Easter with Gammi and Pop!

Another fantastic visit from Gammi and Pop!

As it was Easter, Gammi and Pop spent much of the weekend teaching Kaden our traditions. First, we dyed the Easter Eggs. Kaden had a great time dropping the color tablets into the corresponding color cups. He also liked dropping the eggs in. He didn't like waiting for them to finish dyeing - he couldn't keep his teeny-tiny fingers out! We also showed him our Egg Cracking Competition - Mom was this year's champion!

The Easter Bunny brought a giant basket of goodies for Kaden! While most children enjoy all the candies that come on Easter morning, Kaden was most excited about his new electric toothbrush. His truck puzzle was a close second!

A somewhat unconventional Easter spent at the ballpark. Kevin got tickets for all of us to go watch the Phillies beat up on the Padres! The outfield is pretty much outfitted for kids with bench seating and a giant sandbox. Kaden had a great time but he really wanted to get out on the field and show off his skills!

Another Warwick's book reading - Froggy Goes to Hawaii. Kaden loved Froggy, but didn't want to sit still for the book reading. He finally settled into Gammi's arms and listened intently after that. Snacks always help one to settle in and enjoy the show!

One day, there was some construction work going on across the street. We decided on lunch al fresco so that Kaden could watch all the excitement. The skid steer that was removing all of the construction debris was a favorite..."up, up, up, dump."

At Gammi's encouragement, Kaden raided my hat box. Just in time for Derby!

Not only did Kaden get to visit with Gammi and Pop, he also spent some time with his second cousins, Boris and Lee. The three are all within a few months of one another and played together really well. It was cute to see them chasing after one another and hear their squeals of delight.

Kaden's first bus ride was a highlight of Gammi and Pop's visit! His mouth stayed open the whole time. He wasn't sure what to think!

Kaden and Marley went on a lot of walks - however, neither of them did much of the walking!

A quick family photo.

Overall, it was a great visit. But... is still so hard to say good-bye!
