Easter Weekend

We had a nice little Easter celebration as a family this year. We usually don't have anyone in town or go anywhere for Easter, so it's kind of nice to just hang out and do our own thing (which isn't much!) We went to church for one of the Saturday night services. It's a little easier to get everyone going and out the door in the late afternoon. We had some time to take a few pictures before we left for church. They didn't turn out that great, but that's what you get with a 3 year old and a 3 month old!
After church we went out to dinner at Charleston's. It as a little interesting...Cole was great, but Cate had just eaten and didn't have time to fall asleep. So she was kind of fussy for us. Luckily it's not a quiet restaurant, so we didn't bother anyone. We did try to eat kind of quickly though.

Once we got home, we had a little Easter egg hunt for Cole. We wanted to do the egg hunt in Easter clothes, so that's why we decided to do it then. Cole knew what to do this time, and had fun running around the yard looking for his eggs. Some had candy and some had money (coins)...a combination of what Tony and I did as kids.
We had to get a few pictures of Cole with his basket. This is what you get when you ask him to smile sometimes...
And then we wait until we get a normal smile!
Easter morning was nice and relaxing. Cole and Cate slept in, and Cole was up first. I laid out these bunny paws with a message from the Easter Bunny for him. These came from my Mom, who saved them from when we were kids.
Then Cole had to find his Easter basket that was hidden.
He was excited to get some Peeps since he'd been talking about them since we said the word "Easter" weeks ago.
Cole got a few Easter bunny presents along with a swim suit for the summer. He also got presents from both grandparents and my aunt.
This cute little munchkin finally woke up and got to open her Easter gifts from everyone.
We also got a few sweet pictures of the two of them with their Easter baskets.
