it must be almost easter.

max started carrying eggs under her chin when her bucket got too full.
brennan found the batman egg, and then had me help him dye an egg with a spider-man face.
chase sucked on an empty blue egg the entire time,
and discovered that he is terrified of swinging.
terrified might not do his fear justice.
the baby man curled up into a stiff ball of trepidation,
while holding his breath.
eyes big as golf balls.
face beat red from clenching every muscle in his body so tight.
we all laughed and laughed and laughed.
who has ever even HEARD of a baby being scared of a swing?!
max swung next to him and would jump off to tickle his toes.
he would laugh for a minute and then get scared again.
finally when the swing slowed down he calmed down and started his happy squawk.
then max wanted a turn in the baby swing so i put chase on my hip and i pulled his hands out to touch her when she went by.
they thought that was hilarious good time fun.
everyone took home a basket of candy filled eggs and a stuffed animal from GiGi.
then the clouds rolled in and the wind felt like it had some sprinkles in it.
heaven bless the family yard.

it must be almost easter.
