Happy Easter!

Chris and I helped Collin find eggs.

Memaw and Papa helped the big boys.

Sometime in the 6 a.m. hour, I heard Connor exclaim, "Cooper, wake up! Wake up! It's Easter!" The excitement in his voice was unmistakable.

Within seconds, the boys bounded down the stairs to search for Easter goodies. This year, I attempted to create a healthier, more practical Easter basket (think less treats, and more books). My efforts were greeted with considerable less enthusiasm from my sweet-loving little ones. Fortunately, they didn't let their Easter basket blues cloud the remainder of the day.

Easter was spent in the usual way: church followed by a lunch and Easter egg hunt at Memaw and Papa's house. Wet weather forced the Easter egg hunt indoors. The self-proclaimed Easter Bunny Assistance (a.k.a. Papa) had a ball hiding eggs in the garage among the lawn movers and garbage cans. From the retrieved eggs, the boys secured more than enough candy to make up for the morning's sparsely sweet baskets.

At the end of the day, the boys returned home: chocolate covered, full bellied, and overflowing with memories.
