every year the easter rabbit brings my kids easter goodies in sand buckets for some reason... i think its because he knows that i don't like storing easter baskets and sand buckets are just so darn useful. cody was pretty stoked with his loot and lola really loves her goat toy. she still hasn't outgrown her goat noises shes been making since birth...
right after cody opened his basket, he checked to see if there were any eggs in the yard. there weren't. oops. however, i was pretty certain that there were going to be eggs in grandmas back yard later that afternoon.
and for the record:
in the middle of all the easter festivities, our little neighbor girl had a birthday party. her mom is way cooler than cody's mom. she had pony rides at her party. right here on our street.
