Happy Easter! He is risen!
To start off our fun Easter weekend I took Irelyn to the Easter egg hunt at Myrick park on Saturday. It was packed! We got there right before it started. Luckily, Grandma Trinie registered us. Irelyn participated in the 0-3 hunt and got lots of chocolate eggs. It was fun, but over in about 5 minutes. We listened for the winners of the drawings and met a real bunny! We missed winning the bike by 1 number. It was a ticket drawing, so that means that the people in front of my mom in line to register won. So close!
Since it was at Myrick we went down to Kids Coulee to play afterwards. Irelyn would NOT let go of her bucket of candy. We would ask her "Do you want to go down the slide?" and she would respond "Yes, with my bucket." "Do you want to swing?" "Yes, with my bucket."
On Easter Sunday we got dressed up and went to church. Grandma Shari came over with goodies before church. After church it was off to Great Grandma Betty's in Westby. Irelyn got yet another birthday celebration since we hadn't had one yet with my extended family. She also hunted eggs inside at Great-Grandma's. Then, down to Grandma Trinie's for more Easter gifts.
We love Easter! Unfortunately Lyla ended up getting the cold we all have had, but she is handling it like a champ!
