Easter/Eggs [Leap into Spring!]

Easter weekend, for us, was spent at home. We relaxed in our apartment with windows wide open for fresh air, although the brightness of the sunshine was a little deceiving and the breeze was still quite chilly. Sunday was a lazy day of sleeping in, sharing conversation over morning coffee and a fun little Easter Egg Hunt for Mikey in the afternoon.

We try not to over do it on holidays, Mikey still managed to end up with more than enough chocolate anyway though. When you’re buying it, it doesn’t seem like a whole lot, and still doesn’t until you begin to put it all together the night before Easter and realise you’re going to end up dealing with a sugar -crazed child unless you are able to ration the goodies out properly over the next week! He had a small Easter basket with a couple of chocolate rabbits, some mini pots of play dough and a box of jelly beans. For his Egg Hunt, I hid a few plastic eggs filled with chocolate in the courtyard out front of our apartment building beforehand and waited for daddy to bring him downstairs to begin. The lush green plants that have shot up so quickly this Spring afforded some good hiding places for brightly coloured eggs.

Kristi, Alicia and I were blown away by your entries in the first week of the Leap into Spring! Photo Challenge. Such beautiful and inspiring interpretations of the first prompt: Sunshine/Light. I know I’m really looking forward to seeing what you’re going to do with this week’s prompt, Easter/Eggs!

  4. Looks like he had a blast! Love the virutally monochrome colour scheme, with the bright pop of green. And, I hear ya on sugar crazed kids…mine were totally bouncing off the walls, and even managed to make themselves tired of candy. My Boy actually asked if he could please have some fruit and a glass of water, instead of eating more candy! LOL
