EASTER IN AZ

Two posts in two days? That's practically unheard of around here.
Continuing with an update from our trip to Arizona...
 
The day before Easter I looked at my boys and thought they looked a bit scruffy.
So we loaded up into the car and went to our favorite haircut place for kids, Cool Cuts for Kids.
I didn't get any pictures of Gabriel (my parents did, though) because I had to sit next to him the whole time and hold his hand and rub his back and tell him everything would be okay. He wasn't really having it. They didn't butcher his hair, left it longer and now I swear the curls look even cuter than before.
Caderyn was a champ as always, he got to play a Lego video game, so he didn't want to leave.
 

Caderyn thought these little mustache magnets were hilarious and kept rearranging them on pictures hanging from the fridge. This one was by far his favorite and he took this picture and made sure I sent it to my cousin. He does look quite dapper, doesn't he?

Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Easter morning.

I made two breakfast casseroles for brunch. This one was a cinnamon roll casserole and then I made one with hashbrowns and sausage and some veggies. Both were deeelicious.
 
 
The Easter bunny left some good treats! Caderyn got: a new Pete the Cat book, a Lego set, goldfish graham crackers, some random candy, and an Easter See's Candy box.
Gibby got: a Curious George book, a plane from the movie Planes, and the same candy goodies that Caderyn got.
Both boys shared the Spiderman bubble blower.

Brunch= Mimosas.
MY FAVORITE.

 
 
I love champagne.

 
Play time! We had just a really nice day just relaxing and playing. No pressure, no deadlines.

Building Legos for a little boys who decided to play with bubbles instead. Story of my life, glad my dad wanted to help.
 
And then, before swimming and dinner, before it got too hot, we quickly hid the Easter eggs the bunny had left in the backyard. It was a "You have to find the eggs in 3 minutes or less before the chocolate melts" kind of egg hunt. Caderyn had a blast, Gibby mostly just followed me around going, "Up Mommy! Up!" 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
And then we spent the rest of the day swimming and lounging and eating.
