Our Easter

We hope everyone had the happiest holiday weekend & a great start to this new week!!  I'm excited to finally share some pictures from our Easter Sunday, we had such a great time celebrating for the last time as a family of three!  As soon as we woke up that morning, we told Waverly the Easter bunny came & of course, she immediately responded with, "I don't like him".  We know. ;)  After finally convincing her that he had come & left (with treats for her), she agreed to come downstairs & loved what he left her!  She went through every single egg with so much excitement, read her new book to her babies, & then just as I thought, asked us to open every single chapstick while she rolled it on about twenty times in a row.  Then we had "bagel bunnies" for breakfast, a girl & a boy, both bunnies she actually liked. :)


Holidays are always crazy our way, we have two big sides of the family to see & it's important to us to try to fit it all in, while trying to have time for just us, too.  We had two brunches, one with my in-laws & then one at my house with my side of the family, Waverly got to hunt for eggs again with her cousin & then spend time with all her grandparents, aunts, & uncles (one of her favorite things to do).  The weather could not have been better, we of course fit in a few pictures, I can't get over what a little lady Waverly looks like in them or that we will have two girls (close to ages one & four!) in these pictures next year!

Even though we were all exhausted, we ended the day with a family walk to feed the ducks at the end of  our street & dinner outside on our porch.  Overall, another memorable holiday with our little & extended families, it's bittersweet to see Easter go but we are super excited about what is to come over the next few months!!

  1. What wonderful pictures. It sure looked like a lovely family day. My husband's family lives in Ohio and when we go home for holidays it's a lot of traveling around to make sure we see everyone. I wouldn't have it any other way, though. Seeing family is so important on holidays. :)

  3. Loving that you guys had to assure Waverly that the bunny had come AND gone before she was willing to check out what he'd left. She's like, "nope, nope, nope", lol!:) I bet it was just darling watching her putting on all her "lipstick" - such a girly girl. She'll have so much fun with a little sister. And, as usual, loving your Easter style, Mama! Your dress is super cute - I am dying for it to come back in stock soon so I can order it for our beach trip this summer. It's gorgeous, and for such a great price:) And of course, Waverly and your hubby look adorable as well!

  19. Her Easter dress is perfection and I love that you had to talk her into leaving her room. Aria isn't a fan of anything that visits at night...santa leprechauns or bunnies. She loves all the things that they do, she just does not want to talk about them visiting ha.
