The Easter bunny came to our house!! He left a trail of jellybeans from Coleman and Carter's bedroom to their Easter baskets. He also left them pirate telescopes, bandanas, and treasure maps! Coleman and Carter were so excited that they slept in their bandanas, and held their telescopes and maps. We've been hunting for treasure all week....I sure hope they find some! That afternoon, we had both of our families over for lunch and had another Easter egg hunt for Coleman, Carter, and R.T.
Okay, so this was our last Easter egg hunt. It was at a church down the street and it was HUGE. Jared's brother, Daniel, was in town and was able to take part in the crazy festivities. There were tons of eggs, so the boys filled their baskets and then told us they were done. Ha! I'm pretty sure they are going to be confused next month when there are no more parties, holidays, or presents! Saturday afternoon, Jared's parents came in town and we also went to the Easter service at our church. I figured it was easier to get the munchkins dressed and ready for an afternoon service than letting them see their Easter baskets and forcing them into the car on Easter morning.
We went to an Easter egg hunt at my parent's church and the boys had a blast. They had balloon animals, face painting, bounce houses, and a petting zoo. I'm pretty sure that the petting zoo was Coleman and Carter's favorite part! They loved chasing after the baby ducks and bunnies.
We were invited to go to the Governor's Mansion for an Easter egg hunt this year by some friends. Unfortunately, it rained and the hunt was more of a "take an egg or two from the basket." The boys still had a good time and were able to see the Easter bunny.
Coleman and Carter got their own cars for their birthday...13 years early. :o) They LOVE their cars, and Carter has claimed the green tractor while Coleman has claimed the black suv. The first day I think they rode them outside for more than 3 hours before being dragged in. They are becoming great drivers and have lots of years to practice before the real deal.
