On Sunday we went to Cincinnati to celebrate Easter with my family. We had a beautiful sunny day, so the kids were able to hunt for eggs outside this year. Avery did a whole lot better at this easter egg hunt than last week's... here are just a few pictures:

Easter Egg Hunt

Yesterday we went to an Easter egg hunt and brunch with Holly and Nathan, and Dave and Amy, and their kids. Here's us at brunch (minus Abe, who was taking the picture):
After brunch we headed upstairs to see the Easter Bunny and try to get some pictures. Avery was happy to wave and say hi to the Easter Bunny as long as she was a safe distance away. But, as soon as Abe inched his way closer, Avery got panicky and started yelling and pointing with urgency away from the bunny. The bunny tried desperately to win her favor by playing peek-a-boo, but to no avail.

Grant and Grace did much better:

And Collin sat on the Easter Bunny's lap for a little bit, but eventually decided Avery had the right idea:
After torturing the bunny with endless photo ops, we headed outside for the Easter egg hunt. Avery got a late start as we were trying to change her into different shoes, so most of the eggs were gone by the time she could fight her way to front of the pack. I'm quite sure she didn't really know why she was hanging out in the mulch, and why we kept pointing at eggs on the ground and in the bushes, but she was happy about it all the same. She only managed to get one egg, but she could have cared less. Who cares about Easter eggs when you can climb up and down on a curb over and over again?

All in all it was a fun day with good friends, and lots of good memories :)

Card Swap

Just a quickie post...Here's a card I made for a card swap I'm going to tonight. This was a lift from Jennifer on the Scrappin' Mamas message board (couldn't find the post on your blog though, Jennifer, to show the original...sorry). I used the swiss dot Cuttlebug folder to emboss the front of the card, and then scalloped the edge. I used the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge to make the letter b. The pink cardstock is from Archivers and the green PP is Jillibean Soup. The PP on the inside of the card is My Little Shoebox (just a thin strip on the edge that I also scalloped). I bought the little tag at Staples and stamped "baby" on it. The safety pins are MM and the thread is Bazzil. Thanks for the inspiration Jennifer!
