Then we had the annual town Easter Egg Hunt that happened last weekend. Ty has gone every year since he's been old enough to participate. And it's FREE! I don't know of any other towns in this area that have a free event like this.
The Easter Bunny is still waiting for a hug or a hand-shake. It didn't happen THIS year. But at least he went up close enough (and on his own) to reach into the basket for a treat bag. Ty had to plant one foot as far back as possible and really reeeeeach for the basket...but he did it. Hee hee! He wasn't going any closer to the bunny than was absolutely necessary! He did wave to the bunny once he was safely back by my side. What a ham!
I really adore the Easter Basket I got for Ty this year. It's quilted fabric and has his name embroidered on it...from Pottery Barn Kids. He really loves it. It was the perfect size for the hunt. (Last year, his basket was just too small and eggs were falling out of it.)
The four year olds were presented with an open field full of eggs in plain sight and John and I shook our heads in a bit of disgust. These kids aren't babies anymore! They really need to make an effort to HIDE the eggs a bit. Give the poor kids some kind of challenge other than who can run the fastest and pick up the most eggs. Still fun tho.
Not much else going on. We had started to get the house ready for Easter company, but it turns out Grandma isn't coming. So now maybe I can talk the husband into going to Willow Valley for the weekend after all. (hint, hint!) He has me in budget mode, however, so I don't think a weekend away is likely at this point. I'd be happy with reservations at Larison's Turkey Farm too, I guess. :-)
