After church, we took a short drive over to see some of our family. My mom was here for the weekend, as well, so we had a nice (huge!) family celebration. BIG kudos to my cousin, A, who had special Easter treats for the kids, helped them dye Easter eggs (another first for my kids), and also helped with the Easter egg hunt.
Mister J initially declined to dye any eggs (there was another boy there who was just a bit older, and Mister J was enjoying the companionship. The other 6 children were ALL girls).
The Easter goodies from my cousin A, who was so thoughtful and careful about getting 'safe' treats for Miss M!
And, they're off! No children were harmed in the hunting of these eggs. Really. They might have gotten a little dirty, though.
Miss M got a little preoccupied with checking the contents of her eggs, and wasn't in much of a rush for the hunt. However, we encouraged her to keep looking and not open the eggs until we could check the contents for any unsafe candy.
Yes, I have two pictures of Miss M looking for eggs, and none of Mister J. He was always rather far away, and a bit too fast-moving for me to get good snapshots.
Hope you had an enjoyable Easter, were able to spend it with family and friends, and enjoyed a bit of time outside if the weather was nice!
