Teacher's Lounge & Another School

These two really didn't thrill them. Perhaps because I am counting them going to one another's schools...or because the Teacher's Lounge was empty...either way...

Bay thinks that the list should include more 'fun stuff' like boat rides, train rides, and construction sites. I'll keep that in mind...

Easter Dinner

We wound up this busy day at Grandma and Grandpa's, multi-tasking by towing along Uncle Dan and Aunt Christina. Due to rain, the egg hunt was moved inside, and the boys had fun searching for the candy and money filled eggs (the Easter Bunny is in a higher tax bracket there), they were most impressed with the Thomas the Tank Engine filled baskets!

After setting up the tracks and testing the engines to make sure the big rabbit got the good stuff, we gorged ourselves on a salmon dinner, topped off with Hayden's rendition of Happy Birthday to Grandpa Bill and a mountain of chocolate ice cream for Bayley.

Think they'll sleep tonight? Or did all the sugar counteract all the activity?

On to the Annual McCauley Easter Brunch

Our boys love McCauley gatherings because until Eddie moved here, Sean was the only cousin they had! He's older, but very sweet and patient with the boys, plus he is all boy like ours so has an amazing collection of Legos and K'Nex.

While everyone else feasted on ham, garlic brussel sprouts, roasted asparagus, and salads, Bayley ate as many crescent rolls as he could jam in his mouth and Hayden had a great time dropping jelly beans in his water cup.

Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

Before all our neighborhood friends headed out for their family festivities, we had a great egg hunt! It was the cutest thing. No fighting over eggs or worrying what is in them.

Hayden fit as many eggs in his basket as he could, but Bayley had a bigger basket and therefore more eggs. But, their friend Brandon thought to bring a bucket. Genius kid got the most eggs that way! It helped that he was focused. Hayden and Reid were more interested in opening the eggs than collecting them for a while.

The festivities ended with Hayden finding a snail. Of course he finds all things creepy fascinating. Bayley and Brandon thought the sanil was neat, but didn't care to touch it. Hayden found a kindred spirit in Reid though. He at least touchedthe shell.

Hayden on a horse!

Yes, I know it's not exactly news since Hayden loves horses. BUT, usually he sits on Jammer who nothing fazes. This time he was on Chinook, who is young, but he was absolutely perfect! No wonder this kid loves horses!
