Easter Sunday

Easter morning was nice and relaxing.  Since the Easter Bunny came on Saturday morning we could
just relax and enjoy our morning.  After church we started working on our egg drop for Grandma and Grandpa's house.  We thought for sure we had a winner.  After Brooklyn's nap we headed over to the Grandparents for the Easter festivities.

Cute cousins in their matching pink and blue.

After dinner was the egg hunt.  All of the kids love this so much.  Logan got over $8.00.  I think he had the most out of all of the cousins.  Brooklyn had around $6.00.

She loved finding eggs and shaking them.

I love Easter.  I love the reason for the holiday and I love all of the traditions that I enjoyed growing up and now my kids get to enjoy them.

Easter Saturday

Even though Easter was a month and a half ago I still feel the need to blog about it.  We had a great Easter with all of our great traditions.
On Friday night we dyed Easter Eggs.  This year we decided to use KoolAid instead of dye and it worked out so well, that we will do that every year.  Logan especially liked dying eggs this year.

Our finished eggs.  I felt like the colors were way better than with store bought dyes and smelly vinegar.

Saturday morning we woke up and found that the Easter Bunny had come.  Both kids got a swim suit, sandals, kites, a book, candy, movies, and some other little things.

Brooklyn needed to put her new swimsuit and slippers on right away.

After a relaxing morning we went bowling.  My grandparents just joined a country club and rented out the bowling alley.  It was awesome.  It looked like it was straight from the 60's. 

Brooklyn loved running around the whole place.  It was great not having other people to worry about.

We even had to keep our own score.

Logan loves bowling and is actually starting to get to the point where he doesn't need the ramp.

Brooklyn also loves bowling.

It was so much fun.  I hope this bowling alley becomes our new tradition.
