Easter in Aberdeen

Happy Easter!  Hope you’re all having a lovely day.  It’s a rare moment of quiet here (we’re at my parent’s house in Aberdeen, so there’s always dogs barking, kids squealing, etc) so I figured I would hammer out a post quickly.

This was before we left for Aberdeen.  Dylan has now passed me up with his speed while running.  He SCHOOLED me in soccer.  I knew it was coming, but he’s only 5!  And judging by his enthusiasm for it (lets play again! lets play again! lets play again!), it appears he will be playing on the Brainerd league again this summer. Yay for me! ; )

Avery is still more of a sideline kinda gal. She tried, but she was no match for Mr Speedy.

This was the best picture I could get of him.  He’s just lucky I’m not posting the outtakes.  Someday he’ll thank me?  Ha.

And here we are at Gma and Gpa’s house.  Easter egg dye time!

And Avery’s personal favorite – TUPTAKES!

These are lemon lavender cupcakes.  Everyone liked them but Eric.  What a shocker!

Easter morning.  It took him FOREVER to locate this very easy to spot basket.  (insert eye roll)

Dylan wouldn’t get out of the way, so here’s the best I could do for a pic of Avery’s basket.

Here are the required after church photos.  Gma and Gpa were up first.  They were thinking back to their last photo shoot at Christmas. ; )

Then we were off to the park to fly their cheap-o kites they got from the Easter bunny.  I did NOT have high hopes, as I am told the Easter bunny only spent 97 cents on them.

They actually worked out quite well for them!  Not too hard for them to fly on their own b/c they were such tiny little kites.

Avery was hilarious with hers!  Anyone who has seen her running in person knows why. She’s hilarious when she runs!

I had to have a turn at it as well.  We used to fly kites every Easter at my Aunt and Uncle’s house in North Dakota.  I told Eric of all the kite-astrophies that would often happen and how anything could be repaired with some duct tape.  Even kites snagged by car antennas on vehicles traveling at 60 mph.  : )

Had to play on the playground since we were there.

And then we had to go, as Avos was hungry.  I know the feeling Avos.  I was hungeeee too!

Well, hope you’re all having a happy Easter!
