After a very fun-filled weekend it was finally Easter! We started our day with a quick breakfast before rushing off to church. Then it was on to the fun part...heading to my sister's house to celebrate. After getting all the kids outside to break some cascarones, these awesome confetti filled eggs my friend Nicole taught us how to make, it was time for a yummy (and very indulgent brunch). When our bellies were about to pop we headed outside again for some egg-cercise (hehe...sorry couldn't help myself).
The kids tore around the yard looking for hundreds of eggs. No, I am actually not kidding, I am pretty sure my mom had over 100 eggs filled and hidden for her five little granddaughters. But, hey, who can blame her? The kids loved it, and it was Easter. But after the effort my hubby and I put into training A for her egg hunt last year (a total bust since we didn't account for the eggs being hidden off the ground at a 2 and under hunt) we decided to let nature play its course. Well, that was a bust too. After watching A stop after each egg to open it and see what was inside, we finally got encouraged her on her way...a little quicker.
After a great morning it was eventually time for us to head for home. I don't even think we were fully in the door before A ran straight for her Easter goods...which included a new dress up outfit and shoes and sported them all over the house shouting "Happy Easter"! Although Easter has never been my favorite holiday, which I am still not quite sure why since it involves exhausting kids and a ton of chocolate, we had one of the best Easter's yet!
