Easter Weekend Fun

The past two days were filled with non-stop Easter fun. We started off our Easter weekend at our church Eggstravaganza. Hudson had so much fun looking at the animals in the petting zoo, opening eggs at the egg hunt, playing in the ball pit, and eating a picnic lunch.

He loved "helping" Daddy fold up the blanket after our picnic lunch...

After the Eggstravagana, we headed home for a nap before leaving to go to the Helwig Family's house for an Easter Eve dinner and egg hunt. Hudson had such a good time playing with Griffin, Avery, and Gannon, and Hudson and Kelly and I had so much fun visiting with our friends.

The girls: Aurora, Holly, Leslie, Jaclyn, and Dena
Hudson and Gannon eating M & M's...big time hit!
It started raining and the kiddos really wanted to go back outside. Poor Avery cried and cried while Hudson and Griffin just stood looking sadly out the back door.
Happy, but tired boy ready to go home.
Hudson awoke Sunday morning to discover that the Easter Bunny came to visit...he was very interested in one particular gift...

Is that a lawnmower I see?? How did the Easter Bunny know??

Other than the lawnmower, the grass was the biggest hit of all. :)
After breakfast we headed to church to celebrate the true meaning of Easter.
Ready to go!
After lunch we dyed eggs...he got the hang of it really quickly.
Dropping the tablets in.
Posing with Noni while waiting for the tablets to dissolve.
These next few crack me up...trying to eat an egg...hmmm...don't try this at home kids!

Check out the concentration!




Since the ground outside was SOAKED from raining all night, we had an indoor egg hunt later in the day. Once Hudson realized that the eggs cracked when he dropped them he decided it would be a good idea to drop all of them. Good thing they were hard boiled!

What a wonderful two days full of fun, friends, and fellowship! We hope each of you had a blessed Easter!
