Cousin Time

We spent Easter with Beau's side of the family this year, which meant Ephram would get some quality time with some of his favorite little friends (cousins). I swear, his eyes lighten up the moment he sees them. And, in fact, even as I prepared these photos for the blog, he chirped and babbled while sitting on my lap, watching me sort through them. Which sparked a fun game of "Is that Adeline? Yep, that's Adeline. Is that your cousin, Zach? Yep, that's Zach. Can you say Grant? Shania? Hunter?" etc. Easter 2011

And Easter just isn't Easter without an egg hunt in the woods behind Mema and Papa's house. Luckily, we were able to put Ephram's "Where's the ball?" game to use in the egg hunt, since eggs closely resemble perfectly sized balls for a little boy's hands.

The big kids raced to find the eggs...

And by the end of the hunt, everyone had a few eggs in their basket. So proud, they were.
