Desmond is a huge fan of car keys these days, so really it wasn’t a big surprise that the Easter Bunny and his Nana each gave him a set of his own for Easter. He spent the morning walking around the house, pointing them out the window towards the car, obviously quite pleased with his Easter keys. He kept repeating “car keys, car keys,” which also might have been “khakis, khakis,” in reference to his crisp new holiday pants.
Even when it’s as cold as it was today, and it was pretty darn cold, Easter always feels like a definite sign of warmer and longer days ahead. Easter pictures usually deliver the gentle nudge (uhm, yea…) I need to realize that I should probably get my hair colored for spring, but I digress…
The wind was whipping but the sun was shining today and Des had a blast searching for colorful plastic eggs at his Auntie Tina’s, competing with about ten or so of his cousins (not pictured because we were too busy hunting). The boy found about five with our help, but was more excited about the pucks and hockey sticks that his cousins had in their yard. The poor kid has been so cooped up all winter, he’s overjoyed every time he’s able to play outside. Aren’t we all.
It really was an eggtra special day. Okay, if I were you, I’d literally never read again. That was so, so bad… But the boy below, he’s pretty darn cute. So there’s that.
