Friday night, Jimmie, Rachel, and the girls came down, and we had a crawfish boil. Papa supposedly fixed them some "unspicy" crawfish and corn, but you sure couldn't tell he'd gone "light" on the spice, and we had to rinse their food several times before they could eat it. I'm not sure either of my boys ate the Cajun food, but the girls did!
Granny & Papa's church had a big Easter celebration on Saturday, and the kids had a great time on the bounce equipment and the egg hunt. The adults had fun too, as several of the adult children of family friends brought their kids down, so we had a kind of impromptu reunion.
The kids were worn out from the festivities; Soren crashed and slept for almost 3 full hours, so he was being quite the little show off when he woke up feeling fine and rested! I had to threaten Will to email the Easter Bunny if he didn't stop talking and be still when I was trying to get him to sleep. It worked, mostly. We also discovered that Taulbee apparently considers my kids her "wards." Soren was trying to pet Krebs, who lunged at him, and Taulbee went after Krebs. She was definitely taking up for Soren!
For Easter, Will got a Darth Mal figurine (Bil thought that maybe that was a bit sacriligeous, but Will loved it!) and Soren got some sidewalk chalk, which he promptly ate. He also ate through the wrapper of a Cadbury egg. Oops!
Before church, we attempted some nice family pics, but Will was not feeling cooperative. Too bad!
We had a nice lunch with the family, and then headed back home. A very fine Easter.
