Day Three - Happy Easter!!

Bek is a woman after my own heart when it comes to making the most out of holiday celebrations and we had a lot of fun preparing for Easter. After a dinner of Boston Market (which is like crack to me and it is probably a good thing there are none in my immediate area) we let the kids color eggs for awhile.

Junior and Lauren trying to out-do each other on cool designs.

Norah just liked the pink :-)

Jacob and Bubba were partners in crime (literally. It was a constant battle to keep these two from shooting everyone in the face with their nerf guns.)

Tired eyes! Norah wasn't down with having her picture taken so early in the morning.

Veggie Tales Marshmallow candies. He was a lot more excited about them than he looks in this picture. You'll have to take my word for it...

Sweet Little Gracie!

The Easter Bunny even found me! Apparently, moms get pottery barn pillow covers, Philosophy lotion and Lindt chocolate, among other treasures. Thanks again, Easter Bunny!

It didn't take Sis and Gracie long to find an unattended Easter Basket. In this case, it was Bubba's.

After Egg Hunting, it was breakfast with the missionaries who are renting out the studio apartment attached to the house.

Easter Morning aftermath. Any attempts to talk about Jesus or the Resurrection were met by blank, chocolate drugged stares. Maybe next year...

We had supplies and plans to have a barbeque on the beach, but those plans were derailed by the freezing cold and pouring rain as we started to load up. So, we had a nice traditional Easter meal at Benihana's instead. Bubba was intrigued by the chop sticks and kept them for the entire trip using them for everything except eating.

A little nervous about the fire and smoke on the grill.

Sis loved watching the chef flip his spatula around. I couldn't get her to turn her head and eat her food.

Post meal - Jacob gave being a chef a shot. He might just have a Benihana career. A job that involves fire and throwing knives around. What's not to love?


  1. So fun. You and Bek are the reason I feel guilty every single holiday. The Easter bunny was lucky to get anything for baskets this year since she forgot it was Easter until 3 days beforehand!

  2. It's so fun to see it through your camera. I didn't rake any pictures!! MAK. Just come to my house for holidays. Easy.

  3. I have to do you 'rake' a picture?

    I love when Bek posts from her iPhone.

  4. Looks like a fun time. I'm glad I am not the only one who wasn't able to impress upon my kids the seriousness of Easter
