Easter eggs – everywhere! Although our Easter celebrations were only a week long, they included twelve dyed eggs, FIVE egg hunts, two petting zoos, two bunny photo opps, two train rides, one ferris wheel ride, one carousal ride, and one painted face. Whew!
First, we “hopped into Spring” in our Baker Ranch community.
Then, Vivian participated in two egg hunts at her preschool. Prior to this year, we owned zero plastic eggs. Now we own, well, a lot! She also brought home many bunny crafts.
On Holy Saturday, I took the girls to the Lake Forest Beach & Tennis Club’s Eggstravaganza event.
Then, Dan dyed eggs with Vivian.
On Easter morning, Vivian really enjoyed searching for and finding all of the dyed eggs that the Easter Bunny had hidden. She also liked seeing all of the goodies that were left in her Easter basket.
I took the girls to Easter mass and although I don’t think that I actually got to mutter a single prayer during the service, it was still nice to be there.
Dan was sick all weekend, so he didn’t get to participate in all of our Easter activities. He did get to join us all in an Easter afternoon nap, walk, and park play, though!
This was Lillian’s 1st Easter (and Vivian’s 4th!) and she really wasn’t old enough to keep up with her big sister, but next year, I think she’s going to give Vivian a run for her money in all of the egg hunts!
