Pre-Easter Festivities

We enjoyed some pre-Easter activities this week.  We dyed eggs on Friday.  Parker is still working on understanding the concept, but he had fun playing with the stickers.  I was hoping to make deviled eggs, but they ended up a little undercooked.  I had them perfected at the old house, but will have to tweak things on our electric range.  They were still edible, just not how iId hoped.

 We got several inches of snow leading in to the weekend.  We had planned a trip to Two Harbors to celebrate some family birthdays and Easter, but there was close to a foot of snow a couple hours north of us that was causing major road issues on the highway, so we stayed close to home.
 The annual Easter Egg hunt in my parent's town was changed to a drive-thru experience.
 Parker was a bit timid with the Easter bunny, but didn't freak out.  When I ask him to say "hi", he kind of squealed and kindly said "bye".  The person in the costume did great and kind of hid behind the door, but still waved and was really sweet.
 We stopped at my parents' house to check out the haul, then headed to lunch with my nephew, Jayden, as an early birthday celebration.
 Both kids did really well at the restaurant.  Parker had fun rolling the crayons across the table to Grandpa and Jayden.  We had a tough run when Esme was a baby and we stopped eating out a restaurants for a while, but we may be able to try again since we've had a couple successful trips.
Happy early birthday Jayden!
