Last weekend you may have noticed I took a little break from blogging to enjoy Easter weekend with my family. My siblings and their significant others flew into town, and we all congregated at my parents for family fun.
Since my son was just a few days shy of turning 2 years old, we tried to make Easter a fun and celebratory event for him! First up? An Easter Egg Hunt!! This was his first real egg hunt and he loved it! He found eggs that not even I spotted while trying to assist him.
He had so much fun running around! Don’t worry, he didn’t get anywhere near the water. My mom was nice enough to hide the eggs around the yard, and slip little prizes into each egg. I know this will sound cheesy, but it truly was a joy to watch him enjoy his first real Easter.
Next up I let him go through the eggs he found. I think he was more into just opening the eggs, rather than finding out what the prizes were (mostly candy!).
After the excitement of the hunt was over, it was time to clean him up for Easter Eve Dinner! My sister bought him the adorable tie. Isn’t it cute?? He’s not exactly one for sitting/standing still. Luckily the bribe of little crackers got him to pose for at least 3 seconds. Oh man, the energy in his boy is insane! He’s such an energetic bundle of happiness. He was definitely having a blast this Easter.
Right now my son is into all things Disney and Sesame Street. His favorite television show is Jake and the Neverland Pirates. This year his basket was packed with Chuggington, Jake, Bert & Ernie, and some Hot Wheels since he loves cars.
The next morning I set out his Easter basket for him to find. At first he seemed a little hesitant to approach it (but that may have been his morning crankiness.) It was so much fun to watch him go through each little present with such excitement in his eyes. (Yes, we decided to cut his hair after dinner the night prior. It was getting too long and in his eyes.)
Overall it was such a blessed weekend! Now that my son is getting older I can’t wait to celebrate future holidays with him and my family.
