Easter Eggcitement!

We visited the family in Livingston for Easter. This was really Olivia's first exposure to all the excitement that Easter brings. She's been around for 3 Easters now, but Easter 2006 she was only a few months old, and last Easter, she was really too young to really enjoy things. Although, she was quite fond of the Yogo Bits that Nanni hid inside plastic eggs for her. This year I wanted to make sure she really got to experience Easter.

Here we are with Aunt Amanda and Aiden coloring our eggs. It was very difficult to convince the little ones to let the eggs dry. The egg coloring kit companies need to invent a quick drying egg color. Hmmm, on 2nd thought, I'll keep that to myself and work on inventing it in my spare time.

Here she is putting some Shrek stickers on the eggs. I didn't catch it on film, but before the decorating began, she climbed up to the table, grabbed a colored egg, and bit right into it. She promptly spit out the mouthful of shell, and we used that egg later for deviled eggs. She is so sneaky!

Bunny Olivia waking up on Easter morn. We had an Easter egg hunt inside that was very exciting for both Aiden and Olivia.

We also had a BRIEF egg hunt outside. It was way too cold and windy to stay out too long but the kids got to collect a couple eggs each.

Here is Olivia's batch.

Aiden was so cute! He emptied his pail of eggs into his Tonka dump truck and started motoring them around the driveway. Then, he dumped out his egg load onto the dirt and accidentally stepped on one of the eggs.

So, it was a wonderful weekend visiting with the family and getting to see the kids enjoy Easter. We finished off the visit with a trip to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman to see dinosaurs! More on post!
