I'm just gonna say right now that this post is going to be picture-heavy. :) We've been having a lot of fun!
Annie got a beautiful Easter dress from GramE. Here she is before church . . .
. . . and then with Teddy Bear, putting the bow in his hair
We threw a springtime birthday party for our friend Spencer. It was so great with amazing cheese fondue and yummy cake! I made a bread braid for the fondue and we had a lovely time with friends . . . I forgot my camera, though. So this is the only picture I have of that night, Annie's party outfit:
Here are a few other pictures from our sunny days . . .
Annie is getting to be very good at folding her arms
waiting patiently for Grandma at the gate
what our yard looks like most afternoons . . .
So, today we went down to an Easter egg hunt in Reisterstown, MD, at the home where I grew up! It was so fun to bring Annie and relive a lot of my childhood memories. There were a ton of kids there, and they said that was only about half of their usual turnout!!
waiting with her basket for the hunt to begin!
working the crowd
and . . . GO!!
Annie picked up on the whole idea of hunting for eggs tremendously well :) See that competitive look in her eyes?
True to form, Annie picked up a cute, older boy along the way to help her with her loot :)
Leisa and Sam were in town visiting, so we got to see them, too!!
Heading home, so happy
Happy Easter, everyone!
