The boys and I traveled to Duluth for Easter and a few additional days of our spring break. (Pat remained home and ‘worked.’)

Lucky for me Grandma was enthusiastic about taking charge of this year’s egg dyeing.

Lucky for Ryan, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy crossed paths in the hallway that night, and our toothless boy awoke to an Easter egg under his pillow with a dollar bill stuffed inside. Both Ry and Sam were excited to wake up and search for their eggs and baskets.

I managed to get them to dress up a bit since it was a ‘fancy occasion’ (and we were going to church).

the Easter bunny brought super hero capes…

I turned the self-timer on us a couple times too, to capture the very rare mommy shot!

We had a lovely meal, and later in the afternoon went to the aquarium. A perfect day to go apparently, there was almost no one there.
