This year was a lot of fun, especially since Logan is a little older & we can do a few more things to celebrate Easter. We woke up & I brought down Logan's Easter basket since he still has no idea who or what the easter bunny is. He was thrilled to see all of the cool stuff in his basket. I tried to get a picture before he tore into it & that only pushed him to have a massive meltdown. He wanted the basket NOW.
After playing with some of his new toys, Bill made brunch. We had our usual hash brown-sausage casserole, toast & OJ. Logan ate every last bit of his. Impressive! We hung around for a while & relaxed before we got ready for Aunt Ju-Ju, Uncle J & Cousin B to come over for the Easter egg hunt.
They came over & we relaxed for a bit while the kids played. Soon Bill & Aunt Ju-Ju took them downstairs into the playroom while Uncle J & I hid the plastic eggs around the house. They were everywhere! Logan & Cousin B came back upstairs, grabbed their baskets & were off in a flash. Logan was kind of confused at first but soon remembered (or listened) to what he was supposed to do & tried to hog all of the eggs. They had a lot of fun.
After the rest of the family left to go to their other Easter engagements, Logan & I painted wooden eggs. I read about this idea for kids with egg allergies & thought it was great. This way Logan can enjoy coloring eggs without having to worry about breaking out into hives. What's really cool is that I'll write is age on the bottom each year & as he gets older we'll have a collection of egg art projects. He was really excited to paint & got paint everywhere (thankfully I changed him into painting clothes).
We had a great time hanging out as a family & doing fun things. We even started a new tradition that will be a blast in the years to come! Now that the sugar high from the chocolate bunny & the peeps have worn off, it's time to really enjoy spring.
