We finally made it to Junction City where Monk Monk waited to greet us.
At this point Ryne had done a great job of sleeping most of the day. Kade, on the other hand, didn't sleep another wink after his 30 minute nap on the plane. And once we got to C.G. and Grandaddy's house he was all wound up and ready to play. I think he finally went to bed at 11:30 that night. I'm not entirely sure because he slept on his "pallet bed" in C.G. and Grandaddy's room.
When we got to Granna and Paw's house, Granna had a bed full of monkeys waiting for the kids. Look close and you'll notice Ryne sitting with the monkeys in the bed. He kind of blends in.
She somehow managed to forget to tell him that he's not supposed to dump the cup of bubble juice into his lap when he's done blowing bubbles.
It was time for the Easter Egg Hunt. Had to bathe off the bubbles and head over to Brian and Kimberly's to get the eggs hidden. Kyle and Brian hid the eggs while the boys waited inside.
You can tell Brandon is already looking as soon as he walked out the door.
Uncle B won the egghunt because he found Kade's prized hiding place.
And for a trip to the chicken yard. I didn't make this journey but Kyle told me that Kade was chasing the chickens and wanted to catch them. They look like pretty big chickens to me so it's probably a good thing that he wasn't quite fast enough.
After a long day of hard work, Brandon and Kade decided that C.G. should read them one of their new Easter books to wind down.
Climbed right up in the middle of them and started checking it all out. Guess that stuffy nose wasn't bothering him too much then.
Ryne was pretty excited about his Easter basket, too. Grabbed right on to it and gave us the biggest grin just like he really understood.
Ryne is all dressed and ready for church and wants to give a little Easter Peace shout-out to the people.
Here's our family Easter pic. Not the best picture ever but it will do for how antsy Kade had become at this point.
Now this is what I like to call a "self-portrait"....one of my favorite ways to take a picture. I taught Brandon how we could take a picture of ourselves. I hear from his mom that he's been practicing this newly learned skill!
Just look at my baby...He was sooo sick by Sunday afternoon that I wanted to just bundle him up and hold him and rock him and kiss all his snot away. His little eyes were so swollen and every time he would sneeze, snot would fly everywhere. His voice sounded so funny when he would try to talk, poor guy. Kyle and I actually ended up taking turns sleeping with him that night so that we could keep him propped up a little so that he could breathe.
Looking and feeling better on Monday morning, Kade was ready to pose with all the rest of the monkeys. They all have a Curious George shirt to go with their Curious George's from Granna. Aren't these the cutest little monkeys ever?
Here are two of our little monkeys watching some t.v. Kade thought he had to be right on top of Brandon all the time. Guess he was afraid Brandon might try to run away without him or something.
Now here are the boys all dressed back up in their Easter duds on Monday night just waiting for Taylor to wake up from her beauty sleep to go take family pictures and celebrate Paw's birthday. Isn't this just a group of charmers?
Taylor and Ryne were both in great moods when we got home...maybe somebody snuck them some peanutbutter chocolate mess???.....so we got a couple of pictures of just the babies.
This is Kade waiting to get into an Italian restaurant in Krebs, Oklahoma. Tiny little town that is known for its Italian food. Seriously, I think there are more italian restaurants there than there are homes. It was a yummy lunch stop, plus it gave Kade an opportunity to color so he was happy.
Another precious friend from college drove over to see us, too. Thanks so much Patti Kaye!!! Loved getting to see you and G. Must get our boys together more often to play.
