What is in there????
Oh - it's a floppy bunny. What fun (and what great entertainment in the car on the way to Amarillo!)
Our next stop on the Easter train of fun (yes, it's getting late as I write this), was at the Amarillo zoo. On Saturday, they had all sorts of special activities at the zoo, so we decided to check it out. Well, I hadn't counted on it being 45 degrees until midday. And I guess I forgot about the wind. So the kiddos look a little cold, but we had them dressed in the warmest things I had packed ....
But he did like the donkeys:
Saturday continued with more festivities - egg dyeing with the Stebbins clan:
Then it was time for the Easter egg hunt. Sarah decided not to hunt - instead she got to hide the eggs. Susie & I were supposed to be helping, but I think there was more chatting (at least on my part) than hiding. Sarah did a great job! I think we had over a 100 eggs to hide, so it was no small task . . .
And they're off! Gracie was collecting those eggs pretty fast. I think was being a sweet older cousin and taking her time to make sure our kids found enough!
Some were better egg hunters than others ....

And finally, getting a snack ready for the Easter bunny. Thank goodness Grandma had some lettuce tucked away in the fridge, since all the carrots were gone. Then the girls decided some grapes and walnuts would be good, too. Yummy, right?
Look at those late night, goofy with excitement kids!
Checking out the loot on Easter morning, before church. And those bunny whiskers just wouldn't wash off...
More pictures of JM to come - I've still got his birthday post(s) to do!
