Mack wore his sunglasses almost all day today.

Ain’t he just the cutest thing ever?

He also started saying “Cool Dude”. Cracks me up. Little comedian.

Today I decided to hold my 1st annual egg hunt for the boys. I was going to do it tomorrow in my backyard but they’re calling for rain all week. Also – we were going to my parents house for dinner, and their backyard is so much better to hold an egg hunt in. So I called up my parents mid-afternoon and asked them if they minded if I used their backyard once Mack was up from his nap. No problemo.

My sister also had a few chocolate eggs for the boys, so I had her help me fill the plastic eggs I bought yesterday (apparently I bought way too many).

And we hid them (some more obvious than others) in the yard. I called up a friend of mine, and she came over with her 2 boys with empty baskets. I didn’t want my boys going home with that much chocolate & candies!

The hunt began. I helped Mackenzie until he got the hang of what he was supposed to be doing.

He got the hang of it though!

And was so cute walking around with his basket.

Some eggs fell out of his basket…

But very quickly made it back in.

Mack found a few more and then decided to call it quits and start eating some.

On the other side of the backyard, Sean was with my friend’s older son searching for more eggs.

My friend’s son was the oldest kid there, and of course, he found the most.

Tonight was the first time my grandfather has joined us for dinner since his accident in October. It was really nice having both my grandparents there tonight for dinner. Especially on such a beautiful day. The only person we’re missing in this photo is Jamie, since he decided to come to dinner after the egg hunt festivities.

How’d you celebrate Easter Sunday? I hope the make our egg hunt a tradition, it was so much fun.

You're much better than me at setting up an Easter egg hunt! :) We also got some nice family shots this weekend.

Gosh he so starting to look like a little boy instead of a toddler. Wow. Two hits fast doesn't it?

Well you know how my Easter went. It was spent in the surgeons office and then on vigil to make sure Gus didn't start bleeding again.

I didn't do an egg hunt with my boys 'cus Henri wouldn't "get" it, but it looks like you guys had fun!

(p.s I just noticed the blog redesign, looks awesome!)

Nice hunt! Oh, and I'm getting a huuuuuuuge NKOTB vibe from Mack, heh.
