An Egg-cellent Day

Today was one of those great days. It shouldn't have been. We spent hours in the car. I got us very lost. Grocery Shopping, bathroom accidents, doctor appointments, dishes... but so great. The ages we spent in the car gave Kirsten and I time to really talk. We laughed, we told the boys jokes, and we enjoyed each other so much. I love days like today.

We decided to kick off our Easter celebrations by coloring eggs out on the deck tonight. It was so much fun. Kirsten just loves this kind of thing... and I think her brothers are going to be the same way! (Please ignore the missing pants on my boys... I try to enjoy these experiences and not worry about the mess... but I couldn't bear to ruin a pair of shorts... so I figured it was better for them to be 1/2 dressed then for me to impede on the fun.)

The boys caught on very quickly and loved every second of this. The took it very serious and did not want to stop!

Matt - so proud of himself (and his egg!)

Danny- "Whoo Hoo! I love eggs!"

My dad says the boys are like "mad scientists" around water because they love pouring, filling, and emptying... he should see them around eggs!!!!

K Love took a more relaxed, detail-oriented approach. Once the boys (COVERED in food coloring) were put in the tub, Kirsten got out a paintbrush and really got to work :)

The finished product!
