Easter 2017

Happy Easter to all of our family and friends near and far! We had a very nice and relaxing day. We work up to Easter Bunny prints on our table and an Easter basket for each of us. We even had another egg hunt outside! Mama made delicious homemade cinnamon rolls and we relaxed at home for a little bit. We also used the mini M&Ms from Aunt Donna to decorate our Easter egg cake. In the afternoon we went to BeBe and Pappy's and enjoyed the beautiful weather. It was so nice that we even got to test out our new pool!!!
Checking out what's in the baskets.
Club Minis are my current favorite cracker.




We had so much fun looking for eggs.


Yes, I am wearing Halloween pajamas on Easter. Hahaha!


Teamwork! 
This is Hayden saying "Cheese!" Ha! Ha!




Checking out what's inside of our eggs.

We also got to open mail from Germany!
Mmm! Chocolate eggs.
Danke Tante Michelle, Onkel Guenni, Kai und Nora!!
Yummy cinnamon rolls!



We painted our crafts from Aunt Donna.
Concentration!

Time to decorate the cake.

I liked making patterns.

Goofy boy!

Getting the pool ready.

It even has a little slide!


We had to put our Penguins jerseys on and take a picture with Daddy.

What a day! Hayden fell asleep at 6:30.
He then decided to wake back up around 7:45 and didn't go back
to sleep until after 10:00!! Mommy was not happy!
Here are a few videos from yesterday...

Oma and Opa's - Day 5

Today was family day! The day started off with a yummy breakfast and then we had an Easter Egg hunt outside! Oma, Mama, Hayden, and I went to Phipps to see the pretty flowers. Aunt Donna came over for dinner and Tabitha and Logan came to say goodbye.
We had some surprises from the Easter Bunny!

Searching for eggs.
So excited!!!
Hayden found a chocolate bunny!



We took a picture here last year too. We missed Kai and Nora
this year!

The beautiful tulips in front of Phipps.

Hayden really has to work on his smile! Ha!

Don't worry, Pluto hasn't been replaced. He got this lamb in his
Easter basket and was really excited about it.
How cool is that big squirrel?
The orchid room.






Visiting the 3 bears.
We took this picture for Simone! Smooch!


Making a wish.

Oh Hayden! He wanted to sit instead of stand.
That is one big plant!
"When a red cardinal appears in your yard, it's a visitor from Heaven."
Not our yard and not even a real cardinal but it was neat because
there were so many! We immediately thought of Opa Richard.



Another tree with a red cardinal. 

Hayden decided to plop down and take a rest.







These are toys from when Mommy and Aunt Michelle
were little girls!
Spaetzle round 2!
Some attempts at taking a picture with Oma and Opa.
Hayden was not cooperating.
Selfie attempt!
Self timer attempt.
Completing a word search with Aunt Donna.
Thanks for the cool painting crafts!


Peek-a-boo!

We tried to recreate that picture with Logan. It did not go
over so well.

Oma and me.

We came home on Friday. We made cinnamon rolls and had breakfast with Opa before we left.

Almost home. Changing the movie one last time.
Trying out the new chairs from Oma and Opa. They are
technically Mommy and Daddy's chairs. We shall see. Ha!

 We had a wonderful Spring Break and enjoyed seeing all of our family and friends. We will come back in the summer and do it all again!
Love and miss you all!!!
