We started the day with a yummy Easter Eggs Benedict brunch with some friends and then headed over to our local cemetery for our traditional Easter egg hunt amidst the tomb stones. I’ve always thought of it as a kind of cool symbolic place to be on Easter morning…..we’ve never seen a soul in the older part of the cemetery and the tomb stones make great hiding places for eggs. This year we ran into some pretty grumpy women who thought it was a horrible place for an easter egg hunt. We respectfully waited until they had left to let the kids loose. I think all those dead people are probably delighted to have squealing kids running around their graves :).
As you can see, it was a little chilly. Well, freezing. My ears felt hollow after our quick 30 min hunt. The kids didn’t seem to mind though, why would you care if you were freezing if you had loads of chocolate and candy to find?The Kruckenberg kids found the eggs so fast that they had to re-hide half of theirs for slow Charlie to find. Bless their little hearts for being so kind to this little guy.
Hazel looked like such a little lady in her Easter dress.
At least the table looked sunny and cheery, you wouldn’t guess it was 30 degrees outside.
And then there was the Easter photo shoot (which Jeff of course was THRILLED about). I’m surprised these kids are smiling, with all the frustration that was whizzing around them. I guess candy bribes can work wonders.
Oh, how we love our little girl.
We sort of ran out of time for pictures of Emmeline.
And how she loves her little sister.
And this guy, what are we going to do with all that charm?
