We prepped for Easter weekend by going to the Naperville Safety Town for some fun with the bunny and an egg hunt. As you can see by the picture, Emery had more fun hunting eggs than she did hanging out with the Easter Bunny. After getting back home we broke out the hard-boiled eggs and colored some.
The Easter Bunny was very kind to us this year. He hid eggs in four different spots for us! My Sister’s house, both grandma and grandpa’s houses, and of course our house.
Although it technically wasn’t Emery’s first Easter, it was the first one where she knew what was happening. She loved carrying around her Easter basket and even put a few eggs in it.
While I was working out Sunday morning Carter, Emery, and Julie did a bit of bunny prep by coloring some eggs. I was more than happy to eat a couple of them when I got home 🙂
The Easter Bunny came a little early this year to the Ashbury Subdivision. Emery did good this year sitting on his lap, but I’m sure by next year she’ll be a screaming terror. Most kids are usually afraid of the bunny for the first few years, and by then she will actually know what is going on. Before the bunny left he put a bunch of eggs in the field, so Carter got some practice in. He had so much fun running around and filling up his basket. When we got home he checked out his candy and stickers that were in the eggs! Him and mom then colored eggs at home with a new technique this year – roller brushes!
This year went much better than last year. Carter wasn’t screaming bloody murder when we went and saw the easter bunny at the mall during the week. He was all smiles and we ended up with a great photo. It was pretty funny though to watch all the other screaming kids. The other amazing thing was that the bunny didn’t look creepy like the one last year.
Saturday our association did an easter egg hunt at the club house. Carter got to race alongside all his neighborhood friends to get a field full of eggs. Carter for some reason only picked up orange eggs. He hasn’t really expressed orange as a favorite color but after he threw a green egg back it was clear that orange is now the color of choice.
Saturday night Grandma Stubler came up and then Sunday Grandma and Grandpa Wassmer stopped by. Both brought goodies for Carter which he enjoyed thoroughly. Of course Grandma Stubler came with a basket full of Pirates gear: a new jersey, socks, and a mug. I’m guessing there is some sort of sports-ball season starting soon…
