On the HuntWith a little help from dad, Ethan was able to find some eggs at the church Easter Egg Hunt.

As you can see, Ethan is not very fond of a certain six foot tall rabbit. He actually at one point outed the rabbit when he pushed his head up to reveal...well, you know. I am looking forward to helping Ethan color Easter eggs (all those broken eggs). I can only say that Ethan already thinks he should throw anything that resembles a ball so I can just about guess what he will do with the eggs. At least, they will be hard boiled instead of raw.
I just want to add that this Easter holiday is a great time to think about what Jesus has done for each and every one of us. I think these verses sum it up beautifully:
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. . . In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear" 1 John 4:7-9,17-18

This past weekend, we stayed very busy. Our yard sale Saturday went well and we made a good bit of money. Sunday, John, Ethan and I went to Turtle Park trying to beat the heat and the crowd. We beat the crowd but not the heat. The slides were just too hot. We walked the Riverwalk trail instead and headed to Dairy Queen for an ice cream afterwards. Ethan didn't make it there awake, so we just went home. After his nap, we got out his pool that he got for his birthday. After what seemed like forever blowing it up and coating the child in sunscreen, we finally were ready to go outside. Let me just say this, "Well water is COLD!" It was plenty hot outside to swim but that water reminded me of Radium Springs. Ethan got in but only to stand and play with the water toys. Every time he wobbled and landed on his butt, he made an "ooh, that's cold" face and was quickly back on his feet. He loved it though. Somehow, he convinced Cooper (weimaraner) to come to the pool only to splash him and send him running across the yard...but he kept coming back every time Ethan called him.
