Easter fun

Easter festivities this year for us... an all weekend hosting affair.  We had friends and families join us for our first ever glow in the dark egg hunt.  It was so much fun! (Idea from Pinterest) I found packs of glow sticks in the Target dollar spot... gotta love stopping by there.

The kids pitched in and 'cracked' the glow sticks while the adults crammed the eggs shut.  Word of advice: use large eggs. *Small eggs are not conducive for stuffing glow sticks in. *Tape does help!

The night pictures really don't do it justice... it was pretty to look out and see all these little glowing eggs everywhere!  And the kids absolutely loved it! This will definitely be an annual tradition for us!

Easter Sunday we all headed to church and gathered again for a traditional egg hunt. 
Only problem with egg hunts is once is never enough. :)

Color Madness - ATL

A first for me - I ran without timing myself and really didn't care. It was for fun and with friends.  I participated in the Atlanta Color Run on Saturday morning... definitely a race you have to do! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to do it and to be around friends at the same time.

Checking in for the race... we decided to buy an extra race shirt,
so we could end up with a clean and a colored version.

On to the pink station:

Overall - a ton of fun! We are already talking about doing another one!!

The rest of our Spring Break we spent at home... relaxing and resting; practicing and playing some baseball. We even had a special visitor fly in for the occassion!  Mimi spent the rest of the week with us.

Spring Break Getaway

We were able to get away for a couple of days at the beginning of Spring Break and it was so much fun! We spent a couple of nights in Chattanooga, TN visiting the aquarium, IMAX theater and a children's museum.  Highlights of the trip for the kids:  butterfly garden, petting sting rays at aquarium, IMAX movies, and Top it Off frozen yogurt.
