Easter Morning

Reid's 2nd Easter...what a difference a year makes!  Here's my post from his 1st Easter.

Look what the Easter bunny brought!
His first, sleepy view of the Easter morning goodies.
Anyone wanna guess the first thing he pulled from the basket?
The BUS!

Lake Highlands Estates Neighborhood Association - Easter Egg Hunt

Just when you thought we'd had enough practice with the art of the Easter egg hunt, think again!

Our neighborhood association puts on an Easter egg hunt (complete with an appearance by the Easter bunny and of course, the petting zoo animals) every year.  They do a wonderful job of splitting up the egg hunting by age group.

By now, Reid's mastered the art, for sure!  I have no doubt that by next year, he'll be collecting eggs for his brothers as well.

Heading to Wallace Elementary (Reid's future school) for the egg hunt.
 Saying hi to his neighborhood friend, Clay, who he first met during Halloween last year.
You can see the cute trick or treaters together on this blog post.

This egg hunter doesn't need his mommy or daddy slowing him down.

He doesn't discriminate by color either!

Mommy said this a lot - "Soft touches, soft touches"
"Look dad, I caught the Easter bunny!"

Good Friday at the Arboretum

Reid and I took a trip to the Arboretum on the morning of Good Friday. Eddie Coker was performing, so this would make the 2nd time Reid's been able to enjoy an Eddie Coker concert.  So fun!

It was just the two of us, so my photos leave a lot to be desired!

Fair Oaks Spring Fling

The Fair Oaks Spring Fling was the first holiday party mommy got to attend at Reid's new school (I missed the Valentine's Day & little St. Patty's Day parties).

Although I missed the actual egg hunt (gasp!) because I was 15 minutes late, I got to spend some quality time with them on the playground as well as back in the classroom for music lessons and lunch time.  

I figured if I left while they were eating lunch, there would be no tears shed.  Think again, Michelle.  Other than that sad moment, we had a great time!  There are some cute little tikes in Reid's class too!

All boy!  He spent at least 5 minutes doing this.

Then he decided to show off his fence climbing skills to the girls (no, this is not allowed).

Back inside for music time while the teachers assembled their Easter lunches.

Wow!  We could all take tips from Ms. Maudie on how to corral a group of active toddlers.
Reid's fave time of day.  Take a look at that plate.  What do YOU think he'll go for first?
Yep, you guessed it...the cookie! Mommy was happy that he took a few bites and moved on from it fairly quickly (surprisingly of course!).  I'm hoping that means he doesn't have that crazy sweet tooth that I had while I was pregnant with him.
More music time action
