We had a wonderful Easter weekend!  I realize that was about 3 weeks ago, but I'm just now getting around to posting photos. 

We started out our weekend at the lake on Friday night.  Wyatt and Ellie actually went up earlier in the day and the weather was beautiful so they enjoyed playing outside and riding all their toys all afternoon.

After breakfast on Saturday morning, the kids got dressed and we all went outside to play.  All three of them loved just digging in the dirt. 

Of course we pulled out the kubota and 4-wheeler and gator, etc and all three kids took turns riding and driving all the equipment.

Wyatt was SO EXCITED about going fishing while we were at the lake.  He talked about it all week and about all the different colored fish he was going to catch.


After a very brief nap, we all headed to Wurth's birthday party.  Check out cool breeze with his sunglasses on.  His future is so bright .....

After the party and dinner we got the kids bathed and ready for bed.  Try as we might, we just couldn't get all 3 to cooperate for a picture in their cute pj's :(

The Easter Bunny did come to visit all thre kids!

Wyatt was particurlarly excited about the (few) pieces of candy that the ole' Bunny brought to him! 

Eventually we got all the kids dressed (same clothes they wore to the b-day party ... shhh  don't tell anyone) and had a mini Easter Egg hunt. 

Mom was very clever and put non-edible prizes in the eggs and the kids had so much fun!

We tried and tried and tried to get the 3 kids picture with Meme and Papa, but it didn't work so well.  Notice that Wyatt is the ONLY ONE cooperating????

Before lunch, we went down to the dock to throw rocks and check all the fishing poles.  Lo and behold, Wyatt had caught a fish!!!!  (This pole had been in the water for 24 hours with the same worm on it.  True story)

Ben helped him reel it in!

Wyatt was thrilled!

First fish!

We all sat down for easter lunch and even enjoyed some pretty cupcakes afterward! 

We got the kids dressed up fancy before taking them to the farm egg hunt. 

Wyatt looked so sweet!
Then we headed to the farm for the egg hunt over there.  I love this picture of Grand Meme with all 7 great-grandchildren. 
The egg hunt began.  Wyat and Wurth were so sweet walking together.  Wurth was born about 6 weeks before Wyatt was. 
I'm not sure exactly how many 'hunters' there were.  Maybe 20?  But there were over 400 eggs hidden so needles to say each child had PLENTY. 

It was a Happy Easter for all.  We're still on a sugar high at our house!
