Easter Weekend

We had a great Easter weekend. The sun came out to play and so did our bicycles. We removed Kate's training wheels (something that probably should have happened last year, but oh well.) and away she went. No problems whatsoever!

I love this picture of Carter helping her. So sweet.

Easter Morning we woke to a fabulous surprise. Four little bunnies; one for each kid so we don't fight. (We tried our best to get all females, but rabbits are difficult to sex. Everyone pray that we don't get babies in the next few weeks.)

The kids were SOOOOO excited. They've been begging for a bunny for 2 years now. So we decided to break down and let them have some. They were hilarious when they figured out we got more than one bunny. And they were out of control when they figured out they EACH got a bunny! It was so fun.

Alyssa and Cookie or it might be Clover, she's kind of been trying out both names.

Kate and Thumper. She called it Thin Mint for a little while, but is pretty insistent on Thumper, so Thumper it is.

Halle and Fluffer Nutter. Oh Halle is SO in love!

Carter and Nacho. Nacho is the most active and curious of the bunch. Carter says, "I got the squirt one." But he still adores her.

It was so cute to see Kate and Thumper under the umbrella.

The Umbrellas became a bunny pen for most of the afternoon.

It was beautiful weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate new life and remember our Saviour's Resurrection.

I can't believe that Jarom let you get bunnies! And not only that FOUR bunnies! What a fun Easter surprise! Happy Easter!

You are SUCH a good mom! We'll have to come over to play and meet your new bunnies. Pets are so good for kids, you did the right thing.

there is going to be some major jealousy when a certain daughter of mine sees those babies. Fun, fun!
