Normally, we attend a couple of Easter egg hunts, get a few pictures, eat lunch together, etc. NOT THIS YEAR! We were out of town during the church egg hunt and the schools here don't have a party. Our family was scattered after church in Atlanta........ so no pictures. My special lunch was chicken salad in the car. The kids attacked their Easter baskets as soon as we got home destroying the opportunity to get a picture.
We did however........get to spend the weekend with most of my family Easter weekend. On the way home from L2L Sunday, we stopped off at the outlets and scored some great deals! My family enjoyed an Easter dinner at Steak n Shake with friends! We didn't need Easter pictures anyways.........our outfits did not match! I did get a few pictures of the girl's Easter surprises.........the next day!
So that is what I am going to share with you now.........day old Easter pictures.
The bunny that came to our house decided to go the healthier route. Instead of a bunch of candy.......he brought athletic wear!
Each girl got a top, shorts and a hat which I plan to monogram.
I guess a cute outfit makes working out more fun. The girls stayed outside for a majority of the day. Ella would come back in occasionally to tell me how many laps or jumps with the jump rope she accomplished.
I am running in The Color Run this weekend. I promised the girls if they train and work hard that we would sign up to do The Color Run in Birmingham this September.
Ella has jumped on board with full speed ahead. Laney on the other hand needs a little more encouraging. Hopefully, her new athletic wear will help!
The girls got a few other things in their basket like.......
a bag with their picture on the front and our family picture on the back..........
some of those crazy socks that are in style right now...........
Ella's look like feet with painted toenails and sandals.
She also got a matching outfit for her American Doll.
Tip for all the American Girl fans:
I have found this seller on Ebay called Ann Loren. She has several reasonably priced cute outfits for girls with the doll outfit to match.
Although this Easter was not the most spectacular, we were alive, healthy and together........for some of it at least.
Maybe next year I will actually touch an Easter egg!
