We started by dying Easter eggs, which was great fun. Madelyn started coloring on them, then discovered she could use the crayon like a chisel to break the shell and eat the egg inside. Needless to say, Maddy didn't really dye any of the eggs we gave her but DID have a face full of hard boiled yolk.
Then we headed to church. We went to the service before the one I was playing drums for so we could all sit as a family and I could help with our wiggly kiddos. Patrick did awesome through the whole service and sat surprisingly still, quietly asking lots of questions. I spent most of the service outside with Madelyn watching her be fascinated with the big fountain and run around in the perfect weather.
So, thank you to the family that was able to make it. Thank you for bringing so much awesome food and spending the day together. And thank you to Abbie and Mollie who are always so generous and take pictures with our camera at things like this so Angie and I can both be involved with helping the kids. It really does mean a lot and you guys capture wonderful memories for us we would otherwise miss.
Here's a slideshow of all the pictures from Easter. Or you can check them all out at once in the gallery.
