The Hunt Is On!

Today is Easter! I have to say that Finn had a much better time this year than last year. Finn and I got up at 7:30 and started cooking for Easter dinner at Gran and Pa's house. Before we left for the day we took a few pictures of Finn all dressed up in his Easter outfit. He had three wardrobe changes throughout the day.


Next we went to church with Gran and Pa. Finn was great all the way through the singing. However, during the prayer requests Finn hollered "poo-poo" twice, which was a little embarrassing. As expected I had to take Finn out during the service.

When we got home Finn opened his Easter basket. He got two sets of learning flashcards (real fun Mom and Dad), some Thomas the Train cards and some Teddy Grahams.




After opening his Easter basket, Finn took a nap. 20 minutes into the nap we had to get Finn out of bed and get to our safe spot. We had terrible storms come through. Finn was so upset to be locked in the bathroom with Mama. Dad stayed in the den and watched the weather broadcast. Finn was very upset that his Dad was not in the room with us. Every time it thundered Finn would say "thunder" and this his most panicked voice cry for daddy and beat on the door. Thankfully, everyone was fine.
After the storms passed we went to Gran and Pa's house for Dinner. First Finn opened his Easter basket from Gran. He was a little shy at first because there were a few people there that he didn't know. All he wanted to do was hide his face into me and Michael. Finn's Easter basket was great. He got some trucks, socks, shoes, sandals, Thomas jammies, an outfit, a sticker book and a stuffed sheep.

Then we had dinner. Finn ate mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and green beans. After dinner Finn hunted eggs. This was my favorite part. After we helped him find the first egg, he was off.

He found the rest of them with no trouble at all. The best part was when Finn spotted some eggs way out in the yard and took off like he was shot out of a canon. He looked so cute running as fast as he could carrying that basket along side.



It was about this time that it started to rain again. Finn was almost finished so we braved the rain and continued to hunt.
When we got back inside Finn went through his stash. Most of the eggs either had marshmallows or Nutter Butters in them. But the golden eggs were full of cars!







By the end of the day Finn and Daddy were exhausted.
