Easter Shenanigans in Austin

We had a wonderful Easter weekend in Austin and Waco! I’ll have to split these posts into 2….so, lets start with Austin:

 

Joe took off Good Friday and we headed on down to Grammy & Grampy’s house. Of course we stopped for lunch at our favorite hangout~ Flores (and its PERFECT playground).

The next series of photos crack me up! The kids were having a blast with Auntie Jess’s iphone4~ they loved being able to see themselves while taking a picture. Crazy little mischievous Drew.

…and after the fact (Ben’s face is priceless)

back to hugging (or strangling) in no time! Crazy boys.

One of Savannah’s favorite things to do is take pictures with our phones…ummm….these next bajillion photos are living proof that 50% of her Daddy’s DNA is running through her little veins.

Later that evening, we headed out to downtown Austin (thanks to Grammy for watching the kids!)

The next morning, the kids were super excited for an Easter egg hunt around Grammy’s neighborhood! Ethan & Drew stopping for a picture.

Once again, Sister cleaned up shop…that poor little basket couldn’t even hold all of her eggs!

A pic with Mr. Peter Cottontail in front of Grammy’s house…Sav’s basket cracks me up.

That afternoon we played in the pool!

The Steece quadlings are still sporting their puddle jumpers {sigh}…maybe this summer’s swim lessons will do the trick! I’ll tell ya this~ Mama is going to be able to let out a HUGE sigh of relief, once they can all swim…its always in the back of my mind, ya know?

 

 

A quick intermission to open Grammy and Grampy’s awesome Easter baskets!

…and back to the pool!

Later Saturday evening, the Steece Fam attended the Bob Mayberry Foundation Annual Fundraiser for cancer research, where Kate & Paul are proud sponsers.

And at the end of the night…we had a wee bit o’ fun in the complimentary photo booth (just a little)…

 

 

 

We had a great time! Thank you so much, Paul and Kate, for letting us be a part of such a special event and wonderful organization.

 

 

Love you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coming up~ more egg hunting and Easter Sunday in Waco!

Looks like you all had a great time. What an awesome looking pool too! If you have a local YMCA, check out their swim programs - they do great with kids and the prices are reasonable.

Glad y'all had a great Easter! Savannah's full basket of eggs was funny, I bet she was on a real mission.

Our Easter was spent packing for the hospital since I got admitted on Monday... I'm sure you remember those days! With God's blessing, once we're done here we'll be going home with our own quads!

Great pics!! Love the Easter egg hunt photos - such fun! Can I just say how envious I am that you are swimming outside already?! Send that sunshine & warm up to the great Canadian North please :o)

Just love the way you all spend such quality time with both sets of family. You both seem to have such understanding and helpful in laws. I love it and very cute Easter pics.
