Easter Day!

Easter was the best this year, truly. We could have had a bit warmer and sunnier, but otherwise it was such a good day start to finish. 
We started the morning with Easter baskets and inside the baskets were only a few small toys. But there was a clue leading them to a location with one larger present. This was James's face when he saw the Lego set he wanted desperately but wasn't expecting. 
Juliet got a leopard "soft friend" who hasn't left her side since Easter day.
A few candies and chocolates, some seeds for the garden, sidewalk chalk and blueberries.

He couldn't wait to get building. And even though this was a set for 8-14 year olds, he only needed help a few times.
And it wasn't really warm enough for sidewalk chalk, but when you've got bunny jammies and slippers, anything is possible. ;)
Once dressed we modeled a bit in front of the forsythia.
She is such a good model. But look at that sad face! Maybe I told her I didn't like where she was standing?
Soon the house filled with brunch guests. We were hoping to host in the backyard, but alas, not quite warm enough.
Melissa is a kitty whisperer.
Juliet was SO MUCH more social at this party than every before. Yea!
Breakfast was AMAZING. The strada was out of this world good and my mom's homemade sweet rolls...
My four sibs, all in a line. Me, Brandon, Melissa, Chandler.
And my mom the Easter Bunny had a chance to hide more baskets plus tons of eggs in the backyard for the kids to have another hunt!

Everyone was so interested to see what the kids got.
Full house! Seriously such fun.
Brandon had an app on his phone that delighted James and Juliet, and he played with them the majority of the time.

After a quick quiet time we drove up to Midway to join E's family for dinner. Chelsea and Joe hosted, which was extremely nice of them, due to the fact that Chelsea is 17 weeks pregnant! 
After (more!) Easter baskets were explored we started the annual egg hunt. Every year E's dad the Easter Bunny puts on an EPIC egg hunt with clues, tricks, driving, and scavenging until we find the final goodies. For a couple of years now, he's been doing it for the grandkids (because for years and years he did it for his adult children!). He's amazing.
We went all over town looking for clues.
These three cousins (and another on the way) are the best of friends.
Happiest Easter!

In this post Juliet is wearing my favorite outfit I've ever found for her. It's vintage (purchased with the original tags!) and is just perfection. I paired it with a classic knee sock and black leather mary jane. With her little bob she looks like she just stepped out of the 1940s.
