Show and Tell - Easter

The husband and I went over to his mom's house for Easter breakfast and hunting eggs with our nephews.  G's brother and sister-in-law live with his mom so all holiday mornings are held at her house.  We had a lovely breakfast and then headed out to hunt for eggs with the kids.

The Easter bunny brought the boys matching big wheels in addition to the usual eggs and baskets.  Above is my five year old nephew trying his out.  Below is my 20 month old nephew and me looking for eggs.  Today was one of those days when I was painfully aware that my baby would have been hunting for eggs with her cousin.  My sister-in-law and I were due only days apart so, every now and again (although it seems like it happens more and more lately) when I look at my youngest nephew I have those "she would have been..." thoughts for a moment.  
I love both my nephews, but the little one has a special place in my heart.

After breakfast, the husband had to go to work, so I hung out and played with the kids for a while.  Then I headed home, took a very long nap, sat out in the sun and read my book and now I am getting ready to go out to dinner with my parents.  It was a pretty nice Easter.

Go see what the other kids are sharing at Mel's 


  1. I hope dinner with your parents was nice. I bet the egg hunt was really fun!

  2. The pictures really capture the fun that you people had...I hope the rest of the day also went well with you.

    Painful reminders, yes! Talk about them...happens, you know! Every time you will see that young nephew of yours you will be reminded.

    I hope something good comes our way soon!

  3. The Easter bunny must have used an extra-large basket this year to transport two big wheels!

  4. Lucky boys getting big wheels for Easter. I hope you had a fabulous dinner out.
