Saturdays with "The Storm"...

The Storm Story:

April 15-16, 2006 -- Palmer's First Easter Weekend, Destin, Florida.

I love Easter. Short of Thanksgiving, it is my favorite holiday. This particular Easter, Mr. Palmer was eight months old and Peyton had just turned three. What a wonderful Easter weekend it was.

Six-ten months old is my favorite time for babies! They are just so cute and chunky. Palmer was so cute and overly chunky (his cheeks were so cute and kissable). Peyton had just turned three and was such a big boy! He was still young enough that I could dress him in cute smocked outfits -- I think this particular year was the last year I was able to get away with that (of Peyton)!

We celebrated Easter "Saturday" at Brent's Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Linda's house in Gulf Breeze. The entire family was there, including Brent's "Gran the Man." Even today, it is always a great time when all the Aunts, Uncles and Cousins get together, especially at Jimmy and Linda's...they live pretty much right on the water, so scenery is just an added bonus!

Easter Sunday, the Easter Bunny delivered the boys baskets, and as you can see, even a little eight month old knows candy is good! This particular year, we skipped we were at Meme's house, so we celebrated by enjoying the beauty God gave us by going to the beach. After a little while there, we ate Easter lunch at my favorite restaurant in the entire world -- The BackPorch in Destin.

It was a great weekend. Wonderful memories (and cute pics) were made! Easter's are always wonderful -- no matter what age!

Thanks for letting me share some of my favorite Easter pictures!
