Easter is literally right around the corner. And today we were revving up our engines getting ready for the fun filled Holiday tomorrow. Our family decided to make it a weekend of celebration rather then just the one day.
This morning when Logan woke up I put the Prince of Egypt on for him while I got ready. Normally no TV in the morning, but since this is the story of Moses, and perfect for the Holiday, I thought "why not?". He was totally into the movie, and I got us all packed up for the Claremont Spring Celebration.
I knew that the Easter egg hunt started at 10:30, but I wanted to get there early so we could join in all the other activities. We got there about 9:30sh...and it was PACKED. So many people. When we first got there, we stood by the stage and watched the magician. Very entertaining, even for my one year old. We then went to visit the Easter Bunny. We only waved and blew kisses to him though, because we(my son) only love him from a distance! After that we went to the police cars, and Logan got to sit in the back of one. He loved it, all the kids seemed to love it!.
My mom, Sis and her kiddies finally got there to join us. We took them to the petting zoo. By this time it was getting close to 10:30 so we didn't have time to get in line to play with the animals. But the kids still loved putting there fingers through the fence and watching them. After the petting zoo we all walked to the egg hunt area. They had it divided into three sections, 0-3, 4-6, and 7-10 yr olds. Luckily our kids were all 3 and under so we stayed together. Then the police sirens started and the hunt began. For the ages 4 and up, it was crazy!! Those kids were vultures. I was sooo happy my son is still in the toddler age group. Remind me to teach him to fight before he is 4. For the little ones they did things a little different, they handed out a bag of eggs and candy to each of them. Each kid walked up with their basket and got it filled. Not as much fun, but perfect for the age group.
When all was said and done we let the kids run around some more. Eat a little candy and then run some more. I chased my son around a bit and we played a fake shooting game using our fingers as guns. Then it was time to go home. He fell asleep on the way home! I was happy because I knew I had a lot of cleaning to do today...but then I got home and realized my AMAZING husband already did all the cleaning for me. I'm so lucky!!
I would also like to recommend a couple of other blogs, if you are looking for some fun activities to do with your kids. I was reading some blogs that I follow this morning and found some very cute, fun ideas to prepare for tomorrow. I hope everyone gets a chance to take a look. Happy Easter!!
