Easter recap (finally!)

     Easter was interesting for us this year. It was probably the first time in my entire life that we didn't spend it in the normal way with all of our family and going to church. But being in a new area makes it hard to celebrate in the traditional way. Especially when we're still living in the hotel. We did make sure that Owen's second Easter was a blast for him, though. He was just a tiny baby last Easter so we didn't bother with the Easter bunny or egg hunts or anything like that. This year, we went to a local park for the Easter Eggstravaganza. Owen enjoyed all the animals in the petting zoo and dancing to music and picking up Easter eggs. He also met the Easter bunny, though he didn't seem that impressed. And he was most certainly not a fan of having his face painted. My parents came to town for Easter weekend so we enjoyed having them celebrate with us and I was able to get some really cute pictures of Owen hanging with his grandparents.
Owen tried to make friends with this alpaca.

Cutest Easter bunny ever!

Not interested in sitting on the Easter bunny's lap, but he did tolerate being near him (actually a her).
The 0-3 age group of the egg hunt was insane! You'd think it would be more low-key since they're little, but some parents are nuts. We only picked up about four eggs since Owen doesn't eat candy.
We had his face painted to look like a bunny.
Our baby bunny.
A quick pic with Grams and Grampa and then it was home for a nap.
On Easter morning, Owen got to check out his Easter basket.
Peeps, bubbles, and books!
We had lunch at Acres of Land winery and it was fantastic!
The view around the winery was beautiful.
Checking out local flora with Grampa.
Clover blossoms are apparently tasty.
Here, try one Grampa.
What a cutie.
A sweet picture of my parents.
A sweet pic of Owen with his grandparents. You don't want to know what I was doing to get Owen to smile like that.
Sooooo close to walking by himself.

Grape vines at the winery.
My handsome boys.
