This year's Easter was pretty laid back. With most of our house packed, we decided to take make this holiday nice and simple. In fact, the Easter Bunny didn't even bring baskets this year, but instead decided to borrow some of our bowls to use, knowing we didn't want to have to deal with packing one more thing. What a thoughtful Bunny. :) Thankfully the kids didn't seem to care. Carter was curious, but I pretty much gave him the same explanation on the baskets, so he was fine. haha.
The kids got up early to look at their baskets, and then after church we went over to our friends, the Smiths, house to do an Easter egg hunt. I've included pictures of the kids with their baskets, along with some pictures of the kids getting eggs. I love the last two pictures because our kids are so sweaty. Typical Galveston. Not going to miss that!
Oh yeah... I also included a random picture of some flamingoes!! We were driving in Galveston on a bridge, and Bo looked down and saw some "wild" flamingoes! Don't know how they got there, or where they came from, but those birds are definitely not native to the island, and yet they weren't in captivity. huh.

There was more candy than that in the bowl, but my kids had already devoured it.

There were still eggs all over to be found, but Meg just decided she had enough, and was too hot, so instead she just went over to the stairs and sat down. Cracks me up. That's more Bo's personalitly than mine! I would've been like Carter and just kept going!

That is a funny picture of Meg.

And how awesome that you found pink birds in Galveston! I've never seen any on the island before. Makes me wonder if they are Roseate Spoonbills (the picture is one some guy took out on High Island).
