We do Easter baskets on Saturday, so we have kind of two different holidays (like we do for Christmas Eve and Christmas).Reuben, during the weeks before, was very insistent that there was no Easter Bunny, that it was just mommy and Daddy. And since we won't out right lie, we may lie by omission but not commission, we've been trying to convince him that it is fun to pretend, and he need's to so that Simeon has a chance to have an Easter Bunny.
Regardless, Reuben was very excited to look for and find his basket, and help Simeon.
We then got ready and headed down to American Fork for an Easter Egg hunt and Lunch with Justin's brother. The boys had so much fun playing with cousins, and it was nice to see J and K again.
Reuben had a hard time waiting the couple of seconds to let the littlest kids have a head start. He's not used to being one of the older kids, or being with enough kids that there are older kids and younger kids.
Simeon found one, opened it, found a jelly bean to pop in his mouth, and was off to play in the car.
Reuben helped Simeon out by putting the eggs that overflowed from his basket into Simeon's.
After lunch we jumped in the car to drive to North Salt Lake, for an Easter Egg Hunt and Dinner with My Aunt, Grandma, Sisters, Cousins and their kids.
It was the same thing, Simeon found one egg, wanted to eat the contents and was content to wander around until he decided maybe he wanted another treat. Reuben, again, was all over the egg hunt.
We got home ready for bed, and Justin had come down with a cold. This usually happens to him after high stress periods of time. The day he finally relaxes he get's sick, and unfortunately that was Saturday. The boys seemed to enjoy their day, and it was nice to spend the day surrounded by family.
