Easter 2014

Sometimes the best kinds of holidays are the ones where you don't take too many photos, because for me, that means I was a lot busier spending time in the scene, rather than trying to capture it. Granted, we're left with just a handful of photographs to remember the day, but we did manage to get one of Charlie in an Easter basket to commemorate his first Easter, so I'd call that a success. It was a great day full of delicious food, lots of baby cuddles, and a few Cadbury eggs too. We spent it at my parents' in the warm Phoenix weather and soaked up the sun all day long. I so enjoyed having all of the people I love in one place- and I also loved how completely pressure free and easy it was. We did very simple baskets with a couple of books, a few small toys, and some healthy snacks. If I've learned one thing over the course of these past 3.5 years of parenting it's that most of the time kids don't need over the top anything. Simple and heartfelt is the way to go, and those are the things they remember the most.

  5. Aww what a nice way to spend Easter! In South America we don't do the Easter Bunny thing (I still can't get a hold of it), but I do love seeing all the pictures and posts of traditions of other countries! Your boys look so handsome! Henry is looking more and more like you each day, and Charlie has that little glint in his eye that is so adorable.

    Loved the pics :)

  6. Great photos! Your boys are so adorable <3

    I couldn't agree more with your simple and heartfelt sentiment. Over the top parties/holiday celebrations/etc. seem to be one more thing that take us out of the moment instead of enjoying whatever we're supposed to be celebrating.

  7. I was curious if you all celebrated Easter, since we're on the same page in regards to religion/spirituality...we decided to embrace the commercial/fun side of the holiday with the kids. Happy to see you did as well. ;)
