Egg Hunt and Easter

We took the boys to a local egg hunt last weekend and they had a fine time.

The twins were a little slow in the gathering, but they liked it. 

I used to be very anti-child leash.  Then I had twins. 

Pierce had a good run! 

My attempt for a pic of all 3: 

And here's our family Easter pic: 
We do this every year, but typically in front of the house.  Since we currently haven't mowed the lawn and there's a car (needing repair) in front of our house, we changed location.  I guess you might be a redneck if you have to change your Easter picture location due to a broken down car and unmowed yard...

They look so happy gathering eggs. The family portrait looks great!

Great easter pics! And.. who cares if you're a redneck as long as you're a happy redneck :-)

Farmchick said...

You just have to roll with it in life. Broken down car, unmowed lawn and all! Great family pic!

Nancy said...

Haha! Love the redneck remark. I resemble it, but I still love it!

Looks like the boys had a great egg-pickin' time. :)

LOL! All you're missing are a few hound dogs!

We were sick the whole week before Easter so we missed out on all the egg hunts. :( Ha ha! Growing up we had about 5 vehicles needing repair in the yard. We lived in the country. I'm quite familiar with rednecks!

I cracked up over the car and lawn..we're leading parallel lives!

Dawn said...

Sweet.
I love the full basket and the smiles:)
Wonderful family photo- regardless of location;)

Valerie said...

I love your family portrait! You guys live in the most beautiful location-even with the occasional broken down car and unmowed lawn:)

And those baby leashes are so much cuter than they used to be-Amy had one that looked like a dog leash:( I always felt like I should be saying "Heel Amy! Good girl!"

The next you know, you'll have a swimming pool inthe front yard like the rest of the rednecks!...:)JP

Your family is lovely. I have a broken down van in my backyard. I use it for storage.

One of my friends has that exact same monkey backpack/leash :-) You guys are a great looking family!

Sonya Heilmann said...

Looks like a lot of fun!

I know what you mean about the kid-leashes. I felt the same way . . . until we took Livie (as a 2-year-old) to the Iowa State Fair!

Ginny said...

The second picture is priceless with the basket and the paci!!! I don't think the kids cared where the hunt was, as long as they had fun. And it looks like they really did! Your Easter picture is really nice! As to the redneck thing, I guess you might qualify if you have more than one broken down car, and they are up on blocks, and you have several dogs living under the house. Or if you have either a couch or a fridge on your front porch.

I may be a redneck if... bawwhaaahaa!

Really great family picture!

So which one of the twins is on the leash, is he the naughty one that is always on the leash? I'd TOTALLY do that if I had twins, safety first!!!

Jack said...

Nice family picture. That view is spectacular.

Sarah Knight said...

Looks like a good time! Cute kids! That backpack is a hoot :D

Jeremi said...

What a great Easter picture. Those three look like a handful. Enjoy them small, before you know it they are all grown up.

I think rednecks dont CARE to change the easter photo location - they don't think twice about junk cars in the background or deer hanging on the clothesline for a backdrop! Looks like the kiddies had a blast looking for eggs!

Texan said...

Great pics and lovely view from your back porch. One of the pluses of living out in the country is no pressure to mow the lawn or in our case it would be weeds mixed with a bit of pasture grass LOL.

Nicole said...

Looks like they had a good time.

I'm a redneck too, un-mowed grass and tons of crap in the yard! lol

Sandy said...

It is a miracle...you got all 3 in a picture! Your family photo is great and I think it is a good location.

Christina said...

Such cute pics!!
