They loved the pageant SO much we had to go again. This time Daddy, Noni and Papa got to come. We went early and ate dinner while we waited FOREVER for the play to start. While we waited we got to meet the cast. There's John the Baptist, one of the three kings, and a Roman soldier. Leave it to Tucker to say funny things really loud, like: "Why is Jesus King of the Juice?" or "Peter? Hey, like Peter in Spider Man!". Everybody around us was laughing, hopefully with us!
Of course we colored Easter eggs. They did really well, we only had one fatality. Never mind that Tucker's eggs are pink!
While we waited for lunch/dinner to be cooked we did what we do best, hung out and chatted! These days in the desert are so nice because we're forced to turn off the busy, noisy everyday things and relax and talk with our families. Tucker wanted to bring his shades and his "dirty baseball" which he carried around most of the morning. Tater colored with all my little cousins. Yes, those are all my first cousins: Tatum, Kamry/Kennedy, Stori, Kamry/Kennedy, and Ruby. This last picture is of our cookout set up. Gotta love those awnings, they saved us- it was a warm, windless day and without those we would have baked!
He got this bat as an early Easter gift. Ready, set, swing batter!
I was even brave and hit a few myself. I did pretty dang good for not having played in who knows how long. Embarrassingly enough I was sore the next day. Who knew swinging a bat was an ab exercise?
Tucker getting serious about finding some loaded eggs.
Maybe I grew up spoiled but I ALWAYS had a new dress on Easter and I think it's only fare to carry on the tradition. This year Grandma bought Tatum her dress. I love when Tatum feels pretty. She smiles different and walks different. When she feels pretty she is always so excited to show her dad what she looks like. Chris is great, he oohs and aahs at how lovely she is. I love to watch her stand and admire herself in the mirror, she's so cute how she just stares.
What is a dress that doesn't twirl? Before we can decide if we like a dress or not the true test is the Twirling Test. Fortunatley this one twirled to Tatum's expectations.
Don't they look like they're at prom? It's the cuttest dang prom picutre I've ever seen!
For dinner we went to the Anderson's. It was SO yummy, Eve is a great cook. But before we ate we had the Easter egg hunt. This year there were even prizes for the adults. Chris and I faired pretty well, he got $30 and I got a shirt of my choosing from Urban Outfitters. Over all a successful hunt! Tucker and Sam are BFF and Tatum loves her Auntie Brooke and Auntie Aimee (Amster as Tater calls her)
