eggs, treats, & roosters
egg hunts at school were fun but ancient history it seems. easter falls on the end of our spring break, so i have just been keeping the kids busy busy busy so i can stay happy happy happy. we had at least one recreational activity per day and i tried to sneak a daily educational activity in there as well. this post will just show the easter related outings. i wanted to keep them very happy on my birthday which fell on the thursday of their week off. so i made em pose as a present to me. then we headed out to enjoy the bunnies, goats and fresh strawberries at "the farm" here in town. the next day grannie annie hosted her annual easter party for the kids. they dyed eggs, made krispy trest eggs (idea from the cute commercial) ate bunnies in a blanket and hunted for their eggs. it was quite the success. on easter eve we headed out to the Barlocker Ranch for our ward's easter get-together. i spent most of my time at this rooster cage with caden. he was fascinated for some reason even though the cock-a-doodle-doo was too loud for him. (notice his fingers in his ears) the other kids ate and ate then loved exloring to find bunnies, cows, and horses. and yes, that is my oldest holding a chicken--have mercy. it was a great turn out, it was great to see and chat with friends we don't always get to. and the day was beautiful, so they hunted for their eggs, and we headed for home. a pretty successful holiday thus far considering easter morning is tomorrow.
