Easter Eggstravaganzas

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.

Neither of the girls are too fond of the Easter Bunny, yet.

Meow! Meow!

Egg Hunt Haul

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 Good Friday, daycare and preschool were closed, so I stayed home with the girls and took them to the Irvine Spectrum Center to ride the attractions, walk around, go to lunch, and get some treats.

On Holy Saturday, I took the girls to the Lake Forest Beach & Tennis Club’s Eggstravaganza event.

Then, Dan dyed eggs with Vivian.

Colorful Eggs

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.

New Goggles!

New Sunglasses!

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!

  1. I think my favorite photo is the fashionista shopping! I love seeing how you enjoy your girls and make the holidays special for them. In a couple more years, once Viv and Lil are reading (Viv probably already is) perhaps you can introduce the Easter Sunday treasure hunt with a trail of clues to decipher. It was a tradition Dan and his sister Robin loved.

      Viv’s not reading yet, but she’s doing well learning the sounds of the letters. Dan did share his memories of his Easter treasure hunts as a child growing up and it would definitely be a fun thing to do with our kids when they get older. I just hope that we have the energy to create the trail of cues – ha! Maybe Grandma and Grandpa can help us out when the time comes for that!
