Easter Weekend Part 1

We had suuch a fun Easter this year. We did the normal "Easter things" with Bryson last year, but this year, he was actually able to participate and he had so much fun! I can't wait for the day that he will know and understand the real meaning of Easter. :)

We knew Bryson was going to have a lot of egg hunts this year, so the entire week prior to Easter, we practiced hunting eggs at the house. I put gummie snacks and M&Ms inside the eggs and after a couple of practice rounds, he got the egg hunting down pat!

His first egg hunt was with his school on Thursday and he was a pro already. His teachers said he knew exactly what to do and where to put the eggs. Woohoo! Practicing paid off! haha :)

Egg Hunt #2 was at our church on Saturday. It didn'tstart until 10:10 and we got there a little early, so we had to wait. Bryson didn't like that idea and tried to sneak under the gate a few times. He was ready for those eggs! haha

He was in the "under 2" age group. All the kids were ADORABLE!!!
Bryson knew that there was candy in the eggs so he decided that there was no need for those little round plasic things, he just picked up all the candy and left the egg. HAHA!

 He was SO funny running all over the place. This is mid-sprint for an egg!! It cracks me up!

I love our church. They always go ALL out for any kind of activity. They even had a petting zoo, which was a huuuge hit!

After the egg hunt, we headed down to the Dallas Zoo. They remodeled the zoo a few years ago and it is fantastic!! The weather was great and Bryson really loved seeing all the animals.

We started off in the Children's side at Petting Zoo. It was really fun for him to see all these animals in person. He knows what they look like in books, but to see them in real life is so different.

Then, we went on to the rest of the zoo...

Michael and I had so much fun watching Bryson get so excited about the animals! We can't wait to go back!!


  1. Super cute family pic of the three of you!!!

    Ava did the same thing. She recognized that it was what was inside that she wanted, and would pick up the egg, dig out the candy and toss the egg aside! Haha!

  2. I love the picture of him bent over picking the egg off the ground! Just makes me smile:) Happy Easter!!!
