For Easter dinner, we had the whole family together…except for Matt. The kids swam in the pool, we all ate dinner and stuffed our bellies, and then it was time for the egg hunt. The boys hid in our room while all of the adults went outside and hid the eggs. It was fun watching them run around and collect the eggs…all looking for the infamous golden egg. Liam found the egg…next year we might have to have a few more…. 🙂
I love this picture because Matty didn’t know that I was watching him and he was sneaking eggs out of Davy’s basket and putting them in his…
After the hunt, the boys just couldn’t resist digging into their eggs to see what kind of candy they had to eat…bring on the sugar. 🙂
Sarah and the boys are down visiting for spring break and Easter, so today (Good Friday) we decided to take them fishing on the pier at Anna Maria and then spend the day playing on the beach.
We fished for about an hour, only two of the four poles were working and for whatever reason we only caught two fish. The first one I caught with in seconds of tossing in my line, and the second one Charlie caught. He was so proud. The bravest of the five boys was Emmett. He liked to pet the fish.
After fishing we decided to walk over to Two Scoops for some lunch. We figured it would just be easier to eat lunch now and then not worry about having to bring them in off of the beach. Hot dogs and ice cream all around!
I have to say this was one of the windiest days I have ever seen here. The day was beautiful, but we laughed saying that if we didn’t get sunburned then we would definitely get wind burned. Liam, Davy and Charlie surfed the waves for hours, while Matty and Emmett played in the surf and dug in the sand.
Sarah and I layed on the sheet, drank Malibu buckets from the Sandbar, and took turns chasing the boys back down the beach when they drifted off to far.
The last thing the boys did before we left was to all get together and dig a big hole. We loved watching them play together…. Much love for them. 🙂
