Noah's First Easter
And ours as a family! The E-Bunny brought Noah some treats, books, blocks, a bunny, clothes, cards. Thanks to all that remember Noah and us this Easter.
It's difficult when it's just the thee of us to get a picture with Noah looking at the camera.
This is our best attempt for our first family Easter photo.
After mass (the early one) we were planning on going out to breakfast....everyone seemed to be doing brunches that didn't start until 9 - we ended up at IHOP. Not great but still fun to have Easter breakfast as family.
