Easter 2010: Easter Baskets & Egg Hunts

On Easter morning we all woke up early and my mom and I made a couple of breakfast casseroles while my dad and Collin took the dogs to the dog park. After breakfast we discovered a surprise in the living room. The Easter Bunny had come to visit!

As soon as Collin set Keats down and pointed to the basket he sprinted to it and dug inside.

Instantly finding his most favorite treat...MARSHMALLOWS!!


The Easter Bunny was pretty good to Keaton this year, but do you know what's even more fun that a basket full of gifts???

Taking the grass out of the basket and throwing it....

all over the floor!!


After looking through all of his new stuff it was bath time and then nap time (for a little boy who refused to go to bed for Grammy & Grandpa Grizz until 10 pm the night before).
That afternoon we headed up to Justin & Kira's for an Easter celebration.
While the food was being finished up we took the boys outside for their very first Easter egg hunt.
The Easter Bunny had also made a stop by Auntie Kira & Uncle Justin's and there were eggs hidden all over the yard.

Some where on the ground....

Some were in trees....


And some were hidden up high where only Daddy's could reach.


The boys trotted around the yard for quite some time and found all of the eggs.

By the looks on their faces, I'd say it was a success!

After the egg hunt we headed inside and stuffed ourselves on ham, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, calico beans, 7-layer salad, stuffed mushrooms and deviled eggs. Then we finished the dinner with not one but TWO desserts, which were both delicious.
The best part of the day though was spending time with our families, mine, Kira's and Collin's. Being able to celebrate with all of our families together is such a blessing.

Aw...these pictures of Keaton this Easter are so great. It must have been so neat seeing his excitement while opening his Easter basket and hunting for Easter eggs! Looks like a wonderful Easter for all of you, and I'm glad you were able to spend it with the families.
