happy easter!

Auntie Janne and Uncle Adam were able to come out and visit us for the weekend!  We picked them up at the airport on Friday and headed to Panda Express for lunch (Christopher and Nicholas picked!!).  Then it was time for the trip to Target to introduce Janne and Adam to the girls at Starbucks and some shopping at Southlands.

On Saturday we planned to go explore downtown Denver but woke up to cloudy, rainy weather.  Instead we went to Park Meadows for more shopping and lunch at Wahoo's (Janne's favorite!).  After Lexie went to bed, we all dyed Easter eggs!!
The egg dyers!  Nick, Janne, Ben, Adam, Christopher

Uncle Adam helped Christopher with his eggs!

Ben waiting for his turn

Nicholas had fun doing the eggs this year!

You do WHAT with the egg?!?

After decorating Easter eggs, the kids headed to bed!  They woke up bright and early eager to see if the Easter Bunny had come.  I went downstairs and made coffee and got breakfast started and then it was time for everyone else to come down.

The Easter Bunny DID stop at our house!!

Christopher found most of the eggs.  I think the EB picked hiding spots that were too easy this year.  Next year will be harder!!

Ben found an egg with help from Uncle Adam!

Lexie thought the eggs were for eating, shell and all!

Auntie Janne got a new cow (and the Barnyard movie) in her basket!

Lexie was very intrigued with the candy in everyone's basket since hers only had animal crackers.  She tried peanut butter for the first time in the form of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!

After hunting for eggs and going through the baskets we had a relaxing afternoon.  The kids watched Madagascar 2 and then in the afternoon Auntie Janne and Uncle Adam took Christopher and Nicholas to see Monsters vs Aliens.  They had a great time!!

We had a delicious ham for dinner and spent the rest of the evening playing and watching movies.  We had a great visit with Janne and Adam and were sad to see them go on Monday!!

Waiting for dinner....

And Janne was in charge of the wine!
