Easter was last Sunday. It was lovely, filled with chocolate, food, friends, and egg hunts. Oh, and some church too: church with lots of people. After the service many of them took part in an egg hunt. With oh, 100 kids under the age of 12 looking to participate, we had to stagger the start, and Zion and Harvey were in different waves; but never mind, as soon as Harvey entered Zion found him and they went to work together.
Then while I helped manage the rest of the chaos, they sat and ate their loot. All of it.
Then (after some more church) it was home for our Easter party, and our own egg hunt. We had to hide all the eggs before the kids could start, and then keep the bigger ones waiting while the smaller ones were assembled; there was some impatience. But it was mostly good-spirited.
We had lots more eggs per person than we managed at the church hunt, so everyone got as many as they wanted.
Well, maybe not quite everyone: Zion was exhausted by church and all that chocolate (he and Harvey also ate the best part of a chocolate bunny for breakfast) so he was sleeping during the main portion of the egg hunt. When he woke up we hid some more eggs for him and another late arrival. He had lots of help finding them.
Our eggs variously had candy, stickers, and classy toys from Oriental Trading Company (really!). All were well-received, and how better to enjoy the loot than with a good friend?
Happy Easter everyone!
