The day before Easter, when all the Easter activities were happening in our town, we went out to a nearby island for some festivities. It was actually a really amazing Egg hunt, with games and bounce houses, really great music and a lot of activities. We got there pretty late due to some scheduling conflicts, so after meeting up with Kristy, Brian and Alexa proceeded to drive to another area of town for another Easter Egg Hunt and Bunny photos.
For such an affluent area where most residents are older couples, we surely do get spoiled with a lot kid oriented activities. There were at least 7 different egg hunts that I knew of, all of which were really great.
At the new location, they had complementary Bunny Photos, and a modern “egg hunt” where you walk from store to store picking up candy. The girls were more interested in walking around and saying hi to the store clerks than candy itself, though that was a big bonus.
Afterwards we had lunch at a waterfront restaurant and then went to our house to continue the day with some egg painting, which you can see here.
The next morning, we gave Lexi her Easter Basket. She LOOOOVED everything in it. We read books, played with the yo-yo and the slinky, and she especially loved the chirping chick and the pouncing bunny.
After we got done with the Easter basket, I decided to share some of the Easter sweets I claimed earlier in the week and gave her a chocolate bunny pop. She didn’t eat more than half an ear and she was so cute doing it, but since then I resolved to stop offering sweets at all. I used to occasionally ask her if she wants ice cream when we are out, because I know how happy it makes her, but I have recently decided that nothing good comes of sweets, and unless she specifically asks, I should not be offering just because I know she’d like it. It’s been hard holding my tongue and not offering her things once in a while, but I’ve been surprised by the fact that she really asks less than I had originally thought. We don’t eat many sweets at home, so it’s not usually a problem here.
Man, that makes me want some chocolate! 🙂
