Easter Sunday Funday

We love Easter around here.  Between egg hunting in the morning, church, and the infamous neighborhood parade, it's a fun day for everyone.

To be honest, I kinda forgot about the whole "hide the egg" thing at home.  We did that growing up and it was so fun and when Palmer was little, I put his presents in his basket and then I just plain forgot he can hunt now that he is older.  A friend of mine mentioned it the other day and a light bulb went off, "Oh YEAH.  We hide the eggs at home, too!"  Whoops.

So, that we did.  Both Grace and Palmer had so much fun finding the dozen eggs we had (filled, of course, not hard boiled- gross!)
After a blustery outdoor church service in a tent, we headed over to brunch at the club.  Luckily, the sun came out right after our meal for photos:
This wall is always a fun favorite for photos:
Easter as we know it wouldn't be complete without the neighborhood parade.  Even though this hood isn't technically our home anymore, it's only a mile away and we still treasure the festivities and friends.

Scott Taylor's latest piece of work: The Trojan Bunny from Monty Python. (The poor ears hit a tree and came off mid-route.)

Palmer and Rick's go-cart, the Go-Pro edition.  Palmer got a kid's GoPro and wanted to record the route.  Unfortunately, I looked at his work and he just took stills, not a video.  Next time!
 Grace prefers to watch from the sideline with her chalk and candy.
Such a full weekend between Palmer's fifth birthday and party and Easter, I was kinda dreading the over-scheduled days (mostly because we were all going into the weekend a little under the weather).  Fortunately, the weekend was perfect thanks to relaxing and easy time with friends and family.  We've all had way too much cake and candy, but it's a small price to pay for good times!
