Easter in the mountains

Over Easter weekend, we went and visited Greg's folks and had a lovely time. We spent one day up in the mountains and went to Grandfather with the kids. They liked crossing the mile high bridge. The wind whipping through the rails sounded like a train whistle at times. They also had fun hiking down the trail from there back to the parking lot. Meadow was very proud of herself and she scrambled over and jumped off rocks. "I'm doing it Dad!" "I am the only one that can do this." ;) It was also fun to check out the animals they have there: bears, deer, an injured eagle, otter, and mountain lion.





































































































On Sunday we drove out to the country to find a pretty place to try to take a nice family picture. Most of us had fun trying most of the time, the others we bribed with candy. :)





























Meadow tickled us to pieces with her lady-like-ness. Her favorite thing from the Easter bunny was her purse and glass slippers. Parker's favorite thing from the Easter bunny was squirt guns. :)

Eden had that same dress for Easter this year. I'm telling you, if we lived closer, they'd be BFF's! (glass slippers and pink bedazzled purses in hand)

You guy's are the beautiful people everyone is always talking about.

Beautiful pictures! I love your little man in his suit. He looks so much older in it! And you are, of course, stunning.

Adorable photos. I'm impressed that the kids weren't afraid to walk across the bridge.

Such a beautiful family.

It's cool you guys invited David Blaine over for the water gun fight and some levitation tricks (oops .. I mean illusions)

So brave to go to Grandfather mountain with them... I still won't walk over that mile-high bridge! We drove past it on our Linville Gorge campout a couple weeks ago... the other guys wanted to stop there. I told them that wasn't gonna happen. Your family is so cool.
