Easter Weekend.

Easter Weekend started with my good friend and neighbors inviting the ladies to come over and go hot tubbing with cute Avery. Oh my, they loved it! Adyson came home and told us that "We HAVE to get a hot tub."
Keep dreaming Adyson.
Thank goodness for neighbors.Oh to be a kid again!Saturday brought my favorite weekend of the year! The girls shopping trip. It's slightly pathetic how much we look forward to this weekend. Here is my mom, Breje, and Heather. Aren't they all beauties?And me and Amy (and Lucy's joined us via Amy's belly). Yes, we like cheesecake. We managed to get each of us a slice to take home, and a slice for our hubbies (since they stayed home with the kids all day). We just cracked up when she brought the cheesecake out and it barely fit on the table. And we didn't have a whole lot of room in my trunk for shopping bags...but it was fun indeed!
Travis and the girls went to his moms during the day for the Kidman Easter Egg hunt. My mother in law texted me loads of cute pictures testifying to the fun that was had, but I have no idea how to get them off my phone and onto the computer! (Want to e-mail me some Lorraine??)
When we got home from our shopping trip, we found some time to die Easter eggs at my moms house. It's always a good balance of chaos and fun. Can you tell mom left early in the morning and the ladies didn't have to get their hair done? They loved it!Heather brought some ties for us to die eggs with, and you can't really tell (due to my awesome photog skills) but they were really, really cool. I can't wait to do it again next year.Easter morning brought the hidden basket, with a chocolate egg (Sienna's been begging for one since they started stocking them at the grocery store), sidewalk chalk, a coloring book, some fun little odds and ends, and a little candy. Adyson's favorite thing would have to be her magnifying glass. She's our weird little science nut.
We usually keep Easter simple. But we've wanted to get the girls a Barbie jeep to drive outside for a while now, but really wanted to give it to them as a gift to share. If we would have gotten it for Adyson for her b-day, she wouldn't be so keen to let Enna drive it, and visa versa. So The Easter Bunny delivered. (The ladies have already had a chat about how next year he might not do so much....
They were shocked, and screamed loudly.

Somehow I don't have a pic of the ladies in it together, but rest assured, they've both spent hours riding around in the Jeep. This morning my house was oh so quiet inside! Well done Easter Bunny!!!
Sunday in between sessions the kiddos got to go on another Easter Egg hunt at my parents house. Here is a pic of them begging for us to open the doors and let them out.
3 at one time! Adyson was thrilled.
Sienna, in her whale slippers of course. (she rarely takes the things off!)All the cousins. Goodness they are just so cute!

Our weekend was lovely, although we would have liked some sunshine. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend as well.

Your girls only shopping trip, always sounds like so much fun. Don't be surprised if I invite myself next year haha

p.s. I think it is a rule that no one can leave the cheesecake factory without a take out bag full of desserts...yumm (their carrot cake it delish)!

such cute kids! How nice to get a barbie jeep. My kids also want one but I'm just not sure. You'll have to let me know if it's worth it.
