Easter and many activities!

My little Teague is looking so much older now. I can't believe he's 10 weeks already...still has that fabulous double chin!
My dad makes the best faces in pictures. He's so weird and such a fun Poppa!
They were helping Poppa put candy in eggs for his classes. He always has a scavenger hunt for extra credit for the few who show up on the day of the prom!
Thursday night we dyed eggs. It was, as usual, lots of fun. We had many fun decorations as you will see in a minute. Avery picked yellow for her first egg...imagine that!
Carter made about six blue eggs in a row. I almost forgot he made a pink one. He did a good job though.
I don't know what Ave was doing here. It almost looks like she's flamenco dancing. Teague got to hang out on the table and check it out too.
I made a egg each for my three little eggheads! I just love my silly babies.
Mom and Jordan got very creative with the beads and "hair"- we had some awesome looking eggs! I made another Eggy Gaga too, but she's not in this picture.
My smily boy is a nice little fella. We had a nice Friday together - I had the day off.
On Saturday, we had the best day. We decided to go over to Bozeman to check out the Museum of the Rockies. Right when we got there, we saw a laser show. Carter loved it!
Here's the three little fools in front of a giant triceratops. I love Avery's face in this. Notice how Carter is wearing his Fighting T-Rex shirt and dinosaur shoes. He was ready!
Teague slept almost the whole 2 hours we were there. He woke up for the last 10 minutes of our adventure. One cute lady in a wheelchair told me she had a doll that looked just like him 75 years ago - how cute is that?
Ave needed a little rest in the middle of all the fun. She just plopped herself down for about 30 seconds and was refreshed!
I thought all the dinosaur stuff was awesome, but the kids had the most fun at the Yellowstone exhibit. It was very kid friendly. Here's our best helper in the world (Jordan) with Avery trying to make the pressure geyser go off.
Carter and Landon loved catching fish with the magnetic fishing poles. They went back to this about four or five times!
Avery did a little camping in this tent. This exhibit was so cute. It had a little log cabin with tiny chairs and books to read. It also had binoculars for bald eagle watching. I'm just so glad we went!
Jordan made a fantastic bald eagle! They made some crafts before we left too. There was also a cool frog exhibit that we went to first. It was a very fun trip.
After the museum we went to Fuddruckers for some lunch. We know there are some games there to keep the kiddos entertained. Carter was so sweet all day. He told us we were the best Mom and Dad in the whole world!
He's growing so much. He never used to be able to do the balancing stuff at the dinosaur park. Now that's all he wants to do!
Avery had a fantastic time in the sandbox. The dinosaur park is really awesome. It was a perfect day for it too - lots of sun and not too crowded.
Erica, Jordan, and the boys played hide and seek for a long time there. This was one of Erica's awesome hiding spots!
Daddy gave Teague some pats while I played in the sand with Avery. It was so unexpectedly sunny we had to dig his baby hat from the hospital out of the diaper bag! What a perfect day trip!
All the kids got super spoiled on Easter. The Easter Bunny brought stuff to our house - then Poppa and Grandma's house had a whole bunch of stuff (including this awesome hat for Carter) - then Abb, Jord, and Terri brought baskets over too! Thanks everyone!
Teague had a nice little nap with Daddy in the morning before the festivities really got going. It gave me a chance to help Mom with the tons of food we had!
Time for the egg hunt! Jordan helped Ave find lots of eggs around the house. They both looked beautiful!
Carter did a good job finding the eggs on his own. I just walked around and took pictures of his detecting.
Abbey and Jordan both looked absolutely gorgeous - I remember when they were the littlest kids at the egg hunt! Makes me feel a bit old.
Nicole's boys came over right in time for the first egg hunt. There were a couple of them since it was so nice. Here's all five of the "hunters" outside: Ave, Landon, Austin, Connor, and Carter.
Dad surprised us all when the eggs were opened. We thought he just filled them with candy that morning, but there were some eggs with olives, carrots, or bacon! Landon luckily got a bacon one - his favorite!
Teague got a fabulous outfit from Grandma and Poppa to wear that day. He was a very good boy - here's a little half smile for everyone!
This is by far the nicest Easter we've had in at least 10 years. The kids played outside forever with their new bubble guns and water blasters. Avery looked beautiful in her dress too!
Avery asked Daddy to color with her. They collaborated on a picture of Beauty and the Beast - it was lovely. Hope everyone had a great Easter!
