Pancakes & Easter Eggs

Spring Break was last week for Charlotte. The beginning of the week was very laid back, just relaxing, doing MANY puzzles, playing, going to parks, just hanging out. Thursday was the big day - the arrival of Grammie and Granddad. We picked them up at the airport and I'm not sure Charlotte has been detached from my mom for more than 10 minutes since then.

Friday morning my parents took the kids to the park and to lunch while Judd and I cleaned out the disaster area that had become our garage. Since the kitchen renovation, it has progressively gotten worse - the point we could just pull the cars in, but that was it. We worked pretty hard and got everything put away, given away, or thrown away. It feels awesome to have a clean garage! Friday afternoon we went to a neighborhood Easter Egg hunt.

Saturday morning we woke up and went to the church pancake breakfast and Easter Egg hunt. Charlotte was pretty excited about the egg hunt. This is really the first year she has totally understood the strategy of the egg hunts and could get there fast enough to get lots of eggs. We ate our pancakes, got pictures with the Easter bunny, and not-so-patiently waited around for the hunt to start.



We made our way over to our designated egg hunt area. However, Max and I were one of the last ones to enter the area and the hunt had already started. Poor Max didn't get to find a single egg. Judd and Charlotte somehow were at the front of the pack and Charlotte was able to participate. Charlotte very sweetly shared a few of her eggs with Max. My mom was pretty disgusted that Max didn't get a single egg and Charlotte had to share, so she went over to another egg hunt area and nabbed some eggs for Charlotte. One of the eggs happened to be a golden egg. Charlotte was thrilled and pretty impressed with her Grammie.



We hung out on the playground and ate candy for a long time after the hunt.



We went home, ate lunch and relaxed. Then mom, Charlotte, and I headed out to shop for a while. Judd and I were able to sneak out for a dinner by ourselves last night.

We had a lovely Easter today, more on that tomorrow...
