Easter Egg Hunt And Brunch – Boston Style

I was pleasantly surprised when my neighbor invited us to a neighborhood Easter Egg hunt and brunch the day before Easter. We had a great time but it made me a little sad for our traditional hunt and brunch in Milwaukee.

The funniest picture of the day. I was wearing Ben in the ring sling and he fell asleep. I sat down on the porch and realized I had forgotten Ben’s shoes and his feet were probably cold. I started to zip my coat over his feet and realized I could zip it all the way up over him. I cocooned him inside my coat and he took an hour nap. Wade evidently took my picture at some point and I have the strangest looking profile!

Egg Dying

We’ve had a crazy last few weeks, but tonight we made time to dye Easter Eggs! Kaitlyn was so excited to be able to “do it myself” and Alex got creative with his mixing of colors. Teague just wanted blue eggs, and Ben slept through the majority of the process. It’s definitely a Burch tradition.

Monthly

I’ve been doing a second monthly photo series with Ben on his daily blog. I decided to show it here so you could see all the months together in one post.

Can You See Him?

Alex might have come up with the best hiding spot I have seen. I walked past him twice before he started making a beeping noise (it’s to help Kaitlyn out).

Hint – he’s under all the clothes in the laundry basket.

Workout Partner

I haven’t found anywhere that will take Ben while I work out. At most places he has to be 6 months old. I finally got tired of waiting and have started working out at home. My kids are fascinated. Kaitlyn decided to work out with me today and even found an old toy rattle that looked like a dumbbell.

Salem Overnight

The big boys had the opportunity for an overnight on the USS Salem through cub scouts. (Wade got to take them.) By all accounts they had a wonderful time – even with the limited food, minimal heat, and rainy weather. The boys are already asking about next year. (Wade spent the day recovering but is sure he’ll be ready for it again in 12 months.)

Girls’ Night

Kaitlyn has been looking forward to tonight all week. She knew the boys were going to be gone and we were going to have some Girl Time. She helped me plan the evening – a trip to see the Easter Bunny, Papa John’s pizza while watching Scooby Doo, painting our nails, watching The Lorax, and then sleeping in my bed with me. We had a great night. (Kaitlyn found some pajamas in the piles of baby clothes I was sorting. She was adamant that they fit. I had her try them on just to be sure. Impressively she can get 12 month pajamas on, but chose not to sleep in them.)
