We started our Good Friday with some Easter coloring, a trip to a fabric store that I never get to go to, the park, and lunch. (What kind of business can they run with hours M-F 9-4? I get to go once every few years!) More on what I bought later. Then, home for a nap and some egg dyeing. Sam loves it. I do too.
Sam got a kit from Build-a-Bear (thanks, MamaLinda!) so we used the drops rather than food coloring. It also came with stickers and glitter!
Later, Ellie enjoyed dyeing her eggs too.
Saturday morning, Sam was heartbroken as I used the eggs in my potato salad. But we enjoyed lunch with some Mauters over at the Atchisons house.
And, no Easter celebration would be complete without an egg hunt.
On Easter morning, Sam woke up very early to hunt for her basket. She found it behind the french door in the entrance hall. The night before, she told me that she wished the Easter Bunny would not hide it in the place he did last year: on top of the china cabinet. I’m surprised she remembered!
Ellie’s basket was hidden under the piano.
The Easter Bunny took it easy this year: some books, some candy, bubbles, and some hair accessories.
And unfortunately after this, the camera got a smudge on the lens, so the rest of the pictures are smudgy.

The beach week has come and gone again. The memorable parts were rain, clouds and jellyfish. But, we did have a good time. Samantha really enjoyed the pool more than the beach and wanted to spend all her time there. Ellie enjoyed both.

My granddad’s 80th birthday party was at the Lake this year. It was lots of food, family, and great weather. Even though the day started out with a major mishap involving a blueberry pie, I think all the evidence has been cleaned up by now.
And check out this great picture from Lizzie’s blog. Boy, Sam sure does love pumpkins. I guess it’s good that she’s an October baby.

We’re still working through all of our pictures, but here’s one for proof. We had lots of fun.
What a trip! We stayed in the big house again, and it seemed like there weren’t as many people there as usual. I guess that’s because there wasn’t.
Sam enjoyed the water this year, but was still a little anxious at first. Every year, it takes less time for her to get used to the water.
Ellie didn’t mind the sand at all, but I think the heat bothered her.
I think she enjoyed Patrick’s truck almost as much as he did! We also discovered during this trip, that she likes push toys and wheels!
And some family:

We headed to the Lake this year to celebrate Easter. The kiddos were excited to have an Easter Egg Hunt and play on the new swing set. Whenever these 3 get together, it’s bound to be exciting!
