Easter

Preparation - Friday Auntie B came over and helped Sweet Pea dye two dozen eggs. Well, actually 23 eggs. One of them was missing a bit of shell (but not the membrane) and looked like it would probably explode if I boiled it, so I didn't. A full 11 of the eggs ended up light blue - Sweet Pea's favorite color. ha ha!
The Excitement of the Hunt - As it turned out, the Easter Bunny somehow knew that we would be at Auntie A & Uncle's house, and hid the eggs there - can you imagine! Sweet Pea made a happy, surprised scream with every single discovery (23 real and 12 plastic eggs). We all enjoyed the hunt a lot.
Just Checking - Clever Auntie A helps Sweet Pea check to be sure The Bug isn't sitting on any eggs.

The Feel of Wind in Her Hair - The Bug LOVES being outside and will cry to go out. She has had little exposure to fresh grass (since she spends most of her time outdoors in the Baby Bjorn following Sweet Pea, who is usually riding her tricycle, with me), so she didn't even crawl around the yard, she was having so much fun poking at the grass and enjoying the breeze, and giggling while watching her sister run around finding eggs. This is her biggest grin - something relatively new. It always makes me giggle out loud. ha ha!
