Saturday Easter Egg Hunt and Afternoon Train Ride

We had a pretty busy weekend filled with lots of different Easter activities all of which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. Saturday morning the kids had the Ward Easter Egg Hunt at church. They had fun finding lots of "treat" filled eggs and then enjoyed playing games. This was Joe's first year really getting into things at the ward activity. He loved the games--sack race, egg on a spoon race, jump rope relay and a few others.

That afternoon Jamie and I took Joe to Winnsboro to the South Carolina Railroad Museum to ride the Easter Train complete with the "Easter Bunny". Jamie has been taking Joe to this place for a couple of years now to ride the train from time to time, but this was my first time going with them. Hanna (who informed me she was "too old for this":- )), along with Jack stayed at my mom's, (thank you mom!) so Jamie and I got to take Joe by himself. It was nice to give him some one-on-one time with both of us. He gets one-on-one time with us individually but rarely does he get both of us all to himself for any length of time. It was fun. He snuggled up on my lap for the whole train ride and we both enjoyed every minute of it:-)! The Easter Bunny made an appearance and we got a cute picture. We enjoyed looking at a few antique trains they have on display there, but most of all it was just fun being with Joe and knowing he had a good time.

  1. I love that last picture of Joe on the train. He is grinning from ear to ear.
