Easter 2012

With all the traveling, Easter Sunday was a little different for us this year.  In fact, we didn't even attempt to make it to church.  We knew we would be in late and were unsure about Eli's behavior at that point, so we didn't even pack fancy clothes.

If you remember, Eric and I bought Eli a bunny at Build A Bear for Easter in case we didn't make it back to do the traditional celebrations.  Well, Eric's mom insisted that Eli have a few things from the Easter Bunny, so she bought some toys and filled some eggs with candy and money.

Sunday morning she used flour to make "bunny prints" on the drive-way and Eli had a private little egg hunt.  Above he had just found several boats...gotta love Nan.

After Eli's little egg hunt, Eric's dad got several Tonka Trucks out of the attic.  As you can tell, they were a major hit for both of my boys.

We decided to take Eli fishing before lunch, but it's kinda an oxymoron to take a toddler fishing. Ha!  They are not still, quiet nor patient!!  Luckily, a yummy Easter meal awaited up back at the house!

After lunch Eli took a nap while Eric and I spent the last few hours of our vacation riding four-wheelers and getting some trees to take back to our house.  Sadly, all good things must come to an end...thus we had to leave to make it back for work on Monday.
