Easter weekend started with Egg Hunt Saturday
1) Woke up and went to All Star Sports for their big easter egg hunt
2) Grabbed lunch, went to the zoo to get more candy
3) Little one was done. We got home, hauled her in and threw her on the couch and she didn't move.
4) I took the big sis to the easter party at my employee club, which went a little crazy when the 4-6 year olds started their easter hunt zone slightly before the "go" permission happened. it was a matter of one kid going so they all go.
My friend manages all star sports and she's learned that an egg hunt launch can be tricky. she's got all these teenagers who work for her, and she tells them just to hold the kids back and repeat "do not go on the grass yet. stay off the grass. stay back." If you say anything else, like "are you ready?" or "okay" you will lose control. Well, the employee club guardians weren't paying quite as much attention. the 0-3 age group doesn't know what's going on so they're not going to jump the gun. the 7-9 year olds apparently know the rules and understand that every kid will get candy so they know to pay attention to the most authoritative person there.
4-6 year olds are tiny anarchists.
But as I said there was lots of candy and so what if a 4:00 pm egg hunt starts at 3:58, right?
I woke up Sunday at 5 to play easter bunny around our house. After mega-candy saturday I was glad that I'd made the decision to fill a lot of our eggs with little toys, necklaces, and bunny crackers.
Church was lovely, dinner at my inlaws was very nice, there was turkey. we hid eggs for the kids there too. Olive learned to say "egg" but it sounded more like "ehch", but she got the point. Now she's asleep again and josie is playing some toys I got her in her eggs, little plastic parachute people that she's throwing off the balcony.
and I think she's got another sucker, hell, that's gotta be five for today... I'm going to go cut her off now.
