Easter Events

I hope everyone who celebrates Easter had a fun one! Ours was pretty quiet but fun. We are slowly going through our moving checklist (which is still very, very long) so rather than have to worry about preparing a big meal or a lot of events, I called the weekend a no-cook weekend and we just relaxed and checked things off our list with a few Easter events thrown in there for the kids.

Saturday the base had an Easter Egg hunt and carnival type event. We went to the Easter egg hunt 2 years ago,

aww they were so tiny!

This year, things were a little different...

Ben was big enough that he really got into the egg hunt too.

Afterwards, we checked out the rides and fun, but the wind was wild and the lines were long so we didn't last long.

Then we proceeded to clean the walls of the house and start going through the kids toys...ughhh...moving....

Easter morning the kids got to wake up to some treats from the Easter bunny. Squirt guns (very popular on our street), bubbles (classic), a new toddler bible, and a little bit of candy.


 They just liked to make a mess with all of the easter grass...that is still all over my living room despite several attempts to clean it all up.

We went to church then had brunch on base. We went to the mother's day brunch there a few years ago and it was really nice. Easter was very similar, lots of good food, nice decorations, not super crowded, although we went as soon as it started to squeeze in bunch before nap time so it might have picked up later in the day. We tried to get a family picture, but it was hard enough to get a picture of all 3 kids together.

We also planned out our cross county route, booked some hotels and made plans to stay with some friends so I'm starting to feel a little bit more prepared for this cross country roadtrip! A to just get the house ready, and the packing, and then figuring out the housing situation when we get there. Ok, so there's still a lot to do ;)

Happy Easter everyone!
