Easter weekend

We had a great Easter weekend. The weather was gorgeous. On Saturday we got up and went to Lake Park to see Brenda and Addison. They were having a "festival" at the outlets. We there wasn't much of a festival, but I did do a little shopping!! There was a petting zoo so the kids got to pet goats, bunnies, and a sheep. Colton seemed to really enjoy it. He kept trying to grab the goat by the tail though. Then we took the kids back to Brenda's for lunch and so they could take their naps. The Easter egg hunt was at 3:00 so we went back for that. The Easter bunny was there and from a distance at first Colton didn't mind, but then the bunny touched him and he lost it!! I have never known him to be afraid of anything like he was with the bunny. The hunt went well. There was probably 500 or more kids there!! Colton and Addison did good though. We emptied all the eggs when we got home and threw all the "treasures" out since it was nothing that Colton could play with. He likes to carry his eggs around in his bucket though. I have pictures, but they are on my Mom's camera and I don't have it here with me. I did post the pictures on my Facebook page though.

Sunday we went to the early service and went home for a while so Colton could rest a little and eat lunch before the egg hunt there at noon. Good thing too because the nursery had 16 kids at the 11:00 service. Normally there is about 3 or 4. We got to church a little early and Colton had a great time playing with all the kids there. That hunt went well as well. There was candy in those eggs so we kept that "loot." There was an Easter bunny there too and Colton had a fit once again, but this time even when he was across the yard!! I had to settle him down to get his picture in front of the cross.

I still can't figure out how to add pictures the way I want them to be. I want to be able to write above the first picture and I never can. Also they are never in the order that I want them to be in!! Oh well-- you get the idea.


  1. Looks like you had a great Easter weekend! It's so much fun to watch the kids during an Easter egg hunt!

    He looks like such a little man in his Sunday best!

  2. Great pictures, and it sounds like a great weekend! I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of Austin in his Church clothes because Church is right at his nap time and he is more than ready to crash when we get home.

    I saw your comment on my blog, no we did not feel the earth quake, but thanks for thinking of me. We are way up north on the border with Utah, pretty much smack dab in the middle of the state as far as east/west. The Grand Canyon is between us and the earthquake. We do live near a fault line though and when Austin was about 10 months old I was up at 11:00pm rocking him and felt a little 3.0 earth quake.
