We had a little sunshine between the rain today (am I beginning to sound like a weather man...???) and the boys had fun inventing chalk games outside.

They even got us girls to come out and play for a while...

the game was a bit confusing at times =)

...but so adorable...

...and we had fun.

I was out the other afternoon, enjoying the hot weather, and got this cute shot of Danny...it felt like Summer, and it was amazing.

Don't worry...the heat didn't last for long. The next day rain was pouring down again, and it has been ever since. I got practically drenched out running today. =)

We wouldn't want to forget what state we live in, now would we?

the hunt

Easter egg hunts are some of my favorite holiday memories...
this year, it was so fun to see my little brothers having a blast with the tradition.

Because we live in Washington (...which means everything was wet outside), we had our hunt in the house. Not exciting or picturesque, but with some creativity, it turned out just as fun =)

it was a good way to end the morning =)

small things that made the day special...

today, since we were too tired to do anything big, we just had a quiet Easter celebration by ourselves.

Have you ever noticed...you don't need very much to make an ordinary day festive for a kid? So glad the boys weren't looking for excitement or perfection...because they weren't going to find it here =)

A few simple decorations, an egg hunt in the afternoon (more on that later), and a special, simple dinner with all of us laughing around the table made it memorable, and we enjoyed having such a restful day.
