Sunday morning after finding their Easter baskets and looking at all the stuff the Easter bunny left for them the kids took a bath and got dressed in their cute Easter outfits. After we were all ready we headed to church. After church and a bathroom break we headed to Grandma Joan's house for a Family Easter Party. We got there just in time to jump in line to eat lunch! After lunch the kids were anctious to get outside to play and find Easter eggs. But, BEFORE that could happen Owen and Ava had to change out of their cute Easter outfits. Why? Well, because I didn't want to deal with muddy clothes and grass stained knees! And, BEFORE that could happen I wanted to get some pictures of the kids in thier outfits. Ezra was extremely noncoopertive. The other two did ok because I told them they would miss the egg hunt if they didn't give me at least one good smile! The group shot was a flop due to Ezra trying to get away and Owen doing his best to hold him back! But, here are a few of what I got...
Today I put away all of our Easter decorations. As I was putting my blue place mat and banana tree back on the kitchen counter were they belong I was proud of myself. It has been 26 days since I cleaned my cluttered catch all counter and it still is clutter free! I honestly didn't think it would even last a week. I was so proud of myself that I thought it deserved a picture and a post. Yes, I know it is a boring post and I promise to get more Easter pictures of the kids posted soon!

As soon as Luke got home from work Thursday night we went to his parent's house for dinner and an Easter egg hunt. Even Luke and I had a gift to find that was hidden in the yard. The kids were released from the house with a new beach bucket to fill up. They had to find one big gift with their name on it and then as many plastic eggs filled with little treasures as they could find. Their were 45 plastic eggs in all. Every single egg was eventually found after lots and lots of looking!

For Christmas our family received a family pass for a year to the Children's Museum from my Mom. I thought it was an awesome idea for a gift instead of receiving a bunch of toys that we REALLY didn't need. We decided to make use of the pass on Saturday and invited Grandma to come along! Owen's favorite part was all the Lego stuff. Ava said she liked "making lunch". Although Ezra couldn't tell me his favorite part it was very easy to tell that he LOVED the automatic hand dryers. We would have to move him out of the way so other children could dry their hands after playing in the water. Ezra didn't really enjoy being moved away from the dryer! After many hours of playing we left the museum and went to visit Uncle Kurt and Auntie Kristin for a couple hours before heading for home. It was great day for all!
