Easter Eggstravaganza!

We recently got home from a fabulous weekend spending Easter with my husband's family in Texas. Easter didn't just start there, it began last week with one of 3 Easter egg hunts at our church...

The boys and their sweet friend, Keely, listening to instructions

Dad surprised us with the camera (a little too close...)

Sweet brothers

And the kids playing in the egg tub after the hunt :)

On Thursday Caden had his Easter egg hunt and picnic at his Preschool...

Caden with some of his little friends

Pryce loved climbing the steps :)

After the hunt we were able to stay and have a picnic with the kids and their families. It was really sweet to see Caden with friends!

Later that afternoon we colored some eggs with the boys...Since my husband is an artist he took advantage of this moment to teach Caden about primary and secondary colors. He was in his element...

The boys had a lot of fun playing(crushing) with their newly dyed eggs...we found out that they can withstand a throw onto the carpet, but not the contracting hand of a toddler...

Friday we woke up early and got on the road for the 12 hour trip to Midland, TX to spend the weekend with the Hubbs family. I kept forgetting to take pictures, but we had a GREAT time! Saturday The Hubbs entire extended family came over to his parents house for the day. We had a surprise party for his uncle's 60th birthday which included an incredible chuck wagon (cowboy) dinner cooked over the fire, an "Amazing Race" competition between couples, a huge egg hunt for the kids, and a lot of visiting.

Saturday was capped off by some games of gin rummy and then off to bed...we were SO tired!

*Easter* Sunday morning we went to church with the fam...

Bow ties made for the boys by my friend Krista at Boykee Boutique!

My sweet boy after church!

I'm glad we got pictures before church because during church Pryce hurt his mouth pretty bad...long story short: wobbly toddler...falling...no hands...face...two bottom teeth...blood...white shirt...bow tie...Poor kiddo!  He was in a lot of pain, so (and because of a lot of screaming) we left church a little early.

Later that day (after meds and naps for the boys) we got to visit with some friends who are about to have a little baby boy and Chance's sister and her family.

Such a fun weekend! Thanks to Patty and John for being such great hosts!

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and were able to take a moment and remember the real "reason for the season" (Easter season that is...).
