Easter Eggstravaganza!

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous day for Easter this year. To start this post, I feel compelled to say/write out loud that I am so blessed to be surrounded by my beautiful family and fabulous friends, and know that as wonderful as this life can be, it is nothing compared to the glory that awaits us in heaven, thanks to Jesus who beat death and gave us Easter so we could take special time out to remember his love for us.
Moving on, our Lawrence crew is turning Easter into an annual let's-get-together-and-eat-alot fun fest! We went over to the Clothiers for a fabulous meal with lots of Griffith, Coles, and Clothier food contributions. I attempted a "Skinny Girl" White Sangria recipe, which, while pretty, unfortunately, did not have time to marinate long enough to get out the true sangria flavor before we partook of it. But, it was really pretty! (Pic below). And yes, I did bring alcohol to Easter. And you would too if your son had yet to take a nap before commencing the hoopla! ;) Also, just a sidenote, 5 hours later, the stuff turned out to be pretty darn tasty! (See Pinterest for the recipe).
Oliver had a ball per ususal hanging out with Noah and Charlie, and  the boys were pros at hunting eggs this year. His Easter outfit was courtesy of Aunt Jennifer, who bought it for him last year and maybe doesn't know so much about toddler sizes, but it couldn't have been better timing to break it out and see if it fit for this Easter! :)
And, speaking of a ball, Oliver is pretty obsessed with any type of sports ball these days. Bouncing basketballs, kicking soccer balls, throwing tennis balls and watching baseball! Yes, baseball! Matt took him to a KU baseball game this week b/c our friend Cory is the new Jayhawks baseball announcer. And, Oliver was enthralled! He cheered and clapped the whole time and was especially entertained by watching the pitcher and catcher warming up between innings (is that when they do it?). Anyways, I sadly did not get to go to the game due to Zumba, but sounds like we will be going to LOTS of KU baseball games this year and in the future. Sigh. Baseball? Really? Oh well, the sacrifices we make for our children. :)
