Easter weekend

We had a wonderful holiday. We had the opportunity to travel to Delaware to see my family. It has been a long time since I spent Easter at home.

Before we left we spent some time with Uncle Max making Easter Egg Cookies! Both had a great time! Elizabeth loves "party cake" aka sprinkles so this was quite the experience!
Saturday morning, we got up and went to my parents favorite joint for breakfast. We then went to the mall to see the Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny has received far less hype than Santa so I don't think Elizabeth realized that you sit on this huge bunnies lap! She refused at first but I am not above bribery so we headed straight for the Disney store to buy something Mickey. No surprise that she then sat with EB! I haven't scanned those pictures in yet. Saturday afternoon E's cousin Domi came down so the girls could decorate Easter Eggs.

Those scooper tools only work to keep your hands clean IF you use them!

Such determination! Her belly still has the pink stain!

Domi enjoyed coloring her eggs and was happy to show off her work!
Saturday was also our 6th wedding anniversary so my parents took us all out to dinner. After we got E off to bed and we ran an errand to the grocery store we stopped by a local tavern for a celebratory toast! It was the first time we had been a restaurant by ourselves in a year. It was a real treat even if it only lasted 45 minutes. Thanks Mom and Dad for keeping your ears open for her so we could escape for a few!

Saturday night, the Easter bunny came. Elizabeth loved her Easter basket full of treats. We tried to explain to her about finding the eggs but she just didn't get it at first. We practically had to point directly to eggs that she walked right past in plain view. After about 4 eggs, she got it and tore around looking for them.

What chocolate goodness so early in the morning!

Baba and Lizzy!

After our hunt, we went to church with my Aunt and Uncle. My aunt sung in the choir which did a special performance for Easter. It was wonderful! After church we went back to their house for lunch. It was then back home for a Daddy-style Easter Egg Hunt (plastic eggs in the yard). Both Domi and Elizabeth found lots of eggs, unfortunately my camera decided it was nap time.
