The bunny was good to us this year. I wish he still left a little something for me, but every year, no such luck. We woke up early and played with their new things, found some eggs the bunny had hidden around the house and left for breakfast served at chuch. Every Easter there is a pancake breakfast before the service. After church we went out to lunch with David and Mary and went to my parent's house for dinner. Tyler was in town and of course Brooke and the family came too. Holidays are just the best and I love the traditions that have been established and developing since Magnolia was born.

Pictures with the live bunnies/chicks/ducks each year at Traditions is always a big event for the girls. For months every time we go back in to see the pictures of have some taken, they think the bunnies will still be there. Henry was only 2.5 months in these pictures and he did so good. Have I mentioned how in love I am with this little guy. Also, thanks to Mimi for the darling Easter outfits. She out does herself every year!

Last Saturday, the day before Easter, we headed over to Valpo for a big family get together for my cousin's son's 1st birthday and an Easter egg hunt. Lots of kids and lots of eggs to find. The sun was shining and we had a wonderful lunch followed by way too many yummy desserts. They are planning on doing this every year. I love that my kids can grow up spending holidays with such a big amazing family.

It's hard to get a good, even decent, picture of 2 babies. I'm attempting to get a picture of Henry and Raife together each month for at least Henry's first year. So far we have pictures of them from December (Henry's birth and Christmas), January (Jackie, Michelle and Jonah's visit), February (Brooke's birthday) and here is March's glamour shots...

Our church put together a float for South Bend's downtown St. Patrick's Day Parade this year. We had never done a float for the parade before but it was a great morning for a parade with nice weather, lots of people participating in the parade and lots of people watching. Our church has a bell tower with a copper/gold-ish/shiny dome so our float depicted that as the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow. The kids wore a rainbow of colors and had wands with colorful ribbons tied to the ends.
