We kicked off this year's Easter festivities with an egg hunt at the school where Alice will start kindergarten in the fall.
On Sunday morning, the girls were thrilled to see that the Easter Bunny hopped over and left some treats. Ivy has been saying for months that she hopes the Easter Bunny will bring her a chocolate bunny, I don't even think that she noticed, or even knew what it was. She figured out the other candy pretty quick, though!
I did not have the time or energy to make Easter outfits this year, or even to shop for them, but I managed to procure an adorable pair of dresses at the very last minute. The girls were super excited to put them on and we had to hustle off to church. Luckily, it was a lovely, sunny day, so we got some photos by the pretty tulips!
It took them a little bit, but they did a pretty good job finding all the eggs except that when we put them all back in the carton, we were missing one. It was Jon's worst nightmare, he's convinced we won't find it until it starts to rot, or he steps on it or sits on it... We looked and looked and looked and couldn't find it anywhere until Jon finally checked his shoe again. Good thing, or his nightmare would have come true!
We had an easy brunch, with our pretty eggs, bacon, berries, scones with Devon cream, jam, and honeycomb, and OJ. It was just right!
And that was Egg Hunt #3!
It was a beautiful afternoon, and I was delighted that we had such pretty sunshine for photos and WEREN'T boiling hot!
We headed home for an easy Easter dinner and barely got to the table before the girls were self-destructing from the few pieces of candy they managed to snag. We had a pot roast (pre-cooked, from Costsco - so easy, so good!), garlic green beans, and honey glazed carrots. I was going to make bunny rolls a la Pinterest, but they definitely didn't seem like they would work out with the frozen dough I was using. And my dumb cat jumped on the tray of risen rolls... But it was a yummy end to a lovely Easter.
I hope you had a nice Easter, or Passover, or Spring day, with all your favorite people and treats and traditions! Say what you will, but I enjoyed seeing everyone's photos of their holiday dinners and baskets and egg-dyeing and celebratory festivities.
