Easter is one of my favorite holidays! I love the egg hunts, time with family, the chocolate candy, and getting the girls dressed up for Easter Sunday. This Easter was a very busy one. It started on Saturday with an egg hunt at our church. We took the girls, and a couple of our neighbors and their kids came with us. Here is a picture of Ava with her best friend Cami, who lives next door. They are two peas in a pod for sure!
Here are all six kids from the cove lined up ready to hunt eggs:
Here is Ava feeling defeated because another kid found "the golden egg". So sad!
Here is Elia running to find as many eggs as possible:
Here is Ava once the egg hunt was over. I had to scoop up some eggs for her and put them in her basket. She was so upset over not finding the golden egg that she didn't want to hunt anymore once it was found.
After the egg hunt, we went to the petting zoo part of the church event. Ava loved the bunnies. I think Elia thought she was too old for the bunnies so she didn't hold any of them.
As soon as we left the egg hunt, we headed to the Carters for Easter lunch. The girls enjoyed spending time with their grandparents. Once we ate lunch over there, we went straight over to my parent's house for Easter dinner. We celebrated Easter over there with the whole family. Even LeeAnn came down from college to be with the family for Easter.
After we ate hamburgers, it was time for Grammy and Papa's egg hunt. The four kids all lined up at the starting line and waited for Grammy to yell "GO"!
Ava was way more into this egg hunt than the one at her school and church. You see, these eggs had candy AND money in them. She did not consider this a "babyish" egg hunt at all!
Once all the egg hunts were over, we headed home to get ready for church the next day. The Easter bunny came, and the girls were up at 6:45 to see what he brought.
Once they had their fill of chocolate for breakfast, they got dressed and we headed for church. Here they are in their pretty Easter dresses:
