We had a busy Easter weekend. Both our families live close so we have lots of get togethers for special occasions. April has 3 birthdays as well, which we celebrated this weekend too.
First we had Easter/Birthdays at my parents house. After brunch, the kids opened checked out their Easter basket and then did an egg hunt! Beckham opens each egg as he hunts for them to make sure there is something in it. He had a blast hunting.
Birthday fun! Can you tell he really likes cake?
Saturday night, Ryan went to the Rangers game, so it was just Beckham and I hanging out! A much needed bath.
On Sunday, we went to church for Easter service. Can’t believe I didn’t get a family picture, but here is our little one.
Then we headed to Texas Roadhouse for lunch. Despite these pictures, Beckham was pretty disobedient. Nonetheless, here he is giving me his new “funny” look, trying to open a peanut shell, and checking out the drink menu.
After lunch, we went home
to rest before we went to Ryan’s parents house for Easter. The boys took naps, while I did some things. We were planning on taking pictures after dinner, so I worked like a maniac trying to get everything we needed to change clothes (put on make-up and do hair for me) and anything we would need for the pictures.
We had hamburgers at my in-laws and Beckham got to do another egg hunt and open another Easter basket.
It was a great Easter weekend…until we pulled up to the park and it started raining. I was so stinkin’ mad! I spent hours picking out our outfits, packing things up, doing my make-up and hair, and the overall planning of getting the fam ready for family/maternity pictures. We were bummed.
This is what we kind of looked like before our photo session was rained out. I ended up changing our color scheme/outfits for our reschedule. Beckham had on red converse shoes that you can’t see (I had on red boots too). Pretty cute. We ended up going blue and orange. I’ll post the pics as soon as they’re edited. *We couldn’t get B to smile.
Here is a sneak peak (these are ghetto unedited phone pics off my brother’s camera). And fyi, B was horrible for the photo shoot. To his defense, bugs were attacking us.
And here is our Easter basket for Beckham. Not sure why I even got him one. And to keep it real…he just opened it yesterday 🙂 We were in a rush Sunday morning and I forgot. All of these items are from the Dollar store (some cheaper than $1), so it was a very inexpensive basket. I already had eggs and just filled a couple with a piece of candy.
#oliviaeveryday2014 Week 16 Pictures:
Day 106: Kisses! #ibribedhim #withchocolate
Day 107: I want them ALL! Every.single.one. I refrained, but then bought some earrings instead. And some maternity shirts. Already had the red and beige…
Day 108: Tackling the day in my little red shoes!
Day 109: Big BROWN eyes. His eyes are so dark. I’m assuming they will lighten up to my color as he grows.
Day 110: Happy Easter!
Day 111: On Monday, I had to run an errand in a shopping village nearby. We walked to the popcorn shop and Beckham wanted pink popcorn. He also told me to “sit down and eap.” He is serious about his popcorn!
Day 112: Maternity pictures sneak peek (as you saw above). My brother did an amazing job, considering I’m super self-conscious about my look right now. Can’t wait to see them. I should have done them before I started swelling, but I didn’t swell this early with B. Memories 🙂
A few more from the week (other than Easter):
S’mores cupcakes. I made up the recipe and totally FAILED! But I am going to re-do the correct way and share the recipe so stay tuned.
I found this selfie on my phone after we went shopping. I love that he captured the “Mr. Independent” t-shirt in the background. That he is!
Sunday morning getting donuts! I love his sweet face!
I made this sign for our shoot and wanted to make sure the text would show in the photo, so I snapped this beforehand. I love how it turned out…he looks like he’s excited to get a brother.
Whew, on to a new week!
