The first part of their trip they spent about an hour away at a resort. We were very excited when they finally got to come stay with us so we could enjoy them a little more. The first night we just stayed home and cooked out so they could enjoy Ryder in his own element and check out the area we lived in. We spent a little time at the park and then Ryder spent the rest of the evening playing with the Easter basket his Grammy sent him.
Gram and Papa - Thank you for giving us that opportunity! You have no idea how much awe appreciated it!
The next day we loaded up the car for a trip to Sedona. We had briefly seen it on our way to the Grand Canyon and Gram and Papa had never been. We got to look at the amazing red rocks, browse the shops, and ate at a cute little restaurant. It was a nice relaxing day spent with the grandparents :)
Ryder on the way to Sedona
Ryder loves his Mimi
And she loves him too!
Trying to get a picture of my grandparents is impossible!
They are worse then a toddler in front of the camera always looking away and not cooperating.
This was the best they were willing to give me!
The red rock at Sedona... so gorgeous!
I know hate is a strong word, but he kinda hated him!
I kept telling Ryder I was so sad he didn't like the Easter Bunny. We waited around a little while and tried again, but it was pointless. We didn't buy the official picture because our little man was not happy and our iPhone picture told the story just fine!
After the Easter Bunny was a complete fail, I was really nervous about doing Easter Eggs. I mean I knew he'd like this wayyyy more, but the idea of dye that could stain our almost all white kitchen and a toddler had me a nervous wreck! While he napped Gram and I ran to Wal-Mart to get a cheap plastic table cloth and it worked wonders. At first I was doing the eggs and having Ryder watch, but pretty soon he was asking to help dye the "balls". Anything that is round in shape is a "ball" to Ryder and they are his favorite thing in the whole wide world right now! I ended up letting him get really involved and was so nervous about how his cute little hand was turning all shades of blue, and even more nervous when he whiped his face with his blue hand. Thankfully a quick Google search took care of that problem and dying Easter eggs was a huge success!
