Our Easter 2017

We celebrated all week with several fun activities through church and school.  Our first egg hunt was on Wednesday night at our church, and there were also inflatables and other fun games and treats.  Then, Brody had a fun school easter egg hunt in which all the kindergartners hunted for easter eggs with their sight words and number words on them.  It was so cute and educational too.  On Saturday, our family headed down to Jekyll Island to take our Spring family pictures and then to enjoy some more beach time.  On Sunday, the boys received some Easter treats in their baskets, and we enjoyed a great Easter service at church.  It was all a little tiring but lots of fun.

Daddy and Mattox get ready to hunt Easter eggs.  Our "new" real life (former blog) friends joined us for the egg hunt so Mattox got to hunt with little Veronica.

Mattox got the hang of things quickly this year although he preferred for Daddy to carry the basket.

Yay for eggs!

Miss Veronica was such a big girl hunting eggs by herself with her mommy watching.

Mattox was so proud of his finds.

Sweet Caroline hunted with Brody and her big brother Oliver.

I did get one shot of Brody and Caroline together.  Brody was too busy trying to show off his eggs to hunt.

Oliver hunted with his Daddy.

Brody found lots of eggs considering he spent a lot of time looking at them and showing them off.

Brody enjoyed some inflatables too.

Evan enjoyed the Hungry Hippo inflatable.

Mattox did not love the inflatable even though big brother joined him to try to make him happy.

The slide was not a hit either.

Evan got farther on the rock climbing wall than he ever has before.

And little Oliver was very brave climbing too.  He is younger than Brody but much more adventurous.

He also attempted the Hungry Hippo game and just wasn't long enough to reach the balls in the middle. 

Brody's Kindergarten Egg Hunt

Hunting for his sight word eggs.

He found them all very quickly and turned them in to his teacher.

It was pretty hot outside so the kids enjoyed going inside to cool off and eat a sweet treat.

Lots of eggs for all the kindergartners.  The next hunt was for their number words.

Showing off his finds.  Mommy attempted to get him to hold the full carton for a picture the first time, and he dropped all of the eggs and had to put them back in where the belong.  They had the words written in their egg carton to match to the eggs.

Some special Easter treats awaited the boys on Easter morning.

The boys were all happy with their chocolate and treats.

Daddy read the Easter story while the boys enjoyed some chocolate.

Grayson received some books and a stuffed sock monkey bunny.

He was the cutest bunny of all! 
We enjoyed a little trip down to Jekyll Island on Saturday to take our Spring family pictures, and the boys enjoyed getting to play on the beach for Easter.  The weather was perfect!

Jekyll Island was originally privagely owned by some of America's wealthiest families as a private retreat.  Later, it was sold to the state of Georgia and is still primarily a state park.  You do have to pay a small admission to get on the island, but the amenities are very nice.  You can also stay on the island in hotels and private residences.

Mattox loves his beach time.

I think Grayson is becoming a beach bum too.  I think we will enjoy being so close to the beach this summer.

Playing with Daddy in the water.  I love his sweet happy face.

Sweetest boy in the world.

He gets more brave everytime we go to the beach.

Evan and Brody are the best of buddies boogie boarding together.  I feel better when they are together knowing they will look out for one another.

They caught some good waves.

Playing in the "mud" is the best.

I know I could do a comparison shot of Grayson and Brody just like these wearing the same hat and outfit.  I just love that sweet face!
