Easter Weekend

On Easter weekend the kids and I went to an egg hunt at a friend's house. Her parents hid 1,000 eggs all over their property and divided up the search by age group. Tyler and Lucy were in different groups this year so I had to keep an eye on both hunters. They found lots and lots of loot! Lucy used her ballerina basket and Tyler used the dinosaur basket he had made the day before with Grandpa Gary.

After the hunt we came home and colored our hard boiled eggs for the Easter Bunny to hide. Tyler had a Cars themed kit and Lucy had princesses...of course. They had a really good time and Zach and Tyler enjoyed dipping their eggs in every color to see how that would turn out. Kind of brown if you were wondering...

On Easter Sunday Tyler woke up bright and early to see what the Easter Bunny had brought him. He was excited to see that he got 2 dinosaur books, some dinosaur pajamas, some dinosaur Easter eggs, a dinosaur plate set, and some dinosaur toys. See a theme here... Tyler also woke up and saw Mommy outside "fixing" some of the eggs that the Easter Bunny had hidden. Oops. Lucy woke up a bit later and checked out her girly basket with princess dishes, some pretty pajamas, and some books. The Easter Bunny was trying to be more practical this year.

We hosted an egg hunt and brunch on Easter Sunday. The kids had a great time in the backyard finding the eggs and got a wee bit 'o help from the adults. I don't know if that was just out of the goodness of their hearts or the need to eat the food in the house. :) Tyler was a pro at egg hunting, Quillan followed right behind, and Lucy was a more cautious hunter. She kept looking over her shoulder to see if that darn bunny was going to pop out. She's not a fan.

After the egg hunt ended we came in the house and had a YUMMY brunch. The kids wolfed down their eggs and monkey bread so that they could tear into their Easter baskets. Lucy and Quillan got some adorable Fancy Nancy dress-up dresses. They looked so fancy.

Tyler got some really cool swim goggles that the kids enjoyed. We enjoyed how they looked too. Ha ha!

1,000 eggs! That's insane!
I bet Lucy kept looking over her shoulder to make sure that no one was going to steal her eggs.
