We were thankful to have beautiful weather for Easter weekend, and for our neighborhood Easter egg hunt!
This is how Maddie likes to hunt eggs - straight from Anna's basket! Anna is so sweet though, she never minds. If anything, she kept coming over and looking in Maddie's basket to make sure she had plenty!

I volunteered at Anna's preschool Easter party, so the next few pictures are from that. It's so cute being able to spend time with them at school!
The school had a big basket of empty eggs that each class used - we hid the eggs all over their playground and once a kid collected 14 eggs, she could trade them in for a prize.
We did our own egg hunt at home too so Steve could get in on the fun. He is in the full throes of tax busy season by the time Easter rolls around every year, so it's an incredibly laid back day for us, and we do the egg celebrations closer to dinner time so he can be done with work for the day.
And yes, we're using gift bags as baskets, because their real baskets were filled up and waiting inside to be found! Improvisation at its finest.
Their Easter baskets were stuffed with coloring books, bubbles, chalk, princess wands, Frozen undies for Maddie who wanted some just like Anna's, and of course, chocolate Easter bunnies.
If there was ever a chocolate bunny speed eating contest, my girls would win it, no question.
Apparently the Easter bunny left something for Stevo, too. He spent the rest of Easter shooting everyone from across the yard. Anna thought it was hilarious.
The Easter bunny even thought to bring Captain K a little gift, too.

The nice thing about having our Easter celebration so late in the day is that it's closer to cocktail hour. Happy Easter, indeed!
