Are you ready for some pictures? I'm pretty sure I took over 200 pictures this past weekend, but have no fear - I'll divide it up in three separate posts! :) I can't help it - my kids are just too cute!
Our Easter weekend started off on Saturday with a family reunion in Alto. We had it in an old school building which was pretty cool, but the lack of air conditioning was not so cool! ha! The heat did not seem to bother the kids at all and they all had a blast!
They played non stop but they did have a sixth sense about when it was time to start the Easter egg hunt...they were so patient!
This year, Carli got it. Last year, she hunted the eggs and had fun but I think this year she actually got that she needed to find some eggs!
This was Ava's first ever experience with the Easter egg hunt and she thought they made great teething toys!
And this would not have been a successful day without attempting to get a picture of the girls together...
A little history here - as far back as I can remember, our family has ALWAYS had a money egg. My most vivid memory was my MeMaw usually knew where the money egg was and if she decided things were taking too long, she'd pick a great-grandkid and tell them where to look...I don't remember how old I was when I got "picked" but that year, the money egg was in MeMaw's purse! :) It was the best Easter ever!
So, every since then, when the whole big family gets together everyone puts some money in the money egg and one person is designated to hide it and they and only they know where it is...
Two years ago, on Carli's first Easter, she and her Daddy found the money egg. And this year, they kept the tradition going when Carli found the money egg (almost all by herself) in the tail pipe of a truck.
And finally - my fill in picture taker wasn't too familiar with my camera - but it wouldn't be a family reunion without a family picture! :)
