We spent the Easter weekend in Fort Erie where we celebrated my nephew Jeremy's 12th birthday on the Saturday and then participated in the family Easter activities on the Sunday.

Colouring Easter eggs

For Jeremy's birthday the kids coloured Easter eggs prior to going on an Easter egg hunt in the park. Sebastian was absolutely thrilled to be running around the park picking up eggs, all which had a special surprise waiting to be opened. After the hunt we returned to Aunt Shari's and had pizza, cake and ice-cream. We were pleasantly surprised that with all the birthday festivities Sebastian managed to fall asleep at his normal time... which was great seeing that he was up at his normal 6 a.m. the following day!

The hunt!

Easter was spent with a lovely pancake breakfast and egghunt followed by an excursion to Aunt Helen and Uncle Roger's house where we had another Easter egg hunt and visited with our cousins Tricia, Michael, Leanne and Jon and their little ones, Noah, Joshua and Olivia. We then returned to Aunt Shari's where we had an Easter dinner with Aunt Shari, Uncle Dave, Kassy, Jeremy, Sophia, Uncle Dan, Nana, Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt Linda, Uncle Vince, cousin Kelly, Aunt Lynda, Uncle Bob, Bill, Patty and Stacy. Dinner and company was wonderful and although Sebastian was quite drained from not having a full nap he perked right up once the desserts came out (go figure!).

Easter morning. Very excited about finding an egg!

Overall it was a pleasant weekend spent with family and on Monday Sebastian napped from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.!! To say he was a tad bit wiped out would be an understatement!!

And one last thing to share...I've been telling Jeremy since I can remember that he wasn't allowed to sit in the front seat of our car until he was 12 (unknown fact by many, but legally children can't sit in the front until they're 12). Jeremy remembered. So of course since he was now 12 I honoured my statement and he was finally able to sit in the front seat of our car. Since he's been waiting soooo long for this day I wanted to commemorate it with a pic just for him. Love you Jer! xoxo
