(Late) Easter egg hunt

Since Avery and I were at the hospital over the Easter weekend and then all of us were sick, we decided to postpone the hunt for chocolate until the following Sunday, which actually worked out great because it meant I got all of our candy for 50% off :) And Sunday afternoon was absolutely beautiful! Sunny and warm! In fact, a little too warm! A lot of the chocolate was a little bit melty by the time it was found....! But nobody seemed to mind :)
Avery used her shopping cart to explore the garden. The wagon was for Brogan, but he wanted Avery's cart, so there was a little bit of unhappiness at first!!

But then the first colourful eggs were found and they were filled with chocolatey goodness, and everyone was friends again!

Discovering eggs :)

After Brogan found his first egg and realised it had chocolate in it, he wasn't really interested in finding anymore!!

But he was happy to follow Avery around and watch as she found the rest of the eggs and treats :)

Pretty girl in a pretty dress :)

Smart kid.

Are we going to get any pregnant pictures?

Great Photos!

Josephine said...

Katy, maybe if someone other than me ever took the photos you'd be able to see pregnant pictures! :)

Alex said...

YAY. I haven't been on the computer for a while. I'm so glad to see Avery happy and moving around.

Avery looks so sweet in her little red daisy dress!

It looks like lots of fun. Avery's dress is beautiful and Brogan looks so grown up. Hope all is well.

Our Easter egg hunt became a little ridiculous. We do it in the living room as through the years we've never been able to predict the weather. There were so many eggs for so many people that we said the Easter Bunny might just as well have thrown them up in the air and left them where they fell. But he didn't and with a little persuading he found fun places to hide them.

Avery looks lovey in her summer dress and Brogan looks very grown up and cute!

Lovely for you that the weather was so kind. We may have had sunshine, but it still remains very cold - although (apparently) it is still within seasonal expectations.

As Evey said, the Easter egg hunt for us at FHQ was quite a spectacle with the Easter Bunny needing to stipulate how many of each sort were to be assigned/taken.

How fun!

Happy times for all and it really does look like a beautiful day (oh - I'm SO looking forward to being there in August;D) - Avery looks so pretty and it's wonderful to see Brogan in his smart Sunday clothes. Isn't it tempting sometimes to buy two of everything so there'll never be any conflict but then lessons in sharing are important too.
PS - the shed is the real star of the show Gabe.

Josephine said...

Ha! Yes Mother, you can see the shed in one picture and it's behind a tree!

It's a very fine shed! And I love Avery's pretty summer dress! All the pictures are delightful :-)

Tell us about the enormous rabbit watching proceedings.

Avery won that last year at a fundraiser at the barn where she goes horse riding :)

Paul B said...

Wow. It IS a very large prize.
