Easter Weekend


This year we went up to my parent's house for Easter. It turned out to be wonderful weather all weekend. It was great. On Saturday we went to the Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. They were so excited!

 Kaity and Matthew were in different age groups this year, but Kaity hung out at Matthew's group until it was time to start. Here they are checking out all the eggs.

 Then Jeff took Kaity to her group and I stayed with Matthew!
 Heres Matthew doing an awesome job getting lots of eggs.
 Heres the eggs that Matthew got...
 and heres what Kaity go. They both did a great job this year!
 In each age group they had 2 or 3 plastic eggs that you turn in for a prize. Kaity got the #1 prize in her age group and Matthew got the #2 prize in his! We have never gotten any plastic eggs before and this year they both got one! I couldn't believe it! We turned the eggs in and claimed our prize. They were amazing prizes. There was a huge stuffed bunny in both, with candy and toys and all kinds of stuff! Good Job kiddos!


After the Easter Egg Hunt, we went to the Camas Center and went swimming. We did the same thing last year at Easter time. Its a pretty fun place. The kids LOVE it! They have 2 pools just for kids to swim in with toys and everything and they are shallow enough that Matthew can touch everywhere and Kaity can touch almost everywhere.

 The kids enjoyed going down this slide again. Since I couldn't go down the slide being pregnant, Jeff took turns with the kids, over and over again. So much fun!
 Kaity and me are sitting waiting for Daddy and Matthew to go down the slide!
 After swimming Matthew and Kaity climbed the rock wall. They both made it up higher than they did last year, but for some reason, Kaity was more scared this year. She needed a little more help.


When we got home we dyed easter eggs. By this point of the day the kids were exhausted. But we still had fun.
 They were both pretty mellow at the beginning...

 but they got happier when their energy returned.


On Easter morning we all got up early and went out to find our baskets and eggs.
 Matthew got some cool Nerf guns and Kaity got some toys called Squishies that she has really been wanting. They are like squichy figures from the Beauty and the Beast movie.
 Matthew loved his guns right away.
 My mom got a goose egg for us to dye this year. It was HUGE. My moom said that it is like 4 eggs worth. It was cool.
 Kaity also got a Rapunzel Doll that she absolutely LOVED! She would sit for hours just brushing her hair. It was really cute.

 Then of course Matthew and Kaity had to go around shooting everybody with the guns! :)


Here are our family Easter pictures. We were kind of rushed but we still got some good pictures.
 We even got to take some pictures outside, the weather was so nice.
