Easter 2009 was a little different than past years. This was the first year neither one of my kids believed in the Easter Bunny. The kids still went to bed early and we still "played" Easter Bunny, but the excitement of waking up super early wasn't there this year. Although I missed the "magic" of the season and feel fortunate they both believed for so long, it was nice to not have to be so careful in every step we made preparing for this day.

This was our first year of eating out on Easter. We enjoyed it.

We drove to Red Oak Nature Center. Izzy snuggled with Alexander on the ride over.
We started taking this annual Easter walk about 4-5 years ago.

The whole family. We had a great day of enjoying the warm weather, conversation and quiet time together.
I hope you enjoyed your day too!
