Easter kind of sneaked up on me. Something about it being so incredibly late in the season, really made it seem off. Did you know how the Easter date is determined? I do, now... thanks to lovely Google, "How is the date for Easter determined?" Apparently, it is the first Sunday after the full moon, following the March equinox. Interesting, no? Anyway....
So, Easter weekend, was a week ago, yesterday. I went for my long run on Saturday and got home just in time to take a shower and only be 5 minutes late to the church sponsored Easter Egg hunt we had planned to attend. It was rainy and cold, but the kiddos seemed to have a great time, despite the fact that we rushed out of the house so quickly that not a single one of them had on a rain coat. The littles seemed to really get into it and were all about showing me their eggs. The older ones were too busy searching for older kid eggs to actually pause and get their pics taken...plus, lets face it, they really aren't as cute any more so they just don't see as much camera time. Ha!
last year, we actually managed to do it before Easter this year. Win!
Euan was especially excited about the chocolate. He would come up to me with these puppy dog eyes and hold it up and say, "please". Unluckily for him, he's my 5th kid and those puppy dog eyes aren't all that effective anymore, so his morning wasn't quite as chocolate filled as he would've liked.
Oh, and Dan and I were there too.
