We had a great Easter this year, it was a 2 day event and yes its not your imagination, the kids wore the same thing both days...their spring sweaters:)
On Saturday Morning we went to the Mayor's Eggstravaganza at the Westminster community center. This is an event we have attended for several years and always enjoy. The kids like to visit the Easter Bunny... well all the kids except Olivia. They all like the bouncy house (sorry no pictures). And the last 2 years they have had a really funny magician, who has picked Taylor to be a helper 2 years in a row. It was all I could do not to push Olivia in front of him when he started to go toward Taylor. Olivia took it well, but there might be issues if Taylor gets picked next year.(link to movie will be provided if A. I can upload it, B. if I don't forget and C. well, lets just say there are a lot of reasons I might not upload something... :))
After visiting the bunny and scoring some candy we went to the kite festival .

After hours of running around at the kite festival, we went home and realized.... we had yet to dye any eggs. So after a bit of a nap, some dinner and a little crying, we dyed some eggs. (Chris only cried for a little while, no worries)
On Sunday the kids got to enjoy not one, not two, but three egg hunts. We had a pretty lame egg hunt here at the house, its just hard to have 4 kids running around finding eggs in our small living room. Luckily they were more interested in the candy in the baskets than how few eggs there were to find.

Later that morning we went to church and hunted more eggs. the day was overcast, but not too cold, although near the end of the hunt it did begin to rain a little. the kids had a great time searching for candy filled plastic eggs and even the little kids found quite a few, the bigger kids did very well however.

The last egg hunt was at Nana Diane's house, she also served us a lovely lunch, so that was my favorite egg hunt of all.

And she had cupcakes!
The kids spent the rest of the afternoon snacking on canday and reliving the glory of their finds.
