Easter Egg Hunt


Today was one of my favorite days at the our local Community Center-  the annual Mayor's Easter Egg Hunt.  I first brought Avery to this Easter Egg Hunt 3 years ago.  Ronnie was still in public accounting and working every Saturday and I thought this would be fun for Avery.  We had a blast then and we had a blast today.

We started out at our favorite spot: face painting.  Last year Avery got her face painted like a tiger.  This year she wanted something different.  She was so sweet sitting in the chair getting her face painted! Such a big girl!


This is what our girl was transformed into.


Okay, so maybe transformation isn't exactly the right word.  But the face painting artist did this butterfly in all of about 90 seconds.  She's pretty awesome and we never try to miss face painting at any event at the Community Center!

Next up was the big event, the Easter Egg Hunt! Ellie was dying to get out there and hunt eggs but Ronnie wouldn't let her. 


See?  Ellie is pouting. She can really stick out that bottom lip.

Avery did get to hunt eggs and she had a great time.  Ronnie gave her multiple pep talks while we waited.  I guess they worked because Avery filled up her basket with eggs!


We caught up with our friends and neighbors after the hunt. They have twin girls Avery's age and they are the sweetest friends (most of the time). The girls couldn't wait to get to the bouncy castle.  I'm not sure if Avery was more excited to being going to the bouncy castle or that she was getting to see some of her favorite friends.

I love this picture!
We ended the fun with lunch at a diner across the street.  Everyone filled up on burgers and fries (and tater tots and onion rings) and declared the morning Easter Egg Hunt a success!

I love how Avery is holding on to her friend Natalee's arm.  Such dolls!
We love going to events at the Community Center!  Avery always has a great time.  We can't wait until Ellie is big enough to hunt eggs too!  It will such an adventure!

More adventures to come!

1. Please do not judge Avery's fingernails in the opening picture.  Her manicurist has been a little busy (that's me and by busy I mean lazy). Also fingernail polish looks good on a 3 year olds nailsfor approximately 42.8 seconds.  And then it starts chipping.
2. Disregard my childs belly in the picture of her holding up her Easter basket.  Her stylist is still working on her spring and summer wardrobe.  Avery has been plagued with having to wear things from last year.  Oh the horror!
3. Yes I realize that there is only 1 picture of Ellie in this entire post.  I am still finding my groove with 2 kids.  While I am proud on most days that I can have them both fed and dressed by 9 AM, taking pictures of both of them is still a challenge.  I'll get better and promise to do better next time! Thank you for your understanding!
