Boys and their Treats

Kudos to Cara, who at 38 weeks pregnant, hosted a SUPER FUN Easter playgroup on Monday afternoon! We had to do a repeat of last year's Easter picture, and get the boys in just their jeans and this year, Brittney had the best idea of adding colorful lollipops! Thanks, Brittney! The pictures turned out better than I could have hoped! I'm just trying to decide which ones to frame and where I want to put it! Cara did an awesome job at editing!!! We really missed Amy and Porter and hope that he's feeling better. After our picture, Cara had a Easter Egg hunt planned outside! Reid was more into the small basketball goal, but once he realized there were such yummy treats as cheerios and fruit snacks in the eggs, he was a lot more into the hunt! Cara, I hope I'm getting as much done as you when I'm 9 months pregnant!!!! Thanks for a fun afternoon!!!
There seriously is nothing better than little boys, shirtless, in their jeans! Add the lollipops and you get classic! Also, just in case you're wondering how we get them to sit there, let me paint the scene from their eyes: lots of mommies singing Itsy Bitsy Spider (the song that we've found works) while doing the hand motions...works like a charm!

A "behind the scenes" shot :)


Off to hunt Easter Eggs!




Here's one!


And another...but, I must not let go of this ball!


Trying so hard to open the egg!

Success!

Taking an egg hunting break

I'm telling you, Reid loves to climb! He's got great balance and control of his body and so he's able to do it by himself...but, I'm always right there behind him just in case!!!

Is there a little baby in there too?? :)

As if Cara didn't do enough, she made these little Easter Eggs and had a little treat bag for the boys!!! Seriously, how does she do it???
