Easter prep

On Saturday we colored Easter Eggs. I bought two dozen and tried the bake method instead of boiling. It was so much easier! The kids quickly went through two dozen and requested more. Next year I’ll have to spring for three dozen!! :)

After lunch and a brief rest we headed to the skating rink to skate with the Easter Bunny! The kids were really hoping he knew how to skate, after our “Skate with Santa” experience in which Santa didn’t know how to skate! Fortunately the bunny did know how to skate, unfortunately he wasn’t terribly social with the kids. Oh well . We had fun anyway.

The kids all got a plastic egg with a candy inside.  Eve's egg also had a "grand prize winner" ticket.  She won a pretty cool glow stick thing.

Eve kept talking about how fast she was going, "the fastest person in here!"  I was just happy that she was moving fast enough that I didn't have to stop and wait for her, instead I could slowly roll along with her.  :)

We got home around 4:30pm and by 5:30pm Eve was a ball of tears. She kept sobbing, “I don’t know why I’m crying.” Oh baby, I know why! I got her snuggled in bed eventually and then went to work with my late night plans
