Easter at the Ranch

We celebrated Easter this year by spending the weekend at the ranch with members of Ma-mas' side of the family.  Ma-mas, Pa-Pa, and Uncle Clint were there, along with Aunt Ida and Uncle Barney and Aunt Lisa and Uncle John.  We all had a blast enjoying the outdoors, the weather, and all the great food.   Cooper and Penny had the most fun of course, as was evident when they took long naps on Saturday afternoon.  Ellie slept through a lot of her first Easter, but there were lots of extra hands to hold her when she was awake.  
All the girls go for a walk on Saturday morning.
Ellie plays in the pack-n-play on the porch.
Saturday night prep for Easter...dying eggs! Penny only wanted to make pink ones of course.  Cooper liked to make yellow ones, though he liked Pa-Pa's "john deere" egg of yellow and green.
Penny hunts eggs in her pjs, "lucky" hat, and of course those pink boots.
Penny and Pa-Pa discuss egg hunting.  This shot reminded me of a picture I took of these two on Penny's first Easter.
Cascarones (Confetti eggs)!!  Daddy demonstrated to the kids how to break the cascarones by smashing one on his head.  The kids then started smashing them on their own heads, instead of others' heads.  Funny how literal kids can be!
Elvis the dog photobombed the kids' Easter basket picture!
Yay for Ellie's first Easter!
Its as if this kid was born to be at the ranch.  His little self just shines when we are here.
