Egg Hunting and Easter Morning

We were able to walk to a church egg hunt right outside our neighborhood, which was pretty awesome! The weather was good, and the boys were excited to run around for a bit before the hunt and watch the bigger kids. I thought they might actually get the gist, since we'd done an egg hunt at our friend's house the day before, but when it was time to grab eggs, they didn't actually pick any up! And the bigger kids of course snatched them all, but Henry and Holden didn't really care. The reason you see eggs in their buckets was because a really sweet family with two boys came over and gave them some from their own baskets! They had clearly filled their baskets, and decided to share, which was so kind! So we dumped them out again and let the boys play with them/put them in the baskets again. The church also had a little playground, so once most people had cleared out, the boys played for a minute on the equipment. And then we were able to walk right home and take a nap! :) Definitely a fun afternoon. 

Easter morning I didn't manage to get very many good pictures. But the boys had definitely figured out that there was good stuff in all the eggs! So they mostly wanted to open each egg and check out the goodies inside. (I did yogurt raisins, puffs, yogurt melts and a few with jelly beans or a chocolate egg.) Once they got to their baskets, I think their favorite part were the new sippy cups. I got them a few creative things, like a color with water book and a color wonder/mess free finger painting kit, and some play dough (which we probably won't try for a while.) My favorite thing was probably the wooden play food, which I had wanted to get them for a while. Then just a few little things, like socks, an egg shaker, and some bubbles. Happy Easter, Henry and Holden! :) I tried to get a bunny ear picture, but it didn't turn out great...honestly, none of my pictures of them turn out great! Hopefully by next year they will sit still for a picture. :)
