However, when it came to picking up eggs at the egg hunt, he wanted no part of it. He just sat in the grass and looked at the egg.
D had a GREAT time swinging! The stinky-face is his sign of approval.
Can you guess what he's asked for for his birthday?
After the egg hunt, we went to Nona's and dyed real eggs. D got his Easter treats from her, complete with a chocolate bunny which he LOVED!!
Sunday morning I completely forgot to take a picture of D checking out his goodies from the Easter Bunny (a book, too much sugar, goldfish, and a promise of an ice cream cone) AND I missed him in his Easter gear before church. There usually aren't any spare seconds before we dart out the door for church...and we're still always late.
I stayed in Derrick's Sunday School class with him (shhh, don't tell Justin!) and watched him devour his snack. Usually they eat cookies, but this time they had a special Easter cake.
He was very serious about his cake.
It was so yummy!
This was not a happy boy when the cake was gone. He was m-a-d!
It's so funny to watch Derrick in Sunday School. He's the youngest one in there, and he would much rather sit at the table and eat than go play with the other kids. Most of them don't even touch their snacks, they go off to play. Not our boy! He likes to sit there and EAT! Who would've thought!?
After church we went straight home because somebody was being incredibly rotten! Once Justin got home from work, we took D to get his very first ice cream cone, as promised by the Easter Bunny.
He kept growling "Booome!" (Pronounced much like bomb.)
It's his new way of telling you he wants 'some' but he growls it.
It's quite funny. The boy is serious about his food!
The Easter Bunny did a good job with this one! He LOVED it! That's my boy! :)
I hope you all had a nice Easter and took time away from the colorful eggs and yummy sugar to remember the real reason we celebrate Easter.
