Easter Happenings

The county along with the city of Fairfax and Chick-fil-A held an Easter Egg hunt complete with face painting balloons and lots of candy. The kids had a ball, the weather was perfect and they separated it out by age group so the little ones were not trampled by the big kids. Jaden didn't know what to do at first but he sure did get the hang of it.

The Chick-fil-A cows.
Getting ready to pick up the eggs behind him, had his balloon and bag ready.

Loved her smile.

The loved it.
It didn't take long for him to get the hang of it.

The Easter egg painted on her face looks like a big painted spot.

The Easter Bunny won the race against the cows.

She was fast and ready.

Satisfied with her take...
Her shirt says it all.
Getting into the music.
The big kids clearly were the fastest it was like watching a vacuum cleaner.

He wanted to know why he couldn't do it again.
Checking out what they got.

We didn't match this year but they were all dressed for spring and the weather he could not have been more beautiful.

Can you believe he's 21 months old. Its crazy.
I'm wondering where my little girl went, check out the heels on her shoes.

Spring Baskets.
He really liked his basket. All of them were filled with a book, bubbles, a little candy and some eggs filled with a little change.

We took the kids to Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, since we did a broad brush stroke of presidents in Co-Op. They really enjoyed it and learned a lot. I had no idea that he wrote the Declaration of Independence at the age of 33....so young. Brilliant man, not perfect he still could not live without his slaves, but he had a brilliant mind and clearly a heart for God.

I wish we could have gotten a better picture of the house it's really amazing.

The kids were learning about the time from a rope, interesting analogy, can you see Jaden right next to Jordan, if she is near he has to be by her side...unless of course he's tired.
A clock.
Writing with a quill pen.
It was a fun day.
