We had a busy, but really great Easter weekend.  On Saturday we all went to the zoo for their annual Bunny Bounce.  There was a special enclosed area for little ones to "hunt" eggs.  As you can see, they weren't too hard to find.  With a solid training day on Friday, Katherine and Annabelle did very well, despite not having any vessel in which to collect their eggs.  They seemed content with just what they could carry though.  Saturday was a glorious day, and the first time this year Seattle has hit 60 degrees.  On Sunday the rain was back, but we went to church very early, and the girls made it through their first full big church service (as there was no nursery open for that early service).  After a morning nap at home, we headed up to Bellingham for a huge Easter feast with Kirsten's family.  The girls got a kick out of exploring a new place and lots of extra love, played right through their afternoon nap, and got to enjoy another fun indoor egghunt.  Then it was back home after a very full day.  In other news, Annabelle finally has 4 upper teeth breaking through, and Katherine is getting closer and closer to walking unassisted.

Training Day

I figured the girls better learn what a plastic Easter egg looks like and get a little practice in before their first big hunt in a few days.  So we grabbed a few eggs and headed to the park today in the sunshine for some serious training.  They're ready.

Flower Girls

Yesterday we all went up to the Tulip Festival (just a bit north of Seattle), and had a blast playing and roaming around in the blooms.  There are fields and fields of daffodils and tulips, and we even found some alpacas.  I know this is a zillion photos, but we just had so much fun it was tough to whittle these down...

Solo Swinging

Yesterday we headed to the zoo to enjoy another sunny day, but first we stopped to play in a great playground right next to the zoo.  This playground had 2 swings side by side, so the girls got to try swinging solo for the first time.  Needless to say, they loved it.  At the zoo, we got to see the bears wrestling in the water, which was also pretty cool.
