Olin's First Easter

Olin's First Easter

wp-1459196330551.jpg

I hope everyone had a relaxing Easter weekend! Olin got to meet some family, and we even managed a nice family photo - our first as a dressed up family of four!imageWe had a lovely dinner with our Vancouver family. We usually make a trip down to the Oregon Coast to see some of my family, but since Olin's birth was a little too close to Easter this year, we decided to just stay home.imageBreccan and I decorated eggs for the first time. He had a great time, and the Paas Tie Dye kit was really great for minimizing mess (and practicing fine motor skills!). My only critique is that the dye stains way too much, and nothing would get it off. We made a few eggs and had a small hunt in our front yard on Easter morning. Breccan was really into it this year. He's at the perfect age for a little holiday magic!
