Easter 2010

Thursday morning we packed up and headed out on an 8 hour car ride to Phil's parents' house in Murrells Inlet, SC to surprise Phil's dad for his 60th birthday. Easter was the following Sunday so we planned to stay and spend the holiday at the beach. It was so nice to get away, even if it was only for a long weekend!

Thursday morning we went to breakfast at our favorite breakfast place, Nibil's at Surfside Pier. We got the best seat in the house, an ocean view on each side!

Checking out the ocean with Daddy. The water was freezing!

Saturday afternoon we dressed Philip in his Easter outfit for a second attempt at a picture with the Easter Bunny, this time at Coastal Mall.

"Philip, where are the bunnies"

Waiting to see the Easter Bunny. So excited! He kept pointing and smiling. But we all knew what was coming...

I think the face says it all here. Such a contrast to last year!

Oh well! I'm glad we went back for a take two, even if Philip wasn't. He'll laugh when he's older!

And anyway, ice cream makes everything better.

Getting a pony ride from Daddy.

Dying Easter Eggs. He loved dunking the eggs in the cups!

Gotta love that face.

Admiring his handy work with Grammie and Grandpa.

He cracks himself up.

Checking out the surprise the Easter Bunny left for him!

Hugging his bunny from Great Grandma G.

A kite!

Later we had an Easter Egg hunt in the back yard. He loved it!

He was so excited to find all of the eggs and put them in the basket.

Found all of the eggs. Now what?

Kite flying with Daddy

All in all it was a great weekend! Philip had so much fun running around, playing at his grandparents' house and visiting with family, and he was a great traveler considering how long the ride was! Hope everyone had a Happy Easter, too!
