Giant Easter post!

We didn't dye a ton of eggs this year, but we had some fun with the ones we did. Grandma was in Vegas, and she was missing out :( She always loves a good art project. Jordan came over to help though.
Time to get started!
Carter, of course, went straight for the blue dye!
Grandma bought a cool shiny paint set for the eggs. We all tried it out.
I held the egg for Teague (who looks insane here!). My fingertips were red for a couple days, but that's okay. Carter had a real smile here. I love it!
Fancy schmancy huh?
Ave decorated her eggs for two days in a row. She does a great job! This guy with the chin beard was my favorite!
Jordan came over to visit before prom. She looked beautiful!
Ave was writing down all the songs she was listening to. The checkmarks indicate how much she loves that song!
We went to Billings over spring break to visit with Erica, Landon, Hawkins, and Uncle Kyle. We also got to have a visit with Grandma and Grandpa Barsness who were on their way back from Cody. All in all we had a great time with our family! Jordan and Hawkins bonded at Red Lobster. He is such a good and handsome baby. He just goes with the flow!
These three shared some dessert!
Teague liked the orange segments the best!
Hawkins got a smashing new Duke hat at the mall. He looked fantastic in it! Auntie Erica also got Carter a black Puma one for his birthday (along with some Nerf darts), and Ave a Peppa Pig one, just because she's a nice Auntie.
Chuck E. Cheese time! It really wasn't too packed, and the kids had a blast.
Carter loved this snowmobile game.
We decided Hawkins is a grumpy sleeper! Erica had about six pictures of him like this on her phone. Luckily, he is not grumpy when awake!
This one just makes me laugh! Trying to get a good picture of four kids is never easy.
At least you can see Landon's face in this one. Teague looks pretty happy in both!
Just what a crazy guy needs - fun dip aka straight-up sugar!
Time to go swimming - once again, all four never cooperate!
That one is pretty cute :)
Billings just got a giant Scheel's store complete with Ferris Wheel and Thomas Jefferson statue! How exciting!
We all had lots of fun there. There is just so much stuff for kids: ferris wheel, picture booths, bowling, and of course, the escalator.
Mom and Jordan took the kids to a sports/gaming complex right by the hotel while we watched Duke's Final Four game. They had a blast! We joined them a bit later for some mini golf and laser tag. Hawkins was very helpful!
Two boys climbing on the fake rocks.
Landon has excellent form.
Avers looks so cute in her Peppa Pig hat!
Time for a late night treat at Perkins. We all enjoyed it! Everyone made it back home safely on Sunday. Thanks for a great spring break! Can't wait until we are all together this summer - we will add Lincoln right into these pictures!
Kyle brought our luggage home and brought over Easter Bunny presents! My kids are very into Lego Chima stuff right now.
On Monday, Grandma and Papa brought out more presents! These are some spoiled, spoiled kids!
Ave loved all her stuff!
Papa hid 56 plastic eggs outside - filled with either candy, money, carrots, cereal, sunflower seeds, green beans, or shrimp! He is so strange, but that endears him to these guys!
Teague was ready to search!
Carter had a good time!
Ave looked gorgeous in this Easter dress mom found for her at Costco! I love the colors.
Jordan looked very nice too!
Liam went through many obstacles to find this egg! He's so cute, and he and Teague always have fun together.
Teague called this stick his "grab-a-ratter". It helped him a lot!
Oh, I forgot, there were blueberries too. Teague's favorite!
Abbey Jean was able to stop by for a bit before work. I haven't seen her in a while, it was nice to visit!
The 4 egg hunters!
These 3 were having a good time together!
My girl is just pretty! We had a very fun Easter Monday, followed by...
Duke winning their 5th national championship! What could be better?
