BG's (second) First Easter

Baby Girl was born the day before Easter last year. Being as how last Easter was spent like this..

..we decided to go all out with the First Easter activities this year.

We headed to Mr. P's parents house for the weekend to spend some time with them. Unfortunately his brother was pretty sick and was in the hospital all weekend so a lot of our time was spent up there making sure he was okay. It wasn't the way any of us wanted to spend Easter but once he made a very good turnaround on Saturday, we were able to enjoy most of the festivities.

On Sunday morning, we got up and let BG check out her basket of Easter goodies. Mr. P and I weren't doing baskets for each other this year but I couldn't resist getting him a small basket of candy.



Which who am I kidding? I've already devoured half. Oops.

Mr. P, BG, and I went with my father in law to church and then headed to eat lunch with my mother in law at the hospital cafeteria. So not my idea of Easter lunch but whatever. BG pranced up and down the halls in her Easter finest eating up all the "oohs" and "ahhs" of the nurses and visitors alike.

After lunch, we met up with Uncle Marine and headed back to the inlaws for a little Easter egg hunt. BG fell asleep in the truck on the way over, so we let her nap in her carseat in the car while we put out the eggs and got ready for the big hunt.

Once she woke up, it was on. She didn't really get the whole putting the egg in the basket thing, but she loved picking them up and chewing on them. I can't wait to see her running around next year!








We had such a fun time and I'm glad Uncle Marine and her Granny could be there. They got such a trip out of her.

Afterwards we got packed up and ready to head home when we realized we had no clue where BG was...

So busted.


Before leaving we went out to a local restaurant to meet some of the Uncle's friends and people he works with. It's so weird having him in the same town as the in-laws now but it does make visits pretty convenient. BG adored hanging out with her uncle and even got to go out just the two of them for Chick-fil-a one night. I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that she has him wrapped around her little finger.

All in all it was a nice, quiet holiday. Hope everyone had a great Easter!
