But, MOM! It's the 21st of SPRING!

This was Liam's reaction (and his exact quote) to seeing all of the snow as we were heading out to take him to a friend's house on Friday evening. He was baffled by the fact that it was the 21st of Spring (OK, it was the 21st of MARCH and the FIRST of Spring and he just smooshed those two things together).

But I agreed with his sentiment completely. What in the world was it doing SNOWING two days before EASTER?!?! Yeah, Yeah, I know the last time Easter came this early was a bazillion years ago and the next time it will be this early again will be TOO SOON!

Easter is supposed to signify Spring and Resurrection.....not MORE SNOW.

But we didn't let a little white stuff stop us from having a spectacular Easter. We went to Grand Rapids for the weekend and since there was no room for us at the in-law Inn, we got hotel room at a nearby Marriott property (courtesy of all those Marriott points I've been racking up since August) where the kids had a blast swimming in the hotel pool.

On Saturday we dyed Easter eggs and on Sunday we celebrated with way too much food. But it was fun. Carol & Don spolied everybody, as usual. Our kids just LOVE going to "Gramma Rapids" (as Owen calls it). And Kev & I love it, too. We'd love it more if gas prices would come back down, though. :)

OK, Spring, you can spring ANY day now!

How funny Carson has made the same kind of comment more than once. "Why is it snowing when it's SPRING?!" Good question!

Sounds like you guys had a nice Easter!

Trying to explain the weather is crazy. Addison couldn't understand where her snow bear went :)

I think Jordyn looks beautiful in the egg-dipping picture.
