Happy Easter!!!

Deacon woke us up today bright and early... the Easter Bunny had left a trail of eggs from his room leading downstairs - and this boy was NOT going to wait for his brother to wake up.  So Damien and I (and Grandma, of course) drug ourselves out of bed to hunt for baskets... thankfully the bunny knows we are all very impatient in this house and chose not to hide the baskets in very difficult spaces- so we were able to have some good play time before Zac woke up.  (oh, and... when did Easter become a mini-version of Christmas??? I think I need to check myself a bit more next year... this was ridiculous)

Zac woke up and LOVED putting the trail of Easter eggs into his basket... it was his favorite part of the morning, by far.  The first basket he found was his guitar and drum... and it was the last basket he found- because the instruments trumped all other baskets... he was genuinely NOT interested in anything else for a good hour- all he wanted was the guitar and drums.

The boys loved the bubbles they got and we spent a good portion of the morning outside blowing bubbles- Zac really does not understand the concept whatsoever... and thankfully Deacon was a good sport and helped him a lot.  Damien got a mento and diet coke science experiment- which we all thought was pretty funny... though it ended WAY too quickly- and we only had one pack of mentos and one thing of diet coke.

Easter brunch was spent in the company of our good friends, Ed & Logan... we decided to forgo cooking and fancy buffets, and hit up John's Incredible Pizza company.  The kids had an absolute blast- and by the time we got home Zac was so overly tired... the poor kid is still not feeling great and we ran him rampant all morning... but he was refusing to nap, so the rest of the afternoon/evening was spent putting a great amount of effort into entertaining Zac.

All in all, we had a pretty nice day... the spoiling definitely does not help with the attitudes around our house- and I need to remind myself of that next year.  To my credit, a lot of the spoiling is the result of Grandma being here... and who am I to tell a Grandma that she can't spoil her boys?  I guess on that note I'm just going to have to suck it up...

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend...

Zac has an obsession with washing his hands... We have to keep this chair in this spot or else he will panic that he does not have immediate access to the sink.  Thankfully he's gotten better at starting and stopping the water- so we don't have to get up to help every.single.time. (which tends to be multiple times an hour).  I can't complain, though... I'm sure there are worse habits.
