Easter was pretty low-key this year. I had been out of town during the week leading up to it, and Steve didn't have Good Friday off. I was on kid withdrawal so I took them to the zoo by myself on Good Friday. That's always a gamble - I've done it before though. It's getting easier to take them places by myself as they get older. Luckily, they were good, but apparently everyone else in Houston had the same idea... we got there not long after opening and the parking lots were FULL (there's tons of parking...). Needless to say we didn't stop for any pictures, and left around 12:30 for our train ride that's become a staple of zoo visits. Really glad that we have a membership so I don't feel bad when we ditch early like that.
Tyson had really been looking forward to Easter, he understands how many days away something is now (instead of it having to be tomorrow). Here they were before church:
After we got back - the Easter Bunny had come and brought them pool/ swimming gifts this year! Someone at work gave the Easter Bunny that idea and they liked it a lot!
During the hunt! Tyson was hilarious, he even slide tackled Hailey once to get an egg (we told him he needed to let her get some and slow down, but in the coming years it may turn into full-contact egg hunts if we let them)
The kids after they got all of their loot! Tyson still hasn't opened any of his eggs. He says he wants his Easter basket to stay "heavy." Fine with us! Hailey would eat all of her candy in one sitting if we let her.
