For these pictures, Ben is in a blue sweater vest and Jack in white with an argyle pattern. They all looked so incredibly cute in their Easter outfits-- I am excited that they get to wear them again today at another family gathering!
So many adorable moments- like when Mairead was spoon-feeding Ben some of the sherbet punch and he was loving every minute of it.
Or when Mairead took it upon herself to set the table with the appetizer plates.
Ben was jealous of Mairead's hat so he tried it on for size.
He wore it for a while! At one point, things got too hectic downstairs so he took his lawnmower and headed for someplace more quiet.
Katie had Lily on her lap and Mairead hopped over to sit on Lily's lap! The girls are really sweet together- there were numerous hugs throughout the day.
Lily and Jack shared little cousin kisses, too!
The Easter Bunny brought this pretty awesome bubble machine that generates millions (according to Mairead) of bubbles. The kids LOVED it. I highly recommend this- they love it and parents don't have to blow bubbles! It does go through a lot of bubble stuff quickly, so have extra on hand.
The aunts and uncles set up an egg hunt for the kids and they went nuts for it! Some eggs had prizes and others had goldfish. The kids were literally trying to break down the door to get into the room before the eggs were hidden.
Fake Easter is tiring!
And, of course, we had to fit in some time to play basketball since Jack is obsessed. I can't tell you how much time he spends shooting 'big baskets' every day. Ben loves it, too, but nowhere near as much as Jack. They are both getting pretty good-- Jack's shooting is pretty amazing!
