Daddy and Andrew minutes before the Spingville Easter egg hunt.Okay so it wasn't exactly an Easter 'egg' hunt, candy just thrown on the ground worked just fine too I thought. The kids didn't care, candy is candy.
So Andrew only collected about 5 pieces of candy which means we only went into the football field about 15 feet. He sat right down after he collected his precious 5 pieces and started putting them back.
Here is Mr. Isaac after the hunt.
Our little family at out first Easter egg hunt.On Sunday during the boys naps we started preparing their baskets and hard boiled eggs. It was so much fun! We were way too excited, more so then the boys ever where during the whole day, but it was worth it. We just can't believe we are those parents now. Don't laugh, you all will be there soon, just wait, you will do the same thing.
Here I am preparing their baskets and putting together the eggs.
Walmart totally has the coolest Easter eggs now. I even saw animals for a Noah's Ark Easter egg hunt.
Here they are hunting away.
So cute. Andrew got a bit more in his basket this time. The other hunts were good practice for him.
I love this picture of Andrew. He just stopped there for 30 seconds holding his basket with two hands staring at something.
After a long hunt, the hunters got to explore through their treasures.Isaac ate most of his candy in about 5 minutes. Good thing we only put one jelly bean in each egg or else he would have pooped jelly beans out for the next week.
Family Picture: It would have been perfect if Andrew was looking forward and Isaac wasn't scowling. Oh well, I will take what I can get. lol
Two very proud parents. We had way too much fun doing Easter this year.It was such a nice day on Easter that we let the boys play outside for a bit. They love to run around together and play follow the leader.
Then of course the stroller and car has to be used to. I don't get why they like pushing the stroller so much. They will go back and forth on the sidewalk for an hour just pushing, walking, and then turning around again.
Sometimes we have a run away; its always Andrew.
After the car and stroller got old the Frisbee golf was busted out.Andrew mostly stared at it like this. Isaac was very patient with Andrew when it was his turn to throw. I was so proud of him.
See. This is Isaac's patient stance.
Our little girl at 23 weeksMy sister and her husband came over for dinner that evening and afterwards I had some fun and hid a chocolate bunny and some candy for them. Austin found 2 of the candies and the chocolate bunny.
It was such a fun day.For FHE the next day we dyed our eggs with Isaac and this was his favorite part of the whole holiday. He loved dumping the eggs into the dye and seeing them change colors. He kept re-dipping some over and over again in different cups.
We needed way more then 18 eggs for this boy. He kept asking for more and more. I am glad he enjoyed this activity so much. I was kind of worried he would get bored waiting for the egg to change colors but he did great.
Some of the kits I bought for the eggs were really neat. One came with it's own collapsible cups and the other one came with monster accessories. Here Isaac is putting eyes on his monster egg. Every day after we did this he wanted to play with his monster eggs. He would take one and run around the house growling at everything and everyone.
Our finished products. Aren't they so fun?Oh yeah, also on Sunday we made rice krispy hollow eggs and bunny rabbits. You just mold the rice krispy treats around a plastic egg and then fill it with m&m's. It was so cute and such a fun activity.
The boys liked the rice krispy treats a few days later because I let Isaac crack them open with a mallet. It was a good motor skill activity for Isaac plus m&m's are always a fun treat.
