Mary Carol and Harry live on a farm and it is a little kids heaven!! The boys love it. They love running and playing in a HUGE area- exploring and riding tractors, the snoopy mobile and riding lawn mowers. (I remember loving that as well when I was a kid) In fact, my boys often ask if they can go play with Mary Carol and Harry. :) Who wouldn't with all that fun stuff to play and explore?
Anyway the Easter bunny visited the farm! This was very exciting.
When we first got there not everyone had arrived yet. We tried to keep the boys inside and occupied while we waited for Wade and Allison to arrive. Mary Carol and Harry's bunny hid a few eggs inside. So the boys hunted for those. Then we tried to entertain them by singing. My side of the family loves to sing! In fact, when we pray we usually sing the prayer. Growing up I assumed that everyone did this. When I got married it really freaked Matt out- so I realized that this was a family thing. :)
So here is my mom (a children's choir director for her church) and my aunt trying to teach my boys a new song. My kids must take after Matt's side of the family as they wanted NOTHING to do with singing.
They hid in the corner with panicked looks on their faces. :) On a side note- they did ask me to teach them the song in private last night. I think they like singing and movements but not when others are around.
Wade and Allison arrived!! So we were able to hunt for eggs. And boy were we all excited!
We went outside and let them go! I don't remember hunting eggs on a farm...but wow that would have been FUN!! They were EVERYWHERE!! Kids scattered and adults laughed and it was fun for all! Zach is in the red coat, Josh is in the blue coat, and Alex isn't wearing a coat.
I love this picture of Josh! He was SO HAPPY and all smiles!! It totally represented our day!
After the hunt was over, the boys still ran and played a while. Some adults went inside to fix dinner and some went inside because the wind made it a little chilly.
Alex LOVES riding this tractor around and I think its funny he wouldn't put his eggs down. He carried them everywhere! After a little bit we all went in for our delicious dinner!After dinner, Wade and Allison took the boys on a walk. They came back with lots of farmish things- like soybeans, ears of corn, etc.
I knew that our night was coming to an end when I looked over and saw Alex doing this:
That is a cool thing about Alex. When he is tired he just lays down- granted its in the middle of where all the people are- but he doesn't whine and cry (usually). He just plops himself down.
It was a great time!! Thanks again Mary Carol and Harry for hosting and hiding eggs!! We had an awesome time!!
