My family and I went to Detroit Lakes this Easter to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa Earnest. We had a room at the Holiday Inn for two nights and Coretta, Emilia, Jack, and Geno had a great time swimming.
After church, Coretta ran into Grandma's house in search of her Easter basket knocking down anything in her path. When she found it she was very excited. She especially like the shirt, sunglasses, and candy.
The Easter egg hunt went well and all 32 eggs were found. The funniest thing was when Nick put one of the Easter eggs above the door, and when Coretta shut it, it fell on her head! We all had a great laugh!!
Geno spent time digging through his Easter basket and enjoyed pulling all of the things out. His latest thing is cause and effect and can spend hours dropping a ball and watching it fall. He also enjoys standing up and having everyone clap for him. He absolutely loves the spotlight.
As we were sitting in the living room, the doorbell rang, and sure enough, the Easter bunny left a couple gigantic eggs! We later found out they were goose eggs!! The kids loved cracking them and inspecting the hard boiled egg.
Coretta and her cousins spent quality time together playing tag, watching movies, and even had a sleepover at Auntie Bridge's house. Other than Emilia and Jack almost drowning a handful of times in the pool, the weekend was great! Coretta really deserves the title of on-duty lifeguard! They especially enjoyed using the water squirters that Grandma bought them and loved going in the hot tub.
Here are some pictures from the weekend!!
