Bonus Photos – Happy Easter!

I hope everyone is looking forward to a nice Easter weekend with good food, plenty of candy, and time spent with friends/family. We are excited about our upcoming trip to VT, both to see my family and because it means a break from the very busy work schedule Chris has had the past few weeks.

Last Sunday (Chris’ one day off in the past week) we went to Felthousen’s Florist for their little Easter celebration. We went last year and were impressed with how quiet, low-key and family oriented it was. Nothing like the craziness of standing in line waiting to see the Bunny at the mall! We were very happy to be able to go again, and Lewis enjoyed it just as much. He loved seeing the Easter Bunny and kept going back to say hi, sit on his lap, blow him kisses, etc. He was also very excited to see the baby chicks and eat a cookie and some jelly beans. We also had fun coloring eggs together a few days ago. Today we went to the “Spring Bunny Parade” at the town hall which was pretty much a bust, but oh well! Too crowded and overwhelming for Lewis, so we participated in the parade (which he did say was fun) and then went for a walk instead of getting his face painted or waiting in the giant line to sit on the Easter Bunny’s lap for 5 seconds.

A hug for the Easter Bunny!

Hanging out with his buddy the Easter Bunny again. After we got home he told us he wanted the Bunny to come to our house and also that he wanted to visit where the Easter Bunny lives.

Egg coloring! His preferred method was to plunge his hands in and grab the eggs to move them from cup to cup. His skin was rather an interesting color after this activity.

Coloring eggs soon became much less interesting than pouring colored water back and forth between different cups. Color mixing and pouring continued until Mommy declared that there was quite enough mess on the table.

Our eggs!  We started off with brown eggs, so the colors aren't as vibrant as on white eggs but they are still pretty and we had fun.

The line to see the Easter Bunny after the parade at the town hall. Lewis firmly told me that he did not want to wait to see the bunny and that we should go for a long walk, so that is what we did. We enjoyed seeing a robin and listening to red-winged black birds and other birds as we went.
