I bet you thought I died haha. If you can recall I was feeling really crappy last week. I mentioned it Monday and Tuesday. Wellllllll, It wasn’t getting better so I took Wednesday and Thursday off. I wanted to be well enough to enjoy the holiday with my family. I’m still hacking and sniffling here at work today but I’ll be ok. My wife is now sick and Everett is still yucky as well. We did make it though and we did have a great time, so I’ll jump right in!
Saturday was our busiest day, by far. My wife had a sunrise photo shoot at 7am. I was home getting Everett ready for his first swim class! 😀 😀 When my wife got home we were pretty much ready to go. Here is my boy in the YMCA parking lot.
We took him into the family changing area where we met my mom, brother and his little girl. Everett was checking everything out so he wasn’t very animated haha. But look at that little swim suit! 😀 😀
He was a little hesitant at first, but warmed up quite nicely. It was only 30 minutes but that seems like an eternity once you are in there. The girl standing next to us is the instructor (not just a random creeper haha)
Part of the way though they put these floating letters and noodles in the pool for the kids to hang on to. Everett was getting used to laying on his back in this one. He did get there!
Once we were done at the pool we had to hurry home and take showers. We were right back out the door to go to my cousin Austin’s baby shower. Here is my cousin, my aunt, and his new baby boy Koen! He is a cutie with big cheeks. (Fun fact: He is almost 3 months old and weighs as much as Everett haha)
Again, after the baby shower we hit the road and went to My wife’s families house for Easter. When we got there he had these ears put on him haha.
Everett’s grandpa and his family came over for dinner, which was a nice treat.
The rest of the night was spent playing with the three little kids that were there. We hit the hay early because we were drained and still were getting over some sickness. Sadly my wife woke up Sunday feeling worse.
Everett was enjoying some pancakes and yogurt bite in the morning.
Again we got ready and headed out. We were going to Erie to my aunt and uncle’s house for our other traditional Easter lunch. There were 8 children there under the age of 8! that hasn’t happened since all of my cousins and I were little. It was awesome having that many people there and seeing the next generation of little ones. The best part is they all seem to get alone and play like crazy.
After we ate I helped hide Easter eggs in the yard and my wife got Everett ready to go. He wasn’t feeling it haha.
Here we go!
This is His first ever egg hunt so it was pretty fun.
Once all the kids came back in the house and got their candy sorted we tried to get them all on the couch for a picture. This was chaotic, but fun! This is about as good as any picture got haha. The second one on the left is my niece Rory and she was not having it haha. It was still pretty funny.
Everett was looking out the window with one of his cousins here and it was just too cute to pass up.
Lastly for Sunday, before the long drive home was another shot of my newest baby cousins Koen, again. He was dressed in his little bunny outfit. 😀 😀
We woke this morning feeling groggy and out of it. I made it to work, still not feeling the greatest, but I have to power through. It can only get better from here right? haha.
I have missed you all, and hope you had a great holiday weekend! I’ll be back tomorrow, and hope to see you then! 😀 😀
