Easter 2011....Away We Go!

So...Easter was about three weeks ago, so it's about time we update you all with the fun we had over that particularly great weekend. Thank you to all for the cooking, cleaning, and company. It was great (as always) to see everyone.

First up; Ashleigh's family. The trip to Central Illinois began on Thursday night , where we hopped onto I-57 South and made the 3 hour drive to the place where dreams come long as you're dreaming about opening a Meth Lab*.

To Mattoon!

   First Family Easter Pic, and Jude getting Ready to get his Easter duds on

Baby Bennet Bunny and Jude with Grandma, Momma and Great Grandma     

Jude meets his Great, Great Grandma Sims and the Family gathers for a rare 5 Generation photo op!

And then the Bennet Clan hopped their way West to what can only be described as Central Illinois' version of Mexico. Not because of the beautiful beaches or constant sunshine, but because you should not drink the water.

To Pekin!

Grandma Menk and the Great Grandparents (also Menk). Thanks for a Great time!

Uncle Jeff and Jude hit it off (can't you tell). Great Grandma said "let me show you how it's done!"

Then the Easter Bunny showed up! What???!!! Even Max got in on the action, but who could it be.....?

"..and I would have got away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids and that mangy mutt..."
(in case people did not get the reference)

*though she laughed, Ashleigh did not approve this joke
