Evan and Caitlin

I wish Kristin and her family still lived close to us, because the kids had so much fun playing together while they were in town. My cousin Kristin has 2 adorable kids. Evan is 3 1/2 and Caitlin will be 2 in June. They moved to Arizona last summer because her husband Danny got a job offer there. Kristin and her family came to visit over Easter and they were here for a couple of weeks, and while we were not able to get together for Easter, Grandma had us over for dinner one night.

It was so entertaining to watch the kids play. The last time they were together, Connor was too little to really play with them, so it was like seeing them together for the first time. It was hard to get very many pictures of them together because they are constantly on the go, but I will share what I have...

Here are the kids last Easter
What a difference a year makes!

Happy Easter!

Spoiled much? In all fairness though not ALL of these presents were from us. Some of them were from the Grandparents too, but it's safe to say that Connor had a very nice Easter. He had a blast playing with all his new toys Easter morning.

Here he is repairing his chair with the tool set that Daddy got him

Playing with playdoh

So excited!
After Connor's nap we headed out to Aunt Angie's and had a delicious dinner. Then Connor got to partake in his very first Easter egg hunt at Angie's. Easter egg hunts at Angie's are a big deal. She lives on 10 acres so they usually have a big outdoor Easter egg hunt. Unfortunately the crummy weather prevented us from having the traditional outdoor Easter egg hunt, so the moved it to the basement.

Connor kind of got the idea of hunting for Easter eggs. I'm sure he will really be into it next year!

After a fun busy day, Connor had enough Easter and was ready to go home. I think he was asleep before we even got out of Angie's driveway!

I was telling the girls a cute story about Connor the other day and Carolyn said I should share it on my blog, so here you go Carolyn.

So Connor has tried a few chips here and there, and of course he loves them. The other day I was letting him play in the pantry while I was fixing dinner. He grabbed a bag of chips, not knowing what it was until he actually opened the bag. When he got the bag opened though he got so excited and let out a squeal of delight and yelled "Chips!" with a huge smile on his face. It was a wonderful discovery for him and it was so cute that I had to let him have a chip. Plus, he said the word chips! A new word is always exciting!
