The Easter Bunny stopped by. He dropped off some neat Super Hero books, a Veggie Tales coloring book, a Captain America action figure...
...and one red Angry Bird bunny. Matthew's new favorite. He's snuggling with it in bed at this very moment.
Noah's basket wasn't as full, but he was just as impressed with his haul.
New bath books to chew on were just what the doctor ordered.
There was a group meeting over Matthew's new Matchbox car set.
I wasn't invited to the meeting. So I had my breakfast - cheese babka and coffee. That's all I need on Easter morning.
In the afternoon we headed over to my parents house for Easter Part 2.
This year included an egg hunt with Matthew's best pals.
Alex helped all the little ones collect the 5,000 eggs that my parents put out on the lawn.
Even Noah got into the action.
And he was quite happy with the two eggs he "found".
Matthew left the lawn a happy camper too.
We tried for a cousins picture in front of the swings. This is the best we got.
Then it was back inside for yummy desserts and a chorus of Happy Birthday for my niece Annalise who turned 3 earlier in the week.
Later on, back at home, Matthew took a few trips down the slide and a few minutes on the swing to wind down the day.
Then both Matthew and Noah lost their minds from a combination of no naps, lots of sugar (for Matthew) and lots of activity. Bedtime was a little earlier tonight. But that's how you know just how good the day really was.
