Happy Late Easter!

I am getting really behind on my blogging once again.  I am just now getting around to posting Easter pictures.  We had a wonderful Easter weekend full of spending time with our family, eating great food, hunting eggs, and praising the Lord for all our blessings. 

Camdyn loves her cousin Cole.  Here she is giving him kisses.  So sweet!

Cole giving the girls a wagon ride outside at Grandma and Grandpa's house.

Camdyn enjoyed playing with the gravel more than finding Easter eggs.  At least this year she wasn't taking a nap during the egg hunt!

Camdyn and Cade hunting Easter eggs.  Notice Cade's cheeks.  He stopped to open every egg, examine what was in it, unwrap it if he could, and pop it into his mouth.  He ate so much candy he actually made himself sick - from the kid who wouldn't eat a little over a year ago!

Camdyn, Brenna, and Cade before church in their cute matching Easter clothes.  Too bad that it is impossible to get all 3 of my kids to look the same direction for a picture!

Jim's side of the family is huge.  He has 11 first cousins (I think I'm right on that).  In my kids generation, there are 14 second cousins plus one more due soon.  When we get together for family celebrations, there are usually over 50 people.  Here are some of the kids taking a ride out to the pasture to look at the cows while the Easter bunny comes.  Now that's pretty country!  Two more dads rode in the back of that truck to hold all the little ones down.

We spent Easter Sunday at my grandma and grandpa's house with my side of the family.  Unfortunately, my camera ran out of battery so I didn't get any pictures.  The kids had a great time hunting eggs for a second time, but the big hit was the pinata.  My mom sometimes gets crazy ideas, and she thought it would be fun to break an Easter pinata.  I told her I had never heard of that before and thought it was a little strange to do on Easter, but the kids loved it!  I guess Nanny knows best. 

As soon as we headed home, all three of the kids were asleep in their car seats.   All that egg hunting (and pinata breaking) was exhausting!
