Easter Recap

Easter summary.  I'll keep my copy brief and to the point.  I know how brutal holiday summaries can be.

First, please behold perhaps the only image ever in the history of history that all 3 Starnes children are looking at the camera and smiling.  It's at the printer now, slated for a 16"x20" canvas, dipped in gold and then hung above the fireplace.  Year round.


Egg dying with the McNamaras.  Slated to move away in just weeks.  I'm heartbroken.  More on that later.

These girlies are crazy as ever.


Jack got fancy for the festivities.

What?  Most 5 year olds don't dye eggs in a suit?

We relaxed on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful weather.



Love this girl.

We woke to hunt eggs.  The usual routine.

Blake shuddered at the thought of me posting this picture.

Lainey's wearing size 12 Month pj pants. 

Now, they look like shorts.

Later that afternoon, we hit the beach.

Lainey never sacrifices function for fashion.

Heals for the beach!


 

Jack has started balancing rocks.

Woo hoo! 

No more savings for college.  This kid has skillz.



We walked the pier to dinner.


Love the view.

Off to wrangle kids.  Beautiful day in Southern California.

Kids are scattered all over the place with Ballet/Tap, Scrabble Club and whatever Jack comes up with for the rest of the day.

Laters, baby!

So sad for you that your besties are moving away. I bet Lainey is heartbroken too. :(

Great Easter bunny picture.....except the bunny is a little creepy(seems like they always are). Love the picture of Lainey jumping in the air....girl has skills.

I'm with Merrilee - the Easter picture is great of the kids but you need to photoshop the weird looking rabbit out.

I LOVE that Jack wore a suit to dye eggs. He might just be one of the coolest little dudes I know. And by "I know" of course I mean have read about online and wish to meet someday. You know.
Also... don't hate. I have to be honest. The pic of your kids is wonderful as they are all smiling... I know this is rare... however. That bunny scares the absolute shit out of me. Flat out creepy bunny. Why do Easter bunnies always look so whack?
