All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt! ~Lucy Van Pelt, "Peanuts"

Those that know me know that this quote is a good fit for me...this might just have to be my new motto! What can I say...this Easter was extremely special. More special than most because we now had 2 Easter baskets sitting on the kitchen table from the Easter Bunny. We had two kids to get dressed on Easter morning for Church. And we had 2 kiddos with us all day as we enjoyed food, family, and egg hunts!

I caught myself saying this to Blake several times this weekend, but we are EXTREMELY blessed with 2 beautiful children. I don't remember a time when we didn't have them in our lives...though we are always exhausted and running around crazy with things to do because of our family of 4, I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Saturday, we headed to RiverView Mounds off Hwy 12 for some Easter fun! Chloe was excited for the pony ride. But, as soon as we walked in, I spotted the Easter Bunny. I hadn't had time to take the kids to the mall to get their picture made so I thought it was a great opportunity. Chloe wanted nothing to do with it. Carter (my extremely smiley and laid back child) could have cared less....we sat him right down and he instantly began smiling at all the strangers! I got the cutest picture of him that I will have to scan in tomorrow. While there, Chloe did an egg hunt, rode the barrel train, and rode a pony! She and I also rode the hay ride and got some history on the Farm...there are some Native American Mounds back on the property that have been there for centuries and are on the Historical Map (never would have known that)! After that, we headed to eat Mexican with Papa!
 Sunday, we headed to Easter Service at Grace Community Church.  The Service was amazing!  Chloe thoroughly enjoyed her time in Grace Acres.  We then headed home for nap and LOTS of eating at Birdie's house and then Grandy and Jenks' house!  It was a fabulous weekend with lots of great memories!
