Easter Bunny & Egg Decorating!

Last weekend we took Andrew to see Red Robin (aka The Easter Bunny!)  He still calls him Red Robin.  I think he got confused the night we took him to Red Robin and they had a toy there that he wanted the Easter Bunny to bring him!  Ha!
Waiting patiently to visit "Red Robin."
They had little bunny feet for him to stand on and wait.  He stepped right on them.  Too funny!  We noticed he is growing up so much these days because he has learned to wait in line pretty well.  This used to be very challenging for him!
I think he was fascinated with the bow!  Ha!
He told the Easter Bunny a couple of things that he'd like for Easter.  I think he thought it was kind of strange that the EB didn't talk back to him!  I think he wanted the reassurance.  Ha!
So when he didn't talk, the EB teased him a little bit instead.  I think the EB got a kick out of Andrew!  He is quite the little ham!
The best part of visiting the EB is getting to ride the train for a dollar!  Andrew just loves this.  We always get him 2 tickets so he can ride again.  Because he always asks!
I'll never forget a couple of years ago when he screamed the entire train ride.  Now he can't get enough of it.  He is growing up so fast!
He sat right in front so he could ring the bell (the whole entire time!)
His second ride he chose the green car!
After the train we gave him some coins to throw in the fountain.  This is probably his most favorite thing to do at the mall (or anywhere there is a fountain!)

This weekend we also got some visitors- Uncle Jay came over to help daddy put up a chair rail in baby sister's room, so the kids came over to play with Andrew and we had a blast!
We grilled out for the first time this season and it was so good!  Andrew just loves being with his cousins.  He hadn't seen Evie and Jayden since they came to visit him in the hospital.
While Uncle Jay and daddy worked hard, we dyed Easter eggs with the kids!
Andrew was so excited to do this, and he really got the hang of it!
He even learned how to use the scooper thing so he didn't make a mess!  Ha!  (He is my kid after all!)
Auntie Rachel still had the great idea of changing into old clothes for the project!  I had to go to the basement and dig out some of Andrew's clothes that don't fit him anymore!  Ha!
He was looking at the designs we colored on the eggs before we dyed them.  He wanted me to make a dinosaur!  Believe me, it isn't easy drawing anything on an egg with white crayon...but a dinosaur is next to impossible! 

Our collection of eggs.  Aren't they pretty!
I had to take a picture of the guys, so here's a little sneak peek of baby's room!  There you go!  Ha.  Craig worked so hard painting and these two worked all night on the chair rail and it just looks perfect.  I am so excited and am so grateful to my brother in law for his help!  Thanks Jason!
The evening was getting longer since the guys were still working and the kids were so wild!  So I had them pick out a movie, I dimmed the lights and made popcorn and we never heard another peep out of them!
Do you like Andrew's forest green sweatpants that are about 3 sizes too small!?  Ha!  Perfect for egg decorating!
I think it was close to 10:30 when the guys finally came down and enjoyed some scotcheroos.  Everyone was tuckered out, as you can tell!  Andrew even fell asleep on daddy like this.  It was such a fun evening, and the baby's room is done!  (Well, the painting/chair rail part anyway).  Last night Craig put the crib together and we got the dresser painted and new knobs put on it.  It is super cute!  We just redid an old dresser my mom had in her basement and I just love it.  I can't wait to take pictures of the final product but we are still waiting on bedding and some more final touches!

We hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!
