Easter and the Zoo! Whatta Life!

Jake's sister came into town last week and while she was here we went to the zoo. It was Mikey's first time there and it was so much fun. Here is the story of our day in pictures!
Mikey went on the carousel with Aunty Liz. It doesn't look like he loved it but he really did.
Lina, Gideon, Mikey, me and Jake looking at the birds and such. About 5 minutes after I got pooped on- by a bird, not a son
Me and Mikey on the tiger statue. We almost missed the tiger which woulda be sad because Mikey thought he was seriously cool... or she... ya know I didn't read the sign.
Mikey trying to find the "tick-tock croc" (he loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates)
Adam with Aunty Abby. Adam was such a champ. He slept most of the time and barely cried at all.
Isn't Adam so cute? I love my little baby so much.
Now on to Easter!
First off all, I bought all the boys new outfits- even Jake. I wanted to get something for me but I couldn't find one so instead I just used what I already had and coordinated with my men.

Me with my kiddos. Red and brown was the theme. Not the typical Easter color scheme but I got the clothes on clearance. That's way better than pastels I think.
My matching boys! Red ties and brown pants. The little boys had vests but I couldn't find one for Jake. Adorable right?
 I also went a little over the top when it came to Easter baskets but I love to do stuff like that for my family. I didn't do a terribly special breakfast- just eggs in a hole and some fruit and sausage.

I hid Jake's basket under the bassinet in the pack-n-play. I thought I was so clever but Jake found it in about a minute. He got the Hobbit and the board game Axis and Allies along with his candy
So instead of hiding Mikey's basket, I had a trail of candy from his bed to the his basket in the living room and I left his door open so when he woke up he could just follow the trail. He woke up and squealed, he was so excited to see his candy. It was so fun for me. I made Jake get up and sleep on the couch so I could wake him up easily so he could see Mikey. Mikey came running out of his room, ignoring the candy trail to the couch and was like mama! showing me his hands full of candy. It was great.
Mikey's "basket" -it's really a tin pail with his name painted on it- and his bowling set
Adam's basket was a little trickier because he doesn't do candy. So he got plastic eggs with rice inside for a rattle, a monkey rattle, a seriously soft bunny and a few little wrist rattles- he really likes rattles

We went to church after the great basket unveil.. I got one too I just don't have pictures. I got candy and Fast Five. I love that movie. Church was great and the boys were so well behaved. Afterwards we had some friends over and we ate turkey and all the fixins. After dinner we played Munchkin and Harry Potter Scene it! I love that game.. not Munchkin, HP of course!

Hope all of your Easters were fantastic as well.
