We had a great Easter weekend with lots of family this year. My brother usually only makes it home once a year if we are lucky, but he was here for Christmas and then Easter. I had absolutely no voice for most of the weekend. It was so hard!!! I was actually just whispering the whole time.
(Will tried Pavlova for the first time. I think he liked it)
(We did a brunch for 20 people on the Saturday so we could all meet my friend Jenny's new baby. She was the sweetest. And I made a piñata*)
(These cousins are the best)
(My friend Jess did a scavenger hunt for the preschoolers, and the bunny ring pops were the clear winner. These kids are pretty lucky)
(Bathing Will. Graycie LOVES helping out with Will, which makes me so happy)
(My dad is loving that the kids are getting old enough for his scavenger hunts. When I turned 16, our Easter scavenger hunts started to involve driving around this town collecting stuff. So awesome)
(My sister whipped up these bunny pancakes. I mean, come on. So cool)
(My mother has a tea set that is exclusively for Easter. Seriously, these kids are the luckiest!)
(My mom did some baking with the kiddos. She was cool with the batter going all over her couch. Haha)
(We did this impromptu photo session with little Will. Pretty cute!)
(Sweet Graycie feeding Will)
*Making the piñata was actually pretty easy. It just needed lots of drying time, so you need a place you can hang it and leave it for a few days. I did two layers of newspaper and flour+water mixture. And then I used tissue paper to decorate. The kids had a difficult time busting it. It was filled with lindt bunnies and kinder eggs. This kids seemed for sure more interested in the rice crispy squares I threw in to fill things up. I am learning that kids seem to always prefer the cheaper candy/snacks/toys.
Easter a few years ago with less family here.
