“Easter”

Some photos from a little neighborhood egg hunt at the local park. I like egg hunts and I don't. I like how cute my 2 year old is finding eggs and putting them in her bucket. I don't like the competition and the expectations that don't line up. Tempted to do our own egg hunt next year with friends? But I also love going to this one and seeing friends!

Our Easter tradition is to put together a Scavenger Hunt for our girls and at the end they find a little parcel of prizes. We keep it small; this year's treats included candy and a t-shirt. Maeve had a little less candy and some Sesame Street figurines in her basket. Our girls are so thrilled by this tradition and you can see it in their smiles. It's fun!

I made Maeve a lamb bonnet, which she felt was not good enough when I gave Holly and Greta $1 bunny ears from Target. So... will be picking up a third set of bunny ears later this weekend! For a little group shot, Holly wore the lamb bonnet because Maeve was not going to give up "her" bunny ears. Oh to be 2 years old. This cute lil trio, such a great gang of sisters... most of the time.

And an outtake... #reallife

10 girls, 3 dozen eggs, 2 parents. Lots of fun? I had a moment, why are activities with kids often so messy? Fortunately everyone had fun and the mess was a pretty quick clean up. Gotta dye those eggs!

While we were at the Good Friday reenactment, an older women came up to me and asked me in Spanish if I knew Monica. Yes, I know a Monica. It turns out that she was Sarah, the mother of Monica, and she recognized us from photos Monica had shown her! Sarah invited us to her home for lunch with her big family (she has 9 children!). Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We ate soup and popcorn and drank morocho. Some of the family members played songs on the guitar and Holly and Greta cuddled puppies. It was seriously so great! I had plans to eat Fanesca, a traditional Easter soup, but spending time in a kind family's home definitely trumped soup!
