As I mentioned on Friday, we spent Easter weekend in Wichita this year. On Saturday morning, we took the boys to visit the Easter Bunny at the mall. We hadn't had a chance to do that with Easter's early date this year, so it was the perfect opportunity. We arrived shortly after 9am, the Bunny's start time per the mall's website, but turns out he didn't arrive until 10am. We hung out with the rest of the mall walkers and wasted too many quarters on old gumballs, trains, and runts.
Because we had been waiting so long, we were obviously first in line, and the picture people threw in a few free Easter greeting cards. As for the Bunny, Holden wasn't a fan. He didn't cry, but he also wasn't thrilled to be sitting on his lap.
Later on Saturday, we went to Craig's sister Monica's house to dye Easter eggs, eat Mexican, and watch the KU game. Craig prefers not to talk about the rest of the night (KU's loss), but the Easter egg decorating was a success! This was Holden's first time dying eggs and he seemed to know exactly what to do, minus when he tried to drink the dye.
Yesterday, we woke to a ground covered in snow. That's right. SNOW. Like 2 to 3 inches of it! This is a picture my sister-in-law took yesterday morning at a Wichita park. Completely insane if you ask me, especially when later in the day we were outside without coats.
Family came over around 12:45 (Brantley asked alllll morning "When are my cousins coming??"), and after lunch, the nine grandkids got their Easter baskets from Grandma and Papa.
Then we headed outdoors for an Easter egg hunt. Again, Holden knew exactly what to do and at one point, he started fighting Brantley over an egg!
We headed home in the late afternoon and still had to celebrate our little Easter when we got there. However, late bedtimes and a busy weekend meant for some pretty tired and cranky kids.
I bribed them with Easter candy for one decent photo on our porch. And to my surprise, it **sort of** worked!
That takes care of our Easter weekend. I hope everyone had a great holiday!
