Easter Weekend

We had a busy Easter weekend. Luckily we got one day of sunshine out of the weekend so we got to have one egg hunt outside. Great meals and lot of treats! Eric overindulged himself in chocolate like no other because he had given it up for Lent. Crazy boy has been eating chocolate non-stop for the past couple of days making up for lost time! Carter may have his sweet tooth, you give him one piece of candy and then he crys when you won't give him more!

Another Easter egg hunt at Grandma Carol's and Grandpa Nick's

Grandpa Nick (Everyone says Nolan looks like a mix of my dad and Eric)

Grandma Georgia & Grandpa Robin with all of the grandbabies!

Eric and cousin Harper kicking back with the bunny ears

Cousin Piper was fast at finding the eggs!

First year that Carter was really interested in finding the eggs.

The boys were spoiled this weekend with Easter baskets from us and their grandparents.

Enjoying the outdoors

We may live in the sticks but seeing Mt. Rainer on a sunny day like this makes it worth it.
Seeing our shadows for the first time in a long time.

We took a walk to the bakery to enjoy the sunshine.

Nolan got to give his shades a spin for the first time this season. Carter won't keep his on his head.

Another day at the park (minus the sun. . . typical) The boys love to be outside. Carter actually throws a fit when we have to come inside.

Look at that look!

We heart Texas

Our last night in Texas was spent at a beautiful place right on the water. We ate mouth watering food, slipped our "adult juice", watched the sunset and our boys being the best of friends.

My sweet little Nolan hanging with Mommy while the big boys played in the sand.
Eric was determined to drive until the end of the island and so we did, and here it is. The road stops here.

We went to the playground one day and Carter had a blast. He buried himself in the rocks and was covered in dirt.

Carter and Daddy using swim diapers as hats.

This little ham bone was so proud of his new outfit. He was working it where ever we went!
One of the many crazy dinners out with a two year old and 7 month old. Notice the table cloth folded up because Carter took an entire bowl of sauce and dumped it all over the white table cloth. Opps!
Enjoying the view from our room. We watched the sun rise and set every day. I want to go back . . . now!

Texas, we will be back. I think we have even considered moving there. Anyone want to join us?

Discovering sea weed

Loving the sun and the pool

Building sand castles with Daddy

Two little beach bums

Heading down to the beach. . . again!

Our schedules have been thrown out the window and start each day without a plan, we are truly enjoying our little vacation. We are constantly lathering our bodies in sunscreen but we all have a little red tinge of color in our skin. Counting calories and working out has not taken part in this vacation. We have had ice cream in the middle of the day and not even thought twice about doing it again. This place is absolutely beautiful and I love soaking up all this time with my beautiful family.
