Easter weekend 2022.

We had such a fun Easter weekend! Hallelujah, He is risen- the best, most joyous reason to celebrate! The girls had Friday and Monday off of school, so we headed to Des Moines Thursday after school to see the Schut side. Kley was able to switch and rearrange some work things so he could come too, yay! All of my siblings were there too, so it was neat to all be together. We came back Sunday and got to celebrate with the De Jong side too. Love seeing all the cousins! Monday we had a nice day at home. 

Cousin picture with Will and Gerrit! Wearing the hats they found in the Easter scavenger hunt the De Jong side does (instead of an egg hunt they do a scavenger hunt for a few small treats- it's fun to do different things on each side!), and terrible lighting, but it is what it is!

Scavenger hunt.

I love this picture of Great Grandma Shirley with her great grands! Just wish Gerrit was in it too, but so so cute. Love all the smiles!

Kley loves to joke during family picture sessions that he needs individual shots with random people, so he shouted out that him and Grandma needed a picture. I didn't think much of it until afterwards, but I think it's really neat, as she is his last living grandparent. Special to spend time with her!

I didn't realize until looking at this picture as I uploaded it that Lucy's headband says happy birthday- oh well- the banner on the wall says happy Easter!

Love this one with Grandma and Grandpa!

The cutest matching sisters!

Easter meal together. Love a full table!

Right before the Schut egg hunt.

We went to the Easter party at Howell's. So fun! It was a chilly day but not too had. This was Saturday, and Easter Sunday we got some snow!

Slide fun.

I didn't get a picture of it, but basically the highlight of the weekend was taking my one-year-old niece, Averie, a slide newbie down this giant cow slide and she loved it and she willingly kept coming to me and we went down multiple times. What a special aunt bonding moment!

Hello to the Easter bunny!

They have this train ride made out of bathtubs that each have a funny tub saying on them, so fun!

Another egg hunt- we got our egg fill in and loved it!

Happy Easter everyone! He is risen!
