We made things a little more informal this year for Easter than we usually do. With the events of the weeks preceding the day combined with me not feeling well made us happy and content to just stay home and snuggle our kids on our own. Instead of multiple egg hunts at different locations we opted for a little one in our own backyard. The kids all picked out a bag of candy at the store and then helped me load up all the eggs. They loved helping with this. It was really cute.
Luke loved just crawling around outside. He ate lots of dirt and grass, but he was having so much fun that we just couldn't bear to stop him.
Mr. Leo really wanted to join us and stared wistfully from the window.
After the first hunt the kids got to eat the candy out of two eggs each, and then Emma took a turn hiding all the eggs. After that hunt they got to eat the candy out of two eggs and then Sara took a turn hiding all the eggs. Do you see a pattern here? The loved this!
It was much more simple and quiet than most years, but it was really fun and I was so happy to just have some time alone with the people I love most in the whole world.
