Easter morning started off with Easter baskets...big surprise there :) I think Cohen got a bit spoiled this year, with some swimming things, new church outfit, balls, and tons of eggs just to name a few things. It was fun to watch his reaction when he walked in the room and saw it all lay ed out, he just stared and it then went for the balls! He ate a bunch of candy, I actually think he ate more this day then he has his whole life. We stopped on the way to church to see Cams Brother Cory and his family. I love that we live just a block away from each other and are able to go to church together, I'm sure Cohen and Riley will enjoy it more as they get older. It was a nice day and were able to walk there and back. Unfortunately Beth didn't feel well and had to leave early.

That afternoon Gingers Aunt and Uncle (Debbie and Kevin) came over with their son Ethan and Ginger's sister Jenny. We all dyed Easter eggs together, which is always fun. I think Ethan had more fun dying his face then the actual eggs. Cohen even helped by putting on stickers.

Cohen loves to be outside and runs to the door the second it opens and throws quit the little tantrum if he doesn't get to go out. He knows just how to get Debbie to do what he wants and ended up going on a walk with her while everyone else finished dying Easter eggs. I'd say he has her wrapped around his little finger.

After dinner everyone went outside to "roll eggs"... Debbie said she did this when she was young with my dad. If your not sure what this is you aren't the only one, Cam and I were pretty clueless as well. I guess the idea is to crack the hard boiled eggs for when you peel them later. You are suppose to roll them down a steep grass hill. Our hill wasn't quit steep enough so the boys ( Cam, Ethan, and Kevin ) decided to play catch with them instead, it was pretty fun to watch.

Cohen's first Easter Egg Hunt

Last year was Cohen's first Easter but he was to small to participate, so this year we decided to do a small Easter egg hunt for him (we pretty much just threw some eggs around the backyard) on Saturday. It probably seems kinda cheesy but he was cute about it and had fun. We handed him his little bucket that Aunt Debbie gave him and let him go. At first he just stood there holding the bucket and staring at the eggs he could see, but eventually decided that they looked like balls and took off after them. Once he got one for each hand he would drop one back on the ground and go for the new one (didn't get the whole put them in the bucket idea). Then he realized there was candy inside and brought the eggs to us to open for him the rest of the day.
