Wordless (OK, nevermind… Wordy) Wednesday – Easter Party Day!

Fun day today – egg hunt and Easter parties!

Ok, so this post started out as Wordless but that’s only because I wanted to get it up before going back to the boys’ school for their parties.

They had a blast! C’s was first – I got there just in time for the egg hunt. At first he totally though the point was to just move eggs around the courtyard, but then he noticed other kids were actually keeping eggs and then he really got into it. After the hunt they had a special snack time with treats brought by the kids – cookies, ice cream, juice boxes… but what was C most excited about?


He does not take after me! I mean, I love carrots and all (my sister-in-law Lauren and I have been known to demolish carrots from veggie trays). But to choose them over cookies? And ice cream? He’s definitely following in Brian’s footsteps there.

After C’s party I went over to J’s class and got to watch their egg hunt, which was much larger scale. The classes all lined up on the sidewalk, and then after “On your mark…get set…go!” they took off! Parents were scattered around taking photos and video, and let me tell you, the kids would not let us be obstacles to getting eggs.

What the kids don’t know (and what I love) is that during nap time the teachers redistribute the eggs so everyone ends up with the same amount.

The kids also don’t know that later that night, the parents totally dig through the eggs and snack on the candy supply.

All so the kids don’t have too much sugar, of course.

      Glad you posted the picture first since I needed a new background for my computer and glad they had a great time at the party.

    Haha…I don’t know why I find this so funny, but I just did a post saying how you liked to do “Wordy Wednesday” and then I clicked on your blog and saw you did Wordless Wednesday. Anyway, I like the picture of your boys ready for Easter!

      Well, I’m actually going to add to it and make it a Wordy Wednesday – I just wanted to get a post up really quick before leaving to head over and help with their egg hunts! :)

    So the kids would knock you down in order to get to an Easter egg, right? LOL

    The boys look pretty darn happy there. :) And cute!

    Great photo. Naturally the boys are adorable, but I also like the simplicity of the background and charm of the baskets.
