Easter weekend

Since Amelia had off school for Good Friday, the kids and I went down to Becky's house to play with Natalie and Noah for the day.  I didn't take any photos, so if you want to see what we did, you'll have to read Becky's blog.

Saturday was a nice day at Grandma and Grandpa's house, full of buckwheat pancake eating:

drawing with chalk (she wanted to give herself a blue beard):

riding the fire truck, which Megan enjoyed - the frowny face is because I wanted to take a picture:

and playing with Aunt Julie:

After church on Sunday, we tried to get a few family photos.  Aunt Julie had the impossible task of trying to get a nice smiling photo of my family; even bribing the girls with chocolate Easter bunnies didn't work to get them to smile nicely.

We didn't have much better luck with Grandma and Grandpa and the grandkids:

We did a little better with the older cousins.  Natalie is by far the best smiler for photos!

Nathaniel smiled, though!  He's wearing the suit that Becky bought for Noah for her brother-in-law's wedding.  It just happened to fit Nathaniel perfectly this Easter - isn't he adorable?

The kids had a great time finding Easter eggs!  The Easter bunny hid one color egg for each child, to make it fair for little Megan and to make sure that each kid got the same amount of eggs.  It worked out really nicely, except that the Easter bunny forgot to count exactly how many eggs he hid for each child, and so they looked and looked and looked for the 20th eggs, but couldn't find them.

After lunch, the kids hid Easter eggs for Aunt Julie, Grace and Ben:

And a few miscellaneous photos:
