Well, this is almost a month late, but I'm going to write it up anyway. I was just looking at the pictures that I posted on Facebook & was reminded of the awesome time we had over Easter weekend. It was a little rushed since we had just gotten back from our NJ trip & were still trying to recover from that, but it was a ton of fun.
Friday night we went to a local church's Easter Eggspoltion. It was SO fun. They have a ton of things to do including bounce houses, cookie decorating, food, drinks, & the Easter Bunny & it's all free. But the topper of the night was when the helicopter dropped thousands of eggs into the field for the little ones to "find." AJ & Daniel LOVED the helicopter. It was flying right over us & then dropped all the multicolored plastic eggs. When it finished dropping the eggs the boys went into the field to gather up the plastic eggs. They then traded those in for a handful of candy. They loved everything about the event & we will be doing it again next year!
Saturday morning Zak & I got up early & went to meet my friend at Dream Dinners. This is a local company that sets up the ingredients & recipes & you go from station to station to make about 13 freezer meals in an hour. I. LOVE. THIS. It has been so helpful since having Zak, but my freezer cooking is probably a post for another day. While I was there Adrian took the boys to another egg hunt at one of our local parks. They hunted more plastic eggs, got more candy & got to play on their favorite play ground.
We met back up at the house & headed out to the zoo for their event "Eggs, Paws & Claws." We do this every year & go get the boys picture taken with the Easter Bunny (for free, yeah!) After meeting the Bunny, we walked around visiting animals & collecting more candy from the various treat stations throughout the zoo. It was a beautiful day to be out walking around, we really enjoyed it.
When we finally got home that night, we set up to color our eggs. The boys were a little over eager (and maybe over tired as well) & broke the first few eggs they were trying to color. But after the rough start we found our groove & the boys colored 2 dozen eggs so the Easter Bunny could hide them over night.
Sunday morning started with the boys charging into our room to wake us up excited to see if the Easter Bunny came. We didn't do baskets for them (they got enough candy that weekend!) but had hidden the eggs for them to find. They loved looking for them & found most of them pretty quickly. We had a rough time finding the last few as the Easter Bunny was very tired the night before when he was hiding the eggs. ;)
That day was filled with Easter fun. AJ & Daniel both got haircuts out on our back porch. Grandma & Grandpa came down to visit. We Skyped with Nana, Pop Pop, Uncle Jon, Aunt Rebecca & cousin Luci in Florida. We ate a ton of yummy food. And then we crashed after a very long & tiring weekend.
