Coming down from the high of a holiday weekend to one of the most Monday of Mondays: mess upon mess upon mess (always multiplied post-holiday), infants who refuse to nap, miscellaneous injuries (blood and all) (we're fine), toddler bedtime protests, etc., etc., etc. Though we did enjoy some crazy-beautiful spring weather today, so there's that.
And really, it's not like the holidays are all fun and games. Please tell me that someone else's BEST family photo from yesterday looks something like this:
(2/5 looking at the camera, 1/3 children crying, 0/2 toddler blur factor)
With this as a close second:
(1/5 looking at camera, same child crying, 2/2 toddler blur factor)
I guess I'll take what I can get each day: blurry family photos and some overtired toddlers in exchange for some holiday fun? Followed immediately by gorgeous let's-play-outside-all-afternoon weather combined with post-holiday messy chaos? Deal.
Both are kind of exhausting, though.
Okay, less words, more pictures. Here's some more of our Easter fun. Still a few words, though. (You know I can't resist.)
Egg hunt round one:
(Dat face, tho.)
Brooklyn's reaction to candy:
Brooklyn's reaction to ca$h money:
We'll have to work on that.
What Caden does when you tell him that it's his turn to hide all of the eggs:
...which he then points them out to everyone with a giggle as they walk by. Totes legit.
Extra candy eaten (parenting perk!):
Three (3!!!) Easter cuties.
(Quite possibly the cutest of all.)
Pro tip: next time do the egg-dying beforehand, leaving just the egg-decorating for the two-year olds, whose patience level for the whole dying and then waiting-to-dry part is approximately ZERO.
(They did enjoy the decorating part, though.)
Egg hunt round two:
(Snagged by the sister.)
(Dividing their spoils.)
