On Saturday, we were able to attend a little party that our friend Jo put together for her son's birthday. The party was an Easter Eggstravanganza for the kiddos in the neighborhood. About 14 families in total and about 30+ kiddos (that's a lot of kiddos!). Usually, Easter weekend we have a little bit of warm weather and flowers are shyly coming through to welcome the kiddos, this year though temperatures were a little chilly and there were no flowers nor green grass. A little sad looking but it didn't stop the fun the kids were having. We were supposed to bring a picnic lunch with us but I was too lazy and instead opted for McDonald's quick take out; the kids didn't mind it at all!
After lunch time, there was a little trail walk arranged for the little tykes--anything to take the wiggles out! While some of the parents walked with the kiddos, others stayed behind to hide the eggs. My children loved the walk--anything that lets them out and run around like crazy makes them happy! Wonderboy just took off both on the way there and on the way back! He is such a great little runner. Little Benny stayed by me the entire time. She likes to hold my hand and walk alongside me and talk my ear off! She is full of stories about her friends and the many "boyfriends" she has. Speaking of boyfriends--this girl is boy crazy! She has a crush on all of Wonderboy's friends. Everytime they come over, she tells them, "you are my boyfriend but I have many boyfriends, I have eight!". The little boys just run away from her shaking their head. Crazy girly!
Anyways, after our little 1/2 a mile walk we came back and let the kiddos find their eggs. They had such fun! I had first tricked the kids and told them that the purpose of the outing was to find a rabbit so we could get it and eat for dinner. They were eager to find a rabbit for dinner! Ha! I am so evil! Since they couldn't find a real rabbit they settled for chasing their friend who was wearing rabbit ears! It was hilarious. Little Benny kept running behind him and when she got close to him she tried to bite him. Loved it!
The entire day was a fun filled family date. The children picked up a dozen eggs each and they are still eating the candy. Little Benny believes that chocolate makes a good breakfast, we tend to difer but I am letting her have her way with her pickings. She is only little once.
A few more pictures from our fun-filled day. I have included some pictures of our friends.
