What a beautiful Easter weekend! The Easter celebration started the week before with Palm Sunday. This is a very sweet service at our church where the children get to walk down the aisle waving palms. The next week the festivities began! Friday night we colored Easter eggs and made Easter cookies. Saturday morning it was a little rainy, so we were a little worried the Easter egg hunt at the country club was going to be cancelled, but the rain held off and it was a beautiful day. We hunted for eggs and ate a delicious brunch. This year we decided to go to the 8am service because the other 2 services are just so packed. I also thought it would be easier because we could wake the kids up and head to church before seeing what the Easter bunny brought. It worked out great! After church, we headed home to see what the Easter bunny brought. The kids ate way too much candy and then we headed to the Konops for Easter brunch, more Easter egg hunts, more Easter egg coloring, and Easter cookies. It was a beautiful weekend!
Beckett hunted like a champ! As soon as he found out there was candy in the eggs, there was no stopping him!
The country club separates the kids into groups based on age, so I stayed with Beckett and Greg ran after Jackson. Jackson is certainly an egg hunting pro!
After the hunt, we headed inside for brunch. They had a magician walking around with the biggest bunny I have ever seen. Beckett loved the bunny! He wanted to pet the bunny the entire brunch.
After the brunch, the kids headed outside to play some games while the adults enjoyed another cup of coffee. They had egg races, noodle races, and ended with tug of war.
Easter Sunday! Since we went to the early service, we didn't have to wait in a massive long to get a picture with the cross. We were able to get several :)
After church, we headed home to see what the Easter bunny brought. It did not take Beckett long to find his basket.
Beckett's basket was filled with candy, some new planes, and power rangers! He LOVES his power rangers!!
The meadows was filled with more eggs than you could imagine. There was a special golden egg filled with $5 and Jackson found it!
Jackson worked very hard on this egg and named him "Happy". Happy is still in our refrigerator. Just when I thought he had forgotten about him and I could throw him away, he checked to make sure he was still there. :)
After the egg dyeing, the kids burned off some energy swimming. As if the kids had not had enough sugar, it was time to decorate the cookies :)
