Happy Easter

We started this Easter off with lots of fun egg hunts and parties!  The annual egg hunt at our club was so fun!  We did have a minor hi-cup with the egg hunt.   Usually 6 year olds are included in the "little kid" hunt and this year they paired them with the "big kids".  Let just say about 15 6 year olds ended up with completely empty baskets and the sweet staff had to hide over 200 new eggs for them to have another hunt.  We of course insisted they didn't need to do it, but in the end it totally made their night!
 We enjoyed back to back egg hunts the weekend before in our neighborhood and with mommy's bookclub friends!
 My friend Beth and I had to get a picture of Bobo and Bo!!!
 And the night before Easter we put out carrots and our bowl full of festive eggs!
 The Easter Bunny brought the twins good stuff this year!!!  They loved their new movies, activities and lots of sweets!

 Ryan and I made a fun bunny breakfast before heading to church.

Lunch and one last egg hunt at Ryan's parents house to wrap up the holidy in the afternoon!   We spent alot of time this year trying to make them understand the real meaning of Easter.  We got resurrection eggs a few years ago and this was the first year I think they really understood the story and meaning of this special day.  I do treasure the innocence of them being little kids and I couldn't believe how into Easter and the egg hunts they were this year.  Hoping we can stretch it one more year!!! 

Quick Lake Getaway

A few days away was so good for us all!  We left from school last Thursday and met Ryan at Lake Norman for a few days.   The weather was drastically different each day, but luckily it was gorgeous Thursday!  We arrived and immediately got on the boat.  We drove around and then stopped at Hello Sailor for a bit before exploring some more and a late bedtime.

The next day it was raining off and on, but we fished in between the rain.  

The twins also ate at Waffle House for the first time!  I grew up in a Waffle House...like spent a lot of time there.  My parents actually met at WH when my mom was working as a waitress and my dad took over the location she worked at! 

We fished some more, dyed Easter eggs, played lots of games and hide and seek before getting dressed up for dinner at Kindred.  
This sweet boy still constantly falls asleep in the car.  
 Saturday was very cold and raining off and on so we again just relaxed and put together puzzles and played games.  We wanted to be home for Easter morning so we headed back to Charlotte mid day and stopped for lunch at our favorite place, The Pickled Peach!  If you are near the lake or Davidson area it is a must!!!
We fish alot, but this was a first...Bobo cast his own line and reeled in the fish by himself!  He was so proud!
