Easter, finally

On Sat. before Easter, the kids and I went to Memphis sans Rex. He had an awful stomach bug and, though I hated to leave him alone, I hated even more the thought of a 2 or 3 yr. old with a stomach virus............ Ruby chose spinach, strawberries, blueberries, and Coke for the Easter Bunny's snack (Trip was at meltdown stage at this point of the evening).
Enjoying some Easter appropriate books with YaYa.

Ruby trying on her new Barbie sunglasses from the Easter Bunny. Ruby said, "These will be perfect for when we go to the beach." Yes, Ruby. What an insightful Easter Bunny. =)
Enjoying YaYa & D-Daddy's swing before Easter lunch.

The kids & Uncle Jer helped D-Daddy put out corn and apples for the deer.

Ruby was thrilled that it was ok to pick these "flowers."

Trip was really into his car this weekend.
Aaawww.... the brother/sister photo opp.

YaYa pulled out all the stops this year and we ate on fine china and sterling in the dining room.
I had to take a picture of my view of Ruby during lunch. There was something humorous about seeing her through sterling candlesticks- just not a combination I see too often.
And we finished the lovely weekend with an egg hunt in the front yard just in the nick of time before the downpour of rain began.
YaYa had filled the eggs with jelly beans, money, and stickers. Fun!
If Rexy could have been there, the weekend would have been perfect. Thank you YaYa, D-Daddy, & Jer!
