Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Week

It may be officially Spring, but it sure doesn't feel like it around here.
Temps dropped into the 20's overnight this weekend and we celebrated a high of 50 both Saturday and Sunday.
Even so, we tried to make the most of it as we enter Easter week.

This year, we did the hunt at Historic Rosedale again.
It's small, simple, and short.
Not to mention the grounds make for decent photos.
 I'm all into having my friend here in town make Shelby monogrammed shirts for the different holiday occasions.
This shirt wasn't meant for a turtleneck, but we made do.
 There's no way she would have sat with the Easter bunny alone.
This is as good as it gets!!
 Then, the hunt begins!
 She was a lot more into it this year, even though the older kids snatched up most of them.
She still walked away with about 10, and they were empty.

Daddy was helping Shelby count up her loot!!
 Instead of stuffing eggs this year, the plantation home decided to give each kid a goodie bag with candy and other treats.
Works for me!
 They also had a lady there making bunny crowns for all the kids.
This would be such a fun thing to have at a birthday party!
 Adorable or what??
 Fun times!
Just like last year, we went up to Brad's parents house after the hunt where Shelby got all her fun Easter goodies from Grammy and we were able to spend the rest of the weekend with them.
 We spent the afternoon at Morgan Ridge Vineyards near my in-laws house where they were having a big birthday celebration for one of the owners.
They had live music, the entire placed decked out and it was packed!
 Shelby danced he heart out to the band, we entertained her with a little Play Doh fun, and more.
 It was such a great afternoon!
 Today we got up early and headed home because I wasn't feeling great.
Allergy + sinuses = No good for me.
I went to the Urgent Care and got some med, then took Shelby out for some afternoon fun.
 And, a 'touch a truck' event.
It was nearly over by the time we go there, but something to do nonetheless.
 Brad went out on the boat with a friend so it was just the two of us.
 Now, I'm ready for bed.
Big week for me, as I travel to Dallas until Thursday evening. 
Then, it's onward to my parents.
So, that likely means, this might be my only post this week.

I love your family photos from this!! I love Easter. I am hoping it will warm up for the weekend. I was also disappointed in the chilly weather we had.

Shelby always has the cutest outfits. I need to get a local friend who can monogram. ;) I love that you do so many different activities as a family.
