After watching Ian go on his Easter egg hunt this year, I've come to the conclusion it's a lot more fun watching your child hunt than the fun I remember having when I hunted. We did our Easter egg hunt on Saturday, after we dyed eggs. Ian dyed two of them, but then asked to get down. Apparently playing blocks with Grandpa is more fun than dyeing Easter eggs.
The Easter Bunny came after Ian's nap. He walked out onto our deck and did a huge intake of air. It was so cute watching him hunt eggs. Instead of looking around the area he was standing in, he would look straight out. Because of this, he would see an egg clear across the yard. He crisscrossed across the yard so many times. We hid about 15 eggs, and he found at least 10 of them on his own. Such a good job!
If you'd like to see if live, go ahead and watch. Please ignore the camera work- I kept getting distracted watching Ian have such fun I'd forget to look through the video camera, I'd just look over it instead. At one point, Lacey (grandma and grandpa's puppy) got out through a hole in the fence, and I followed her with the camera. Needless to say, I won't have a job in film-making anytime soon.
After playing bells at church for both services on Easter Sunday, we headed over to Marlena and Noah's for lunch and more hunting. As always, he had an Easter basket brimming with gifts. Then they had their own mini-hunt for Ian of money-filled Easter eggs, with a piggy bank for when he was finished.
