Weekending: Easter Edition

Happy Monday, lovelies! We had a great weekend celebrating Easter, so let's get to it, shall we? 

Walker and I had a really lazy morning at home, and really enjoyed having Brandon home around lunchtime for his Good Friday half-day. I had a good doctor's appointment to check on the baby, and then when I came home, we checked out a cute little old-fashioned soda fountain near us for a fun treat. 

We had leftovers for dinner, and then Brandon and I watched "The Big Short" when Walker went to bed. I fell asleep halfway through, but Brandon really enjoyed it. (It was way more up his alley than mine!) 

We took Walker to our church's annual egg hunt, and he had a great time…until he realized the four eggs he gathered were filled with Skittles and M&M's, and then it was game over! He just stood right there opening his four little eggs eating the candy and was pleased as punch. Ha! 

There's a little hilly area right next to our church that's filled with the Texas State Flower, the bluebonnet, and we of course had to let Walker partake in every Texas kid's rite of passage by plopping him right smack dab in the middle of them for pictures for posterity. 

Brandon had to have some work done on his iPhone after that, so we had to kill some time in the Apple Store (snooze) before having a yummy lunch on the patio at Taco Diner, where Walker was literally shoving handfuls of queso in his mouth. I mean, he's a boy after my own heart! 

Walker took the nap of champions after that busy, full morning, and we just hung out around the house all afternoon and evening playing in the backyard and getting some things done around the house. 

Once Walker was in bed, Brandon and I watched "The Best of Me," which I practically bawled my way through. (And James Marsden was definitely easy on the eyes!) And I got Walker's Easter basket all set up and put out for the next morning. 

Walker was excited to see what the Easter Bunny brought him and quickly donned the little bunny ears (which barely came off all day)! 

We celebrated our risen Savior at church, but of course I had to snap a picture of my boys in their matching tie/bow-tie before we left. I can't wait to match THREE boys next year! 

After church, we headed over to my in-law's for lunch and another Easter egg hunt for Walker. My mother-in-law had a fabulous lunch made and I've officially eaten enough for an entire Army for the next week! 

Walker really got the hang of hunting eggs (thanks to encouragement from his Daddy and Uncle Todd) but of course discovered the M&M's in the eggs and was pretty much done! 

And the obligatory family photos followed, and Walker's silly smile was about as much as we could muster this year! (I can't believe this is our last Easter as a family of three!) 

Whew, what a busy, fun weekend! I hope y'all had great Easters celebrating; I can't wait to read all about them! 

Linking up with Biana and Meghan

  10. We watched The Big Short on Friday night too! I did the same thing, fell asleep just about half way through! I really, really wanted to like it but I just couldn't get into it (or understand it for that matter). You all had such a precious Easter weekend! I love that pic of the three of you!!

  11. What an amazing weekend!! Your guys look adorable in their matching bow/tie! That's so funny Walker didn't take his bunny ears off - definitely festive ;) I loved the Big Short - such an interesting movie (I watched it alone but I'm sure my husband would've cared less lol)
