We capped off a great night by joining the Burkins for some frozen yogurt fun.  It is so cool to see all of our dudes laughing and playing together!  I can't wait to see all of the fun they have growing up together and what kind of mischief they introduce sweet, innocent Harper to!

Easter morning kicked off at 6:26 with Logan in our bed proclaiming that the Easter bunny had come and left him eggs in his room.  Both eggs he brought with him were filled with coins, which made A LOT of noise as we tried to hold him off with his good friend television!  Easton finally stirred around 7:30 and the hunt was ON!  They loved everything in their baskets and Logan even let his brother get a few eggs!

We headed to Aunt Kathy and Uncle Bob's for lunch.  As always our bellies were filled with yummy food!  After lunch the Easter egg hunt began!  It is one of my favorite family events of the year!  Our boys have so much fun running around and finding eggs filled with goodies.  I think the adults have just as much fun seeing the pure joy that comes with a basket full of plastic eggs!

 We ended the day with burgers and dogs on the grill with Gramma Jan and Poppi.  My heart is full.  I am completely blessed and am beyond thankful!  Happy Easter everyone!
