Our Easter Weekend

This was a great weekend. We started it off on Sat. with a neighborhood Easter Hunt and Breakfast in my mom's neighborhood. Jackson had a great time racing down in to the retention basin, each child was only supposed to get 8 eggs but Jackson must have missed those directions since he came back with twice that amount. So I just told him to give half to Hudson who couldn't make it all the way down in there.
Sorry there are so many pics I just loved them all.



Later that day we went to Grandma C's for her annual Painting of the Eggs. Yes painting not dyeing. The kids love it course most of the eggs end up looking the same near the end when the paints have mixed so much that it seems to be one black mess. But oh well whatever makes them happy. This was Hudson's first year and as you can see he was either trying to eat the egg (shell intact) or putting the paint brush in his mouth, so I stripped him down and let him have at it. And boy did he get dirty.








Sunday morning I woke up early to make breakfast before church and so everything could be ready by the time I dragged the guys out of bed. From then on it was go go go. The boys enjoyed their baskets and then headed outside to find the eggs. Hudson would only get one and continue putting it in his basket and taking it out. Jackson also needed a little help during the process, for someone reason he refused to look anywhere but ground level. We got ready for church in our matching outfits ( one of my fav. things about Easter) and headed out. After church we went to my moms for Easter dinner with the family, it was super yummy especially the grilled asparagus and cheesy potatoes. Then it was on to Grandma C's for the Cummard Egg Hunt. This is one of my favorites, since we always let the kids have a turn hiding the eggs. Such a treat to watch, they are so funny and they love to hide them for their other cousins.
Hudson was so excited for his ball from the Easter Bunny, he is what you would say Obsessed with Balls


Jackson loved his ball too, though I am not sure what his face is in this picture
Hudson kept taking his eggs and putting them in J's basket so Jack kept putting them back
I just love their faces in this one

Your boys are so cute! It was so nice to see you guys while I was down. I can't wait to find out what you are having! Keep me posted on how you are doing. Are you going to come up to Utah this year? Erica Gallon ( I do not know how to spell her last name) is in my book club, she said that she has met you. Stephen went on the same mission in LA with her husband Matt.

Wow! What a beautiful family! Your boys are so darn cute! So I actually saw you from a distance at the Easter egg hunt at Harmony Park and I would've come over to say hi except we all got lost in the crowd of a million! So that would have been 3 times in a week! Crazy huh? It was good to see you and you look gorgeous!!

I don't think you really know who I am, I am a good friend of Hayleys. I can't belive how big Jackson is, I remember when he was born and how little he was when I would see him at your moms house. Well your boys are cute and congrats on the new baby. Tell Hayley I say hi!
