Happy Easter!

We had wonderful weather this weekend. Perfect for the easter weekend. We started with Luke having a half day on Friday(it was good friday). We took Emmett to see the Easter Bunny at the bank branch at Walmart and then out to lunch at our fav La Comida. We had breakfast with our friends next door on Saturday. It was a lot of fun to have them over. Emmett showed off all of his new toys to the boys, Kelly and Donald, and he got some new PJ's for this summer. Thanks Shelton's! Later that eve, we had a nice turkey dinner with our friend Mike. His wife Tammy and their son Caleb are in Florida for a visit with their families. Luke and Mike had a few beers and played X-box for quite some time. I mean into the wee hours of the morn! This morning was Easter morning. Emmett woke up and the Easter bunny had stopped by. He left a new book and some other fun toys. Grandma Debbie had also gotten him an easter basket to open this morning. He loved it! Cars and stuffed toys and even a small lunch box! He had a blast. The local "egg" hunt is at the golf course. So we went this afternoon and participated. The sun was shining and it was a little breezy, but there were tons of kids and will be so much fun once Emmett gets the concept. The Cody Lions Club basically drives around in golf cart with huge boxes of candy and empties them on the 1st fairway. They then blow the lightning siren and the kids go "hunting". Emmett had a piece of candy in both hands and was very content watching the other children fill entire grocery bags with candy. I did happen to snag a few Reese Peanut Butter Cups......for Daddy of course. We loaded up the easter loot and one very tired little boy. He napped and we got ready for Easter dinner with the neighbors, the Shelton's. We had a wonderful dinner of ham, yams, beans, salad and cornbread muffins. We never made it to the pecan pie! Full, tired and ready to put the kiddo to sleep, we are now at home relaxing. I wanted to make sure to post this evening, cause Emmett and I are headed to Billings in the morning for his pictures at Sears.
