I can’t let the Easter festivities go by without a few pictures of hunting Easter eggs.
Davey got to hunt eggs three times. Well that’s not exactly true. There were three “official” hunts. There were a lot more “unofficial” hunts which finally evolved to Davey saying, “Mommy, you and I will HIDE the eggs! Then – you and I will find them!” He thought that was great fun. Hiding and finding!
When he hid the eggs, he liked to place them on similar colored surfaces. So a blue and yellow egg was carefully wedged into place on a blue comforter which was next to a yellow pillowcase. “Mommy, the eggs are camouflaged!”
There was an Easter egg hunt in our hometown on the day before Easter. That was a lot of fun. Davey hunted eggs with his cousin Addie.
On Easter we went to my aunt and uncle’s house. My uncle is Greek, and it is a Greek tradition to dye Easter eggs red. I loved how they looked, and my picture just does not do it justice. I had to use the flash, and well it’s ok, but I just thought the bowl of red eggs was just so striking.
Easter was a very rainy day, so we had to hide Easter eggs inside. Davey’s cousins Paige and Alana were so nice to hide eggs for him. He loved it.
I didn’t have much success taking good Easter egg hunting pictures inside. Here’s Davey after the hunt.
He did one final hunt with his cousin Addie.
Actually it was one hunt + 20 more “I want to hide them and find them Mommy” hunts!
Those red eggs are beautiful! I think Davey has the right idea–I’m going to hide the candy from myself and hope I can’t find it again.
Brings back memories of my kids and Easter morning.
