It was our first Easter in St. Louis and that meant we got to participate in a long standing tradition of all day Easter brunch with the Roach family. Matt and Carly hosted us all in their new home and Dennis and Geri were in town to celebrate Easter and Geri's birthday. The kids played hard all day, inside and out and our bellies were full from the delicious brunch spread. Community is a large part of what brought us to St. Louis and it felt good to share this holy day with our friends and family.
Our friend, Kevin, dressed as the Easter bunny and surprised the kids. This costume was made by Kayla when she was little and has been an Easter tradition year after year. Kevin was the most amazing E. Bunny but the kids quickly figured out his true identity.
Julia and Bennett were leery of the bunny and shed many tears over his presence. It's all fun and games until someone dresses like the Easter Bunny and crashes your party...
The girls gave an impromptu dance performance that really knocked our (and their) socks off.
Bennett's other best friend, Abe. (Bennett Camp, we miss you buddy and still talk about you all the time.)
These are some of my favorite girls.
And look at dem muscles.
Scott and Kevin with their biggest fans, Abe and Bennett.
