Easter 2011: He is Risen!!!

He is Risen Indeed!
We spent the morning in Walla Walla, the kids opened up their Easter baskets from Dave and I when they woke up. I went very simple this year (and I am so glad I did because they were both so spoiled by both sets of grandparents I don't know why I even bothered getting them anything!) and went to the dollar store. I spent $12 total on Easter baskets and decorations for Easter breakfast. The boys got a basketball Easter basket, camo sunglasses, eggs filled with fruit snacks, a ball and new spiderman toothbrushes. I opted out of candy as I knew they would get more than they needed today! My parents came over with more Easter treats and even some Easter treats for Dave and I (I love that I still get an Easter basket even though I'm 30!). I made a really yummy Creme Brulee French Toast (I got it off of Gina's Skinny Recipes - her recipes are delicious and low in fat and calories), along with strawberries and cool whip, my mom brought over fruit skewers and dip and we had a very nice breakfast. We all went to church after that and then Dave and I with the kids headed to Tri-Cities for Easter lunch.
 Dave and I at his parent's house after finishing lunch. The food was delicious and it was fun visiting with everyone and relaxing for a bit.
Jax slept for the first couple hours we were there, Dave finally went in to wake him up and he ended up falling back asleep.
Colt and Camryn played hard the entire time they were together. These two are hilarious together. Memah and Poppi had given them Easter baskets and they spent most the afternoon playing with all their toys.
 We had a separate Easter egg hunt for the little kids (yes all the "adults" also had an Easter egg hunt, its pretty intense so I opted not to participate this year, don't want to go into labor just yet). Dave and Kenzie had a competition going between Colt and Camryn who could get the most eggs. I don't think Colt and Cam realized that there was a competition but their parents were running after them yelling at them to hurry up and find more eggs:).
Dee Dee helped Jax get his share too. The boys had so much candy today, every time I saw one of them they had candy in their hand or mouth. They both had so much fun playing with their cousins, finding eggs and running around Memah and Poppi's place.
The Easter group!
The entire day was so much fun, it was nice to get to spend it with both set of parents too. It was also nice to get so much help with the boys. The contractions I have been having are really annoying and painful so it was nice to be able to relax and put my feet up and know the boys were still having fun with everyone.
