This weekend the kids and I were invited to my friend Jane’s home for a practice egg hunt. You know, because running around looking for colored plastic is a highly hone-able skill. Or maybe because two mommas just needed an excuse to finally get four winter-stir-crazy kids outta the house!
Since it down-poured the entire day before, proper footwear was a must. I suggested her rain boots, but Songbird decided to channel her inner cowgirl instead.
Bug is 6 months older than Blondie. She totally put the moves on him and reached for his hand to take this one. Watch out boys!
And let’s not forget Blondie’s baby sis. Remember the shower I threw back in October? Well, this lil’ squish is definitely doing her part to fill my baby snuggle quota these days!
Gang’s all here. Ready, go!
Their backyard is a gorgeous expanse of 3+ acres that is adjacent to a horse property. Lots of running in the sun and places to tuck the treasures. To prevent one kid from hoarding all the goodies, Jane assigned a color to each kid and they could only touch the eggs of that hue. This helped Songbird leave the “easy” ones alone and kept the little kids from fighting over the eggs hidden at their level.
Hey horsey… wanna see my chocolates?
In the end, Bug was upset that the eggs “only have candy and no toys.” Seriously, kid? Unfortunately this stems from watching “surprise egg” videos on YouTube. If you know what I’m talking about please join me in a collective eye-roll. If you don’t and choose to look it up, consider this fair warning… your kids will be obsessed and you will have zero idea why.
At least we’re ready for the real deal bunny-dude and we know what Bug’s expecting in those eggs!
