Saturday we decorated our Easter eggs. This was the first year that the kids could do it all by themselves, although Bella did crack one by mistake.
Saturday we also celebrated Jeremy's and Mom's birthdays by going out to Bucca de Beppo, Jer's favorite restaurant- they have a great Apple Gorgonzola Salad and real thin crust Italian pizza. We got the "Pope" room- it has a bust of Pope Benedict and a large Lazy Susanne that you spin your family style food around on.
The next morning the Easter Bunny came. He left the girls candy, a cute white bunny, a pinwheel, and a Disney princess castle to share.
We went to the 8:30 church service after seeing our baskets. The night before, as I was cleaning up around house ;) I accidentally dropped a large metal art box on my toe and broke it. We got to church 5 minutes early, or should I say late because as everyone knows, Easter service is packed. We had to stand outside in the courtyard. It was actually quite nice and peaceful, and luckily there was a bench that I could sit down for my foot. They had speakers, so that you could hear, and we watched the storm clouds over head that didn't produce anything but shade for us. We went to Carol and Dick's house afterwards for a ham lunch.
Tanner and Tessa and the Lunn cousins hunted Easter eggs. The big kids, Caleb and Tanner, went first in the front yard. The adults had to help step in, because they were hidden so good. It was an all out affair.
In the back yard, Tessa, Chloe, Keira, Victoria, and Bella looked for their eggs.
After the hunt we sat around and chatted. Josh showed us how he walks on his hands.
