Easter 2016

How is it Easter already?  I feel like I say that for every holiday, but time is flying.

Our first egg dying experience was interesting.  Scout tried to eat the hardboiled eggs (shell and all) at least four million times,  Griffin decided that the dye would work best if he threw the eggs from a distance, and Stella and Bruiser sighed loudly throughout the whole process.

We (Scout) ended the show by dumping the yellow water all over Griffin and the floor.  Maybe next year will be easier? Or not.  Either way, the kids seemed to have a good time, and now we’ll be eating eggs for the next three years.

On Saturday, we went down to see my parents for an egg hunt and visit with the Easter Bunny.  Scout and Griffin loooooved the animals (shocker), and finding eggs, but as it turns out, much like Santa Claus, they weren’t too thrilled when I dropped them on a random Bunny’s lap and stepped back to take photos.  Pretty sure their trust in me is shrinking daily.

We did okay in the basket department this year.  Big hits were M&M’s and jellybeans (no doubt these children are mine), cute gardening tools and gloves (thanks target $1 bin!  we’re currently obsessed with ‘gardening’ over here), and butterfly nets.  The beautiful Jellycat bunnies that I may have wanted more for myself than I did for the kids, were left in the shade.  I’ll keep working on them.

We hosted a lovely little brunch for my side of the family, and then ended the day with dinner at Keith’s sister’s.  All in all, another amazing holiday in the books!
