Yep, I’m a bit behind in my blogging! After all, Easter was a week and a half ago, and some of the Easter fun in this post happened even a week before that. Lots of pictures in this one, so let’s get to it!
First, I bring you a massive egg hunt. I have to brag on my husband here for a minute – this big hunt is one of his work babies, and I’m so proud of him (and his co-workers) for pulling a hunt of this scale off! Last year it was 80 and gorgeous, and chaotic! It was the first hunt our church had done since getting really big, and the beautiful weather just brought people out of the woodwork. This year? Cold, with snow predicted the next day. Crazy Kansas City weather!
So what do you when you have 12,000 eggs (no, that is not a typo), and freezing cold, gross weather forecasted? You move the hunt and activities inside! Around 1,200ish people still showed up for the fun, and fun was had by all!
Our first stop of the morning? Cookie decorating! As you can see, the boys went a little overboard in the frosting and sprinkles department….
We had to see the Easter Bunny of course, which Lily loved! She’s all about high-fiving giant characters, that most children her age are terrified of. Jackson was just bored, which makes me laugh!
And then it snowed, but we’re not going to talk about that….
Easter Sunday’s weather was far more enjoyable! Look at those kids in their springy clothes! We did an egg hunt at home, which the kids all love and have come to expect. Well, the boys expect it. Lily doesn’t expect much, except for their to bananas in the house for snacks. And now she expects all plastic eggs to have “treats” in them, and is sad when she opens one and finds it to be empty.
Later that afternoon, we spent some time hanging out with friends, at their home, before heading off to church as a family. It was a wonderful day!
