Here is a post with gratuitous pictures from the Easter happenings around here and with family.

Not sure what this is about, or what that hat is about

Carson likes the hat though.

Hey look! They're all smiling and looking at the same time!

Emmett's doing this leaning in thing in pictures lately. It's really cute, but he doesn't smile when he does it. I think he's trying to put on the face of serene love or some such.

Easter eggs

I like Avery's magically appearing invisible guy.

What's funny here is a squirrel went by and they all had to jump up and look. Next thing I know, Avery's telling his brothers a story about how squirrels attack people. Great. But Avery is all seriousness as he explains how once a squirrel almost attacked Uncle Kevin. Okay... So there he is, being extreme Mr. Serious telling this story that sounds like it should have a evil soundtrack and a flashy title of "When Squirrels Attack!" and all the while he's wearing his ridiculous St. Patty's hat from school. I couldn't help it, I busted up.

Easter Sunday morning. Being the super duper awesome parents that we are, we made them all get ready for church before they were allowed to go down the stairs to find their baskets. And part of that time was spent discussing what Easter is really all about. BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! Now you have to sit on the stairs nicely so Mom can take your picture too. Mwa ha ha.

Again, with the leaning in thing. His faces doing this crack me up.

So then his brothers decide to get cozy too.

Love the Emmett look away. If only I could get Carson's super shifty eyes to look at the camera for a change.

Easter dinner was at the in-laws of course and this time we were in charge of rolls and stuffing. I like my new basket I used for the rolls.

After dinner Emmett helped himself to a cupcake. I don't know why he's cleaning himself mid-dessert, but it's cute.

Grandma and Papa had a giant basket full of stuff for the grandkids.

Then they had a very small Easter egg hunt. Avery and Carson got those hats from Grandma's basket, but Avery's was definitely too small for him, so later that night we had him give his to Emmett. He was okay with that once we reminded him of the hats he already has.

On the way back home I attempted a self portrait in the moving car with my phone. Half a blurry face later, at least I'm documented as existing this Easter. Travis is too, just not in this blog post.

Back home we had our own Easter egg hunt

Carson, I see one very close to you, do you?

Time to compare.

It was a great Easter, with lots of fun as well as good refreshers on why the day really is special.
