Last weekend, we celebrated Easter with Andy’s side of the family up at Fletcher’s cousins’ house!
It was so fun to dress Fletcher in his little bunny slippers that our friend Jayme gave him! This little hooded cardigan is one of my favorite articles of clothing that he owns and I’m so sad that this was the last time he wore it! It’s now in a bin of his outgrown clothes on a shelf in our basement that we’ll save for baby #2.
We ate lunch with the family and then Fletcher opened his Easter baskets — he received so many nice gifts from his aunties, uncles, cousins, and grandma!
We took a few family photos and then we were on our way home!
Andy suggested swinging by our favorite froyo shop on the way home and I’ll never say no to that!
On Easter Sunday, some of my family came over for lunch! Fletcher sported his cute little bib that his Auntie and Uncle gave him!
My mom made her famous chicken parmesan, along with some cheesy bread, and a few veggie sides. We made a replica of the classic Olive Garden salad, and raspberry lemon bars! I used the same recipe for our favorite cranberry bars and just added white chocolate chips, raspberries, and lemon zest instead of cranberries!
My parents brought Fletcher a fun little Easter basket filled with all kinds of goodies like bubbles, a stuffed bunny, and a ton of books!
We also snapped a few family photos of us to add to his baby book!
After lunch, we all went for a walk to the park where we sat outside for awhile to enjoy the gorgeous day. It was upper 70s and sunny and we kept saying how long it has been since we have had a beautiful Easter Sunday like this one.
Once everyone left, we took Fletcher around the house to “look” for his Easter basket since we didn’t have time that morning.
He loved opening his gifts with dad!
We’ve started a tradition to get him a card for each holiday and Andy always chooses a great one for Fletcher!
My mom used to always take flat lays of our gifts when we were little and I always loved looking back at previous years’ gifts so I’ve started doing this for Fletcher, too.
Fletcher just entered Leap 4 (Wonder Weeks) and has been SO into books lately! He loves to hold them and try to turn the pages all by himself.
