Happy Easter – fun with kids!

Happy Easter to all my family and friends. Totally not religious by any means, so basically a fun holiday with candy, decorated eggs and Easter egg hunts. I guess you can take your photo with the Easter bunny at the mall, but he looked kind of creepy, so we passed.

This year we wanted to return to Marina’s Easter egg hunt since we had a fun time last year. These events last about 30 seconds, but still worth the drive and fun for the kids. Gotta get your spot near the rope. Everyone was telling their kids to “run to the back!” — they have them set up by age group.

This year Vincent was in the 3-4 year olds. We invited our friend Charlotte to come but she as in the 0-2 year area.

Melanie just watched from the stroller again this year. Well last year she was sleeping as these sorts of things, so she’s stepping up.

On Easter Sunday, we did opened gifts from the Easter Bunny, in the morning.

Untitled

Melanie got “little people – disney princess edition” since she loves playing with them and putting them in the toy airplane we have.

Untitled

She also got a little tea set. Mmm donuts.

Untitled

Vinny got hot wheels. He loved it!

Untitled

We then did our own egg hunt in the backyard.

Melanie watched from the blanket.

Then we tried portraits.

One word – impossible.

Untitled

Vinny wouldn’t sit still.

Untitled

Melanie kept laughing when the bunny ears would fall.

Untitled

And she loved the fake grass.

I’m glad Melanie still lets me take photos.

Untitled

Tried to catch a couple of my boy.

Just dont ask him to smile.

I had planned for them to wear a completely different outfit, but ended up with matching green by accident. A photo of all of us would have been nice, but just the girls will have to do.

We headed to the in-laws for an egg hunt, more baskets, and brunch — i made some Hawaiian Macaroni Salad. Something i never really made but always ate in Hawaii, so i found a recipe. It was pretty good but strong on the vinegar, might lessen that next time.

Vincent and Melanie had more Easter baskets waiting for them. Some super cool trinkets, Cars bubbles for Vin, a real looking stuffed bunny for Mel.

Untitled

Super amazed by the light-up wind up toy.

Untitled

This child has a thing for eating eyeballs i guess.

More plastic grass fun!

They had a blast laughing and playing with each other. It’s such a joy to watch them interact and truly love each other’s presence.

Untitled

We also died Easter Eggs. I bought this kit when i was at the supermarket with Vincent. He kept calling them “Paas Crazy Eggs” even though they weren’t Paas brand. How the heck does he know about Paas? LOL! He amazes me sometimes.

Until next year!
