Best Easter ever with a side of picture overload

At bathtime Jon said to the boys, "We had a really good Easter today." Alex's response was perfectly almost 3 years old, "Let's do it again daddy!"

Early morning Easter baskets were a huge hit.



Easter egg hunt, also a huge hit.



I tried and tried and tried to get a good action shot. And let me tell you, every shot looks like this because the boys were running through the house looking for eggs.


Could they look any happier about egg hunting?



Oh yeah they could. They were over the moon when they realized they were going to eat chocolate bunnies for breakfast.



Nate is notorious for being uncooperative with photos. Apparently I'm not bribing him with enough chocolate because this is the biggest he's ever smiled for any photo.


We didn't really let the boys eat an entire bunny. We stopped them at the ears. Alex managed to eat the face off his while my back was turned. I can't stop hearing Billy Idol's "Eyes Without a Face" in my head.


After naptime we went to a really fun Easter party with another egg hunt and a pinata. When we got home, I made deviled eggs... my dad's recipe with vinegar and mayo. Alex... the PICKY one... said he wanted to eat one. He ate the whole thing.

Just when you think he's a mini-Jon, he proves he's a Verhoff.

I'm with Alex. I'm ready to do this day all over again.

Love the pics - so cute!!

And you might try white wine instead of vinegar next year. We once did that when I was kid and there was no vinegar in the house and it seemed to work well. I believe I have seen photographic evidence that Jon drinks wine, right? Besides, the kids will be doing eggs not drinking it!

So much cuteness! They look like such little men. I can see how wonderful they will be when they are grown up.

I'm glad you had such a great Easter. It looks like the boys had a blast.

I let Michael eat as much chocolate as he wanted for breakfast, and he actually stopped before I thought he would. Then he bounced all over the sofa for half an hour.
