Easter

I finally took the pictures of Easter off the camera so that I can put them up. I was really excited for Luke to do easter egg hunts this year because he is big enough, or so I thought, to actually hunt for the eggs.  Our first hunt was with my family.  My sister Lisa  brought her two boys and my sister-in-law Amy brought their son and daughter.  All four of these kids are between three and six and I thought it would be great.  Of course the eggs were pretty easy to find and the kids really had fun.

 

 However, Luke lost complete interest in looking for anything as soon as he had the chocolate bunny that we gave to each of the kids.  I had to basically pick up an egg with his hand to get him to do it.  He did finally decide that he could pick up one more on his own, but he just didn’t really understand why I was trying to make him pick up plastic eggs.

 

As we took all of the kids back to open their eggs and Luke realized that there was candy in them.  He started trying to take the eggs out of the other kids baskets.  It’s a good thing they all like him.

On Easter Sunday we met up with Ron’s family and our friends the Axelrods for our annual egg hunt.  The great thing about this hunt is that it is not just for the kids.  It is always great to watch the adults wrestling over eggs.  Ron’s sister Brittany and Lisa Axelrod got into quite a wrestling match when I gave a hint as to where one of the eggs was hidden. 

Luke did slightly better with looking for eggs this time as he knew that there was candy inside, but as soon one of them broke open he was done.  

He found one egg that had broken open on the lawn and instantly started eating the candy off the ground. 

Luke was really cute with his cousin, Sydney.  He loved to just chase her around the yard playing.  Sydney wasn’t always quite as sure about him, but he thought it was great.  We all had a really fun time.

As a side note, our young women had an Easter egg hunt this week for their activity.  I took Luke with me to the park to hide the eggs and he finally figured out how to hunt the eggs.  He followed along behind me, picking up the eggs, breaking them open by himself, and eating the candy.  Unfortunately, one of the girls kept finding the empty eggs that Luke had left.
