We celebrated Easter this year at my parents' house, and it turned out to be a super low-key, relaxing weekend — exactly what we needed! My family is big on traditions, and for Easter we have a few that we are intent on passing on to Ryder and Kiley.
We colored Easter eggs.
We made a Bunny Cake.
We gave out Easter baskets.
We had an indoor Easter egg hunt.
|I put a mini marshmallow inside each of the plastic eggs and I don't think Ryder could have been more thrilled...|
We got dressed up and went to church.
|Actually, it was just Nana and Ryder who went to church, but it does continue to be a tradition for some family members.|
We had an outdoor Easter egg hunt.
During Ryder's nap,
Stew and I the Easter Bunny re-hid all the eggs out in the front yard, and once again Ryder had the time of his life running around looking for them and eating more mini marshmallows. I have a feeling that Easter, with all of it's treats, is going to end up being his favorite holiday, just like his daddy.
|My brother AJ, my sister-in-law Morgan, and their little egg, still cooking...|
|Not quite old enough for egg hunts yet. Next year will be another story...|
Kiley hung out in the yard.
|She wasn't quite sure what to think of that big, bright ball up in the sky... she hasn't had much experience with the sun, yet.|
For whatever reason, Ryder always seems to receive sidewalk chalk as an Easter present. Just one look of it and chills of fear run over my entire body, so I do not participate in this particular activity. Did you know that Calxophobia, or the fear of chalk, is a real thing?
After a lovely afternoon hanging around outside with the kids, my mom served an absolutely delicious ham dinner with all the trimmings.
Although it was just a small group of us this year, it was honestly the most relaxing holiday I can remember having in a long time.
We hope that you had a wonderful Easter as well.
Now bring on Spring!
