Happy Easter!

This morning Zack raced downstairs to see what the Easter Bunny left him. Thanks to Nana, Pop-Pop, and Auntie Jen, quite a lot of fun stuff!

The Easter "basket" is a wooden one that Zack and I painted this week. We were going to stick foamies on, too, but he decided at the last minute not to. I knotted a handle out of plastic lanyard strips and beads and we called it a go.

The first thing he went for was his #88 Nascar chocolate car that Nana and Pop-Pop sent (reminder -- neither Rick nor I follow Nascar, and this is NOT Pop-Pop's favorite driver, yet somehow, Zack has decided this is it for him).

He got eggs with money in them....

And then the obligatory bunny ears were eaten off (along with the head, and the toes)......

Then it was time to hunt the Easter eggs that Mommy had hidden in the front yard.

Some were literally tossed across the yard willy-nilly....

And some were carefully placed....

We ended up collecting and re-hiding the eggs five times. Then Zack and Daddy played with these Bunny Paratroopers that Nana sent (by then my camera battery had run out). Zack is bouncing off the ever-loving walls from the sugar high and I'm contemplating a nap, but it's already 5pm.

Happy Easter everyone!

    My fav is still the St. Patrick's Day story. My niece has a "fairy" door in her room - the fairies are never seen but leave presents and decorate on holidays.


I appreciate comments! Thank you for contributing to the conversation.
