Easter Egg Hunt
We had a wonderful Easter. It started a few days early with the Coppell Home School Association's Easter Egg Hunt. Here is the motley crew that came out to look for eggs laid by a rabbit.
This bunny didn't really hide his eggs. They were just sort of randomly scattered around a field so it was a mad dash to just scoop up as many as you could. In order to make it a little more fair, the little kids got to go out early and big kids had to wait a few minutes. But when it was time to go, Nicholas was on the move!
Rachel ran around too gathering up the treat-filled goodies to fill up her basket.
Sweets for my sweetie.
Nicholas gathered up 22 eggs and apparently he got more than anyone else. What was amazing is that he then went around passing out all of his eggs by sneakily dropping them into other kids' baskets. He didn't even look in them to see if they had a treat that he liked before he gave them away. He gave out all but one egg which had a Ninja Turtle theme on it.
It was funny that his Minion-themed bucket actually looked cute upside down. It looks like a minion with a mustache!
Of course, at least for now, the Easter bunny still comes to our home on Easter morning. The kids waited patiently upstairs until I could go down and get the camera.
They like that the Easter Bunny hides their baskets and they have to hunt for them.
Nicholas had trouble finding his basket. He eventually found it hiding UNDER all of his Nerf guns and play swords.
Ahh! Sweet success! They got some candy but also card games, puzzles, and a big pack of glow sticks.
Rachel had even more trouble finding her basket. She even shimmied behind the piano to look for it!
She was happy to have finally found it hiding in a cabinet. She dug right into the big chocolate bunny!
Happy Easter everyone!
