We had a great Easter this year.  I was so happy Bennett was able to hear the story of why we celebrate Easter a lot this year.  Between his Sunday school, preschool, and class at my Bible study he heard it numerous times.  It made it easier for me to explain the story of Easter with him and even though some of it still went over his head I loved hearing him talk about Jesus and His resurrection.  A 4 year olds perspective on things like this are funny!

We started off the week making resurrection rolls.  If you aren't familiar with these you should google  them or look it up on Pinterest.  They are a great activity to do with kids to give them a visual of the empty tomb.  Again some of this went over Bennett's head but I feel like he can't hear this story enough, plus they tasted really good!

Having a good time baking!
Also when did my kid start to look like he is 8 years old??!!

Then we dyed eggs.  We waited for Walker to go down for a nap and Bennett and I did this together.  Walker would have made the biggest mess so maybe next year he can get in on the fun!

On Good Friday Bennett had school and his class had a party and an egg hunt.  It was raining that day so we missed the egg hunt because they did it early to avoid the rain, but got there in time for the party.  It was fun for the kids and Walker acted like he owned the class room.  Any questions I had about him being ready for preschool were answered for me, he will be just fine!

On Saturday we went up to Jeremy's parents house to spend the day with them, Josh, Tamara and Carder.  With all the stuff I brought up there I totally forgot my camera so I missed out on pictures of all the fun they had.  We had such a great day with them and the kids had fun playing together.  The boys got spoiled by Gigi and Papa Daddy and came home with loads of candy and toys.  

Easter Sunday we went to church and afterwards we put Walker down for a nap and once he was up we headed to my sister's house to eat dinner and let the kids have an Easter egg hunt.  They had a great time with each other!

Checking out their baskets

Sweet brothers!

Good cop, Bad cop!

These boys love sunglasses

Handsome boys!

Me and B

Real life folks!  It is hard getting a good picture with these guys.

After bribing them with M&Ms we finally got a decent picture

Love my babies!

Love these 4 kids so much!

This guy figured out how to hunt eggs very fast

Walker ended up finding the most eggs out of all the kids and we had to take some from him and give them to the big kids.

Playing with their bubble guns they got from Pop Pop

They love bubbles!!  Pop Pop always gives the best gifts.

It was such a great weekend spent with our family.  We are so lucky and blessed to be surrounded by amazing family!
