It seems like we had all sorts of intersecting holidays and celebrations this week. Easter seemed later than it's been in awhile so KaNana's birthday (which was also Earth Day ) was same week which was also when the kids had a Spring Break and then there was the circus and all sorts of baseball and softball. . . it's been a busy week.
But, of course Easter activities were some of the high points.
|It seems only my two biggest boys were interested in the Easter Bunny.|
Lex was very excited to head to the town egg hunt.
Until we walked right through a whole field of "hidden" eggs to get there and he wasn't allowed to pick up any of them. Then, since we were a little early, he had to sit right at the start line and look at all the eggs in front of him he wasn't allowed to pick up. It put him in such a bad mood he refused to participate when the hunt actually started. He just sat in the middle of the field with his empty bucket.
But since he is the baby, apparently some older siblings felt sorry for him because he ended up with a collection of eggs in his bucket without finding any on his own.

Sunday morning the kids got up bright & early to find more eggs. (Well, Azia got up early and woke up all the boys. The older two found eggs but Lex wasn't eager to wake up, so once again the older kids delivered eggs and treats to him.)
|Israel. . . not sure if he's really awake yet.|

|We didn't roast any peeps this year, but they still didn't stick around very long.|
|I absolutely hate this stuff. And yet I still buy it about every other year. I think it takes about two years before I stop finding it everywhere in my house.|
In the afternoon we headed over to Mom & Dad's for dinner and even more searching for Easter Eggs.

|Our Easter Bunny was pretty sneaky this year. That and the huge yard made for some actual hunting involved in the Easter egg hunt.|
And to top it all off, the weather was nice enough to go without shoes. It was a pretty beautiful day. Of course the kids are already in holiday withdrawal. First thing Monday morning they wanted to know which holiday was up next. I told them there really wasn't one any time soon. That wasn't the answer they wanted, so they decided they'd have to come up with their own holiday.
Planning for "Bubble Celebration" is now underway.
