Easter Egg Hunts

Last year Ethan wasn't walking yet so he didn't get to participate in any Easter egg hunts besides crawling for eggs in our living room. I was really excited to bring him to some events this year. We even practiced with him at home putting eggs in the new basket tote I got for him.

We went to a local egg hunt and he was so excited, I had to keep him from running and getting an early start because he was so pumped. There were a lot of eggs, or so I thought.

They divided the hunt into age ranges and Ethan was in the 0-4 group. When they yelled, "go" all of the older kids were off and running and the eggs were gone in about 60 seconds! There were a lot of parents shoveling eggs in their kids' baskets which I thought was crazy. Ethan was a little overwhelmed but started picking up eggs. He only ended up with 6 eggs, but he didn't care, he loved it. I was the one who was annoyed! I thought they should have had a 0-2 range and a 3-4 to keep it fair, but whatever. Ethan had fun, which is all that mattered.

After the hunt, Michael and I decided we would just do our own egg hunt from now on, so we did just that. On the day before Easter we went to a big field behind our house and set up Ethan's own personal egg hunt.

He had a ball and it was the most beautiful day. He was funny though because once he opened a few eggs and saw there were hot wheels (his new obsession) in them he just wanted the two cars and he walked around with those. It took us a while for him to get the rest of the eggs because he was content with the few he had already picked! I think we will definitely continue to do our own in the future unless we can find a local egg hunt that isn't so crazy.

Daddy added some bubbles for extra fun too!
