Yesterday, our new neighborhood sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt in the park next to the elementary school. They split the hunt into two groups - babies thru 5 yrs and 5 yrs and up. It was windy and cold, but the girls had a good time. Zoey "found" 12 eggs and Kaitlin "found" 9. There wasn't much "hunting" to be done because it was just a big field where the easter bunny dropped about 6000 eggs. When they blew the whistle, thousands of kids ran as fast as they could to gather eggs. I chased after Kaitlin and Brandon followed Zoey. The whold thing lasted about 2 minutes. (Kids sure don't mess around when it comes to picking up candy!) ;)
Out of the 21 eggs the girls found, 20 of them contained a piece of bubble gum and one contained a peppermint candy. Not exactly "baby friendly" candy, but it was definitely funny to watch Kaitlin open each egg with so much hope and then say, "MORE gum!?" after each one.
Saturday evening, we colored Easter Eggs! Check out some of the pics!
