After breakfast and nap we headed out to Nana and Grampy's for Easter dinner with Gramma, Great Gram, Uncle Rick and Aunt Barbara. Caroline made quick work of her basket and was playing all over the house. George had more fun finding Easter eggs there and socializing. At one point, Alan let George peek over the rafters except George grabbed on and wouldn't let go. It took a few minutes and some help from Grampy but he finally let go. Daddy's and George's arms were tired! After a long weekend of birthday and Easter celebrations we headed home and to bed. Alan was headed out the next day for work in Missouri and we had a busy week ahead of us!

Caroline woke up bright and early Easter morning for round two, (3? 4?) of festivities. We made her wait until George woke up and then the baskets were fair game. It was fun watching Caroline since she knows the traditions now; baskets, finding eggs, breakfast, etc. and watching George pick up the whole "goodies in the basket" concept very quickly! I remember having to encourage Caroline at his age and even older to look for things, etc. Lots of fun! Somehow one egg went missing and even almost a month later we haven't found it. None of the dogs looked guilty and there has never been a trace or smell of it so I guess the Easter bunny took that one for himself?
Caroline quickly munching on some jelly beans from her eggs :)
George loved finding Cheerios inside his eggs
Yay! A super soft bunny to cuddle!

Bendable bunny that has become his fav
Woohoo!!! Tinkerbelle toothbrush!
George trying to open the real egg to get Cheerios out :)
She's getting pretty good at finding the eggs!

Caroline's birthday was the day before Easter and there was a great Easter egg hunt going on at Snug Harbor Farms. We figured it would be a fun activity in between the presents and celebrations. It was extremely windy that day, but fun nonetheless. Caroline and George found lots of eggs, got to meet some ducks, chickens, a bunny and a couple of ponies. Even with piles of snow to climb over, there were eggs to be found! We'll definitely be back next year, lets just hope it's warmer :)

Saturday morning Caroline woke up and was five. 5? FIVE! I still can't believe we have a five year old and it's been almost a month! We celebrated by hanging some crepe paper from her doorway to make coming out of her room fun and then only she received some funfetti pancakes with whipped cream and a cherry. Then, she opened George's gift and Gramma's gift. Honey the horse and an Anna dress from Disney World that Caroline had coveted. After gifts we had a little brunch because I had to complete one for the blog and what better day than Caroline's birthday. Once work was over we bundled up and headed out to an Easter egg hunt. Came home and relaxed and headed out to dinner at The Steakhouse. The wait was extremely long but both kids managed not to implode! We had a great dinner, came home and had cake and ice cream and opened up some more presents! We were pretty pooped after the kids went to bed but there was no time for relaxing. We had to prepare for the Easter bunnys arrival!

She specifically wanted it "naked" with no frosting on the sides :)
Dark, but ah well :)
Patiently waiting for it to be sliced
