The weekend before Easter we had fun going to our neighborhood egg hunt and the church helicopter egg drop.
Saturday morning we took a wagon ride to the front park for the neighborhood egg hunt.
Is that a face of excitement or what?!
Ready to hunt!
And their off!
Amelia caught on real quick...picking up 2 eggs at a time! Way to go!
Success. A smiling boy and an Easter basket full of eggs!
A visit to the Easter bunny. Jack was brave and happy to get a picture taken. Amelia....not so much.
Next was the petting zoo. Both kiddos loved this and had no fear of petting the animals.
When we were finished at the neighborhood egg hunt we headed over to the church's helicopter egg drop. Jack was in love with just watching the helicopter.
On Good Friday we went with some of our friends to go visit the 'Grandmas & Grandpas' at an assisted living home. The kids dressed up in their Easter clothes and had a parade for the residents. The kids (& residents) heard the Easter story using Resurrection eggs and we sang a couple Easter songs together. It was a sweet time getting to see the residents and to bring a smile to some faces.
While there, we were surprised with a visit from the Easter bunny. That made for some big smiles for these big kids. (Not pictured is Amelia clinging to mommy. She is not a fan of big bunnies.)
