For the past two years we have joined our wonderful friends at Village Baptist for their annual Easter egg hunt. Last year it was so unbelievably cold that everyone was completely miserable. This year the kids hunted indoors. Yay!! The Kindergarten area was taped off and included several fun toys that the kids either had to crawl or dig through to get to the eggs. This was in addition to the hundreds of eggs that were just scattered across the floor as well. Within minutes, Liberty's bucket was completely full! She had so much fun. Instead of just focusing on one area and gathering as many eggs as she could, she kept running from place to place picking up one egg at a time. She discovered pretty quickly that there were "special" eggs. These were plastic eggs shaped like animals or ones that were sparkly or had some other unique characteristic. She specifically hunted for those extra special ones. There were so many eggs that every child had more than their little baskets could hold =).
When the 1 year olds went I sat Emory down next to a giant pile of eggs. She sat there for a little while and then grabbed two eggs. She made no attempt to move any further and was completely content to chew on the two eggs she had retrieved =).
My favorite part was, of course, that they got to wear their matching Easter dresses! Too bad I forgot to get a picture of them together.
