Technically the twins second easter but the first they really got to enjoy!
Gammy and Granddaddy came up from Raleigh for the weekend and we did lots of fun things!
First- on Saturday we went to an Easter Egg Hunt. We had done some practice rounds with the twins so they sort of understood they were supposed to pick up eggs and put them in their buckets. They put all the toddlers (with parents) into a little gated area with hay and then let them get as many as they could in 10 minutes. It took a little coaxing but Luke and Graham did great! Then we met the Easter bunny and of course got some fun photos with him as well as the other Easter decor. Then (which may have been the best part of the day really) we found some swings! The boys had never experienced swings before and let's just say they were a hit! As always Luke was a little skeptical but then loved it and Graham loved it right from the start.
After the hunt we headed over to The Farmhouse to eat some brunch. The twins got to snack on all kinds of things while they ate their normal lunches. Big fans of biscuits, eggs, bacon, potatoes - you name it, they totally ate it.
Then lots of napping! After we played more with our eggs- now that they understands putting them in the bucket and all.
Sunday we headed to a nearby church in our cute Easter outfits that Gammy had brought. We all sat in the back just in case we needed to pop out- but the twins were really good and sat through the whole service! Music was their favorite part but Luke also enjoyed making faces at the little girl sitting behind us. It was very cold for Easter but we had a good day anyway. The Easter bunny brought the twins some books, shovel and buckets, animals, candy, and more bath toys. They LOVED their new books as well as the other things and maybe the candy a little too much ha.
Easter was a lot of fun - and now that they are getting older and understanding things better I think holidays in general are going to be a lot more entertaining!
