Easter was always a fun holiday growing up. Egg dyeing, Easter egg hunts, jelly beans, peanut butter eggs, jelly beans, Easter baskets full of cavity inducing candy, jelly beans.
I obviously love jelly beans which is why I have three bags of them in my desk right now.
So, who would’ve thought that Easter would be an even more fun holiday once you popped out a child? I had no idea!
This past weekend, we did every clichéd Easter activity possible and had a total blast! Since Joe had to work on Good Friday and Saturday, Anna and I made a trip out to Mimi’s house (her favorite place on earth) to partake in some pre-Easter festivities. I decided to be a good mother this weekend and actually photograph it all. I am a true slacker in that respect. When my child is 25 and decides to take a trip down memory lane, I don’t want her thinking she disappeared between the ages of 2 and 4.
I think I went a little overboard with the photos. Oh well, I know my mother-in-law will appreciate my efforts!
So, here we go – photos and commentary of our wonderful little weekend.
Disclaimer: Yes, my child is wearing a two-piece. This was a last-minute idea on our part (swimming), and it’s all we could find at the store closest to my mom’s house. Besides, she looks adorable in it!
Anna and Jackson are ready to swim!
He’s the happiest baby on the planet.
I wonder if Anna is happy?
Yeah, I think so.
She’s finally starting to smile for the camera. It’s a Christmas miracle!
She’s ready to swim! Or sit. Because that’s all she’ll be able to do in that tiny little pool.
She’s not quite brave enough to “dive” in yet.
