Easter and other things

I feel like I need to jump on the bandwagon and post some pics of my kids at Easter. I must admit, they were pretty cute if I do say so myself. We had a really fun Easter this year because Miss E was finally old enough to enjoy all the festivities. Holidays always remind me of the distance between us and family, but we were so thankful to spend the holiday with good friends.

We dyed eggs, which I must admit, I probably would have skipped if it wasn't for my friends wanting to do it. But it was really fun with relatively little mess. Definitely worth it.

Then the guys hid the eggs while the girls waiting oh so patiently.
Then the hunt was on. Elliott stayed *somewhat* focused. Let's just say, she definitely wouldn't win a contest, that's for sure. However, I think she really enjoyed the whole experience.
Checking their loot.
The little man. I love how he looks surprised in this pic. He gives us this face often.
The fam.

Totally unrelated, but Kev and I decided to do this food elimination called The Whole30. You eliminate all processed foods, all dairy, sweets, etc for 30 days. So you basically just eat lots of veggies, fruit, meats, and eggs. I'm interested to see how I feel after 30 days. I've had a lot of "digestion" issues since my pregnancy and they have continued while I breast feed. I also have a serious sweet tooth, and I figured what better way to deal with it than starve it. :) I read about it here. I guess we'll see! So today is DAY 1. My thoughts so with milk and sugar is WAY better than black coffee, I've gotten a little more hungry in between meals, my energy has been okay and no headaches. One day at a time.

  1. David and I are totally going to try this 30 day thing as well. We are in the habit of having lots of desserts! =) Thanks for the recommendation.
