Last night was full of fun as we let the boys "help" us dye the eggs. We were concerned about how to let them color without staining the chairs, tables, hands, etc. After much preparation of covering the table and having towels handy, we just did it.
We showed the boys how to write on the egg with the crayon and put their initial so it shows after being dyed. Since they couldn't see what they were writing, we brought out the regular crayons and let them decorate with those, too. Once we were down to just a final few eggs the boys started taking the spoons and pouring dye over them.
Today we went out to a Easter egg hunt put on by a nearby church. They had over a million eggs out over the course of their three hunts today. Not really a hunt though, more like thousands of eggs laying on the ground -we live in the desert, not many places to hide eggs!
We invited Nana to join us and the boys were thrilled to see her. The boys waited patiently during a little concert followed by a bunny/chicken race, and then a raffle drawing. When it was time to go out and get the eggs, the boys all held their little baskets and knew exactly what to do.
After the egg hunt we went down to the District and had some more Easter fun. Since it was lunch time we didn't do any of the face painting or visiting with the Easter Bunny (who all three are not huge fans of anyhow). The boys did manage to pick up some fun bunny hats while we were waiting to get our lunch.
The whole day was busy and full of Easter preparation. We are excited to see what the Easter Bunny has in store for the boys followed by a fun Easter dinner with our family and friends.
To your family from ours...
