Easter 2013

Just like last year, we took Wesley to church for the big Easter egg hunt and petting zoo the day before Easter. Unlike last year, he actually knew what was going on! We were worried about whether the rain would hold off - storms were predicted for the whole day. Thankfully we got a huge storm in the middle of the night and the weather on Saturday morning was great. It was humid but not too cold or hot and not at all rainy. I even commented on our way to the church that the weather was perfect for pictures - slightly overcast!

When we arrived we went straight over to the petting zoo. Children were everywhere and it was a little chaotic, but because Wesley loves other children, he had a great time even if he couldn't pet the animals. After saying hello to the animals, we decided it was time to say hello to our friends.

Wesley was more interested in acorns than the animals...

One of Wesley's favorite church friends was dressed as the Easter bunny. I don't know if that's why he went to him without protest or if Wesley is just that easy-going. He looks skeptical, but he was very comfortable with the bunny.

Jarrod visited with friends and then I decided it was time to face the petting zoo again. We spent some time outside the fence before braving the inside.

Wesley wasn't all that impressed with the animals. I don't think he really knew what to do with them. He was much more interested in the children playing with the animals than the animals themselves.

After the petting zoo, we went into the chapel for an Easter story. We have a wonderful woman at our church who told a story with props that kept even Wesley engaged for 15 minutes!
Following the story, children were dismissed by age to collect eggs! Wesley was in the 0-2 years group and the eggs were placed all over a grassy yard. Wesley went to town!




Wesley literally hand-picked each one of these eggs. That says two things - one: the eggs were very close together and two: Wesley loved finding eggs! He had such a good time.

On Easter Sunday we went to church. Wesley was dressed in his Sunday best!
After church I had a little impromptu photo shoot with Wesley. 



This last one is my favorite. He's so smooth!

What did you all do for Easter?
