Easter To the Fourth Power

I never realized Easter was a family get-together kind of holiday until this year. The weekend kicked off on Friday night with pizza at Bumpa and Kathy's, and egg-dying at Uncle Chuck's (because he has two tables!)

Cousins Nicholas, Chloe, Hailey and Tayla--ready to dye eggs




Cody got into it, too


The dying bonanza continued on Saturday afternoon at Grandma Max's house!

Most of Nicholas' eggs featured 'scary' bugs and monsters colored with crayons before they were dyed lovely shades of pastel green, blue and orange

Chloe dug the sticker and tattoo decorations

Grandma Max was in her element!

Beautiful, bright eggs

Beautiful, bright cousins!

Max and Bill hosted an Easter Egg Extravaganza and Easter lunch for all of us early Sunday afternoon.

Lauren made it back from Forks just in time to join in

Daddy, Lauren and Uncle Bear are eggsellent prize hiders
(I know...sorry...)

Next stop was Bumpa and Kathy's house for more dinner, dessert and another egg hunt (this time in the rain).

Hailey and Nicholas braved the rain to find out what the Easter Bunny left for them

Eli got in on the fun, too

Collecting eggs too fast for the shutter!

Uncle Chubz had to 'supervise.'

We're all full of devilled eggs, ham, candy and cake, and it's time to rest up for next Easter! Hope yours was full of fun and family, too!

Thanks to Tiffany, our family photographer. Without her, you'd never know we did anything!

One of my greatest regrets is not having family around to celebrate holidays with. When I was a kid all holidays were filled with LOTS of cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. I'm glad you are able to experience that now.
