Another year, another visit from a bunny who scatters plastic eggs all over the place. This will be yet another in a series of last parties at pre-school, but we had a lot more plans than that. Let the endless egg hunts begin!
Well, not yet. First we have to sit down for the traditional pre-game snack.
The area closest to the kids was scoured pretty quickly…
…but Owen wanted to be absolutely sure he got every last egg in the vicinity.
After all the egg hunting, they had a quick egg relay before we headed out.
Once we were done with that, we headed out to pick up Max and make our way to our evening destination. We usually spend Easter down in Houston with the family, but this year we had a bit of a layover in the middle so we could celebrate at my aunt and uncle’s place out in the country. We arrived just in time for dinner, so we called everyone to see if they’d like to come join us. Jenn and her crew were able to come, but Nan and Papa got on the road a little late.
After dinner we met up with Nan and Papa at the hotel for a few minutes before turning in. We struggled to get the kids to go to bed for a while before they finally gave up, then rose bright and early to enjoy the complimentary breakfast buffet. The kids were far more interested in pressing a button on a machine to make pancakes than they were in actually consuming the results, but they ate well enough to get their energy up for the day.
Meanwhile, the adults all sat around enjoying a wide variety of delicious foods…mostly crawfish. Once I grew tired of that, I decided to go play a bit with the kids. Naturally this meant finding my way over to the nearby rows of hay bales.
We went up to the house for a quick restroom break, and the kids managed to slip away from me. Wasn’t tough to find them, though.
After I coaxed them away from the swing, we headed back over to the crawfish boil and I coaxed Christy into joining us on the hay bales for a photo op.
By then the sun was just high enough to start melting chocolate inside of eggs.
The rest of the day was spent finishing up crawfish, helping get everything packed up, and heading off to Nan and Papa’s house so we could spend Easter Sunday there.
After church, we headed back to the house for…
So that happened, then shortly thereafter…
I think that’s about all the photos I can stuff into one blog post. The rest of the weekend was just wrapping up, packing up, and getting ourselves back home. If you want to see the rest of the photos you can click here. Otherwise we’ll see you next time!
