This past weekend we had two families come stay with us from out of town, and along with a family of friends who recently have moved into town, there were a total of four families - 8 adults and 8 kids- that got to spend Easter weekend together. It was great fun for all of us, but perhaps even more for the kids - they played their little hearts out with all sorts of pretend play and outdoor shenanigans. (The adult fun consisted of drinks and conversation about Enneageams! late into the night) On Saturday night when I put Sloane to bed, she exclaimed with a satisfied sigh, "Oh man, that was really a great day."
One of the things we did on Saturday was a little egg hunt for the kids. I hid hard boiled eggs and kazoos all around the yard and the kids were so enthusiastic in their search; most of these pictures here are from their hunt. Afterwards the kids exchanged some eggs for treats and dropped the rest of them into natural dye water, which didn't turn out like they were supposed to but none of them seemed to mind: there was way too much playing to be had.
