Between the PTA, school, church, YMCA, and our neighborhood, I believe there were a total of seven Easter egg hunts that Mason was invited to this year. We made it to all but one and he had a blast at each of them. Before our first one, I had him practice finding eggs around the house to make sure he understood what to do. He caught on right away and had just as much fun hiding eggs as he did finding them. The only difference between the practice round and the real egg hunts is that I didn't have any candy in the eggs. At his first hunt, Mason had collected about five eggs before he realized they had something in them. From then on, at each hunt he would pick up the first egg, open it, drop it on the floor, and try to eat the candy!
After church on Easter we headed over to my parents house where my brother, sister's family, and grandma also were. My mom had put together a yummy Easter lunch and we all had a great time. Mason opened his basket and really loved everything the Easter Bunny brought him. It was full of trucks, sidewalk chalk, play-doh, stickers and bubbles. His new garbage truck from Grandma and Grandad is his new favorite toy (it appears in several pictures below). Mason soaked up an abundance of love, attention, and coconut cake before taking his nap and allowing us time to relax and chat with the family.
Happy Easter everyone!
