Happy Easter!


Happy Easter from my little bunnies!

I thought this was neat...
'Tell your PEEPS, Easter is about the Lamb not the Bunny'

True, but I couldn't resist these adorable bunny ears when I came across them at World Market.  

I hope you're able to celebrate this amazing day with loved ones.
He is Risen!

Illinois Wedding | Swimming, Dancing, & Shirley Temple Drinking

Adam's cousin got married last weekend, so we loaded up the kids and made our way to the QuadCities.  We had lunch at Sippy's in Davenport before crossing the river to Illinois.  We requested an early check in to allow for an afternoon of swimming and a quick nap before the wedding began!  Below are a few photos {camera & iPhone} of our little family followed by a couple of  videos of the kids dancing.  I love this stage with the kids.  They have so much fun at weddings now.  Plus they both got their first taste of Shirley Temple's so I'm sure that didn't hurt!  ;)

Easter Brunch, Books, & a Playlist


We're hosting Easter this year, a first for us.  We've actually never hosted our family for any holiday, so I'm super excited.  We're heading to church before brunch, so I had to plan things that are super low maintenance.  I also ordered new dishes, something I've been wanted to do since we moved over a year ago.  I chose these plates and these bowls.  The green 'grass' runner came from Micheal's for super cheap and the bunny ear and carrot napkin holders came from the Target dollar spot.  Actual cloth napkins came from World Market.  Here's the menu...

Ham & turkey
Croissants
Cheesy potatoes
Green bean casserole
Fresh fruit
Ham & cheese egg bake

Mimosas
Bloody Marys

Rice crispy eggs
Easter party mix

And a little playlist I put together for the morning...


 Our Easter reads.  The Littlest Bunny is Iowa is definitely the favorite!

SeaLife | Kansas City

We spent a couple of hours after my conference Saturday at SeaLife.  This turned out to be the best surprise of the trip.  We almost skipped it {going to only Legoland} but didn't know what else we would so with a chunk of time before we could get into Legoland and thought 'why not?'  As it turns out, the kids {as well as Adam and I} loved it!  If it weren't so crowded, we probably would have stayed longer. 



























*Adam did spot a toothless barracuda which made us sad, but we didn't ask/don't know the whole story.  I know they they also rescue sea life/release sea life into the sea, so maybe it isn't as bad as we felt.
