Easter 2015

This year Easter was on April 5th. 

But we celebrated at my parents' house on the 4th.

Mom & Dad had a memorial service to go to that afternoon so we had an Easter breakfast 

with a yummy spread of food!

And the kids had bunny pancakes.

They turned out really cute!

After breakfast, the kids went outside & threw confetti eggs at each other.
They even threw some at Nick!

Sweet little Emery just wanted to play with the eggshells though.

And then they all hunted Easter eggs.

Well except for Hannah. She helped hide them.

And this guy showed up at Mom & Dad's too!

We left Mom & Dad's & went to Brooke's house for a little bit & the kids had a blast playing with their cousins!

Then we went back to Nick's parent's house & stayed the night there.
And luckily the Easter Bunny was able to track us down so that he could fill up the kids' Easter baskets!

He left them lots of good stuff.

And they loved it all!

Addy wanted pancakes for breakfast again, so I made these for her.

And then we had hamburgers for lunch.
It was raining outside so the kids & their cousins hunted eggs inside the house.
(But I guess I didn't get any pictures of any of that. Oh well!)

It was a nice Easter weekend with the all the family!

SOE School Carnival 2015

On March 27th, the kids' school had its annual school carnival & movie night.

The carnival was a lot of fun!
There were blow up slides 

and bouncy houses.

A train.

A bungee trampoline.

And the wrecking ball. 
Which swung from side to side while spinning.
Addy absolutely loved it!

Alex did not!

When the carnival ended, we met up with Alex's friend & her family

 & laid out our blankets on the playground

and watched Big Hero 6.

It was a super fun night for the kids & something that they look forward to every year!
