Our First Easter… recap

Easter isn’t really a holiday we celebrate much, but it is a great chance to get together with family!  We decided lay low this year, and opted not to travel back to Wisconsin to visit my family. Instead we stay here to grab lunch with Jeremy’s family, who most certainly did not disappoint.  But first. Let’s talk about the loot.

The Easter Bunny obviously had a little birdie hanging around our house, so he knew there was a new baby in this home.  He showed up sometime Sunday morning with two baskets for the family- one for the boys and one for the girls. Jeremy and the pups got some candy, a few trinket toys, some Burt’s Bees lip balm (that is impossible to find in the stores, BTW), and some beef rib bones.  Lo and I got some candy, some plastic bath books, a set of baby PJs, and bubbles. Good job, Easter Bunny! The best part? The baskets were hidden behind our La-Z-Boy chair, which is where they were always hidden growing up. What a crazy coincidence!

Even though we didn’t have any fancy plans, we wanted to get the little one in a cute dress for Easter lunch. And, since she was wearing a dress, of course I had to torture her by taking a few dozen pictures. Thankfully, we got one really adorable one for the ‘baby book’ (aka, what you’re reading right now. Because clearly I’m never going to actually keep up a real, written baby book.)   Turns out she’s not a fan of headbands though; it lasted all of about 2 minutes before she was reaching to pull it off her head. She still looks ridiculously cute, eh?

We had lunch with Jeremy’s family, so we went over to his parents’ house for the afternoon. It was great to see his parents and uncle and little brother.  I was worried about being gone for awhile during normal nap time, but Lo did great!  She even napped for about an hour at their house while we ate.  She did wake up in time to try a little Easter meal though. We let her taste test a little watermelon and turkey, which she loved. She would’ve eaten the whole bowl of watermelon if I had let her, I think.

She chowed down that turkey, too.  Most of the afternoon we just hung around and caught up with the family.  A few more pictures that I snapped on my phone while we were there:

I should mention just how spoiled Miss Lo is, too.  Apparently the Easter Bunny visited the grandparents’ house too!  She got more goodies there- some toys and clothes, and a shovel and bucket to help dad outside this summer! All in all, it was a great dad with some delicious food 🙂

So that’s our Easter in a nutshell; we are truly blessed to have family nearby that we can visit.
