The Easter Bunny was good to us!
Dan's favorite place the "hide" the candy.
It's fun to get the toys involved too. :)
The Easter Bunny came during Saturday Afternoon naps.
Digging in and reading their new Easter books.
Saturday evening, we had a lovely (and large) Easter dinner with my family. McKenna was being really cooperative. :)
I have to blog about this only because it's memorable, but it's also an embarrassing parenting FAIL. We let Ben eat probably 5-6 FULL pieces of candy around 5pm. He still ate a decent dinner, we did bath and bedtime at a normal time, and then Benny cried in his crib for 45+ minutes. He had been teething the last few weeks so we thought he was in pain. We gave in some Tylenol AND Ibuprofen and tried rocking him several times. I was considering calling the pediatrician, but he had no other symptoms than a slight runny nose. Finally, my mom suggested we bring him out to play for a little while to see if that would calm him down and it WORKED (thanks mom)! He was perfectly happy to play with 5 adults for about 45 minutes or so and then went to bed without a single tear. The more we thought about it, the more we realized he was probably just WIRED from all that sugar we had let him eat. Nice work mom and dad. Lesson learned.
