Easter Weekend

We went to our hometown Friday and Saturday to spend time with our families and meet our new nephew, Archer. It was full of non-stop fun, including all night Friday night. Jack woke up at midnight wide awake and asking for Nuts as if it was 6 am. The kid thrives on routine. If he doesn't get a good nap, then it almost always guarantees a bad night. You would think he would be so tired that he wouldn't make a peep all night, but nope.

We spent Friday with my family and the kids spent the majority of the day outside playing.

Nothing like a little ring pop bribery to get them to all sit in one place for a picture.

Sand box fun means these boys got a bath! All clean and watching YouTube videos.

We spent Saturday with Ty's family and again spent the majority of the day outside. It was a beautiful weekend.

We went to the Rattlesnake Festival, which is a small town festival centered around, you guessed it, rattlesnakes. It was pretty exciting growing up and Ty and I hadn't been in years. We stayed long enough to consume a funnel cake and roasted corn and for Grammy to buy Jack a toy snake as a memento.

Another round of egg hunting about to begin!

Things are always a little chaotic with all these boys and as we were leaving I realized that I didn't take a single picture of baby Archer! I tried to snap one as we left, but it didn't turn out. He is a sweet, little nugget. Jack was pretty indifferent as he just wanted to play, but he did walk around saying baby.

Easter Basket Ideas for Baby

Last Easter, Jack was 8 months old. I wanted to get him a few goodies for his Easter basket, but wasn't really sure what to get him. It's not like an 8 month old really needs anything or completely understands presents. Based on how much we used these items this past year, I'd say I did good. :)

Jellycat Bunny / Jellycat Touch and Feel Book / Bubbles / Ella's Kitchen Cookies / Personalized Hat

The bunny has become a favorite around here and is uniquely named, Peter. I love to watch Jack love on this bunny and it is the softest thing! Jack really liked touch and feel books and this one kept him occupied in the car and at church for months. The hat was chosen because of a planned trip to Breckenridge in May. I'm not suggesting you buy a knit beanie in April. :) It did work out well for our trip and all of winter.

Jack woke up from his nap while I was working on this post and saw the picture showing Peter and the book. He got so excited and started saying, "hop, hop", which is what he calls a bunny.

This year with a 21 month old, I'm planning to put a swimsuit, color wonder books and markers, Zubels Pirate "Arrnee"  hand-knit doll and the book, Steam Train Dream Train.
I love gift ideas and seeing what others are buying for holidays. Anyone else know what they are purchasing for their kids' Easter baskets?

And because, he is just too cute I have to post these pictures of Jack with his Easter basket last year.
