April Activities

Where has the month gone?! Our Easter celebration began at Grammy & Papa's house with their only grandchildren (mine) and great grandchildren (Courtnie's) that live here.

The annual egg hunt commences with a bag handed to each child with a bunny on the front that is the color of the eggs you search for. You can only get YOUR color.

Garrett always gets orange and there are four big plastic eggs and two small plastic eggs hidden in Grammy & Papa's basement. They all have money in them.

Once you've found your plastic eggs (the kids always need a little help because Papa is such a good hider), you can start looking for the smaller chocolate eggs that are hidden everywhere.

The smaller kids get to search from the waist down and the bigger kids get the higher ones. Again, Papa is very tricky and when he hides them from year to year, he ALWAYS finds at least one egg that didn't get found the previous year.

Cooper enjoyed his Easter goodies too!

The morning after Easter, Garrett, Hailey, Grayson and I hopped on the plane to So. Cal so we could enjoy our annual trek to Capistrano Beach/Dana Point.

That first venture into the ocean is always a cold one...

We visit different amusement parks each trip and we headed to Knott's Berry Farm this time. My mom won't go on roller coasters but she does enjoy the swings.

Garrett and Grayson are usually good to go on most roller coasters (the girls will do any of them)...

Hailey found a friend in Camp Snoopy. Couldn't tell if it was Linus or Schroder...

We went to one of our favorite restaurants El Torito two times in six days--mostly for the fried ice cream!
John was able to join us for the last two days and spent it playing basketball with the kids, riding bikes to San Clemente Pier and taking them to an Angels baseball game.

So long until next year... (6 months for me, however)

Now on to the rest of the month...
