Happy Easter!

So, my peeps, Easter means lots and lots of photos. I apologize in advance for the overabundance of cuteness. My only excuse... how is a mother to choose??
I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend with plenty of Reese's Peanut Butter eggs and Starburst jelly beans!

Friday Boo and I went shopping for his Easter outfit. You might have seen me - I was the crazy lady in Baby GAP sitting in the middle of the floor with about ten outfits strewn around me mixing and matching, trying them on Boo and taking an occasional picture with my phone to send to The Hubs for advice? I only got one or two weird looks. Nothing I can't handle.

I was asked by a sincerely concerned employee toward the end of my shopping tirade if I knew there was a dressing room in the back. The thought hadn't crossed my mind. No seriously. I'm not being sarcastic. It actually didn't cross my mind that a store with the word 'Baby' in the name geared toward people under the age of 5 has dressing rooms. Only slightly embarrassed, I politely told her I was almost done and continued my quest for the perfect Easter outfit.

Boo was surprisingly patient. He found a couple things he wanted to try on and REALLY wanted to buy. Including the sunglasses you see in the above picture. When I told him we couldn't buy them there was a serious meltdown. This wasn't a spoiled meltdown, but a heart-broken one. Either way it was not a good experience and I couldn't give in. After much sunglasses-coveting sadness I finally decided to secretly buy them and let the Easter Bunny take the credit.

When he saw them in his Easter basket it was worth it. He was so very happy... You'll notice he didn't take them off the rest of the day.

The day began with a sleepy Boo following a trail of jelly beans that started from his room and lead to his Easter basket. The silly Easter Bunny's assistant (The Hubs) spent way too much time carefully laying each jelly bean down one by one the night before only to find that Boo doesn't follow rules on Easter. Upon seeing the floppy ears of his basket peeking out from behind the couch, he ditched the trail and ran like mad to his treasure.






What? Most kids go on Easter egg hunts in a shirt and tie and sunglasses. It's normal.

After our Easter egg hunt The Hubs made us crepes. Yes, I said CREPES, people! It's his own recipe and they bring me much happiness.

Of course, I had to document the occasion, much to The Hubs' enjoyment:




And then Boo got naked and ran through the sprinklers.


The End.
