The Big Easter Bash

The boys and I traveled up nort' to MN to spend some time with my family for Easter. Z couldn't come because he was on call for work (boo hoo), but the boys and I had a blast. This visit to MN was the first time the boys crossed state lines since they got here and it was the first time that most of my family had a chance to meet the boys, so all kinds of new things were happening. The boys did great and they are still talking about how much fun they had at Uncle Matt and Auntie Jasmine's house.
After the boys had a chance to see Grandma again and meet everyone else, it was time for some lunch and then time to dye some eggs. This was the first egg-coloring experience for the boys and they certainly enjoyed themselves. Even the adults at the table had some fun!

The boys showing off their beautiful eggs!

Captivated by video games. The boys enjoyed playing with all of Uncle Matt's gadgets and spending time with their cousins.

Jellybean really getting into the game!
We were all totally entertained by the game Rock Star. The boys had a blast and their mom is trying to figure out how to justify buying a new video game - it was totally fun!
Peanut decided that one instrument was simply not enough for him - he had to play the drums AND the guitar!
All the kids playing with K'Nex.

Cleaning up their mess. The boys LOVE the vacuum. I think we'll have to do this at home, too.

All the kids with Grandma and Grandpa on Easter morning.

Despite the 8 or so inches of snow that fell right before we arrived, we all had a great time and ate a lot of great food. We even braved the cold for a walk/snowball fight. Thanks for hosting the party Matt and Jasmine - when can we come back?!?
