Easter 2011

I think I'm about the last blog mom out there to do our Easter post. We've had all kinds of things going on around here including a terrible storm last night with threats of tornadoes. It was the first time since I have lived around Waco that I have actually had to bunker down because of tornadoes. All of this was going down around 9:30 last night and our tiny laundry room is the most interior room of our house so we made a pallet with blankets and pillows for the girls to try to keep them sleeping through most of it. We pulled the girls out of bed and headed for the laundry room and the pallet didn't work out all that great. Addison and Reagan ended up falling asleep on me and Baylee was just rolling around relentlessly on the pallet all by herself. Luckily, the storm passed very quickly, so we weren't stuck in that hot room for a really long time. We put the girls back to bed and Reagan was the only one who had a really hard time going back to sleep.
So anyway, on to the Easter events of last weekend. We started the weekend by heading up to Gunter on Good Friday. Saturday morning we took the girls to this neat sandbox and splash pad at a new outdoor shopping center in Allen across from the outlet mall on Highway 75. Missy and Mackenzie met us there after CJ's football game to enjoy some fun in the sand and lunch at The Purple Cow.

The girls had a great time! Such a great place to take the kids, I must say. I wish we had something like that around here.
Later that day, the girls were getting very restless playing in the house, so we headed outside to check out Pop's tractor and play in the pasture talking to the horses.

Just sittin in the bucket of the tractor :)

On Sunday, we had a great lunch with the whole Chambers family and did an egg hunt in front of Grammy and Pop's house.

Grammy made the adorable dresses the girls are wearing, they were too cute to pass up for our egg hunt at their house

Our family, minus baby #4 coming in August!

The girls had so much fun hunting eggs with all of their cousins, but all Baylee was concerned with was what she found in the eggs. :)

All the cousins! So fun! Reagan would not release her basket. Brent and I had to pry it from her mega-grip, and truthfully it took both of us to get it away from her when the egg hunt was over.

After all of this, we headed to West to see Gran and Grandaddy for our second egg hunt. When we got there, they had Easter baskets for the girls and a BIG Easter surprise for them as well. Check these out! The girls LOVE them!

Checkin out the eggs :)

The girls had dinner and then they were about pooped by the time we headed home. A long day but so much fun celebrating Easter with our family!
