Happy Easter!

We went to Smith Center for Easter this year.  Thankfully since Blake had the weekend off and Fridays are his normal 'off' day, we were able to go down Thursday night already.  It was nice to spend all day Friday just hanging out.  We did end up driving to Phillipsburg that morning to go and visit the nearest ACE store to Smith Center.  We had a good talk with the one of the owners there, so it was a good trip and nice to see a small town ACE doing pretty well!  When we got back to Smith Center, we went to Orschlen's to see the chicks, ducks, and bunnies.  I think this was the highlight of the day for Brooks!

On Saturday afternoon, Smith Center had their community Easter Egg hunt.  They had a division for 0-2 aged kids, and that was perfect for Brooks.  He was able to get several eggs, so that was fun for him!

He was very excited when he discovered some of the eggs had M&Ms in them!

On Sunday we went to church.  Brooks is constantly talking about Grandma and Papa's church, and especially whenever he sees a cross somewhere.  I think he really likes the stained glass cross they have at the front of their church!  After church we had a great Easter lunch and then it was on to another Easter egg hunt.  Brooks is getting pretty good at them!

 Brooks' older cousins were really good about leaving some eggs for just Brooks to get

Just had to take a picture of the 3 Burgess men.  Looks like they were in serious conversation, but I doubt they were! :)
We did take a few family photos as well, so any of you who are wondering just how big I'm growing with baby #2, here you go! I'm ready to be done being pregnant and carrying all this extra weight!  This picture is probably the best one we got.  Brooks didn't want to look at the camera and smile in very many of them.
 But this one is probably my favorite! Trying to get Brooks to smile!
Now with a fun Easter weekend over, we really have no other plans until the baby comes! It's nice to just get ready for her arrival, but it's kinda crazy to think that it's the next thing on our schedule! Hopefully we don't have to wait all the way until May 7 and she decides to come early! (I'm ready now!)
