Happy Easter!

We’ve been a wee bit busy lately, and have been EXTREMELY remiss in not only POSTING any pictures or videos, but also of even TAKING any pictures or video. 

Easter seemed like a great excuse to end this awful silent streak.

We didn’t spend a lot of time building up the concept of the Easter Bunny with Finn, so when today rolled around, he’d heard of this creature, but wasn’t really invested in all he/she had to offer.

We “hid” his Easter basket on the floor at the end of our bed thinking he’d see it when he came in to announce his awakening as he does every weekend morning.

He walked by it three times, and STILL didn’t notice it.  Apparently we have a very focused child.

When we finally did show him his basket of goodies – including a large set of Cars cars, some Toy Story goodies and a couple of books – he decided the Easter Bunny was one cool cat.

He set about getting acquainted with his new friends while I started getting things ready for dinner.


After his nap, we gave him his gift from Gigi & Papa.  Complete happiness ensued.

An hour or so later, Nana and Papa arrived and we kicked off a fairly short Easter Egg hunt in the backyard.  It’s fun to see the differences and similarities from his hunt last year.

After the hunt we took a couple of pretty cute photos.  It’s really getting frightening how big our little guy is getting.



BW and his mini-me.

All-in, it was a really great day.  We shared dinner with Nana, Papa, cousin Cody and Cindy’s friend Shawn and his girlfriend Suzanne.  It was Shawn’s birthday, so Finn’s day was made 100% awesome by the finale of cake, ice-cream and a rendition of “Happy Birthday.”  He went to bed one happy little boy.
