Grandma = Easter Egg Hunt

It's funny what kids remember (and, actually, the developing memory of my tot is beginning to scare me a little... as in, what I do and say is beginning to enter that tape-recorder... IT ALL MATTERS from here on out!!!!). Last year, when Grandma Decker came to provide much-needed help after Sullivan was born, she provided a little Easter Egg Hunt for J. He was 1 3/4 years old. And he had fun with it and all... but I about dropped over when, in explaining to him the other day that Grandma was going to be visiting soon, he said, "We find eggs together?"

OK, I confess, we have watched a few family videos that may have jogged the memory. But still, it shocked me that he made the association.

Anyway, Grandma was here from Palm Sunday until yesterday. We conducted thr annual Easter Egg Hunt, among many other things. Thanks, Gma! We had a ton of fun with you!
We took Lynette to our favorite spot: Oxbow Park!
It was both windy AND sunny (gorgeous!), hence Sullivan's unwillingness to look into the camera.

Jackson loves uprooting grass, walking up the fence, and chickening out at the last minute when the deer comes towards him with his slobbery tongue. Jackson lets the grass fall to the ground and jumps back, only to repeat the same steps (over and over!).

One might think, in all the pictures I've posted over the past year, that Sullivan is a serious guy. Most of the shots fail to capture an all-out smile. The truth is, he smiles a ton. He just doesn't smile for the camera. That's sort of his personality in general : I'll perform only when I want to (I'll eat only when I want to... I'll play only with the toys I want to... in other words, I could take or leave what YOU want me to do! It's sweet-natured defiance, really)

Off centered self-portrait, but I captured the main star!

Such a sweet moment: Gma and Jackson were learning about birds and their wing spans. You'll see Jackson's navy blue arms poking out, parallel to Gma's. So darling!

I've never known a more ticklish neck than Sullivan's (gets it from me!)

This toy is THE BEST 1-year-old toy... buy it for all of your friends with babies. It's worth ALL 4 D batteries needed to power it up.

Here're the egg pics!

Sullivan helped Gma load them up!
