Easter 2014

I know I have said this before...but Easter is one of my absolute favorite holidays. It is just such a refreshing weekend spent fellowshipping with family and getting to celebrate our Lord and Savior. I love that it is warmer, things are growing, and summer is just around the bend!

We had an absolutely fantastic week. It was beautiful weather and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves anymore. We spent the majority of the week outside doing fun things!

Last Saturday, Christian had to work, but we went with my family to our church's Easter egg hunt. It was called "Chicken and Eggs" and it was a lot of fun. Aubrey was in a very clingy/shy mood, so I couldn't get much excitement out of her.

I mean she looks down right miserable in this picture, but I promise she had a great time with her cousins.

After the egg hunt, we went to eat lunch at MooYah's which is a new burger place in Baton Rouge. I'm not a big burger person, but my mom had a turkey burger that looked fantastic.
Weston decided to blow out not one, but two diapers on our lunch date. Needless to say, I was a little stressed...had to change both his and my outfit! Here he is just moments before his lunch fiasco! So much for cute Easter outfits, huh Buddy?
On Wednesday, we decided to dye eggs with Bre. She was so excited. Aubrey is very into arts and crafts so anything with paint or stickers is right up her alley. It was storming that night so we had to make it work in the garage...memories don't wait for weather!

On Saturday, we decided to go to another Easter egg hunt put on by a nearby church. We went last year and it was lots of fun. Since Christian didn't get to go to the one at our church, we thought we would go to another so he could experience the fun!  It was absolutely packed. We had to walk about a mile to even get to the event and there was very little shade, so it was direct sun for everyone. The church does an amazing job of putting together such a huge's just overwhelming with all the people!
Aubrey didn't mind the crowds, as long as she got her snowcone!

Weston must have something against Easter egg hunts because right before the big hunt...he straight up blew it out (again). We of course had forgotten the diaper bag (a mile away) so we improvised with napkins and made a bee-line for the car.
Lessons learned: 1.) If you want to ensure a poopy...leave the diaper bag in the car.
 2.) Perhaps Weston needs to go up a size on diapers.
3.) Projectile poop is very dangerous.
He is just so innocent though...
After we made it back to the car and changed Weston Hayes, we decided to leave and get some lunch. We went to eat at our favorite Mexican place and enjoyed our little family over some "Chips and Cheese" as Bre likes to say.
That evening after naps, we went to church and listened to an amazing message from our pastor. He did a fabulous job preaching on the proof of the resurrection from a secular perspective. It was extremely powerful.
On Sunday (Easter morning), we woke up and had breakfast. We gave Bre her basket and let her spend the morning playing with her new goodies. Isn't her basket adorable? My sis made them for the kiddos and I absolutely love them! Bre didn't get much...just a few dollar store finds and some gummy worms. 
Christian cut the grass and I made a cake during naps and then we packed up and headed out to celebrate Easter with Christian's side of the family.
We went to his Nanny's house and it was so much fun. It's a little bit of a drive out to the country but it is so much fun for the little ones. We had an Easter egg hunt, (thankfully Weston spared us a blowout on this particular hunt) dyed eggs, and ate fried fish. We also got to see their horses! It was great to get to relax and spend time with family.

We are so blessed to have such wonderful families to make special memories with. Each memory we make is one that I cherish and hopefully my babies do too.
A few posed pictures just for more memories!

Above all, we are thankful for our Lord and Savior dying on the cross so that we might be free. His resurrection gives us the freedom to live forever in eternity.
Happy Easter Everyone!

  1. It has been a while since I have looked at your blog because my computer crashed and I lost all my bookmarks. Weston has gotten so big and is adorable! I hope you are adjusting well to two. Happy Easter!
