Easter Saturday for us!

Since the weather is supposed to be rainy on Easter Sunday, we decided to celebrate Easter on Saturday with family.   Today’s weather was perfect, not too hot and it certainly wasn’t cold!!!  Grandma, Uncle Rhett and cousin Jory came over hang out and do some exciting things today!  Unfortunately Grandpa was at home sick.  🙁    A lot of this post will be in pictures because I surely took a lot, but I will also tell you a little about the pictures!!!

 We started our afternoon off with an Easter Egg Hunt.   125 eggs for three children was definitely enough!   The funniest part of our hunt was that there was a silver egg that was the prize egg and no one could find it.  It was the last found egg! DSC_0543 DSC_0551 DSC_0556 DSC_0565

After our Easter Egg Hunt, we decided to do some fun inside activities!  We did a “Guess how many jelly beans are in the jar”  guessing game!

Benjamin guessed 1 million!

Daddy won!   He’s such a smarty!  The total number of jelly beans in the jar was 148!  The prize for winning was the jar of jelly beans!  And because he is so nice, he decided to split the jelly beans between the three boys!

Then, we did a couple of Laura Kelly’s fun activity sheets (http://laurakellydesigns.com/fun/).  The first one was a Spring Time word search!


Uncle Rhett helped Benjamin out!

The first one to finish got a Reese’s chocolate bunny!   Yay Jory!!!

The boys decided they wanted to spend a little time outside.  And what do boys love to do outside?  Play sports!   A mini football game!  I love Benjamin’s expression after hiked the ball!

Next, we did the jelly bean sorting sheet!


Benjamin worked so hard on his and was concentrating really hard!


Jory got all of his sorted and counted!




Benjamin was the only one to do the third sheet.  It was a Design your own flowers in the pots sheet!


Then there was a little time for a game of chess, well at least the start of one before dinner was ready!


After our lovely Easter dinner, it was time for  Easter Egg dying!  But mommy must be a complete idiot, because the directions for dying eggs doesn’t make sense….    It just says to add 3 tbsp of vinegar to the cup with the tab.  Well, 3 tbsp is not enough to cover the eggs.  And I couldn’t remember if I was supposed to add water to the mix or not.  But anyways,  I ended up just pouring more vinegar into the cups.  Hopefully our hard boiled eggs will not taste like vinegar!   It was fun though.  Grandma helped the boys with their dying!


While at BJ’s today, I spotted this yummy S’mores kit!   What a fantastic idea!   So, guess what dessert was?!?!


The kids love some S’mores!!!!   🙂


After a long day, a nice glass of red wine was necessary!


Now it’s time for bed!   Hope everyone has a fantastic Easter!

    I LOVE your blog! You and Bruce are great parents! I did the same with our eggs! I thought maybe they would come out a deeper color. Finally I gave up and added a 1/2 cup of water. What a great day the boys had! I sure hate I missed seeing them last Sunday! 🙁
