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.
