Happy Easter from the Alway Family

Happy Easter, everyone!

Or, as Stewart likes to refer to it, "The Best Candy Holiday." 

And oh boy, it sure seems like our little bunny has inherited Daddy's sweet tooth!

For reasons different than Stewart's, Easter is my mom's favorite holiday, so we always make sure to celebrate it with her and my family. While for me this no longer means sitting through several hours of a Catholic mass, it does include lots of fun traditions and memory-making.

Holidays just get better and better the older Ryder gets!

It was a beautiful spring day, and we spent the morning teaching Ryder how to dye Easter eggs...

To be honest, I was super busy and overwhelmed leading up to this particular holiday, so I wasn't really able to put together a proper Easter basket for Ryder. But honestly, what does a little boy really need besides a basket full of plastic eggs filled with jelly beans?

I promise, he could not have been happier... or more high on sugar. 

In my family, our tradition growing up was you had to find your hidden Easter basket, as well as colorful plastic eggs that were hidden all over the house. It was so much fun re-creating that tradition for Ryder this year. I loved hearing his adorable squeal of delight every time he found another egg.

He did also receive some non-edible gifts like sidewalk chalk and bubbles, and we spent a lot of the day playing outside in the sunshine. Then later we went over to Grandma Sally's house for a visit with even more relatives.

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends!

Do you have any fun Easter traditions?
