last weekend while visiting family in ohio we had an easter celebration at brad's parent's house. all the cousins were there and we even had a little easter egg hunt. i'm not sure any of the kids really figured it out, but it was still fun to watch. william did get the hang of bringing an adult an egg and saying "help help help" so we would open it for him and he could eat the treats inside. smart kid.
last time we were in ohio, william's cousins weren't doing much moving so they didn't really get to play together. this time was completely different. it was so fun watching them interact with each other and play. in a couple years it will be even more fun. i can't wait! plus, the two tiny ones (in their car seats above) will be bigger and more fun too :)
as i said recently, i'm not a believer in any religion. so holidays like this are a little different for me. i've always celebrated these religious holidays, ie christmas, easter but with an emphasis on family instead of religion. growing up, in took a lot of comparative religion classes at the unitarian fellowship and then again in high school. i know all the stories, i can even hold my own with brad (who was raised catholic) when the bible category of jeopardy comes up!
i hope you have a wonderful easter sunday whether you're celebrating christ or celebrating a special time with family. or, more likely, both!
the last few photos from our trip to ohio and the first few from being back home with daddy! we sure missed this place. every time i think i want to move away from california, i go away and remember how much i love it. i think we'll be here for a long time :)
