"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

We hope you and your families had a wonderful Easter holiday celebrating the resurrection of our Lord! We had fun with different activities, but can't wait until Carson is old enough to hear the Easter story and know the true meaning behind Easter. We visited the Millenia Mall with Hannah and Aunt Jamie to see the Easter bunny.
They both did great and there were no tears and no long lines!
Carson's first egg hunt was with his best bud Landon at a park in Wekiva. They both were not so sure about the hundreds of people crowded around. It was a bit overwhelming, even for the parents!
They tried to participate when the ropes were let down and the signal to start the hunt was given. Daddy tried to get Carson to pick up the eggs, but again, a little overwhelming.
After the craziness was over, we headed to the bounce house, much more their style!
The Saturday before Easter, we attempted to color Easter eggs with Carson. He was able to grasp the concept of dropping the eggs in the dye, but was quick to want to take them out or drop more and more in at the same time. Long story short, our morning turned into a few tantrums, but we managed to get a few eggs colored! :)
After egg coloring, it was off to Nana and Papa's for another fun egg hunt. This one was held at the Rock Springs Country Club.
It was well organized and age appropriate for Carson. He was so excited to see all the eggs spread out over the green.

The egg hunt begins! There were not as many kids at this egg hunt which made it much more relaxing for everyone. The kids were able to take their time and pick up the eggs one by one. Carson got the hang of it very quickly!
Afterwards, Carson found some flowers and had to stop and smell them.

After church, we headed to Nana and Papa's for some lunch and fun.
Nana helps Carson open an egg he found.
Papa got out the tractor (aka "Choo Choo") and Carson had to be the first one to ride! Hannah got a ride too.
Afer fun at Nana and Papa's, we all headed up to the Villages to see more family, and visit Great Grandma. We had a wonderful Easter holiday!
