We enjoyed a nice, relaxing Easter this year. Jonathan and I got to go on a hot yoga date in the morning while Nana and Grandpa watched the boys. After we got back there were Easter buns, Easter baskets, an egg hunt, carrot ginger soup, and lots of playing in the sunshine!
How cute are they?!
During Silas’ nap, Avery and Kieron hunted for chocolate Easter eggs in the front yard. Here are a couple cute shots of them overlooking some pretty obvious ones.
But then they kicked into serious egg-hunting mode and found them all!
Later we all played in the back yard.
Poor Silas has been teething for quite some time, but we haven’t seen any new teeth for months. I sure hope they break through soon!
Remember the cute shot of all three boys at the beginning of the post? A lot of work went into getting that picture. I’ll let these tell the story:

Saturday was the big Easter egg hunt at Centennial Fields, in North Bend. It took about one minute for 1,000 kids to collect 10,000 eggs once the Easter Bunny arrived via firetruck and blew the whistle. Nana and Grandpa came to visit for the weekend and celebrate not only Easter, but Avery & Jonathan’s birthdays. We had beautiful weather again, and I even got to break out my capris for the first time this year!
Hayden & Avery spotted one of the golden eggs (there were 10 in the fields) that would win them a special Easter basket. They were prepared to rush for it once the whistle blew.
“See, it’s over there!”
Despite his best efforts, Avery collided with another boy who rushed for the golden egg, and did not get it. He was momentarily upset, but then recovered and went after some of the plastic ones.
Kieron was a great little egg hunter this year, and was even sweet enough to share some of his loot with a younger girl who came up empty-handed.

Our Easter celebration began on Friday afternoon with a party at Kieron’s new preschool, which is a farm school complete with hens, ducks, goats, giant bunnies, and a Bernese Mountain Dog. We got lucky and had a beautiful sunny day. There was an egg hunt, followed by snacks, planting in the garden, playing, and exploring the farm. We had a terrific time!
