Easter Weekend- in Pictures

We left Friday night after work for Davenport. Saturday morning, the kids got a bath at Great Aunt Brenda and Uncle Ron's house.  Needless to say, I had fun with her hair.

Annaliese enjoying the rocks in their backyard. 

Annaliese just posed on the rocks, but Ian enjoyed leaping from one to another. 

Saturday afternoon was my grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary.  I thought Annaliese wouldn't get a nap, but I was wrong. Slept in Darrin's lap for about two hours.

I wanted a picture with the kids and their great-grandparents, but Annaliese wouldn't go unless she was in Grandpa's arms.

The kids slept together on a mattress on their floor. First time Annaliese slept in something other than her crib or pack & play.  Ian loved it and asked to sleep together again. 

Easter morning egg hunt.

It was a stretch to get it, but she did.

Posing with their baskets.

Killing time before lunch at Great Billie's by swing in the park across from her house.  That's a look of elation on her face. 

At the top of the tall-twisty slide.

Easter egg hunt at Great Billie's.  The bunny did a good job. This one was hid behind a piece of bark.

And this one was so tall, Darrin had to fully extend his arms (my bad for not having the camera oriented vertically...)

Annaliese carried her basket slung on her arm like a purse for the 3 hunts we had this season.  She'd just throw them in there.  Needless to say, we  had more than a few  cracked eggs.  Didn't help that she dropped her basket and the all tumbled out. 

Hunting at Great Billie's.

Another good  job by the bunny. My cousin Amber helps Annaliese reach her egg.

We tried for an Easter picture with Great Billie, but Ashlyn wasn't having any of it. If it wasn't for her, Annaliese was about to go off, anyway. Didn't want to be in the picture without Grandpa.
