Easter Sunday

Our family had an absolutely wonderful Easter Sunday! One of the nicest I can remember having, in fact! For some odd reason, we were ridiculously organized and prepared for our early morning church breakfast, the time of worship that followed, and the afternoon egg hunt and lunch at Mimi and Pop's. An extremely rare feat these days but certainly not an unwelcome one! The weather was gorgeous and we spent most of the day outside on the back porch playing on the swing, laughing at my niece's knock-knock jokes, and just plain shooting-the breeze.
I must say, Judah's really good at breeze-shootin. Just make sure that belly's full and he'll shoot the day away!
See? More shootin!
The big boys played their hearts out on the slide and in the sand box stopping only for...
...a water break every now and then.
And just when they thought it couldn't get any better, out came the Easter baskets! Despite Mimi's best efforts to hide the candy in the bottom of the basket hoping the fun toys would distract them, they would not be deceived. Those boys can sniff out a piece of candy from miles away. I know. I've seen them do it at the park.
And once those baskets were empty, there was only one right thing to do. Fill em' up! With Easter eggs!
But not without a little coaching first...
...except for Judah, he decided to just shoot some more breeze with Nana.
And last but not least, what spring day could be enjoyed by a little boy without a bug in a jar. Oh man, did A.B. enjoy this honey bee that daddy caught for him. He shook carried his "bee-sh hou-sh" around for most of the day before the poor bee just. stopped.buzzing. Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all, right?!
I just wonder if the bee would have said the same thing.

Great pictures. Glad you all had a good day--except for that poor bee of course.

Loving every minute of these pictures. Sure wish I could see them in person. Judah is getting soooooo big! Love to you all.
