Egg-celent Easter ~ Part I

We traveled by plane to Big Spring, TX (close to Odessa and Midland) for Easter.  It was the PERFECT weekend vacation.  We got to spend time with some of our favorite people.   

Austin has already been on a plane so I was worried about how Jack would do.  Since he doesn't sit in my lap EVER, I was really nervous even though the flight was only 1 hour and 15 minutes.  He did great!  

We went from this....

...to this in about 20 minutes into the flight.  Jack slept through the landing and Austin was asleep resting his head on my arm. 

When we got to Big Spring, we were so excited to see my grandmother and her beau Larry, whose home is centered around kids.  The backyard is filled with tons of things for kids to do.  Needless to say, Austin was in heaven.  It didn't take long for him to settle in.

I was surrounded by family that I completely adore including my mom, grandmother, my sister Lendi, my aunt, cousins and their kiddos.

My cousin's kids are amazing as you can see.

Jack was also loving life being outside the entire weekend.

Granny and the water gun showdown. 

This is my precious Grandmother and my precious baby.

At the end of our first day, the kids prepared for Easter by painting their Easter buckets and coloring eggs. 

On Saturday, we were back outside for a full day of play.  These are just some of the pics from Larry's backyard.  It is awesome to sit out on the back porch and watch these beautiful animals.

My sister Lendi, her Beau Dusty and my nephew Jake arrived on Saturday.

Homemade snow cones!

I love this picture because of Killian's face.  Perfect.

Even more perfect.

I will post Part II with the egg hunt and the rest of our trip soon.
