The Sportsman's Basket

As the Cranky Prince, Logan, has gotten older, the Cranky Queen has had to get a little more creative with his Easter baskets to keep him "in the spirit" of the Easter Bunny...So he being the "outdoorsman" that he is, I (or the Easter Bunny) decided to create a basket that would get his attention.
Camo & Ammo...
 The so-called Easter basket was actually an old ammunition box.
He got a "kick" out of the camo eggs with chocolate kisses!

...And the Bass Pro Shop Gift Cards will help him by the specific type of camo truck seat covers that he has been wanting.

 So once we got the Cranky Prince out of bed...He enjoyed his "not so typical" Easter Basket!

The Cranky King's Easter Basket.  He collects old & vintage Fireman collectibles.
The Cranky King was "not so cranky" with his new Dremel!
 And let's not forget that the Cranky Queen's "Easter Loot" was quite the royal treasure...a Majolica pitcher & wonderful smelling lotions & lets not forget CHOCOLATE!
So Easter has come & gone....I hope that everyone had a blessed day.  Next...it is "junkin'" season...
