Happy Be-Lated Easter

I know it's no longer Easter today, but I didn't post yesterday because I wanted to spend quality time with my family. 

Easter may just be Julian's favorite holiday thus far to celebrate. He loved Easter egg hunting! Even more after he realized chocolate was in the eggs! Talk about one happy baby bear. I will say this though after seeing everyone's posts with insane amounts of toys and what not in their children's Easter baskets. I almost felt bad for not filing his with more. Then realized it was the perfect amount for him! Socks, toy plane, sidewalk chalk, Thomas the Train color book with stickers, and a M&M Fan that hold the M&M's. 

I'm not sure when parenting became all about the amounts of things you get your children, but at this rate I've lost the race. 
I'm completely okay with it also! We've never gotten Julian's picture taken with the Easter Bunny or Santa. I don't think we will either. Not to sound like a parent that doesn't care, but it just seems a bit pointless to me. Those holidays shouldn't revolve around that. Or the amount of things you can buy. I see holidays as a time to spend with your family an actually enjoying that time together. 

Also moments like this are my favorite to catch. I hope everyone had a beautiful day with their families and enjoyed the lovely weather outside!

What was your favorite moment during Easter with your family? Did you go crazy with your kids Easter baskets? Or did you stay simple this year?
