I know Easter was a few weeks ago, but I still wanted to blog about it.  So here it goes...

Ben took off work the Thursday and Friday before Easter and the Monday following so that we could spend some much needed time with Nana and Grumpy.  So we took the kids to school, while Ben and I packed everyone up on Thursday.  It takes a long time to pack up a family of 5 by the way.  The kids didn't want to miss the egg hunts at school, so it was perfect. 
Hunter was ready for his egg hunt with the shark class! :)

Oh and I made, yes I made, this skirt for Maggie out of a dish towel!!!!  Can you believe it?  

Here's the back!  I found it on one of the blogs I like to look at called lil blue boo!  It was so easy. (hello... if I can do it, anyone can!)  You can find out how here.

And I made Hunter a bigger basket.  I should have went ahead and made Maggie a big one too.  I think she got more eggs than anyone! 

And I made Bunny Bait for the kids in Hunter and Maggie's class. (And they brought some extra back home... so I snacked on it all the way to Houston :) shhhh don't tell!)
i got this idea from pintrest by the way. You can check it out here.

So we finally got on the road around 2:30.  The kid slept until we got to Temple!  It was so nice.  Ben and I just talked and caught up.  The quiet was amazing.  We stopped to eat at Temple and then Archer screamed/cried the rest of the way to Houston.  Not so much fun.

We spent Friday just hanging out with family!  It was a great day!  We decided we would hunt Easter eggs on Saturday so that we wouldn't have to try to do it before church on Sunday.  Here are some pictures from our hunt...

The Queen of the egg hunt!  Seriously, she dumped out her basket many, many times! :) I will be making her a bigger basket for next year! 
Sweet boy! :) 

The basket lady, Miss Gracie!!  She is holding 3 baskets in this picture!  Isn't she cute!  We had so much fun playing with her all weekend! 

She was bummed it was over :(  Don't worry we had another hunt on Monday before we left. 

Sunday, we went to Nana and Grumpy's church.  We had never been and although it wasn't our church we liked it.  They don't do worship like we do, so the we jammed out to our church's worships cd on the way home!  I love that my kids love our worship music.  It was a sweet ride!  Then we went out and had a really yummy lunch (4 kids and no melt downs!  it was a great lunch!) and then we all took naps!  

After naps we headed out to the park! 

Okay so we tried to take some pictures and then we played...

Hunter played baseball until he got his first blister.  You would have thought he cut his arm off.  He through a fit like I have never seen.  We got a bandaid when he got home and he was good to go.  Nana also bought him some new batting gloves! :)

Maggie and Gracie had a lot of fun swinging!  

Over all we had a great Easter!  The trips in the car... not so much fun, but it was worth it.  We had a great time with family. 
We love you Nana, Grumpy, Nie-Nie, Gracie and David!!  We can't wait to come back.  And Uncle David... we MISSED you!!!  Next year!!! :)
