A Happy Easter

The Easter Bunny visited us on Sunday.

We spent most of the day at Nana and Grandpa's for brunch...

...which included the world's most adorable pan of rice krispy treats that Nana made.

We hunted eggs... well, gathered them from the chicken coop.

Nana and Grandpa's yard is beautiful with Spring flowers everywhere!

Then the kids hunted for Easter eggs...

and hunted...

and hunted...

...and ate the candy inside!

There's a nest of Phoebe birds on a ledge in the upper corner of their front porch. This is the second year that these birds have made their nest there. The baby Phoebe's have hatched!

After brunch and the Easter Egg hunt, we took the paddle boat out for it's maiden voyage on the lake. Jon, the kids, and I paddled our way around the lake.

See you later, Nana and Grandpa! We're never bringing this boat back!

Jon and I sat in front to pedal....

and the kids sat in the back.

We saw turtles sunning themselves on logs.

The lake was so beautiful.

These flowers were so fragrant... and I love the reflection in the water.

After we came back to shore, the kids got into their bathing suits and splashed around in the wading pool on the shaded deck.

It was a wonderful day!
