Oh my goodness was this long Easter Weekend busy busy! I told a friend that it was almost like Christmas only condensed into four days.  We had lots of fun though and especially enjoyed the resurrection of Jesus with our new church family! We were busy enough that I am going to divide the weekend into two posts. The days leading up to Easter Sunday and then Easter Sunday.

Thursday was Elle's last day of school and also the day of her Kindergarten Easter Egg hunt and Easter class party. I went to help hide eggs and then was there for her hunt and her party.  I say it every time I do post that involves her class parties but I am always so thankful I get to come to her events at school! I do want to add a little note here. Kenny and I were watching the video I took of Elle hunting eggs and laughing because she has always been a very thoughtful egg hunter.  She picks up each egg and looks at it and then calmly and sometimes even slowly walks to the next egg. She has done this since she was a baby! It is so cute! At least we think so.  Also, at one point I was standing 20-30 feet away from her and I saw her give some of her eggs to another girl who did not have very many. She herself did not have near as many as lots of the other kids did and she was still willing to share. I was so proud of her!

They were so excited to open their eggs and Elle was thrilled because she got a dollar in one of hers!

On Friday the kids were out of school and after some good experiences taking Walker to things and him sitting still, we decided to take him along with Elle to his first movie! We went to see Boss Baby. It was such a fun outing for the four of us. Walker was a complete angel. An angel! He did not like sitting in his own seat or the booster but happily sat in my lap the entire time and munched on his popcorn and candy.  He would point out the things happening on screen and just was so into the whole thing.  We were so proud of him! We are so excited he can come with us to movies now and also that we won't always have to pay a babysitter when we take Elle to the movies!

This picture cracks me up! Elle was excited to have him there too!

Picking out their movie candy.
Saturday morning the Easter Bunny came early. We arranged this so the baskets weren't a distraction on Easter Sunday. It worked well for us. Elle got lots of summer essentials along with some My Little Pony toys and Walker got everything Paw Patrol because he is so obsessed. Although he really only cared about the candy for a long while until he got his fill and then was pumped for his new Paw

Excited about his candy. Was so sweet and shared with Daddy.
Later that morning we headed over to the church for the church Easter Egg Hunt.  It was divided by ages so Kenny and I split up. He went with Walker and I stayed with Elle. This was Walker's first official egg hunt and we weren't sure what he would do.  He was similar to Elle in that he was pretty cautious. Once he figured out there was candy in those eggs he got really excited and figured it all out but by that time the hunt was over. He immediately ate every bit of candy in his eggs. He is so different than Elle who doesn't really care for candy that much. She will be eating on her Easter candy for months! Elle was a little faster during this egg hunt after having her school hunt. After they were done hunting eggs they had some cookies and refreshments which Walker also enjoyed and then we went and had a lovely lunch out on the patio of Bulldog Burger with our friends the Walters family!
Walker was a little shy when we first got to the fellowship hall.
