More Easter Celebrating

Our Easter festivities continued with another egg hunt in our new neighborhood on Saturday morning before Easter.  The neighborhood hunt took place in a cow pasture on the farm across the road from our neighborhood.  It was actually a pretty spot beside a pretty little pond.  I stayed in the car with Baby Mattox because it was pretty windy outside.  After the boys finished their hunt (no candy this time), we went to eat a late breakfast/early lunch before going to pay a special visit.

Brody made a pretty green one that matched his shirt.  I love the look of pretty colored eggs.

Cousin Grady and Brody enjoyed watching the eggs turn colors.  Grady kept trying to put the already dyed ones back into the dye.

Sweet cousins.  Grady is really growing up so fast and has been talking so well.

Mr. Independent Brody likes to do it by himself.

Pretty eggs.  Evan liked the one that looks kind of like camouflage green.

Grady is very interested in babies and kept coming up to look at Mattox and saying "baby" and pointing.  He loved getting to hold him.

Big smiles for baby cousin Mattox.

  1. A very special day indeed. The boys were definitely wearing the right color of green for the egg hunt in such a lovely green location. OK, maybe it wasn't lush and green, but it was definitely pale green with the promise of being lush in a few more months.

    Mattie's flowers and bunny are so pretty. I'm glad you got the chance to all be together at Easter time.

    1. It was a special day, and although I know we probably needed to get more things accomplished this weekend, I could not miss the opportunity of visiting my sweet girl and "introducing" her little brother to her. He will grow up knowing his sister. Yes, the grass isn't quite lush and green yet, but it is getting there. Our front yard here may never be lush and green because it has become so muddy with all the rain lately. Sigh.
